Excerpt: The jump made from the 2009 to the 2010 edition of THQ’s UFC Undisputed franchise was huge in my opinion. As evidenced by my review , I thoroughly enjoyed all the MMA trimmings this year’s version brought to the table. If I had to describe it in a single word, ‘packed’ would probably be my first choice.
Conclusion: UFC Undisputed 2010 on the PSP is a game that impresses and frustrates in equal measure. The sheer amount of features and the depth of the fighting mechanics mark it as a successful port of the original (a title that is already well established as offering a quality fighting experience); unfortunately it often struggles on a technical level and while it is admirable that Yukes have done everything that can to make the PSP version as authentic as possible, this has come...
Excerpt: You know how MMA fighters use every muscle in their body during matches? Well, UFC Undisputed 2010 uses every single button on the PSP – there’s not a single button that doesn’t do anything, it really is a deep game and one that will certainly appease fans of simulations and those who enjoy the spectacle of the human chess game that is Mixed Martial Arts.
Excerpt: There are few sports I enjoy more than MMA. I was thrilled when the UFC finally got a competently made video game from THQ. Like any video game, UFC Undisputed isn’t without its flaws, but it’s the closest thing to an actual simulation of the sport fans can get. Though the console version of the title came out some four months ago, a portable version of UFC Undisputed 2010 for the PSP was only recently released.
Excerpt: UFC Undisputed 2010 hit the console scene a few months ago to receive much praise from UFC fans and video game critics alike. The vast amount of fighting moves, excellent presentation and sheer amount of gameplay options were obvious reasons why it has been doing so well. Four months later, a port of the console version has hit the Playstation Portable from developer Yuke�s Media Creations.
Conclusion: I’m not comparing UFC Undisputed 2010 on the PSP to the PS3/360 version and docking points -– I’m just letting you know where it stands as it is a direct port of that title. When I step back and take in the whole picture that is UFC PSP, I like it. The controls work and were easier for me to get into than their dual-stick brothers, there is a lot to do and plenty of unlockables, and it looks good.
Conclusion: There’s little point in buying this if you own the PS3 version, unless you really must play UFC games wherever you are. It’s still a neat little package, though, offering everything you need from a portable brawler.
Excerpt: To hear UFC president Dana White describe it, Mixed Martial Arts is the fastest-growing sport in the world. And it's hard to be proven wrong when a sport that was only even legal in a couple of states fifteen years ago is now one of the biggest in the country. Several games that attempt to simulate the full range of MMA have been made, and the UFC games from THQ and Yuke's have been, by far, the best efforts made yet.
