Get ready for a brutal fight to the finish

tech reviews Updated: Jun 01, 2009 21:24 IST

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is a brutal sport that’s taking the world by storm. The premise is simple: shove two men in an octagon and watch them go at each other in a number of martial arts styles. The game is highly technical with a steep learning curve. UFC can be broken up into two parts. You have vertical fighting, which is a regular fighting game between two players. You also have the horizontal mechanic that kicks in when you take an opponent down.

The game has quite a few modes. In the career mode, you can create a fighter from scratch and rise to become the best in your category. There’s also a Classics Fights mode that allows you to re-live all major fights in UFC history.
Although the combat system is rock solid, it lacks the visceral feel associated with this sport. UFC 2009 Undisputed is now available for both Xbox360 (Rs 2199) and PS3 (Rs 2499).
