Jay’s Review: UFC 4 on XBOX
Generally, I write reviews for new TV shows or movies. Today, it's a little different as we dive into the world of video games.
I love the sport of MMA, and thoroughly enjoy working with AKA when they hold shows in Shreveport-Bossier. I've always been a fan, ever since the golden age of Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell. My love for the sport sky-rocketed a few years ago during Conor McGregor's unprecedented run from living on welfare to becoming the biggest draw in all of s[ports.
During McGregor's run, I began playing the UFC video games. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I'm not huge on video games at home. I tend to play mobile games like PUBG or Call of Duty but rarely do I play games on console at home. In fact, I've only really played three games on XBOX. UFC, Madden, and GTA 5.
Out of those three games, Ufc is without a question the most difficult. The controls and gameplay for Madden is straight-forward, and the same for GTA 5. UFC, however, has always featured an extremely intricate control system where literally every click-of-a-button has to be precise, or it could cost you. Even with the difficulty, I thoroughly enjoy playing these games.
This week, UFC 4 finally arrived and I couldn't wait to dive in. The thing I am most excited about in regards to this new edition is the simplicity in controls. The controls, somehow, still feel the same, but they are presented in a new, easier-to-learn way.
The Career mode is by far the best career mode featured in the UFC series. The online games have been tough, but an absolute blast. It's always fun to see Tyson Fury square off against Conor McGregor in the UFC Octagon.
The bottom line is, UFC 4 is the best game yet for the EA Sports UFC franchise. If you are an MMA fan, you absolutely have to try this game out.
