The ESRB has now rated EA Sports UFC 2. The violence in the game is understandable, but the interesting part about the game are the song choices in the soundtrack. There will be some suggestive lyrics…
The game has been rated “T” for teen. The content descriptors are: Blood, Lyrics, Mild Suggestive Themes, Violence. The platforms noted are PS4 and Xbox One.
The rating summary is where the main content of the game is highlighted. The MMA style violence is to be expected. The song lyrics are the funny parts. It sounds like they avoided choosing pop songs.
The rating summary says: “This is a mixed martial arts simulation game in which players fight against other real-world opponents in UFC-style matches. Players can use martial arts, wrestling, boxing, and grappling moves to cause opponents to lose consciousness or “tap out” from various submissions (e.g., choke holds and arm/leg locks).
Repeated strikes can cause opponents to bleed from cuts, causing blood to stain the mat. In between rounds, ring girls are depicted wearing revealing outfits (e.g., tight short shorts and tops) as crowd members are heard whistling/catcalling. A handful of tattoo designs depict women with large amounts of cleavage. Some song lyrics within the game contain the word “sh*t,” as well as references to drugs (e.g., “I’m chillin’ smokin’ weed,” “couple of J’s in the ash tray,” and “Just want the coke dealer house with the velvet rug”).”
