EA has released some new screen shots featuring Bobby Lashley and Jeff Monson. The screen’s are fairly impressive but there’s just something off about it visually. I can’t quite describe it but it’s lacking somehow.
“It’s cool that I can play as myself in two different kinds of video games now,” Lashley tells me over the phone as we talk MMA. “I can either wrestle as myself or fight with myself. I just hope that EA Sports rates me like a 95 or a 96 overall. I hate to lose.”
In addition to Lashley being added to the games roster, EA Sports is also announcing deals with a few other Strikeforce fighters to make appearances in game such as, Nick Diaz, Marius Zaromskis, Joe Riggs and Melvin Manhoef.
The roster is definitely impressive but I will have to wait and see how the control set up is going to be, THQ nailed it I feel with a nice control scheme for UFC Undisputed 2009. I think EA will definitely bring something innovative to the controls as they did with the Fight Night titles, so we will be on the look out for updates to this first MMA title from EA sports and give you guys a heads up accordingly.
