Summary

To say that this entry into the world of mma games is better than previous versions is an understatement. Every aspect of the game has been given the attention it deserves to be top level from fighter animations to gameplay controls, this game oozes perfection down to the finest details. It combines all of the best aspects from mma titles like EA Sports MMA, Supremacy MMA and even UFC 2009 & 2010. THQ has gone back to school when it comes to mma fighting presentation and style and this game proves more than ever why game developers need to stop focusing on putting out a 'yearly' title and start focusing on a creating a fantastic, well designed polished game.

The biggest and most pleasant addition to the franchise is the inclusion of Pride. Players can now choose from UFC or Pride rule sets and can use UFC fighters in Pride and vice-versa. There are 150 fighters to start with by default and more as DLC. Create mode has been streamlined to be easier and quicker so it doesn't take as long to jump into the action. You can also share created fighters over the network allowing you to search for and download other player creations as well as fight cards. There is also the ability to create your own highlight reels using the data from your past 50 rounds of fighting. The game saves your last 50 rounds 'in their entirety'. You still have the ability to create fight cards, compete in tournaments and go through title mode and title defence mode.

Fighters look better and move with more fluidity than in previous UFC titles and can perform more moves than in previous UFC's. The gameplay mechanics have been revamped to include an amateur control scheme making it accessible to newcomers while being advanced enough that even veteran gamers could enjoy them. There is a major difference in this game though when it comes to transitions. In previous games blocking strikes also auto blocked transitions. Now, players have to actively block every transition using a flick of the right stick. Also, now there is a simulation mode which better mimics the real life effects of fighting. Fighters will become fatigued quickly if players do not manage stamina. Button mashing will almost certainly end badly for the player. The simulation mode puts a great deal of emphasis on strategic fighting, making it easy to get knocked out if you aren't careful with blocking, swaying and countering.

Career mode has been overhauled to reflect a more action packed approach. No more stat decay. Plus, you now have the option to boost your stats by completing tasks during matches based on your pre-fight game plan. Pull off the moves and you get to keep a percentage of those boosted stats. Fail to complete the tasks and you lose the stat boost points but keep the Cred and bonus points from the fight itself. Its a good way to implement a strategy and get rewarded for following it. Career mode also has the ability to watch - or simulate - other fights as well, similar to WWE games.

Visually the game looks stunning. Its flawless actually. Collision detection is spot on, graphics and attention to detail is 100%. It would have been nice to have a blood smear effect as with EA MMA but thats just being picky. The blood visuals in UFC 3 are really good, just not perfect. The submission system however, is perfect, fair and incorruptible. Its an on-screen mini-game visual similar to EA MMA's submission graphic with the exception that UFC's submission game relies on quickly overlapping your opponent's strength bar with your own and staying on it while the opponent tries to escape. The game is played by using the right stick to circle the outside perimeter of an Octagon shaped graphic. Your strength bar shortens as you go, reflecting a loss of energy so you have to work efficiently at maintaining the submission. There is a long rectangular shaped meter in the lower center of the graphic with represents who is winning and losing the submission game. The longer you hold the submission the more you fill that meter with your color. Fill the meter completely and you have successfully submitted your opponent.

Online is pretty straight forward! Better connection than previous UFC games from what I am seeing on the forums although I never had any issues with any of the UFC games online mode! As of writing the review, there were some issues with regard to connection loss from players but I am confident that it's a correctable issue.

Do yourself a favor and go out and purchase UFC Undisputed 3. You WILL enjoy this game!

Funeral services will be held for UFC Undisputed, Undisputed 2010 and EA Sports MMA immediately following the celebration of UFC Undisputed 3.
