UFC Undisputed 2010 will also introduce players to three new gameplay modes. Title Mode will enable players to fight through one of UFC’s five official weight classes to earn and defend a championship belt.

In addition, the game’s Tournament Mode will allow players to explore up to 16-player individual and team tournaments within one system. The mode will be compatible with both UFC and created fighters, as well as deliver two unique gameplay styles. Arcade-style play will offer the ability to repeat a fighter’s appearance, while simulation play will limit fighter representation to one appearance.

UFC Undisputed 2010 First Impressions

UFC Undisputed 2010 First Impressions

By Albert Iskander - Posted Feb 08, 2010

Last year, THQ unleashed its first foray into the world of mixed martial arts. UFC Undisputed 2009 had moments of greatness, but had a few lingering issues. The fighter’s movements weren’t fluid, the submissions needed some more work, and the cage itself didn't play into the actual gameplay. It was just a barrier.

At a recent event, I got a first glimpse of UFC Undisputed 2010, with the ever dangerous mammoth Brock Lesnar gracing the cover, and things have definitely changed. The match showcase featured Mike Swick, who was in attendance, against Paulo Thiago, who ended up defeating Swick the next day at the real-world UFC 109. The demo put all of the previous issues to rest. The animations and transitions between holds and submission were much smoother. It actually felt like a real life Pay-Per-View event as opposed to a ridged fighting simulation.

The presentation just didn’t stop with what we saw in the gameplay. The graphics and models, which looked fantastic in the previous title, were much crisper. As Neven Dravinski, producer of UFC Undisputed 2010, loves to say during his presentations, “the physics permeates every aspect of the game”. The blood and sweat look as real as the mixed martial artists themselves. I also noticed upgrades to the fans and camera crew. At one point, Swick had Thiago up against the cage and the camera guy stepped down from the stool to get a better shot of the action. This might seem like a minor change to most, but this subtle addition delivers a more TV style presentation and brings the game to life.

Speaking of the octagon, players can post their opponents up ala Randy Couture and use the metal fence to their advantage. The game also features more moves, submissions, fighting styles, and mixed martial artists to the card. Not only that, you will have the ability to switch stances and deliver left handed blows and have more options when it comes to bobbing and weaving incoming barrage of kicks and punches.

From what I saw so far, the game is shaping up to be a winner. UFC Undisputed 2010 promises new modes, deeper customizations, more online options, and a complete upgrade from the previous version.  

Keep checking back to G4tv.com for the latest and greatest as we approach the May 25th PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release.

    UFC Undisputed 2010 has best sports game written all over it and, like its predecessor, could win the award. UFC 2009 was a great game that tested how well MMA would work on modern day game consoles. UFC 2010 seems to improve upon that and offer new content with more depth to career mode.

    The franchise that saved THQ! I love it. 2009 was a great prototype, now they just have to keep improving on it. I already can't wait for UFC 2011, frankly.

    I loved UFC 2009 and while I noticed the issues brought up in the review they weren't that big a deal to me. That being said, the new features being touted for 2010 sound awesome and should make the game even better than before.

    Although I do hope the create-a-fighter and career modes aren't nearly so menu heavy, or at least have less load times.
