INTRODUCTION
 

UFC Undisputed 2010 is upon us however, this year it has taken a step down from the heavyweight consoles to the lightweight handhelds as for the first time ever, THQ brings the UFC Undisputed series onto the PSP.

CAMPAIGN 
UFC Undisputed 2010 offers a wide range of game modes for single player use. In fact, it offers six different game modes in total.

 

The first one ‘Exhibition Mode’ is essentially a quick start mode, allowing you to choose any fighter from any division and get right into it.

 

‘Title Mode’ requires you to pick a fighter from any weight division and once chosen you must compete in either 8, 10 or 12 matches before you can challenge for the title of your chosen weight division. If you are successful in your bouts and are crowned champion, you are able to unlock the ‘Title Defence Mode’. This mode of course is when you must defend your title from up and coming challengers.

 

‘Tournament Mode’ pits 4, 8 or 16 UFC fighters from your chosen weight division against each other, in knock out stages to vie for the ultimate prize… which really isn’t anything to be honest.

 

‘Ultimate Fights Mode’ challenges the player to re-enact some of the greatest fights over the past year or so. It’s a nice segment to the game with pre-build up videos from various main events. If you are successful in re-enacting these fights, you are rewarded with a highlight reel clip as to what actually transpired that particular night.

 

‘Career Mode’ allows you to create a custom fighter and compete from scratch. You must attempt to build yourself up in order to become UFC champion of your chosen weight division. It’s a big improvement over last year’s career mode with nice cut scenes with yourself and your coach in the locker room.

 

Now that’s the single player modes explained its time to look at the actual game play.

 

Well to be honest, UFC Undisputed 2010 is not a game that you can just pick up and play straight away. On your first use it asks if you’d like to partake in the tutorial. My advice to you would be yes.

 

The tutorial takes about 10 minutes to complete with various different combinations to master in order to escape from submission and carry out moves. This is essential as the moves are a bit complicated to get to grips with at first.  

 

It’s let down is really a hardware one, The controls are limited to one analogue stick and on the PSP it is quite a small one which makes working out these moves quite difficult.

 

The movement of the fighters can be laboured and at times they put up little in the lines of a defence when you are attacking them meaning the game is severely lacking any sort of real challenge for the expert fighter.

 

Graphically the game is excellent with no let up in frame rate. The fighter’s are nicely re-created to match their real life counterparts. They have picked up on their traits as well. All the menu’s look quite nice, they are all well polished and aren’t too packed with information to overload the small PSP screen which is a huge plus.

 

From an audio point of view it’s rather good. Bare in mind that the speakers on the PSP aren’t the best it still does sound good but there is no commentary whatsoever. That was a bit of a disappointment for me as I rather enjoy the commentary team in UFC games. Bruce Buffer, the octagon announcer is present and still sounding as good as ever which redeems the game somewhat.

If running off the UMD and due to high quality video files loading times are a real killer for this game. The vast majority of your game is spent looking at the loading screens.

CAMPAIGN 

There is a multiplayer option that allows you to play an opponent via wireless broadband giving the game some extra opportunities, however it proved difficult to actually find anyone to play online with.

 

CONCLUSION 

Overall it is a good game there are a lot of game modes for you to test out, but due to its complicated controls and the small PSP controls it’s not the kind of game you will be playing for hours on end. It’s good to pick up and play while stuck on the bus as with most PSP games.  Overall it’s a good solid game and fans that want to keep the fight going on the move will be happy with it. Fans of the console version may struggle to get to grips with the PSP control layout.
