I’m not sure whether it was because of my ADHD or because my wife pointed out that I was playing more Xbox than my 13-year-old son, but playing UFC Undisputed quickly lost its lustre for me.
Besides having to beat 50 opponents before my created player could throw even one head-kick and the fact that you needed to basically program a string of HTML code using your controller to finish an opponent by submission, what put me off the most was the online play.
Before THQ fixed a few of the glaring issues with the game, you couldn’t buy a win against an online opponent. Even if you did manage to find an opponent who wasn’t using a rapid fire controller to methodically outbox your user controlled Anderson Silva using Demian Maia, nine times out of ten they would disconnect the second you beat them to avoid incurring a loss on their record.

It looks like Electronic Arts is looking to change that.Read More ADD COMMENTS (29) DIGG THIS
