IGN also has a written review up. They weren’t quite as forgiving as GamePro.com or Gametrailers.com, but I did find myself agreeing with a lot of what they said (even though I do think the game is pretty kick ass).
UFC 2009 Undisputed has its fair share of issues for an up-start franchise, but that doesn’t mean that UFC fans and non-fans alike won’t have fun with the game once they get the complexities figured out. The career mode is fun and well-designed, the combat is cool and visually engaging, and the classic fights mode is sure to please UFC aficionados. If THQ can fix the blemishes and speed things up quite a bit so the physicality and true athleticism of the sport can shine through, we could have a serious contender on our hands.
I’d like to spend a little more time with the game before laying out my impressions, but that doesn’t mean you can’t. Let us know what you think below.
Update: Gamespot.com has their review up.
