Spike is making a Bellator video game for some reason

Spike appears to be putting the cart before the horse with this news that Bellator will soon have it’s own video game. Considering how hard EA’s MMA game faceplanted, this seems like a strange marketing scheme at best and a stupid vanity project at worst. As for how good the game could be, that usually depends on who’s developing it:

Kung-Fu Games, the group responsible for creating the somewhat underwhelming Supremacy MMA title, are helping with the project. They also worked on on the new Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat and Ugly Americans games released by 345 Games — the Viacom-owned collective made up of Spike Games and Comedy Central Games.

‘Somewhat underwhelming’ is being kind to a game that one reviewer declared was “Easily the worst MMA game yet and also one of the most ineptly designed and ruthlessly un-entertaining fighting games for years.” Which is impressive considering some of the other contenders for that mantle like ” target=”_blank”>Fighters Uncaged. The Deadliest Warrior series of games is also known for being quite terrible even when taking into account it’s TV show licence origins. And don’t take my word that the Ugly Americans game is a steaming pile, download the demo off XBox Live and experience the taint for yourself.

So are you excited yet for this latest unneccessary MMA game from a developer who’s already showed they don’t really know how to make a good MMA game? I know I sure am!

    I’m glad those cats are getting paid, but this sounds like making a game just say you’ve made a game.  I know games; I’ve played Alex the Kid, and three other games.

    I’ve been downloading taints all day.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Holy shit, I just watched that trailer.  It’s presented like you know who those two man-boys are, and the title shots being earned thing matters, but MMA fans aren’t gonna buy this shit.  And they didn’t show off any kind of interesting action, and the graphics look like someone got PS2 graphics covered in cocaine mixed with pigeon shit – so gamers ain’t gonna buy this thing.

    Good job Viacom.

    Groovy one, Leti.

  • CAP says:

    This will flop horribly.

    They would be better off using this money to throw at talent for their live product.

    Or just burn it and get it over with.

    Ugly Americans is a good show. I will support this game by pirating it & giving a positive review online.
