EA Sports UFC 5 is the fifth installment in a series of MMA-focused sports games originating from 2014. It's officially licensed by UFC and was developed by EA Sports.
The gameplay of EA Sports UFC 5 focuses on fights. Though the game is highly arcade, the developers did their best to make the fights look as realistic as possible. To succeed we must learn our opponents' strengths and weaknesses, developing a combat style capable of exploiting both. As befitting a licensed game, it features actual, real-life fighters. Some legendary fighters, like Muhammad Ali, also make an appearance.
The game features a brand new body damage system. Injuries taken by the fighters affect their mobility, defense and stamina. Too much damage may result in a doctor's intervention, who'll decide whether the injured fighter can keep going. Grounded combat was also improved, being smoother and more realistic. Knock-outs are replayed, letting us get a closer look at the effective, impressive finishing moves.
EA Sports UFC 5 supports singleplayer, as well as local and online multiplayer.
EA Sports UFC 5 runs on the Frostbite engine. The character models are full of detail and the animations are very realistic.
