The best way I can describe this game is Fight Night with kicking and submissions. The 360 demo looks phenomenal and plays smoothly. You'll notice that even glancing blows do some damage. Minor points of concern are the seemingly canned knockout animations and the difficulty is really varied. Beginner is too easy and Expert is near unforgiving. These are really really minor points. Fighting is fun, there is great satisfaction to be had as you master the advanced moves, you can create your own fighters and save replays (features not available in the demo). This is a demo worth checking out and a game worth setting aside money for.
