(Review of Dreamcast version)

Crave's Ultimate Fighting Championship debuted with strong word-of-mouth buzz. No doubt, the game is popular because of the intense two-player action.

The game is very accurate to the real-life sport. The referee's tone and word choice is uncanny: "Are you ready," he often croons.

The controls are very simple, but you can learn tons of complex moves for each fighter. However, UFC talents like Hoyce Gracee, Tank Abbot, and Ken Shamrock are not included.

The textures of the existing fighters are well-done, resulting in the best-looking 3-D fighting game yet. Character animation and movement are very smooth and natural.

The only major downside is that matches are extremely short unless skilled players are involved. The game would have benefited from some sort of handicapping system.

Also, training a fighter is a long, arduous process that often involves frustration. Ultimate Fighting Championship is best for hard core fighting fans, but anyone willing to invest the time will enjoy it just as much the purists, especially with a friend.
