Started the career and am 5-0 on Advanced so far. I'm fighting in the Middle Weight and just beat Jason MacDonald; my home town boy. Kampman is next for my fights.

I made my character looks as close to me as I could using a mirror to help. Height at 5'9" and though I weigh around 200 lbs I know I could cut to 185.

I'm still learning the controls; much more difficult to play people on line then in the actual career mode. I've played some people I know and I have only won about 1/3 of the fights. Plus there is issues currently online with lag that the developers and/or XBL need to fix and the gamers are letting them know through many web forums.

All and all I'm enjoying this. Sad that Randy Couture is not one of the fighters. Clay Guida is not either because they couldn't do anything for his hair and as he would nut cut it they cut him out of it. Plus they've made all left hand fighters (i.e. Rich Franklin) fight in a traditional right handed stance; don't get that at all. Also what don't get is they have fighters that have been gone from the UFC for a while like Arlovski, Sylvia, Tito, Cro-cop, etc. but they don't have Ken Shamrock plus others.

Having fun though and have played all of the Heavy Weights, most of the Light Weights and most of the Middle Weights; plus a few from the other classes. Career mode taking some getting used to with training, event planning, e-mails, sparring, etc; but over time should get the hang of it as have not done much more then 2-3 hours on it.

Big fun.

Well, I (finally) got my copy today, and its good. Its nowhere near as good as I expected from the demo though.

Gripes:
1. Using 'create a character' is fun, but the programmers definition of a 'very big' tattoo, is way off. Means that I cannot hook my 'mini-me' up with the amount of Ink it would need to be an accurate likeness

2. Career Mode is shaky: load and save and load and save and load and read pointless emails and load and save and fight. Then repeat again and again
It was a terrible mistake not to include training mini-games, and makes your progression very uninvolving.

3. Somewhere between the tutorial and fighting a CPU, the programme seems to decide to ignore all requests for ground game actions. on the demo, I could get the characters to roll, vie for position, and even try submissions. No joy on the finished game so far, though this may be down to my career attributes. We shall see.

I was all set to to give this a 9/10, but with the inertia involved in the career mode, gonna have to drop that to a 7/10.

I agree the career mode sucks, I want to fight not read countless emails.

My biggest problem so far is with the online play. I am tired of beating people only for them to pull the plug on their box and making the match invalid. You would think THQ would have made a patch already. At first I thought it only worked on submissions but it has happened with KO's also.

I don't play online with randoms; only those I have game before with. I have enough people to chose from that I don't have to worry about this.

Been playing 2 player in meatspace, and have to say that this game has now come into its own
Fighting over submissions is hilarious
My career is going better too. My tip, for what its worth, is to work on your sparring more than anything else in training- you get more fights, and the stats you build from the points earned, seem to have more direct influence over your performance that the old strength/speed/cardio.

Yeah, Create a characters are annoying too, I can't do a "quick match" without someone getting a jacked up create a character.

I pretty much agree with all of the issues already mentioned. I still really enjoy the game, though. My biggest problem is I should be 4-0 online, but I think my opponents disconnect before the records update. If anyone wants to fight, I'm on PSN. I'm ok with losing, I just want more people to let the records update!!
