While ufc Undisputed 2009 remains one of the surprise hits of that year and one of the most well-received and commercially successful MMA video games of all time, 2010 was far from kind to this unique niche in the video game market. UFC 2010 opened to lukewarm reception and modest sales, to the point where THQ had to adjust its earnings outlook for the year due to UFC 2010 underselling. Then EA released EA Sports MMA to critical praise and an uninspired public, ending the “UFC vs. EA” war before it ever really got started. 2011 isn’t shaping up to be too great of a year either, and never is that more clear than in the latest developments on “Supremacy MMA”.

It’s been almost five months since I initially reported on the upcoming video game, and much to my horror, it has yet to die in development like so many other failed projects. In fact, Supremacy MMA seems to be coming along quite nicely, and the group behind it recently put out a press release touting the involvement of MMA legend Jens Pulver. Here’s the highlights: “Supremacy MMA is as much about telling the fighter’s story as it is about delivering blistering-fast game-play that’s as brutal as the real thing, so we knew we had to get Jens for our game. His climb through the ranks of the underground into the pro spotlight and his willingness to continue to fight regardless of what title he bears exemplifies the fighter’s heart that Supremacy MMA portrays.”

In addition, the team released the game’s new tagline: “Unsanctioned, Unlicensed, Underground.”

Aside from Supremacy MMA, there are no major MMA video games to look forward to in 2011. The folks at THQ will be taking the year off in order to better refine their game, and we’ll most likely get their next outing sometime in 2012. Due to its lack of sales, the “EA Sports MMA” franchise is on life support at best, at worst it’s completely dead and won’t ever see a sequel unless a modern-day miracle occurs. And let’s not forget Fighters Uncaged, which premiered to utterly horrendous ratings and was a clear-cut cash-in by greedy developers hoping to make some coin off of the booming MMA craze.

It’s been a rough year, and that’s putting it mildly. And 2011 doesn’t look to be much better.

As a loyal video game nerd, this really saddens me. Neither UFC 2010 or EA Sports MMA were perfect games, but I’d be an unabashed liar if I didn’t admit that I had huge amounts of fun with both games before their unique but ultimately game-breaking problems caused me to trade both of them in. In regards to Supremacy MMA, I’ve been against this game from the start and I don’t see anything changing that.

My problem is simple: this is a terrible concept for a growing sport that’s still very much trying to throw off the negative stereotypes associated with it. And one of those clearest stereotypes is that it’s a barbaric sport that glorifies violence and puts every fighter in a severe amount of danger in each and every one of their fights. Not only does this game embellish every negative and unjust perception about Mixed Martial Arts, it outright revels in it. And there’s absolutely no way I’ll support a game like that.

I don’t say this lightly, I’d like to make that clear. But I truly and sincerely hope this video game fails. It’s the last thing we need right now, and in the sorry state of affairs the MMA video game community finds itself in, this game is basically kicking us when we’re down. And make no mistake, I plan on kicking back.

But what about you, fans and friends? What’s your thoughts on Supremacy MMA?
