UFC 2009 Undisputed Demo Hitting Xbox Live & PSN On April 23

We mentioned last week that THQ was releasing a UFC 2009 Undisputed demo this week. We lied, it’s not. Instead, it’s coming to XBOX Live and the PS Network next week, on April 23 to be exact. IGN.com has a detailed report of what to expect.

Players can assume the role of either Chuck “Iceman” Liddell or Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, two fighters who will be in the octagon this Saturday. I got the chance to spend some substantial time with the demo over the last few days and if Liddell/Rua plays out anything like a few of my bouts, the world should be in for one heck of a show.

Keep an eye for the demo to drop on April 23 on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

Luckily for those who have yet to get their hands on the deep and slightly inaccessible controls of UFC 2009 Undisputed, THQ has included the full tutorial in the demo. You’ll get an in-depth rundown of how to maneuver on the ground, toss someone while in a clinch and pretty much everything else you’ll need to be successful in the octagon. It’s a good thing too, as UFC 2009 Undisputed is one of those fighting games that emulates the complexity of the sport very well, but that comes at the expense of accessibility.
