||The UFC is on quite a roll these days, riding high on a wave of popularity fueled by its intense pay-per-view events, the terrific reality show 'The Ultimate Fighter', and its current roster of superstars like Georges St. Pierre, Shogun Rua, and Brock Lesnar (we hope to see you back in the Octagon real soon, Brock!). But one of the main cogs in the UFC hype machine lies in its video game spinoff series, Undisputed. The slick interface, brutal knockouts, and technical sophistication found in last year's title helped turn a legion of gamers into fans of mixed-martial arts, but gamers have even more reason to be excited this year as Undisputed 2010 is a vast improvement in pretty much every key area. It's a terrific follow-up to what was an already excellent game, and it should help elevate the stature of the UFC to untold heights...Multiplayer is another important aspect of the game, and while I didn't get a chance to try out the mode -- servers were not available yet -- I have high hopes that Yuke's has addressed the issues which hampered last year's online fights. Quirks like people fighting with created characters with blown up stats and transition block spamming really cut into the joy of taking on human opponents. This year's version adds some new twists to keep the action more interesting, including the ability to recreate actual UFC pay-per-view event cards and a central database to upload stats to. There's no telling how the mode will hold up over the long term until the servers go live but it looks as though Yuke's is at least learning from their past mistakes...And that's what makes Undisputed 2010 such a success: it addresses the problems of the past while making subtle improvements that make the product better. The graphics are crisper, the animations are better, and several new tweaks make the actual fighting more enjoyable. Even the menu system and user interface is cleaner and easier to navigate. This attention to detail makes UFC Undisputed 2010 an intensely satisfying experience, and if THQ can keep up the momentum, the future of MMA games looks bright indeed.
