I like how the fights look now. In UFC 3 the NPCs would just brawl with hooks or spam with high kicks. It seems there is a little bit more variety here. The ground game is DEFINATLY better. In UFC 3 they would just do sweeps over and over again. This is far more authentic. The only complaint I have is that the animations sometimes appeared to be a little bit choppy.
Unrelated to KVFL: If the online mode is well balanced out and without lags, cheaters or anything like that, this seems like it could be a real fun game.
