Summary

Let’s get it on, are you ready for the Ultimate Fighting Championship on the Sega Dreamcast? As you can probably work out from the title, this is a game based on the real life no holds barred tournament. Forget what you already know about beat-em-ups, this is something completely different. Every year a competition is held to determine who is the hardest person in the world. Every fighting discipline is represented and the action is brutal. Are you up to the challenge?

Your aim in Ultimate Fighting Championship is to become the winner of one of the most deadly competitions around. Each fighter has a completely different style of fighting, ranging from kickboxing to grappling and even sumo. It is essential that you learn all of your fighters moves and when you can execute them. This is the most realistic fighting game ever and those punches look like they really hurt.

There are many different ways to approach this game. You can either try to knock your opponent out or you can try pinning them into submission. You actually lose some energy by attacking all the time, so it is a tactical to try and defend occasionally to regain some vital energy. Different holds and positions alter the amount of damage that you give and take so learn to identify the best position to put yourself in.

Graphically speaking, Ultimate Fighting Championship looks the part. It is detailed and smooth and the atmosphere it manages to create is unbelievable. Get a few friends round and you won’t be putting this game down. Ultimate Fighting Championship is an original, realistic fighting game that plays and looks well.
