You nailed my feelings exactly. I especially like the feeling of weight behind the punches and kicks. I took a quick look at the controls and was blown away with how many different things you can do. I'm going to play around with this some more once the kids go to bed. I'll be keeping my eye on the previews and reviews of this one now too.

I've noticed and really like that there are so many ways to connect with a punch or kick.  For example, in one fight against Jake I hit him three times with a left, but only threw two punches.  The first one connected with the fist.  The second one connected with the fist and then again coming back with the elbow.  So the second punch came in on the side of his head and through, then as my fighter was pulling his left hand back again to set he automatically used his elbow to connect with the opposite side of Jake's face on the return.  It was a real "wow" moment.

Jake and I are about even in wins against each other.  One of my favorite fights I beat him in 30 seconds or so with a submission on his shoulder.  It was fantastic.  He usually uses Liddel and I use Rua.

I'd grab this one for sure if there was enough online interest around here.

I started working my way through the tutorial tonight. This game is pretty deep.

I haven't had the benefit of playing a human opponent yet, but I have logged several matches against the cpu.  The level of depth on this game is amazing.  I really like the fact that the game pulls off the feeling of depth without being a button mashing fest, but rather relies on tactical fighting.

My only complaint with the game is the extremely random knockouts that happen when you turn the game up to advanced or higher.  I know that can be the nature of the UFC, but it seems like an extreme case.  It could just be since I typically play with Shogun and Liddell does have some of the heaviest hands in the sport.  I can control the ground game very well, but I seem to have issues actually dealing out much punishment once I get side control or mount.

I concur with the statement about advanced, although I have knocked Liddell down on several occasions with just a couple of punches, well timed and placed.  I've never knocked him out like that, though, and he has me.  It may be a difficulty level issue.  I can say that this doesn't seem to be an issue in human v. human as Jake and I had one punch knockdowns and knockouts on each other, some of the best being high kicks to the head as the opponent was rushing in.

Whats the secret with submissions?  I can only submit people with Shogun when I have a healthy stamina advantage and they either got rocked or gassed themselves from trying to get away from the ground and pound.

I'm not sure.  At first I thought it was a keep turning the stick thing, but now I don't know at all how to finish off the submission.  The only thing I can think of is to perform the controller move over and over until it is done?

I'm officially in chomping at the bit, can't wait for release mode.  I just played my first bout on expert and KO'd Liddell with a knee perfectly placed under the chin in :43 of the first round. 

I can't wait to start Teddy Hammerzeit on his career in the MMA

I tried Liddell on higher difficulty settings and found it much easier to win with him then it was with Rua.  I know my shortcoming with using Rua is I get Chuck taken down or in clinch but I can't do much with it on the mat.  I think my problem is blocking Chucks transitions... I don't know how to do it.  I spend most time on the mat transitioning over and over.  If I knew the timings on when to block tranisitions I think I would do much better.
