UFC: Sudden Impact for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
TDK Mediactive signs on with the UFC franchise to offers its fans UFC: Sudden Impact for PS2, the fourth Ultimate Fighting Championship game to be released in two years. Developed by Opus, UFC: Sudden Impact offers faster, more realistic fighting, thanks to a redesigned graphics engine that will also allow new signature moves that reflect each fighter's martial arts specialty. Players can customize their play mode, from a less advanced press-and-play to an in-depth "Create-A-Fighter" story mode. New fighter models have been developed for UFC: Sudden Impact. Over 8,000 polygons per character, complex animations that create more lifelike movements, and real-time damage indicators such as cuts, bruises, and bleeding, all add to the realism of this virtual fighting game. Increasing the game's depth are more than 40 fighters, including the likes of UFC champion Matt Hughes and up-and-comer Robbie Lawler. Aside from the fighters included in the game, players can elect to create their own fighter from the ground up, choosing distinct personality traits and exciting arena entrance animations.
