not sure if this is the right place to post this, but has anyone played the demo of UFC 2009 UNDISPUTED yet? I just downloaded the free demo on PS3 this morning and haven't been able to put it down. The graphics are unbelievably realistic and they employ so many fighting techniques from the stand up and ground games, it's really incredible. The demo you can only play Liddell vs Shogun Rua, but you get a good idea of the depth of the game. There will be over 80 fighters in the full version - I'm really impressed and will certainly buy it when it comes out.

Here's a video trailer that gives you an idea of what I'm talking about

I downloaded it yesterday afternoon and played it last night. I went through the tutorial first to understand the moves but there is A LOT and even trying to play the game it was difficult and will certainly take some time getting used to.

I haven't got the hang of it; only played it 3 hours but will certainly be on it again so when the game comes out in May I will be more versed at it. I can't wait to create my own character in my likeness and going through the career and getting to fight all of these people. I looked at the list of fighters a while back and am very excited especially since my home town boy Jason MacDonald is in the game as well. This game is going to ROCK.

My buddy and I got together and went head to head; it was awesome.

I like that each character reacts differently and has different skill sets. That if you are a grappler that your grappling skills are better then a non grappler. That if you are a striker your striking skills are better then a non striker. I like that they took all of this into account when designing this.

My buddy and I stepped away from the striking game and went to grappling only to test things out. Rua having a grappling background was much better on the ground and could easily reverse Chuck. Rua also could perform submissions better and his success rate was much higher. Chuck I would get to stand up much easier; as that is what Chuck does.

There is so much I have to learn because even going through the Tutorial twice, there are things I just cannot retain for memory and then you have to take into account the fighter you select because one fighters controls are not necessarily the same for the other. Just like when my buddy was playing Rua, he could drop to his back from a standing point where as I couldn't with Chuck. I thought it was me so when we switched things up I could drop Rua on demand to the ground whereas my buddy couldn't with Chuck either.

It is a good game and I look forward to trying other fighters to see their differences; strengths and weaknesses. I cannot wait to create my own character with the skills I have. And I look forward to the challenge Cord; you are on.

PLayed the demo with my wife (I was Chuck), totaly neglected to mention there was a tutorial, and sent her in 'blind' (how mean am I? ) all went according to plan, and a couple of big overhand rights later, Rua is on his back. I moved in for a bit of G n P, and before I knew it, was tapping to a kimura!!!
Turns out she had been playing the demo all day and not told me.
I got served. I love that woman

I seriously think that there is scope for a FA.com online community - imagine using the game to settle flame-wars!? Too much fun

I belong to a online gaming community where a bunch of mature gamers get together to get away from all of the idiot people online. Of course mature gamers doesn't mean we don't act like idiots ourselves, but it is most definitely in a better atmosphere than randoms online. Mostly guys but a few girls as well.

We set up days we play certain games and also have challenges set up where prizes can be won. Currently made it to the final table for a UNO tournament. Plus they have a quirky challenge where the winner is sent a green hat that they must use as an avatar; usually done through FPS games. Good bunch of people and why I am into XBox 360 so big. And this game is already on the table and have had challenges sent when it comes out.

In this game however the submissions I find hard; unless your opponent doesn't defend and then it is too late. Or your opponent is very tired. Against the computer I'm finding it difficult to get submissions once I apply them; tapping those buttons like no tomorrow. Will take more practice and finis.

Good on your wife Cord.

well, I'm definitely not a mature gamer, probably fall in the category of random idiot online .

I'm looking for more tips to try and get better at this game. the tutorial is good but have a really hard time trying to work any submissions.

I saw this tip video online that was pretty cool for striking.

I have found that, for submissions ans shoot attempts, it is more effective to rotate the right thumbstick than tap the strike buttons. Shouldnt make a difference, but it seems to.

I will try that Cord. I can get the submission started but then getting the actual submission itself very difficult. Once I can get this down then this game will increase in quality for me; and I'm already loving it.
