EA Sports UFC absolutely SUCKS.

UFC_ea_sports_game_box

I can’t stand the new EA Sports UFC game. I bought it, excited as could get and it turned out to be dog shit. The game is a FRACTION as good as UFC Undisputed 3, and even 2010. I’ll tell you some reasons why before thinking about it gets my blood pressure up again.

If you’ve even played UFC Undisputed 3, you will hate this game unless you’re an idiot. That is a fact, even though it’s really just an opinion. This game has a smaller roster, by far. It has poorly animated moves and punches. Sometimes, the fighter’s arm or leg will twist or twirl in the air or on the ground. The punches are slow-nightmare punches. The ones you throw that don’t hurt the guy who ends up kicking your ass (or in my dream’s case, gets his eyeballs gouged with a hooked-thumb).

The game lags MAJORLY BAD online. I don’t know what the netcode is for this, but I assume its a 10 MB file for every hit, since I seemed to experience delays of a second or more for every swing in some matches. At one point, I stopped swinging, mentioned it (since I was Twitching, a phrase that would have sounded like I was on speed in 1990), and my character took two more swings before stopping.

Bruce Buffer, who in the previous game, did his signature, lively voice-work, delivers a completely unrealistic lackluster performance here. He almost just casually says the line, while his character in the game mimics someone screaming their guts out. This is poor, lazy voice-recording by people who should be fired or who should get a crash course in quality.

Electronic Arts also displayed its cheap nature by removing at least one fighter’s tattoos, making the guy a vanilla version of his real-life counterpart. Read more on that here.

I don’t know where to begin with the submission system but here is the best example I can offer. Do you remember the game “Simon”?

Image

Imagine having two of these, one under each hand, and attempting to play simultaneously. THAT is how the submission system in this game is!

What you actually must do is use the right joystick to block your opponent as he presses UP, DOWN, LEFT or RIGHT to escape. Then, a few seconds in, a light blue bar will appear in a direction, UP DOWN LEFT OR RIGHT, and you must press in that direction with the left joystick – all the while, still countering your opponent with the right joystick. You have around one second to press the direction with the left joystick and then your opponent will escape.

In previous games, you would rotate the joystick around in a circle to avoid your opponent who was doing the same and the submission move either advanced or was slowed and countered depending on who progressed. In this title, it actually functions like the fighters are slow, turn-based robots. Reality-wise, it’s terrible. Game-wise, it’s also terrible because it’s incredibly difficult to do a submission vs. relatively easy to escape one. Add that you must advance the move, for some insane reason, and it makes it look like you’re studying a frame-by-frame account of a fight. If you hear or see someone defending this submission system as better over previous UFC games, you know they are an idiot.

The blocking in this game could have been a redeeming quality but unfortunately, it is nothing of the sort. For some dipshitted reason, EA chose to use the right TRIGGER button in the blocking process. That’s right – I said IN the process, because you can’t just block by pressing R2. You now must press R2 and Triangle, Square, X, or Circle (or whatever the XBOX One’s stupid buttons are). Doing so will allow you to block either high or low. If you miraculously hit the button combination at the right moment, you might even parry a punch giving you a chance to throw a slow-molasses punch back at your foe.

Trigger buttons are the WORST choice for block in wrestling and fighting games. They take a second to press, vs. a button that presses instantaneously. Why is this a problem, some moron may ask? Because all of the punch or grabble buttons are INSTANT buttons and this one takes time to press! So for that reason, in itself, it’s a flaw. But in this game’s case, you have to press an instantaneous button AND a trigger button and somehow, do it at the same time. Stupid stupid stupid.

I hate the menus in EA games. This one is awful too. You have 4 or 5 windows you must move side-by-side through to do whatever you want. It isn’t organized very well and it takes a month to get to options if you want to do something.

The commentary is pretty good but it always has been in UFC games. However, it’s not as good as the previous games.

The graphics in this game, for the fighters, look insanely good. Too good, in fact, because not enough time was spent on punch animations, falling animations and other movements. So, even though it looks like two real guys are standing there, it also looks like they are 90 year old men in a play fight when one punches the other, the collission doesn’t have the glove even touching the face, and the man lays down (not falls down, lays down comfortably) to simulate the effect of being knocked out. You can’t even punch your opponent while they are DOWN after knocking them out! That’s something you could always do previously.

The training modes are not very good, either. For starters, the “intro” training you do when you first play the game will not be enough. You will get your ass destroyed if that is all you know and go online (trust me). So you must go through many hours in the training section to learn how to do things in this game that have been changed from previous UFC titles for no reason. You must use R1 to throw some punches, meaning you must have your middle fingers on the triggers. Some punches require you to use L2 + L1! Both triggers on the same side at once. I don’t normally hold my controller that way, so this game is audacious enough to tell me I need to use a trigger with my middle finger. Yeah, not a natural movement guys.

Also, your training partner is an idiot in many instances. I was doing a session where I had to dodge the guys punches and throw hits back, but he would simply stand there for many seconds at a time, without throwing a punch! Then, he would open up on me, somehow hitting the exact opposite spot I was blocking every time. Often with combos that didn’t even make sense. This is supposed to be a training partner – not a jerk head butt face.

This is just lackluster EA Sports trash and for the people out there saying it’s a good game or a “respectable first round” they’re full of major shit. It isn’t worth a damn and I’m going to take it back.

UPDATE: 6/20/2014

i’ve been playing more and I noticed something. The submission system seems to change colors sometimes, and I can’t figure out what it’s for. Maybe which corner you’re in? I don’t know, but this adds another LEVEL of confusion to the already ridiculous submission system. Just as you figure it out, they change the colors for the joysticks. Is EA Sports Canada or whoever made this trying to be as complexed as possible?

Also, on a Playstation 4, it’s unacceptable for your game to lag when it’s offline but this game does. Punches and kicks and movements and button combinations lag so obviously, if someone doesn’t notice it, it’s not because “theirs is working right,” – it’s because they’re not perceptive enough to notice things.

Here is what I thought about UFC Undisputed 2010. Or check out what I thought about UFC Undisputed 3, compared to this!

  1. Your comments tell me a few things about you. One, your hand coordination sucks. You can’t push L1 and L2 at the same time? That’s pathetic. Two, you just like complaining. Trigger button has a delay on press? Either you lack the ability to find the button or the strength to push it…either way see a doctor. He will either say you are mentally challenged or experiencing muscle deterioration. Third, you’re incredibly stupid. The submission system confuses you? I just submitted four opponents in a row without a problem. If you can’t handle moving two joy sticks at the same time you must hate every shooter game ever made. If something as simple as two different colors throws you off I would suggest you quit playing video games. I would hate to see you play tetris. “Why the f**K are the blocks different colors?”

    1. Congratulations on your 4 submissions in a row. I’m working on Gracie Pride and just submitted Rogerio Nogueira and Jon Jones in career mode, so it isn’t that I can’t do the submissions – I can. The problem is that this system is fundamentally frustrating. When some of the indicator colors are the exact color of the mat, you can’t see what to do in time.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the game. I checked with my doctor and he said EA’s UFC sucks, too. In fact, the search engine terms for people finding this article include:
      “i hate the sub system in ea ufc”
      “ea sports ufc submission system sucks”
      “ea sports ufc submission slow”
      (those were actually three in a row, today)

      The list goes on, full of people typing “EA’s UFC sucks” or going with something more specific about it that sucked. Whatever the case may be, thanks for the Web traffic.

      1. If you’re going to quote me you should actually quote me. I never said the submission was great or the game was great. I said the system was easy. Apparently you lack the reading comprehension and mental capacity to tell the difference. How dumb are you? That’s a serious question. My saying learn how to play the game doesn’t say it’s a good game. It says it’s easy and you clearly haven’t figured it out when you call parts of it confusing.

I mean the punches are the weakest and slowest shit I have EVER seen in a game. The Bellator Arcade game is ten times better than disgusting inbred excuse for a game and that game was basically trash.

        1. Hey, little kid, that’s exactly what you’re doing. When you call someone a “faggot” and tell them they need to learn to play the game, that means you think it works perfectly and thus, you are defending it. I’ve got the Gracie Pride trophy and can pull off submissions as well as anyone – and that being said, the submission system sucks.

          See, because you’re a slow, brainless kid, you think people like me say things suck because we aren’t good at them. Have you read my FTL review? I suck at that game and absolutely love it. See, this Website is for intelligent people (not you). I not only stated that the submission system sucked but I also gave many reasons why. But I also went out of my way to master submissions.

          You’re a complete idiot and you’ve yet to make a reply in this thread without insulting someone, because you take it very personally that someone doesn’t like a game that you enjoy. Why? Because A) You’re dumb. B) You’re a kid. C) Both. I’m going to go with C.

  2. Everything said here is pretty much my opinion as well. The striking is sluggish and riddled with clipping issues as well as plenty of over-powered strikes. The game also seems to beg you to constantly throw strikes if only for the random Health Events they will yield. (also the move set is extremely limited.)

    The submission system is a huge mess of an over complicated system that is more luck than timing based. Even though I myself sucked at it, I would say the shine sub system worked the best with the cat and mouse system of UFC 3 coming in second. (also you can still spam a submission attempt if you somehow do wind up in trouble.)

    The grappling however is the real low point in this game for me however. Filled with awkward pauses and next to no way to land any real damage unless your opponent is the cpu or wholey incompetent on the ground. Couple that with the mind numbing inclusion of full guard to mound transitions and it’s really obvious that the devs just had no idea what to do with the grappling side of the game at all.

  3. I’m colour blind and can pull off submissions. I think maybe you’re just shit at the game? If you fight properly and use combos when there’s an opening the punches are actually quite fast and animations are good. Maybe try doing the career in hard and spend a lil more time training then you might get the hang of the game and enjoy it like most people are. Knob.

  4. Although I agree with some points on here, I also enjoy the game. Like you stated the graphics are insane, may have spent too much time on it. You just seem to have some issues with the way you play. Although, it is quite different and not quite as good as the older UFC games, once you get used to it the sub system isn’t as horrible as people make it out to be. If games weren’t challenging what fun would they be? Only a grade school kid would be confused by it.

  5. I cant even get my guy to start a submission, I just get battered by the guy on the bottom as I try to do it R1 + push right stick left right up or down, does nothing, works in the training mode though, I did a guillotine submission in training & the guys head isn’t even under the guys arm or trapped at all, really bad. I don’t like that you don’t see the damage on the other fighters face at the end of the round like in the other UFC games & that you cant do follow up punches when you get a KO so you just stand there throwing punches at thin air & look like a retard in the replay.

You can tell the developers creators and everyone included in making this game know nothing about ufc, where is the the touching of the gloves, why can you only view entrances during a title fight, why does it take 16 consecutive wins until you get a title shot in career mode, how come I only fight caf idiots instead of actual real ufc fighters, why do I get the same video messages over and over in career mode, how come I am forced to retire after I get promised a title fight during my last fight, why can you not pounce on an opponent after rocking them, oh my god I could vent for hrs on how this game is a complete failure. I just bough the xbox one for this game! Now I’m taking both back. Graphics are amazing, menu and options suck, wow I can play online.

    Again EA has ruined another game by covering up huge flaws with pretty graphics and morons are too dumb and gullible to know the difference.
    I feel every fighter pretty much feels the same to fight with, theres no diversity between move sets.
    The ground game is so shallow and boring, and theres no lead up to knocking someone out, when your ground and pounding you get no sense of when the fight is going to end…couple of jabs and the figgts over and your sitting there like you just watched a romantic comedy with the mrs and not a big epic ufc match.
    Commentary is robotic, submission I think an improvement from undisputed 3 but personally I liked the shine system best.
    EA should give this title back to THQ and stick to makng shit recycled madden and fifa every year.

  11. I’ve recently become a fan of UFC and really enjoyed Undisputed 3. I got EA UFC and on the plus side, it’s really set my personal bar for game graphics. Now for the bad stuff.
    The controls, as you said, are WAY too complex. For my first few fights in career mode, I just spammed R1+square/triangle for superman punches until I knocked him out. And then there’s the ground game. I get taken to the ground and why do I get taken to the ground? I’ve pressed R2 and pushed the right stick down, shouldn’t that stop it? LOLNOPE. I can’t defend against takedowns, I can’t defend against transitions in the clinch or on the ground. Which means that as soon as I’m on the ground, I’m turning the right stick every which way to try and get on top so I can at least stand up again. What more? When I stand up, my opponent stays on the ground for about 5 whole seconds, allowing his head to go back to full health, eliminating the chances of a knockout. I didn’t have much trouble with the submission system as I tend to keep clear and thankfully, not a lot of guys try and take me down to the mat. It still pissed me off big time, though and I currently have a swollen knuckle and a broken controller.

    Oh, another thing, the reversing in general. By the time you do all the shit to, say, parry a punch or kick, the guy’s already hit you. You get a 0.001 second window to do the stuff or you’re done for. And my sparring partner in career mode was ridiculously OP. I was overall of 59 or something and he’s countering ALL of my punches. Oh, and all this is on beginner difficulty.

        The oponent holds the R button the entire game and their stamina never drains (offline it would)

        Most unreleastic sports game ever made. They should never have tried.

        Why in the world, can demetrious johnson do a takedown on roy nelson????? Different divisions but you get my point.

        Parrying is so slow in this game you can barely counter attack sometimes

        Submission is the dumbest part of the game by far, it is way too hard to defend against a sub, pressing R and down or whAtever, and also the transition system is broken as hell.

        Opponents hold the R button or whTever Against you on the ground, and hold you to the ground and you can never get up even if their stamina is at 0 percent and yours is full.

        Dumbest game ive ever spent time to learn and master.

    Undisputed resembled Rockem Sockem Robots more than a real fight, especially in the striking mechanics/physics.

    I was hoping EA UFC would play like a hybrid of Fight Night Championship and build off the good things EA MMA did right, but alas, they fell short. Fight Night was amazing while EA MMA was flawed, but on the right track.

    I’m amazed that EA UFC was made by the same team that made Fight Night… in disbelief, even. How can they understand striking mechanics so well in boxing, but show a very poor grasp of MMA?

Not being able to deliver a big punch to a knocked out opponent like the old games is boring. A lot of good punches I’ve landed should knock people out yet it’s the punches that don’t even connect that knock my opponents out. They get tangled up sometimes to where the glitch reminds me of two cartoon characters fighting. Where’s the rest of the fighters? Where is Matt Hughes?!?! Yes he retired but so did Liddell. I want to be one of the most dominant welter weights ever. I liked the old pride arena and style too but now that’s gone. One thing I’ve always wanted was open weight class fights. They had them in Japan and the first few UFCs and though they don’t do it now in the UFC they should be able to add it in the video game!

    How shitty can the team at EA be to remove aspects from the old UFC games like RUNNING??? why can’t I run across the octagon when my opponent is stumbling backwards and I’m fucking stuck walking or shuffling? forward.. SMH EA. I was able to run in UFC 09, no?

    Where is the killer instinct in this game??? Why does it feel so boring and blah when I’m about to knock out my opponent? Where’s the engagement, the emotion?? This game was made by people that do not watch UFC I’ll bet my balls on that.

    Why is Chuck Liddell’s ground and sub rating better than his striking? Noticed that the other day.. Smh

    Why does the ref stand me up when I’m pounding on someone’s face in full mount? Why does my opponent suddenly come back to life the exact moment I go to jump in for the kill when he’s on his back and dazed. Every. Single. Time.

    Where’s the take downs against the fence, EA?

    There’s much more but that’s all that comes to mind right now.

    There is also a lot of positive with this game, however. I hope to god EA can get a good fuckin team (hire me? Seriously. I will make sure you don’t release another garbage game, I’ll do the final review part) and make a great sequel to this game.

    1. Plz somebody hire him

      Ea released an update, fixed takedowns a little bit, fixed holding R button not draining stamina online ,and released tyyron woodley and tj dillashaw and some asian migorinaki nobody knows who he is or wants to play as him.
      Why have tyron woodley and not another fighter that is actually relevant? Woodleys career is likely over.

      Ea sports sucks

  23. after 10 spin-kicks to the fucking head, I get punched in the gut and face ONCE EACH and I’m fucking KO. FUCK THIS FUCKING UNREALISTIC BULLSHIT.

  24. Why wouldn’t it suck? …is the question. UFC is the most disrespectful pile of garbage ever introduced to the sports world. It is a cheap shot to martial arts in general. It’s just two guys pounding the piss out of each other in a cage. Then, when one of them wins, they go around banging their chest, jumping up against the cage, and waving their arms around in the air like they’re superheroes or something. Anyone who likes the UFC has an inferiority / superiority complex, and likely uses it to pad this problem. No wonder the video game sucks. If the UFC ceased to exist tomorrow, they would be doing the world a huge favour.

  25. ALL EA games are Garbage…. Fight Nights, Maddens, the Sims, Sim City, Battlefield. Everything E.A. Touches they break it. Damn Even bejeweled used to be cool until … Oh wait E.A got a hold of it. And All you fan boys of E.A need keep bending over. You like them poking you. If you ask them real hard they might even lube you up…

    I played this game even the sound sucks. But they got realistic movies!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Give me a JAP RPG at least I know the games play better than these garbage games EA puts out. Yah so like Needle Banger said F..K E.A end of story. Wish it was the end of their damn business.

    1. They attempted to fix the game again, by changimg the takedowns all over again, and fixing major flaws like not.being.able.to get off ground in round 1. Took the second update to get it close to acceptable.

      Alsso added a few fighters that r trash ratings and.not fun to play

  27. Seriously, the submission system SUCKS. It makes the UFC3 system look good(but in reality it sucks too).
    EA MMA has the best submission system hands down, especially the grappling system. EA MMA makes you feel like you are actually in the game and makes you feel the struggle.
    Where in the hell did the EA MMA developers go?

  29. Thanks. I just threw my controller so hard that the R1 and L1 buttons popped out. Training I can do all the moves, but come fighting, can’t initiate submission for shit and a lot of my shots just miss without the opponent blocking wheras his identical shots (e.g. uppercut) land without problem. Fck this game.

  32. What the fuck is wrong with everyone this game my not be a fucking master piece but it is nearly better than undisputed 2010 (my favorite) the only problem seems to be the career which is downgraded but still not bad by my standards and for that one guy who said about the not being able to hit the guy it’s called reach don’t blame the game for what you don’t understand when it’s shoved right in front of your face.

      1. Bro. I just picked this game up 3 days ago to play my buddy. And I cannot tell you how happy I am to read every thing I just shouted at my t.v. here. I thought I was crazy until I found this post. I would return this garbage but I only paid 20 bucks for it. But damn I miss those 20 bucks. . . . . . . .

      2. Majority of this planet is made up of sheep people (I like the call them sheeple) so that to me explains the mass confusion with the game play mechanics.. All the shit you morons are whining about can easily be countered.. You really have to pay attention to detail with this game and know wtf your looking for. If you guys spent half the time in challenge mode rather then ranting on this site…..

  35. Ufc 2015 blows dogs for quarters man. The sub system does need work. But I like brawling in the game getting fast knockbouts. The counter/slip/party system is shit. Yes it lags yes my punches miss or glitch even when offline. But the worst is just the game plain n simple its just the overall pile of shit that it is. I go for quick knock outs now when I punch you in the head good combos get you in the flashing red twice and then the (CPU on pro) counters one move that was a blurry parry on my screen of arms flappin. He gets one half ass parry I’m dazed two more punches I’m out. But noooo I get him dazed twice. His damage I con is as red as it gets I land a sweet 5 shit combo with a cage jump superman punch to the face it I must have been 1mm to close cuz he blocked it I aged to 100 years old and he destroys my face. Makes sense. I can’t even go on it does feel robotic you miss a punch get one blocked its like OK back up get stamina OK to two more punches oh shit stamina! I play online and no one throws punches just stand there waiting to parry like a bitch I want a quick match a good match not with some fag kicking me in the lower legs or doing the same clinch kicks to the face trapping me to where there is no move you can do to get out. That’s the worst you get kicked in the legs your guy goes alll oooh nooo my legs puts his guard down allowing you apponentvto destroy your face. So online I get kicked can’t move punched in the face back up and block but then kicked again op can’t block game is shit i m done with it ima go smoke some shit to stop giving a FYCK

  38. Spot on…. I thought I was the only one who thought the EA version of UFC Was horrible. I thought undisputed 3 was so far better it wasn’t even worth comparing the 2.

    EA ruin so many games…

  39. no offense but Undisputed 3 sucks just as much. it’s incredibly robotic and ugly. at least in ea ufc i feel like i’m actually in an mma fight, rather than undisputed 3 where it felt like both people were just taking turns hitting each other.
