Additionally, the game will feature fights taking place in a ring as well as a cage.

The demo released Tuesday features four playable characters: Strikeforce heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem, former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley, former two-division title holder Jake Shields and Jason “Mayhem” Miller.

Its the traditional thing to say when playing EA's Fight Night 3 and 4. Button mashers vs stick swingers:)

Impossible to punch using Total Strike Control yet only press a button to sprawl or takedown.

I've been using the "Total Strike Control" for the past couple of days, used it in Fight Night as well, but it's just too sloppy on the feet in this game. I look at it like this. When a professional fighter throws a jab, a hook, a leg kick, he doesn't have to think "how" to do it, he does.

Wow. The striking is much more responsive with the "Classic" controls. It really opens your striking game, especially since the left trigger becomes the body modifier.I recommend to anyone currently using "Total Strike Controls" to try out the "Classic" setting. Especially those used to the UFC Undisputed controls.Give it a shot. It can't hurt. Not like you're the one getting punched in the face.

Very cool demo, but the lack of commentary and the inability to change control setups suck. The graphics on this game are amazing, I have never before seen a game in which the muscles of figthers stretch and change based upon thir body positioning. Once the full game comes out the ability to change control setups and fight rules and environments, it should be badass to play.
