Deep control scheme ; Great animation ; Online broadcast mode ; Robust career mode

Steep learning curve ; Roster feels empty

For a sport as popular as mixed martial arts it is hard to believe there has been only one real contender in the gaming space thus far. EA Sports is hoping to remedy that with their latest addition to the lineup simply title MMA. Developed by Tiburon...

Hey you, do you enjoy watching steroid-fuelled, almost naked, shaven-headed men violently rubbing against each other like it's the last days of the Roman Empire? If so, you're probably already acquainted with the wondrous face-smashing world of MMA,...

EA Sports MMA (PS3, 360) Review


EA enters the MMA market with a solid title that may eventually take the throne, but is still lacking in some departments.

Great online features ; Fun and unique submission systems ; Graphics are great ; Different rings and rules for fights

Roster may not be impressive to casual MMA fan ; Linear career mode ; Presentation is lacking in some degrees

EA took a huge step in the right direction with their first MMA title, and with some work it could be the perfect MMA game. The controls are great and the combat is fluid, but the career mode, while in-depth, can be repetitive and linear. The...

EA Sports: MMA Review for the PS3


Take this! And a bit of that! And some of this!

Control scheme encourages real MMA fighting; Easy to learn, difficult to master; Online integration like Live Broadcast; But you won't care because it plays so well

Uninventive single player career; Where are all the superstars

EA Sports MMA Review


Intuitive controls, a lengthy career mode, and impressive online options make this mixed martial arts game a serious contender.

Controls are intuitive and responsive ; Rewarding Career mode ; Good options for lag-free online play ; Fights force you to focus on defense as much as offense

Unconvincing AI opponents ; Camera gets a little crazy sometimes ; Load times are occasionally longer than fights ; Strikes don't always feel like they have much power behind them

If you play Career mode on the default difficulty setting (there are two more-difficult options that improve things somewhat), the AI opponents don't always put up much of a fight, particularly early on. You can win fights simply by spamming jabs over...

EA Sports MMA Review


MMA is a salvo across THQ's bow.

Good graphics, presentation, realistic feel; loads of fun; cool online features

Lacking many fan favorites from the UFC

EA Sports MMA is a strong first entry that is only slightly held back by the lack of more common fighters from the UFC, but the inclusion of big names like Randy Couture, Fedor Emelianenko, Bob Sapp and Tim Sylvia ease the blow. It's great to see some...

EA Sports MMA


Even without the UFC license, this one deserves a title shot.

EA Sports MMA wrestles away the belt from the reigning champ with its stellar combat that feels much closer to the genuine article than what we’ve seen elsewhere. While its modes don't span the same breadth of other sports titles, it gets things like...

EA Sports MMA


It's not often that EA finds themselves in the position of the challenger with something to prove, but after the incredible success of last year's UFC game, and this year's entry taking a fantastic game and making it even better, EA Sports MMA...

In the end, EA Sports MMA is a fantastic foundation for the series, and delivers a very fun experience overall. However, it suffers from some robotic animations that cripple the intensity of the fights. I think future installments would easily rectify...
