It takes a bit of getting use to but once you get it down it's pretty solid, biggest thing is try to play against the computer on the hardest level. If you can hang on that you can kick the shit out of pretty much any human opponent in online matches.

I'm up to 17-0.

It's not bad, if someone quits or connection messes up it just throws the match out so no losses or anything like that.

The key is to master the ability to take guys down and get submissions locked in. Most people just try to strike and get knockouts, if you master submission you can kick their asses, that's how I do it.

Nice! I'm lovin this game. :) Gotta work on my ground game though.

Yeah, I just played a few times.

I won easily on the second level and then got my ass owned owned on advanced. Had problems both times I got taken to the ground.

What is the best strategy to get out of full mount from bottom position?

I was just trying to spin the shit out of the right analog stick but that wasn't getting me anywhere. Then they would start in on the serious ground and pound and all I could do was put my hands up. Eventually they got through that and knocked my ass out.

I guess I should go through the tutorial instead of just jumping in lol

It's hella fun though. I can see the ground game is key.

Haven't jumped into the online yet, but I have put some extensive time into the career mode.

It's really fun and paced very well, but the big problem is that once you win the belt, you end up fighting the same 3 or 4 fighters each time out, and their skills don't seem to advance. Maybe that isn't the case once you bump it up to Advanced or Expert difficulty. Regardless, they would've been better suited to follow Fight Night's ability to change your created fighter's weight class.

What's the control scheme like? Is it like the old THQ wrestling games....or more along the lines of Fight Night with the analog sticks?

damnit, I would totally go buy this game right now. I'm still thinking about it, but that online quit thing is kind of a deal breaker. I prefer to play against other people, but if they can just quit to avoid a loss that's a big turn off.

Mecca
05-20-2009, 04:59 PM
It depends, I've seen someone quit and get a loss and someone quit and not get one, I think it only throws it out if you lose connection or something like that.

The four face buttons correspond with your four limbs, the left trigger/L2 modifies the height of your attacks, and the left bumper/L1 essentially does a power move based on your fighters striking style.

When it goes to the ground, Street Fighter style inputs on the right stick are used for transitions between guards, and clicking the left stick starts submissions.

I really enjoy the game just because of the depth of the movesets. You can end a fight in any number of ways.

If it was always easy to take a guy to the mat in MMA, BJJ guys would win every fight.

Okay lets not get into a p!ssing match.

It's hard to compare these fighting games. While they share the name as for what type of game, that's about it.

Some are fantasy based and this one is trying to follow a more realistic approach.

In my mind it's like trying to compare Madden to NFL Blitz in that they're both football games... Just too different.

I don't have it yet so I can't speak to or wouldn't even try to say if it's the best fighting game ever.... I just want it to easily be the best UFC game ever. ;)

I agree with you in spirit, though, that wrestling and MMA games shouldn't be compared with what we traditionally understand as fighting games, either 2D or 3D.

It's honestly like saying "Call of Duty 4 is one of the best games ever" - which has been said around here, IIRC.

I'm glad that gaming has extended past the niche markets, but it's seriously devalued the entire industry.

Some people just never understand the depth behind the fighting games you speak of, they never progress beyond button mashing and somewhat familiar button mashing. I think the strategies and skill sets involved are just so different you can't even compare the two. Mastering combinations vs well timed single button shots is the difference. Both can be very fun, though, depending on what you like.

Oh, and I've played all kinds of games and I do think that COD4 (MP) is some of the best gaming I have ever experienced.

Oh, Jesus H. Fuck. I'm not claiming to be the expert, but as a lifelong gamer (and someone with gaming experience far beyond your very mainstream experience, judging by your posts) who has played a dickton of fighting games over the years, I think that I can offer up a fairly educated take.

I listed four titles that are commonly bandied about as "best ever" in the genre. Would there be Street Fighter titles in the mix as far as a top 10 list? Absolutely. Street Fighter Alpha 3 is utterly superb, and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike is both really, really good and really, really underrated. Super Street Fighter II would probably fall just shy of making the top 10.

As for Mortal Kombat (that's "Kombat," with a K), not many fighting game aficionados would consider any title in the franchise to be top 10 material. Which doesn't mean that there aren't really fun games in the franchise.

Dunno if this is really a trick or not but IMO in CAF Judo is an absolute must...it's lethal. You got throws from the clinch, sweeps, can get off your back, etc...it's a very versatile and useful discipline.

I'm loving the game so far, very well done for a first outing. The gameplay is awesome and I love how it's varied, I've seen fights go about every way so far. I also love the differences in fighters...Machida is a bitch to fight, he fights in the game exactly like he does in real life.

It's utterly stupid, just because you and your pals, or perhaps the gaming mags or whoever the f*ck it is that claims to be an authority (besides your good self, I mean) on these entirely subjective matters think that game x or y is "better" than game a or b doesn't make it that way for everyone.

Your personal top 3 sucks and you're a fucking douche.

ANYWAY...question about career, since i started one tonight and am currently 6 fights in. Wondering about those who deeper into it, do fighters retire? Are ages even in the game? It's not a HUGE deal to me, but it would be cool if that happened. I mean, I'd rather not have guys like Liddell hang aroud forever.

Wrong, and ok-if-you-say-so.

BTW -- I finally played this game. Its really fun. Yuke's did a bang-up job building this thing from the ground up. THQ has got a good franchise on its hands.

Does anyone else get the sense that submissions are a whole lot better against human opponents than they are against A.I.?

From what I understand, fighters don't age at all. Which stinks, but next year's game is when I look for the career mode to really be beefed up.

AH that kinda sucks, but I sort of expected it. There's a lot they can do with it, but it's good enough for a "first" effort. I want entrances next year too.

Yea the subs are hard to land on the expert level than against a person. The person usually tends to use up more stamina going for the knockout so when you attempt it, your usually successful if there worn out.
Really wear out the body when you fight the comp and get his stamina low, youll submit them everytime.
Although sometimes subs will happen at random times with success, I guess thats to counter those flash kos

In order to make a Fedor, you probably want to start with a Microprocessor.

Which styles did you choose? I'm thinking hes more of a Boxing/Judo, as he doesn't utilize too many kicks and Sambo is closest to Judo.

I have a co-worker who works at Gamestop part-time (once every few months). Decent discount on games and accessories and he can "check out" a game, basically borrowing it from the store - and then sold like new of course afterwards.

But yes, they are generally just lazy or fanboys.

So what's the trick in winning your earlier fights in career mode? I've gone the distance and dominated all rounds, from what I can tell, but still lose the decision. I went with Muay Thai and BJJ. But I'm having a problem with kicks to the damn head knocking my career guy out all the time...it's pissing me off :p

Use R1 to block high and R2 to block low.

I just started my career 4-0 and then I fought a guy who I couldn't take down for the life of me, so I couldn't tire him out and he knocked me out with 9 sec left in the first round. Damnit.

You know when you're building your guy early?

Don't spar, you'll get like 20 points, but you'll still get a high number for strength speed or cardio however you build it. If you wait till you have those full like my guy has 100 strength 77 speed and 74 cardio now when I spar in year 4, I can get 100 points if i spar with full stamina.

If you figure out how to do the ground game you'll be good...learn how to get into the mount. It's also easier if you make your guy a wrestler or a judo guy since you can throw and slam.

Wanderlai is good if your good at the clinch offense...I need a guy who has wrestling as his grapple for the way I play, so Wanderlai i can use Griffin not so much.

Thanks, Mecca that helped. So, it looks like there is a cap on your three stats since once you start to get them up higher doing workouts will usually negatively effect the other two? I'm having trouble against Thiago Silva and Ortiz though since they can take me down pretty much at will and since I haven't sparred a lot my skills are weak to defend against ground and pound.

The easiest way to do it, is to take the one you want at 100 or close to it and just build it every single time till its full yes it will negatively affect the other 2 at first but it will only cost you maybe 10 points. Then when you switch and build those it won't affect that one till it gets high.

I had 100 strength and 1 speed and 1 cardio then I built both of those into the 70s. You probably shouldn't do strength first being in the LHW division.

I wish the grapple block would stop the sub attempts, but sub attempts cant be blocked. Its annoying as hell cause then they just click the left stick and it cancels the attempt.
