Fighting games in PlayStation (PS) is something that PS fans have grown accustomed to especially in the vibrating feature when punches are landed upon you. UFC Undisputed is a game franchise that has refined the art of fighting since the development of the series by Yuke’s. UFC Undisputed is a series that has brought understanding to the sport as well as the appreciation for mixed martial art professionally. Otherwise, after mastering the moves in gameplay, the game offers an array of entertainment and relief, especially when played in multiplayer mode.
The UFC Undisputed franchise immerses players to the professional side of the sport. The series has done a great job in representing the sport as the amount of depth and detail, seasoned licensed fighters, coupled with a presentation that offers realism, seeks to liven the octagon-shaped Pay Per View event from the comfort of your location.
Although the franchise is most sought after in terms of the game, a major complain for UFC Undisputed 3 predecessors is their high learning curve and daunting control schemes. Simply put, playing the game as a newcomer would require that you spend a lot of time learning the moves or guessing plays before soliciting full entertainment and satisfaction from the game. The multiple modes and two-player capability give you a wide array of options before getting bored with the game.
Engaging with the Fun Side of UFC Undisputed 3
Booting UFC Undisputed 3will reveal something different from its preceding versions. The player is prompted to choose between amateur and pro. The option addresses the uninviting complexity problem that preceding versions were acclaimed to. Playing the game for the first time under amateur mode would prompt instructions on control combinations to press to throw down a move. The feature helps the player learn and play at the same time rather than go into practice mode.
Listening to the cheers and commentary, especially during the introduction of a player, emulsifies your external environment to sink into the virtual world. It takes you to the ring and readies you to the eruptions of fun emotions the game was designed to radiate. Once you have mastered your moves, the daunting task is to win your opponent by showcasing who has the best move combinations. You would spend hours on the game especially after you get to understand it.
New Features to the Game
The thing about game series is that newer versions are always better than the previous ones. UFC Undisputed 3 is better than its predecessors but on a higher degree because this time the developing team took time to listen to UFC Undisputed enthusiasts. They created what every player had envisioned. Apart from the amateur and pro options, the introduction of the Pride FC mode is a record of history. The league is something that was scraped off from the real sport but you get to play it in the Undisputed series.
The graphics are rendered realistically from the real licensed player and bruises are evident from the kicks and punches you get to throw.
The pros and cons are as follows:
- Easier to understand and play
- Realistic graphics and moves
- Better controls response
- More playing options and leagues to choose from
- Takes too much of your time virtually sometimes leading you to forget the real world.
