Featuring the world's top Mixed Martial Arts athletes, the Ultimate Fighting Championship advanced from a single pay-per-view episode in 1993 to an annual event with multiple competitions. Xbox owners can experience this distinctive sport in UFC: Tapout, which embraces such diverse fighting styles as boxing, wrestling, kickboxing, karate, and more as athletes compete within an eight-sided arena appropriately entitled "The Octagon." Twenty-seven authentic UFC fighters are represented in two divisions: Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight.
Success involves implementing a variety of realistic fighting positions, each with its own advantages and disadvantages, to gain control over the opponent. Each fighter begins in a standing position, but as the match progresses, a number of different submissions can be attempted, such as upper and lower guards, lower and upper full mounts, and lower and upper back mounts. Standard attacks include left and right punches, left and right kicks, and an assortment of counter attacks to avoid a takedown.
Arcade mode involves choosing a fighter and then challenging the remaining athletes in the same weight class, one after another, until the player is crowned champion. Exhibition is a single match between two fighters from any weight class, while Tournament supports up to eight players in a single-elimination format spanning three fights. The UFC Mode follows the same format as Tournament but is only open to single players. The final mode, Create Fighter, lets players choose from 120 different faces, 50 different clothing styles, 8 voices, and one of 11 fighting disciplines. Up to 480 points can be assigned to four areas: life, stamina, punch skill, and kick skill. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
