For MMA fans, UFC Undisputed 2010 features the best of mixed martial arts with more than a hundred fighters clashing in the octagon. The fighters included come from all sorts of fighting disciplines, including Wrestling, Boxing, Jujutsu and Kickboxing. Now, the sport is transformed into a video game to allow UFC fans to take the parts of their sporting heroes.

UFC or Ultimate Fighting Championship is one of the most popular mixed martial arts organizations in the world hosting the most electrifying fights and larger than life characters. To give you an overview of the UFC, the competitors battle it out in the Octagon, an eight-sided mat surrounded by chain-link walls. Fighters can win by a knockout, submission, or the judge's decision.

To get into the game, let's discuss the controls first. The controls are quite simple, but the part where it where you are required to go through the game's long tutorial before jumping into the game is somewhat irksome. Almost every move that the fighters make, including grapples, transitions, takedowns and submissions, requires a Right analog stick movement. Strikes such as punches and kicks can be performed through the controller's face buttons.

Unfortunately, one of the game's weakest points is the lack of direction for the player. It never shows how to use ground positions or how to cleverly get out of them.

A new "sway" system reveals the striking game, which allows fighters to move in and out and counter in a much more believable manner than before. The game's ground matches the game. It depicts the fighter's jock position, which is common in real UFC fights. However, even with this improved realism, there's still a concern with finishing fights, as it is especially difficult to win by knocking your opponent out. You usually win the fight by submission which often happen quite early in a match, sometimes as early as a few seconds after the initial move.

UFC Undisputed 2010 still has the usual Exhibition and Tournament modes. There is also an update, the Ultimate Fights Mode, which enables you to re-enact classic UFC fights. One of the upgrade includes pre-match interviews and commentary. However, the fighters in these interviews tend to say the same things and just as bad is the fact that Joe Rogan repeats his commentary again and again.

Completing matches under more difficult modes allow you to unlock rewards. Also, there's no simple retry option. You have to go back to the menu if you want to start the challenge again.

Career mode is a great feature of this game. You can create your own fighter and have a 12-year career filled with sponsors and championships. You can go to fight camps and training all of which adds up to your stats. The fight camps and training allow your fighter to improve on his strength, stamina, speed and other fighting skills. You also have your own coach. You can go to weigh-ins and this is where the rivalries with other fighters can begin. Career mode is really entertaining, but you still have to sort out every detail in the menu to enjoy it.

The online mode allows gamers to go fight for a remarkable leader board spot and earn awards. It also includes Online Fight Camps. This allows you to train and team up with other fighters under a combined camp online. You can make your own name for your club and even choose a logo. However, the game is mostly the same as last year, the biggest change is that of the online mode where you now need to have a code to use in order to unlock the online features. You need to purchase the game to play online and access the features.

UFC Undisputed 2010 is an easy game but it has a deep fighting engine with an amusing career mode and online features. UFC Undisputed 2010 is still a great game and it would be wonderful for MMA fans to really get into the hype of this video game.
