Eleven must-know things about UFC Undisputed 2010

1. How it plays

The first thing you'll notice is that thespeed of the action has been taken up a notch. Punches and kicks are lightning fast from the lightweights and takedowns can happen in the blink of an eye.

There's also a sway system added to your defensive arsenal now. You can use this to bob and weave away from incoming strikes, but you can also combine it with a punch or kick andincrease your chances of knocking someone out.

You can now use the cage to tie people up against. It's a struggle at first to work out how to take advantage of this position but we find that softening up your opponent with knees makes for an easier shot chance later.

Unfortunately there's still a steep learning curve in place for novices, especially when it comes to grappling. Our first few fights saw us exchanging grapple positions with another human and then stumbling into something special. But as we played more and more we made Georges Saint Pierre the takedown machine he is and Dan Hardy simply couldn't handle him. Like in real life.

This is another facet to Undisputed 2010 in that all the fighters are mimicked brilliantly, meaning they have all the strengths and weaknesses of their real-life counterparts.
