Preview: UFC Undisputed 3 turns me into a bro
by Ryan Perez

I'm not an athletic person. To me, exercise if the farthest thing from fun, and exhausting myself half to death is akin to self flagellation. Even the never-changing world of sports is something that I find quite uninteresting. But that doesn't mean I don't respect and admire the effort and hardship required to be great at any physical activity. Unlike the mongoloids who make the vacuous (and overdone) claim that cage fighting is "homoerotic," I commend professionals of the sport for doing something that I have no problem admitting I wouldn't be able to do...ever.

Which is why games like UFC Undisputed 3 are just as meant for people like me as they are for fans of the sport, and for two very important reasons: Gamifying anything makes it easier for dunderheads like me to learn, and I love to pretend like I have the ability to beat the holy sh*t out of almost anyone. I'm a bit of a pansy and don't know a thing about UFC, so games like these are great for people like me.

UFC Undisputed 3 has lots of men hitting each other

The best thing about mixed martial arts is that it brings together several disciplines of fighting to make one brutal sport where fighters have to be well-versed and extensively trained so that they can hold their own in all disciplines. Anything goes. That very openness makes for a fine foundation for a videogame, but translating that wide range of physical freedom to controller input could be difficult. 

THQ nailed it right out of the gate with UFC Undisputed. They've since tuned the control formula over the past titles to a point where players can explore the sport's full range with confidence and still have a pretty good time. Now, with UFC Undisputed 3, they've made control even more accessible with a new entry level control option. But don't write this title off as a dumbed down version of the last one. It's bigger, better and more accessible. Everyone wins. Well…you know what I mean.

It's time! Time for another installment in THQ's mixed martial arts fighting franchise, UFC Undisputed 3.

UFC Undisputed took the gaming world by storm in 2009, but its follow-up UFC Undisputed 2010 didnt quite reach the same sales echelon as its predecessor despite critical acclaim. Maybe it was the fact that the game was touted as more of a refined version of 2009 rather than a full-fledged sequel (that's the reason I skipped out.)

Whatever the case, THQ is throwing in the kitchen sink with this year's update to not only attract a wider range of players but also provide those who did pick up 2010 a reason to travel back down a familiar road.
