Invisible fighters and referees with broken necks are just some of the problems with EA UFC

Invisible fighters and referees with broken necks are just some of the problems with EA UFC

So what do you guys think about EA Sports UFC? I haven't played it -- not even the demo. In fact I don't even own a nex-gen console. Quite frankly I have far too many games to complete on my Xbox 360, and I just can't let them go to waste. It's the equivalent of starting a book, never finishing it, and putting it on your bookshelf for the rest of your life. Eventually I'll nab one and then abandon my duties at MiddleEasy for weeks on end, but in the meantime I'm required to deliver the dopeness to you rain or shine, or earthquake, or zombie apocalypse.

I have a friend that's been having some pretty unexpectedly frightening problems on EA UFC, and apparently he's not the only one. More than a handful of you seem to be experiencing refs that timeshift in and out of existence only to appear with a broken neck afterward. Not only that, but there's this entire issue of invisible fighters that seems to be bugging people out. My bud actually told me that in this bizarre match he actually won a unanimous decision despite not being able to see his character -- oh and with some morbid ref mocking him from beyond the grave. Have a look.

Peter Venkman being invisible isn't a glitch-- it's an Easter Egg!

i havent seen anything like that.. my biggest issue glitch wise is the skip/stutter that happens every so often. gameplay wise how can you not grab someone when they are postured up in mount..

So bush-league...f ucking bizarre. This is "next-gen?" So glad I haven't purchased yet. Is it weird that I'm already bored of the game despite never having played it? Just the few demo's ive seen...*yawn*. I'm one of the few who usually loves EA sport games and fighting games are my favorite. This though.....this looks god-awful.

It isn't as bad as you think... but it isn't that much better than any other UFC game. It just looks great (when not glitching)

I bought this game because I buy every UFC game and I honestly im trying to like it, but its hard. The refs dont stop a fight, you cant pounce on ur opponent after hes kod u just stand there throwing punches while he lays next to u. Computers straight charge you all stirking is like toe to toe. Idk im trying really hard to like it but its just really meh. The dont even have that good of a roster, just scroll through the LWH division. Where the fuck is everyone?

In the end, you will have way more fun and a much easier/better experience playing UFC undisputed 3 or EA MMA (great fuckin game) then you will with this.

The career mode is way better than any previous mma game I've played, but the game is all striking, as pressing L3 from ANY bottom position stands it up, and the ground transitions and GnP are laughable. Everyone gets the same moves, there's no fighter customization at all, and the character ratings mean nothing(for instance, Joe Lauzon has 100 submission skills. Joe Lauzon is equal to Jacare. Game has potential to improve on but someone over at EA should watch an actual mma fight. capoeira kicks, tornado kicks, spinning back elbows, the single leg takedown that looks more like Lesnar's WWE finisher than something Dan Cormier could realistically hit on Mighty Mouse. Or just a regular mouse. 'As real as it gets." Well, let's hope notThis shit is a cartoon.

Yeah, I don't like how they went "showtime" with it. If you want a couple guys doing some crazy moves that is fine... but to see Lawler doing a kick off the fence is a joke. I hope this is just a jumping off point and they really add some depth. I used game face and created a character. The face looked like me but he is ghost white and the hair looked dumb, yet you can't go in and change that when using game face. I can change the character completely to a black dude, but I can't change his hair style.

Forget Lawler. I made a 265 heavy weight CAF that was doing flying capoeira kicks in training. Apparently he can't pull them off in the real fights though.

Both of these consoles have built in recording so the portrait off-tv cellphone video is especially annoying.

I like the game visually, but the game play and modes in undisputed was a million times better.
I really liked taking an existing fighter and then fighting up through the rankings to get to a championship fight. Wish that mode was still available. After I play through the CAF career mode, my only options are to go through all that bullshit over with a new CAF or have random fights with existing fighters. Which kinda sucks, but I'm giving leeway for that fact that it's the first game on the system and with a new production company.

Being Dana White makes us think that we're all hiding behind masks, or something.
