Brand New UFC 2009 Video Game Trailer

Here are some hands-on impressions from IGN.

In our first look at UFC 2009 Undisputed, we were amazed at how much the game looked and sounded like an actual UFC event. The presentation of the game is downright impressive. Graphics don’t look like their counterparts from UFC television and pay-per-view, they are their counterparts. You hear the swell of a medieval opera when the Tale of the Tape graphic appears, just like you do in UFC. Cameras swoop around the ring and shoot from the same angles. Everyone you’d expect to see at a UFC event is in the game, from the actual UFC ring girls to UFC referees to real cut men and cornermen. Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan break down the action in their inimitable manner.

As for the fighters, well, we saw five, and to say that they looked authentic was an understatement. The crowd of gathered media and UFC officials audibly gasped at the photorealistic representations of B.J. Penn and Anderson Silva, two of the five fighters confirmed to be in the game as part of the 80+ fighter roster. Chuck Liddell was one of the other three, along with the other two fighters used for the demonstration of the game, both of whom were present at the press conference: UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, as well as his challenger for the title on July 5, Forrest Griffin.
