New screenshots, can be found here.

UFC Undisputed 2010 First Look @ IGN

Quote:
"Moments ago, the company ran UFC Undisputed 2010 through its first public match Mike Swick versus Paulo Thiago and although the gameplay demo was extremely short, THQ promised and showcased some really good stuff. For starters and piggybacking off of my complaint, the static animations of 2009 are gone. When your fighters are in the prone position or mid-hold, they're not just sitting there -- they're living and breathing. You'll see your arm struggle against a hold as you try and break it, there are transitions between takedowns, and thank the Lord there are cage moves. This year, if you're good enough, you're going to be able to slam coverboy Brock Lesnar up against the chain link and wail on his ribcage.

You can switch to the southpaw stance if you click in on the right joystick, the fight animations have been quadrupled, the clinch has been reanimated, the number of front submissions have been doubled, there's a new targeting system, and there are individual submissions like B.J. Penn's arm trap. Not enough octagon goodness? THQ has added karate, Greco-Roman wrestling, and Sambo fighting styles while doing away with archetypes for fighters created fighters will now use individual movesets."

Quote:
"The gameplay demo featured fighters Mike Swick and Paulo Thiago and covered a lot of ground specifically designed to show off a bunch of the game's new features, including fighting against the cage, a revamped submission system, and a tweaked control scheme. In terms of the cage, the main point discussed revolved around how the cage will affect striking power. In the demo, Thiago was shoved against the cage by Swick and tried some leg kicks while pinned against the cage; the angle of his body against the cage, however, didn't allow him to get full extension and, as a result, his kicks were much weaker than normal. On the other hand, using the additional leverage available to him, Swick was able to land much harder punches on Thiago. You'll also be able to do takedowns off the cage--during the demo, Dravinski performed a single-leg takedown on Thiago, ending up on the ground on top of Thiago in half guard."

Things that stuck out to me.

-Wow 100 plus fighters all photo realistic. No more ugly versions of Kampmann and other midlevel fighters. New res added

-Swaying and weaving has been added.

-The Buffer 180 is in the game!

-- While THQ wasn't talking career mode tonight, one detail caught my eye as it flashed by on the main menu screen as a hint of what to expect from career mode. It seems that disrespecting a fighter before a fight "will gain you more popularity and will also negatively affect relationships". Just what this means and how this will work in the game is unclear but, from the sounds of things, it seems that career mode will be significantly more robust than in 2009.
This game sounds awesome.

This game sounds really promising. Adding karate, greco-roman wrestling, and sambo will be cool as well. Cant wait.

I'm so excited that they're basically making the styles just wording so now you'll be able to have a guy throwing heavy hooks that can throw high kicks as well. No more generic kickboxer guys who all fight like Chuck Liddell.

This will definitely be a day 1 purchase for me. I really hope that they implement some sort of manual replay system. I would love to be able to watch relay's, take snap shot's and download them like we can in other sports games.
 
# 7 jb12780 @ 02/06/10 06:23 PM
And with the new styles you can tailor your guy to your liking. (ie if you wanna have a guy who is sick in the clinch you can pick muai thai and greco-roman.)

Tournament Mode is real nice. I will spend a lot of time with that.

I really, really hope the AI is 100x better, though - because I want a challenge in single player. That's where I do most of my gaming, but I had to look online for a challenge.

edit: oh, and Thiago Silva looks bad *** in that shot.
Agreed. If the AI is improved and Career Mode is more fleshed out, I will be very happy.

Greco Roman is all upper body (see Randy Couture or Dan Henderson). Olympic style (or freestyle wrestling), you can use the legs.

what do you mean by 'use legs' though...do you mean grab the opponents legs? Or do you mean using 'hooks'.

And where would randy and dan compete coming up? Like if HS and Uni is all olympic style...how did these guys develop greco skills and compete?
 
# 13 MizzouBravesFan @ 02/07/10 10:45 AM
I'm hoping in Career Mode they'll give us the option of moving weight classes without starting a new career...that would be sweet.
Love what I'm hearing so far though.

In Greco you cannot use your legs to get a takedown. Its all upper body.

My assumption is Randy and Dan wrestled freestyle in HS and then branched out to Greco later. Dan and Randy did wrestle for the US in the Olympics for the Greco team.

Here is some info on Greco Roman. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greco-Roman_wrestling

I really want that too. Because say if your a LW and you fight your way up the ranks and get beat by B.J. two times then, fight him again and he wins for a third straight time. I would like the option to move up to WW and start making your way through those ranks rather than to keep fighting the same guys over and over again.

They should implement cutting weight somehow. That would be cool
