Game Play Interface (5 out of 5)
MMA Pro Fighter is a great looking game and works the same as the many rpgs on Facebook. The graphics are decent for the game and the fights have a good description and some basic animations of what is going on in the match. Some additional looks for your fighter would be a welcome addition. The game has introduced nationality flags shorts so that is a good start.
