With its growing popularity, it is almost no surprise that sports gaming giants Electronic Arts (EA) want a slice of the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) action. It’s been two years in the making but finally this year they’ve released EA Sports MMA into the ring to go toe-to-toe with the superb UFC Undisputed 2010.
Last year, UFC 2009 Undisputed arrived onto consoles and finally gave fans of the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) a worthy videogame. Along the way, it even found itself some new followers. So with one success under its wing it was no surprise that the developers announced a sequel to follow in 2010, with the aim to further improve on the winning formula. But will it fall into the trap of most yearly sports titles and offer little more than a roster update, or will it truly set a benchmark for fighting simulations?
