EA Sports UFC 4 is the fourth installment in a series of games designed for MMA enthusiasts, and the game's assumptions do not differ significantly from its predecessors. This means that the game is focused on a faithful reproduction of the fights of the players, organized by the American mixed martial arts organization - UFC. This time the developers also tried to lower the entry threshold for new players, while maintaining a satisfying gameplay for the veterans of the cycle. The game is promoted by Israel Adesanya and Jorge Masvidal.

Mechanics

Every element of the gameplay known from the previous parts has been expanded and improved. The Real Player Motion technology, responsible for realistic animations of players, has been introduced to the next elements of the fight: the clinch and overthrow. Thanks to this, the movements of the fighters look even more real and differ from one player to another. In addition, the mechanics of the fight in the collar have been rebuilt. Players now have more control over their players by increasing the number of zones they can attack and in which they must defend themselves. New behaviours include special head movements or a precise system of transition from defence to counter-attack. The range of attacks on the ground floor was also expanded, which is a response of the developers to make this kind of fight a hallmark by some competitors. The gameplay is improved by simpler control, using the buttons on the pad more often than the analogue sticks. It is also important that players behave differently depending on their weight category. We fight in many arenas, differing in appearance and character. Among them we can find the famous UFC Apex hall or urban arenas inspired by American suburbs.

One of the hallmarks of the series is the option to play with the biggest MMA stars. The fourth part is no different: during the game, we can play as Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua or the legend of action cinema, Bruce Lee. As for the players we have created, a lot of new options have been added to personalise their appearance. The tattoo creator has changed and our avatar has been equipped with a mask, a crown or hats.

Game modes

The main mode of EA Sports UFC 4 remains the career mode. In addition to the octagon fights, it also involves taking care of regular training of a player created by us or a selected existing player. In the available exercises, mini-games associated with specific actions have been removed and replaced by sparring, during which we develop our player's skills. In addition, we must take care of our relations with the media and investors, which enables us to win better contracts.

In addition to the career, we have an Quick Fight mode at our disposal. This is online mode, where we fight other players. The pace is faster than in standard fights and the whole is organized as a six round tournament. The rules of duels are constantly changing, which allows to maintain the dynamics of gameplay and ensures a fierce rivalry.

Depending on the mode, we can play the game alone, with friends on a shared screen or through a network with players from all over the world.

Technical aspects

With the development of the game, the graphic design has also been improved. Noticeable changes have been made to the players' models, especially when it comes to textures or details such as sweat on their bodies. The lighting also looks better, and the development of Real Player Motion has made it possible to better reflect the fighting movements.
