EA Sports MMA News Post

IGN has posted their hands-on impressions of EA Sports MMA.

"Now, on to what makes mixed martial so damn tough to replicate on a gamepad: the ground game and the clinch. EA Sports took nearly the totally opposite approach of THQ when it comes to maneuvering your fighter on the ground and in the clinch. What I mean by that is the transitions are simple. To get in the clinch, tap Y (triangle on PS3). To maneuver and advance your position in the clinch, tap Y again. Depending on your fighter's style, you could see things like Muay Thai clinches while other fighters' most dominant position might just be double underhooks. Regardless, to advance your position in the clinch, just tap Y. If you want to take your opponent down to the ground, whether in the clinch or standing, tap A and your fighter will either shoot or go for a slam. From there, much like in the clinch, to advance your position, simply tap A. This will take you from guard, to half-guard to mount if your opponent isn't successful in blocking your attempt."

Things to note

-You can check kicks and parry punches

-They said submission struggles can last up two minutes

-It seems everybody does not like force of strikes,the reviewer complain about strikes.
