UFC Undisputed 2010 (also known as UFC Undisputed 2) is a mixed martial arts fighting game featuring Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) properties and fighters developed by Yuke’s and published by THQ in 2010 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and (for the first time) PlayStation Portable. It is the second game to be released under THQ’s 2007 agreement with the UFC and it is a sequel to the successful UFC 2009 Undisputed. Another sequel, UFC Undisputed 3, was released in 2012.
Improved controls, including a redesign of clinch and ground grappling, as well as an improved career mode, starting in the World Fighting Alliance.
Changes to gameplay including usage of cage walls, TKO (cut and injury) finishes, and the introduction of karate, Greco-Roman wrestling, and Judo fighting styles.
Added MMA brands for clothing as well as the introduction of post-fight attire.
New arenas including GM Place, Centre Bell, and The O2.
Each fighter on the Undisputed 2010 roster has skills and attributes that can be only viewed while selecting a fighter in exhibition mode. Some fighters have different moves than others which can be seen by pausing the game and selecting the controls while using a fighter, again there is no other method to view a fighter’s moves. Shaquille O’Neal, as well as the Tapout crew from UFC 2009 Undisputed, is an unlockable fighter.
In career mode, players can create their own fighter and make their way to the top of the UFC. The player starts in amateur fights and heads to the World Fighting Alliance, where after a successful run he is invited to fight in the UFC by Dana White. After victories in the smaller Fight Night shows, the player is given the option to fight in the pay-per-view cards. Consecutive victories lead to a title shot, and after winning the title and defending it for a while the player will be given the option to change divisions and fight for the title in another weight class. After 54 fights the player will retire and become a trainer, and if he had a successful career will be inducted into the UFC Hall-of-Fame.
There are many interactive options during Career Mode. Training for a fight involves a management system where the player picks an exercise where he can play sparring minigames or automatically raise their stats. Along with technique stats are levels of strength, speed, and stamina. Focusing too much on raising stats of a particular area will make the other stats decay, so the player must alternate between activities. After joining the UFC and raising his popularity, the player will receive many optional activities, such as participating in press workouts with Rachelle Leah or photoshoots with Arianny Celeste. The player can attend weigh-ins during title fights and will be interviewed by Joe Rogan after every PPV fight.
