    Pettis looks like Sloth.

    I still hate how they can't get striking right. It looks fun, sure.. But the headkicks, and spinning shots that land flush not getting any reaction from the opponent. There were 30 fight ending shots landed cleanly in that vid that were extremely stiff.

    I'm still buying this game day one, but that's the first real look I got at gameplay, and I'm not super impressed.

    I think it looks dope. I like the idea of throwing some fictional characters in there like Sub Zero etc - that would be fun as hell. Obviously Mortal Combat has rights issues but you know what I mean. As for gameplay I actually enjoyed the fight to watch as a spectator. I am sure the ground game is an improvement on before - if anything making more creative submissions and stand up would benefit the game - the moves were too standard in the last few releases - I mean seriously not all fighters are limited to key locks triangles and armbars etc - how about rolling knee bars? I know many of you might say you like it kept real - but thats my preference - a little more opportunity to be creative

    It doesn't help that the two guys controlling Aldo and Pettis just keep spamming single shots and not throwing combinations. When someone who actually know what they're doing plays i'm sure the striking will look a lot better.

    I always play on simulation so the spamming part doesn't bother me at all.

    bullshit. At the 5:03 mark Aldo throws a flying knee and it doesn't land because... why the fuck not? Pettis is right in front, doesn't defend and doesn't sidestep (like he does with the next one that misses), literally a foot in front of him and the knee fails to land.

    They have some issues with the striking for sure.


    And Jones has a 97 out of 100 overall rating. holy shit. he's a fucking superhero. plus this game has a 'power' stat, so you can expect him to be a fucking KO artist too with that rating. And making a career fighter as or almost as good? You can probably forget about that right now.

    Basically everyone is going to pick Jones with his 97 rating. Its sad that they didn't learn from the Fedor situation in the first game.

    These games always fail to impress me. I am not even sure they could ever get it right, given any reasonable amount of time, and resources. It just has too many variables that all need to work together, flawlessly, in order to have that dynamic feel of a true MMA fight.

    That being said, it could still be a fun game, just not what I would consider "true" to the sport.
