Re: What it would take for you to purchase UFC 4

I tried to cancel my pre-order and get a refund but microsoft denied it. And I quote: "Here's what we found looking into your request. We can't provide a refund to this request. Our refund policy does not allow refunds for digital game products that have been played or consumed. Thanks for understanding." Smh, it's a pre-order! Game isn't playable until 8/14...lazy *** customer service people. Now I have to call them and waste my time because someone doesn't know how to do their job...as usual.

Oh well. Sucks for me because I am a student of the sport, a 25+ year fan of the UFC and I love this genre of video game. Day 1 purchase for every game since UD2009 and I played the hell out of the Tapouts/Sudden Impact/Throwdown/Pride FC games and even UFC on dreamcast.

Not this time and I know I'm not alone. Not that it'll matter because for every hardcore fan stepping back and waiting for the bargain bin and patch work, theres 5 casuals who cant wait for some wacky mustaches, cheetah speedos and backyard lion head beefs.

Re: What it would take for you to purchase UFC 4

What would it get me to purchase was the question though...

Needs:
Deeper roster
More CAF slots
Full editing ability of CAFs
Ref interaction/TKO
Clinch: Feels better and worse at the same time. I dig how we engage and disengage but I don't like that we're so limited in our positions. We can't pummel back and forth? C'mon man!!
I don't play online much but I'm 150% behind the people who want CAFs removed from ranked. Have 2 leaderboards: 1 with cafs, 1 without.

Wants:
Universe mode
CAF share


If all these things were in, I wouldn't care if you let people wear flaming skull heads and Hulk Smash gloves DURING a fight (with a toggle to make sure i'm not facing ludicrous cafs if i dont want to online)....but it looks like things that are necessary were barely considered in lieu of some silly un-mma stuff.

Nothing. There is such a disconnect in the actual product with what the game should be. And with this being the 4th iteration is just brutal.

In all seriousness:

-Fighter individuality needs to be better implemented, more signature animations are a must. The lack of varied striking animations is an absolute shame.
-TKOs/Doctor Stoppages(the latter should be exceedingly tough to force, but if someone has a bad enough cut, they should have to defend it, with a warning check giving you ample notice that if you don't, the fight will be stopped if you keep taking shots to the head)
-Clean up the standup controls, no more switch kicks on the wrong button, no more punch inputs for kicks. And at that point, also find a way to keep takedowns distinct from any striking controls.
-More complexity to the clinch, bring back double unders, pummeling, fighting against the cage, the new clinch is a good start, but we need all of MMA to be represented well here. If there's enough concern about Usman style tactics, just make the ref break that stuff up faster.
-Either bump the emotes to appear during Buffer's announcement, or axe them outright from the intro. They're ugly and out of place.
-The instant posture down needs to be adjusted, and where's the elbows and hammerfists?
-Stamina can always be tuned down, going the UD3 route with a set of sliders for arcade or sim for online quick play would be optimal, but I don't expect that to happen.

-Pride Mode and Universe Mode would be an instant purchase, but I know we're not getting those.

All in all, I just want a game that's an outright improvement on UFC3, that honestly attempts to replicate the sport as well as it can while maintaining a playable experience for a wide variety of players. I don't think this would have been too hard to have managed, but the direction of UFC4 just doesn't sit well with me, and I'll sit this one out.

Give me the option to turn off longevity and career mode. You can make the stats decrease after a certain age or something but don't tell me when I should retire. I hate that!

See, these contracts are actually the kind of thing I thought would prevent a universe mode from existing.

But it's in. We really should rebrand it promoter mode.

Nothing. Hope this game flops tremendously and the UFC doesn’t renew the license with EA
