There are a lot of good reasons to be excited for EA Sports UFC, and not all of them require you to be a fan of MMA. Remember Fight Night Round 3? That was one of the first legit 'next-gen' looking games for the Xbox 360. That was the game you used to show off your new HDTV/console set-up. I'm hoping EA Sports UFC serves the same purpose.
In terms of characters models and general visuals, the game continues to look great. But we haven't seen enough actual proper gameplay footage up until this point. I think that's a legitimate complaint.
The above trailer seems to be a bit more open in that aspect. You seems to get a far better idea of how the game will actually play from this trailer.
It focuses on the career mode. EA Sports UFC is being created by the team that did the incredible Fight Night Champion and I was sort of 'pie-in-the-sky' hoping the team would create a similar type of single player campaign for that game. That isn't happening. Not this time round at least. But still, this video gives you a good idea of what you can expect from the single player career mode.
The game is set for release in June this year.
