Simple enough to pick up, but tricky to really master, UFC2 has a lot going for it and if you are a fan of the sport it’s certainly worth the purchase. The roster is right up to date and if you feel a bit quirky (and don’t mind a bit of DLC) you can add Mike Tyson and Bruce Lee to your roster.
If you want a fun party game this is a great choice… you have the "brand" of the Olympics plus the characters you know (and at least some you probably love). The controls aren't overly taxing which can be a negative if you like a challenge… but are great for when you just want to enjoy the game, especially with friends.
It's not hard to see why this won a number of BAFTA awards… it is one of those examples that comes about from time to time of gaming being art. A true visual novel that draws you in and leaves you wanting more. Fantastic voice acting and musical score really just provide icing on the cake here. Very worthwhile!
Damn you Telltale games... now I have to wait for episode 2 before I can don the cape and cowl again...
