So, after years of waiting for a proper fighting game, UFC 2 shows up in March. It was better than its sequel UFC (2014) in terms of gameplay. As I was waiting for this game eagerly I loved it.
EA Sports Ultimate Fighting Championship 2 was developed by EA Canada and published by EA. This is a mixed martial art (MMA) fighting game. Its cover featured one of the best fighters in the world: Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey and Conor “The Notorious” McGregor.
Rousey was one of the most decorated fighters. So she on the cover was perfect. But to add another athlete, EA and UFC 2 decided to come up with Fight for the Cover. At UFC 194, the winner of Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor and McGregor won, knocking out the champ in 13 seconds.
Gameplay resembles exactly like the UC fights. From over 250 fighters, each fighter has his own set of moves. The fighters perform a range of kicks, punches, grapples, submissions and takedown. This one has modes like Career mode, Knockouts mode, and Ultimate team mode.
From the previous version, the game had drastically improved with graphics. EA took into consideration a large amount of fan feedback that was given from the previous game and improved in this one. Additions are made to prove that. In real UFC sometimes first punch will knock down the opponent ant IT IS ALL OVER!!!!!.
Unfortunately, in the game, you can’t do that. There is no tutorial and you need to complete practice mode to understand the game. The carrier mode is very easy to finish and very short, it lacks depth. But many aesthetical details are also present; for example, fighters will suffer visible damage during a fight. Other details include a crowd, referees, octagon girls, an announcer Bruce Banner, and commentary from Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg. It includes Bruce Lee and Mike Tyson.
They have a great multiplayer gameplay too. The knockout mode is same as the fight but the without takedowns. The new Knockout Physics System allows players to knock out opponents dynamically based on finishing hits’ momentum and strength. The damage to an opponent looks so real, blocking improved and the most significant addition of female fighter. Other features include Custom Event Creator, Title Chase.
So get ready to fight like your favorite fighter and imagine yourself like I do. So enter the octagon and knock and submit them.
