Ultimate Fighting Championship Overview

The Ultimate Fighting Championship tournaments started in the 1990s, giving martial artists of the world a chance to distinguish themselves in a fighting environment with very few rules. Fighters could be matched up against fighters of any style, and the match ended only when one fighter submitted.

The popularity of the sport resulted in the creation of other mixed martial arts tournaments and the evolution and merging of fighting styles for greater effectiveness. Ultimate Fighting Championship is a 3D fighting game that tries to simulate the experience of a real mixed martial arts fight. Players can choose from a selection of established UFC fighters, or create their own fighter through the Career Mode.

While in Career Mode, players start the character creation process by selecting from several style templates, then using points earned through fighting and beating a series of progressively more difficult fighters to buy attribute upgrades in stamina, endurance, punching ability, kicking ability, or to learn certain techniques.

In addition to the Career Mode, the game offers several gameplay modes: a single match exhibition mode, a UFC tournament mode, a champion mode, as well as a training mode. Fighters created through the career mode can also be used in any of these modes.

During a match the fighters can roam freely within the confines of the octagonal fighting area. Like more traditional fighting titles, each fighter has a health bar, but fights can be won through knockouts or by successfully applying standing or ground submission techniques.

Both striking and grappling techniques are allowed in the game, and fights that start off standing can go to the ground when one fighter successfully shoots or tackles. While on the ground, the fighters can be in several postures common to mixed martial arts fights, including the mount, guard, and back mount.

Features
Features 22 real-life UFC fighters including Mickey Burnett, Tito Ortiz, Frank Shamrock, and Chuck Liddell
Six modes of play: UFC, Champion Road, Career, Tournament, Exhibition and Training
Create your own fighter and win the UFC championship in Career Mode

All Vehicle Shooter Games

Vehicle shooters involve both aircraft and motor vehicles (such as cars, tanks or boats) in combat with other vehicles, using an assortment of ranged weapons. There is no racing involved, other than the pursuit of the enemy. Whereas vehicle combat in simulation games aim for a degree of realism, games of this style are typically arcade-like and unrealistic.

Examples:
Twisted Metal
Vigilante 8
BattleTanx
Cel Damage
Interstate ’76
Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012

Metal Gear Solid Review

After a wait long enough to make Nintendo jealous, Konami finally delivers to the gaming world what it has been waiting for. Despite the pressure of having promotional commercials, in-store displays, and enough hype to kill the title, Metal Gear Solid destroys all notions of failure and turns the very foundation of videogaming on its ear.

With a background story rooted in Tom Clancy territory, players assume the role of a former Fox-Hound soldier with a codename of Solid Snake. His mission is to infiltrate the Shadow Moses island off the coast of Alaska and penetrate the military stronghold where a rogue Fox-Hound unit has taken control. You have only 24 hours to disarm the base, which houses numerous nuclear weapons, and escape with your life in tact. If you fail, the terrorist group will launch nuclear weapons on the United States of America. No pressure, right?

Storyline aside, Metal Gear Solid has rock-solid (no pun intended) gameplay. Though the control seems a bit loose at first, by the time you actually reach the air vents leading into the base, you should have the basics down pat. Moving around can be tricky, but if you’re lucky enough to have an analog controller, then you shouldn’t have too much of a problem adjusting. Those with a Dual Shock Analog Controller will experience astounding rumbling effects that further immerse the player into Solid Snake’s surroundings.

While Snake’s movements are fairly adequate, one wonders why he cannot walk or jump. Considering the amount of time that Konami spent developing the game, why omit such basic things? Rarely does a 3D game of this caliber not have the aforementioned aspects. This is nitpicking, however, as Snake can run, crawl, hide, tap on walls, and use a variety of weaponry and items. Having more techniques to play around and master would have been great for the player.

If your main interest of a videogame is its graphics, Metal Gear Solid will not disappoint. Presented in a unique way, it uses the same mind-boggling game engine for its real-time cinemas that creates a seamless transition from a game sequence to a cut-scene. Game director Hideo Kojima has also implemented a blurring effect to give Metal Gear Solid a movie-like feel…and it works. Every cinema looks like a movie sequence because of Kojima’s aspiration to become a film director. Judging from his work with this game, he’d have a brilliant career ahead of him.

Sometimes overlooked, but no less important, is a game’s music and sound. Metal Gear Solid features an incredible soundtrack that perfectly complements the mood of the story. Ambient background music and sound effects play while you sneak around the base. When you’re discovered, the music switches to a heart-pounding upbeat theme. Kojima and company went to great lengths to ensure that each weapon and sound effect was as close to its real life counterpart as possible. The amount of quality that’s been pumped into this title is simply astonishing.

Don’t listen to the hype surrounding this title because it doesn’t do the game justice. Do yourself a favor and purchase Metal Gear Solid at all costs. It is truly a classic gaming experience that no gamer from any background should pass up. Remarkable.

Graphics

Metal Gear Solid’s visuals are simply amazing and the attention to detail is unsurpassed by any PlayStation game (circa 1998). While gamers will be dazzled with special effects, one minor gripe is that the characters do not have facial details resembling sketches rather than real people. This is a very minor gripe, however.

Sound

The soundtrack and effects perfectly complement the overall feel of the game. Footsteps echo in long hallways and each object that Snake can tap has it’s own unique sound just as it would in real life. Simply amazing.

Enjoyment

There’s nothing like hiding from a bunch of different guards as they’re searching you out; Metal Gear Solid delivers gaming performance like no other. From the opening scene to the last, it will draw you in and hold you until the final credits roll.

Replay Value

Though the game doesn’t last a long time (it’s adequate enough), there are plenty of reasons to justify going through it a second time. There are two different endings and a ton of secrets waiting to be found. Konami did a fantastic job of making the game more than a one-timer. There are also a variety of VR Missions that test your overall skill in various areas.

Documentation

The instruction manual is both informative and well written. It explains everything from Alert to Evasion modes and how various items and your Codec work. There are also strategy guides available in addition to plenty of online sites to aid you in your quest.
