Maybe too many people are tired of getting Shōryūken-spammed

It's a pretty good fight-sim (for lack of a better term). The career/create-a-character mode is rather challenging, but that's mostly because there is no health bar and there can be very little warning as to when you're about to drop like Glass Joe.

Like real MMA. You never know when someone is gonna get owned in an instant. Case in point, Bobby Lashley's last fight, he beat the guy in some absurdly fast amount of time (The dude was an asshole, wore a lucha libre mask to mock Lashley... Lashley refused to touch fists with him, and roflstomped his ass). I don't think anyone thought that fight was gonna be over that quick.

Yeah, if you don't realize MMA matches can end very abruptly, then you may not like this game...

...but if you do like kicking dudes in the head until they bleed, then you might get some enjoyment of it

are you referring to the fact that 95% of users use ken/ryu/sagat/akuma due to how ridiculously easy they are to use and their ultra high priorities?

if so i agree sf4 would be so much better if capcom made those characters actually take more skill to use or better yet get rid of them and force people to use other characters

Totally misread the thread title and was a bit to excited to click.

I can't believe a UFC game is really at the top though.

Shouldn't be so surprised

1) UFC is huge and just getting bigger

2) The game is a fantastic effort to reproduce UFC as a game. It does to UFC what Fight Night is to Boxing or Madden to Football.
