The reviews have started hitting the net and the great news for the UFC, THQ and the gaming fans is that the reviews have impressively averaged a 94% positive ratings reports metacritic.com.
Metacritic.com is a site giving compiled rating averages from the biggest media companies on music, movies, tv, and games. A 94% average is not very usual in gaming. The recent popular Super Street Fight IV release received a 92%, which should help put the rating in perspective. Here is a few of the recent reviews.
And that’s what makes Undisputed 2010 such a success: it addresses the problems of the past while making subtle improvements that make the product better. The graphics are crisper, the animations are better, and several new tweaks make the actual fighting more enjoyable. Even the menu system and user interface is cleaner and easier to navigate.

It’s difficult to describe every single new feature but once you start playing and see all the new positions, mechanics, and modes, you’ll really see how THQ set the bar even higher this year.

EA Sports MMA is going to have a lot to live up to when it launches as UFC Undisputed 2010 raises the bar for virtual Mixed Martial Arts. Is it perfect? No, not at all. But, if you put this side-by-side with its predecessor, the differences are like night and day. You could almost go so far as to say that Undisputed 2009 was the trial run and this is the real game.
