Mixed martial arts fans have patiently waited for this day for about 2 years. Gamers who like to compete online were shocked to find that some online modes in UFC Undisputed 3 are not working exactly as they should. UFC Undisputed 2010 had terrible online lag which at times made the game unplayable. Since then THQ has switched to their own servers in an attempt to correct the problem but it still persists. There were reports of poor online quality from a few influencial bloggers and media outlets that received a copy of the game early but they were assured that everything would be good to go on release date. Community manager THQ Tank had this to say:
Just to reaffirm, we are fully aware some users are unable to access certain online features. Player matches do work flawlessly however right now. We are addressing this issue ASAP and should have a resolution or further update shortly today.
The good news is that they are aware of the problem and are actively trying to fix it. The bad news is that gamers really don’t care and expect a fully functionalproduct from day 1. If THQ can fix this problem quickly, they will avoid a huge disaster and UFC Undisputed 3 should go on to become a great success.
