Realism stars in ‘EA Sports UFC’

Everything about “EA Sports UFC” — from the integration of UFC-branded videos to a roster including everyone from Jon “Bones” Jones to Ronda Rousey (pictured) — has been painstakingly shaped into one of the most realistic depictions of the sport to date. The attention to detail makes the experience feel authentic, though not highly approachable. Only those with the determination of an athlete can master UFC’s complex fighting systems and enjoy everything this title has to offer. Each bout plays out like a chess match where combatants feel out their opponents’ strategies and exploit openings. EA’s attention to detail might feel unnatural to fighting fans weaned on titles such as “Street Fighter” and “Smash Bros.,” but the methodical pacing of “EA Sports UFC” will knock out MMA enthusiasts. $60 for PS4, Xbox One; rated Teen
