UFC Best of 2008 

 

Family Friendly Gaming has never been one to shy away from controversy, but we have also never purposely driven towards it. There are many topics, and many franchises we have not sounded off on as of yet. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is one such franchise. Over the past few months I have studied this “sport” that falls under the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) umbrella. Competitors punch, kick, and make others submit. Regular matches are three five minute rounds, and a championship match is five of those five minute rounds. A referee is there to make sure people are not hit in the back of the head, in the groin, etc. Referees also stop the match when one competitor can no longer defend themselves or is tapping out.

UFC Best of 2008 is not for the weak of heart or stomach. The entire action on the 2 Blu-ray discs is violence. The very first match is bloody beyond belief. There are also ring girls in very small bikinis that are seen in between rounds of certain matches. There is also at least one rude sexual image on these discs.

Thankfully a lot of the bad words on these discs are bleeped out. There are some that make it through, or partially through. The color commentators have interesting things to say usually. Like pro wrestling they can go overboard with their discussion of the various competitors. Certain guys really dislike certain other guys and those feuds are explored in some detail. Certain other fighters talk smack, and disrespect their elders.

UFC Best of 2008 contains 193 minutes of violent action. There are a few special features on the second disc. The behind the scenes of the major events in the year of our Lord 2008 is a really neat feature. This is the kind of thing I get into. Once you have seen these matches there will not be an immediate interest in watching them again.

There is an intelligent design to the menu screens in UFC Best of 2008. There are not a lot of them but they all function well. The main focus on these discs is the action. The fans are very bloodthirsty, and want to see someone hit (and a lot). This primal urge is the main appeal to the UFC.

If you let anyone in your family watch UFC Best of 2008, please monitor their behavior afterwards. The less mature the mind, the greater the possibility they will repeat what they see. Violent images can also take years to be purged from any human mind. UFC will continue, and I will continue to monitor it.
