Would Yukes be retained as developer? With EA having their own MMA game, would they just re-assign the developers of that to the UFC game? In time, all of those questions were answered. The EA Sports MMA engine wouldnt be used, and Yukes wouldnt be part of EAs vision for the game.

Developers Continue to Pull Wool Over Our Eyes

GaminRealm: "What has currently happened with Watch_Dogs is nothing new to the gaming industry, but its getting to a point where enough is enough and a line needs to be drawn. I, (and many gamers alike) am not a graphics whore, but that doesnt mean that I dont appreciate great visuals and that Im O.K. with continually being deceived with the product that I plan on purchasing. Lets cut to the chase: Its time for developers to stop misrepresenting their products."

NGB | Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition Review

NGB Wrote: "For those that have PlayStation Plus the choice to grab this game or not has been made particularly easy, although the rest might have a harder choice to make. Theres nothing here that warrants replay if youve played the PlayStation 3 version, whilst theres simply much better games on the store at the moment (namely Resogun and Outlast) both of which feel far more at home on the new tech than Dead Nation: Apocalypse edition ever will. Saying that, it does offer some solid and gleeful blasting action that does hold a decent amount of replayability through leaderboards and bundled DLC.…
