Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a sports simulation based on the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Players use a series of punches, kicks and grapples to knock out opponents or make them give up. These can range from flying knees to the face to chokeholds. Blood sometimes shoots out after strikes, while fighters show signs of injury such as cuts to the face. In between fights, ring girls wearing skimpy outfits briefly parade around the ring to signal the next round. The game is playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.
Is It Any Good?
UFC sports an impressive level of depth. Players can customize their fighters' looks, style, and outfits, down to even the color of their mouthpiece. There is plenty to learn in order to master the fighting, from simple strikes to takedowns and grapples. Fortunately, the game is still easy to pick up and play, as players can easily mash buttons to deliver flurries of punches and kicks. The fighters look realistic, closely mirroring their real-life counterparts.
Fights are intense and unpredictable. If you let your guard down for a second, opponents can unleash a powerful punch to knock you out cold. Attacks also look painful, based on the grimaces and other expressions from opponents on the receiving end. With practice, you will learn how to deliver that crucial punch that puts opponents on the mat. Overall, UFC provides an exciting alternative for gamers tired of the standard boxing and wrestling games.
