Ever wonder how a 1990's Dan "The Beast" Severn would do in a slugfest against Junior dos Santos? Could a prime Royce Gracie submit Anderson Silva? How would today's up-and-coming lightweights do against a young Jens Pulver?
Well, now you can find out with UFC Undisputed 2010, which offers all three mixed martial arts legends as playable characters in the upcoming video game from THQ. Sorry to all the Microsoft sympathizers, but this one is for Playstation 3 only.
On the heels of their wildly successful entry in the the mixed martial arts and video game community with UFC Undisputed 2009, THQ went back into the lab to tinker around with some of the mechanics that caused a portion of gamers to say "If only I could..." when talking about a sequel.
In fact, after selling 3.5 million copies of Undisputed since it's release in 2009, THQ has been hard at work to reward gamers with an ever more realistic and fluid experience for their 2010 entry, set to hit retail shelves on May 25.
Bigger, better, badder -- which could explain the inclusion of UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar on this year's cover. But they didn't just stop at the addition of UFC legends.
Five additional exclusive events for the PS3 after the jump:
Ultimate 2009 Category
UFN 18 - Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann
Ultimate Knockouts Category
UFC 102 - Nate Marquardt vs. Demian Maia
Ultimate Classics Category
UFC 60 - Matt Hughes vs. Royce Gracie
UFC 66 - Keith Jardine vs. Forrest Griffin
Ultimate Submissions Category
UFC 68 - Martin Kampmann vs. Drew McFredries
THQ has apparently upped the ante in this new version in response to the pending debut of Electronic Arts "EA Sports MMA" featuring a roster of mostly Strikeforce fighters (with a few exceptions).
Competition breeds excellence and with two major publishers vying for a very specific market, the fans choice for their digitized butt-kicking could depend on just the slightest of variables.
Let's hear it Maniacs, do these improvements satisfy your gripes with the 2009 version? And will you be motivated to buy UFC Undisputed 2010?
