UFC Undisputed 3 - Game Review

Rating: 15
Released by THQ Studios
Platform: PS3

Ever fancied taking on the role of one of your favourite fighters and taking them on in a no holds barred smackdown?

Well, then UFC Undisputed 3 is for you. It's the third outing of the Mixed Martial Arts fighting game and is proof that the franchise is on strong a footing as ever before and is as playable as any fighting smackdown should be.

If you're a relative newcomer to these types of games, worry not - UFC Undisputed 3's designers have wisely taken this into consideration and made the game easy to access whether you're a watcher of the sport or not. Smart tutorials take you through how to execute a successful fight and get you ready for an actual bout. Normally with these games, it's about remembering combos and executing them with precision and perfection. UFC Undisputed 3 certainly has that but you don't lose all your time thinking about which buttons to press and in which order to be able to enjoy what's on the screen.

You get to play some of the biggest names in the sport and of all nationalities, giving this plenty of scope for action and interaction as well as the chance to prepare for bouts rather than just diving headlong into them. And you have to be a little patient as there are a fair few cutscenes to get through as well - each bout though is more about the long haul than the immediate smackdown as they rarely end in KO before time.

All in all, UFC Undisputed 3 is a good solid fighter and will reward a lot of long term investment.
