The devastating knockout. The expertly-executed submission. The blood, the drama, the upsets. All are present in Alex Williams Strike or Submit (S!O!S!): A Game of Mixed Martial Arts Combat. In S!O!S!, players use pen-and-dice to take control of their favorite mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters and pit them against one another in realistic combat. Want to relive the classic title match? Play out the heavyweight dream fight? Re-enact the gutter brawl from the streets of London? All is possible in the most accurate and fun MMA game created to date!
Each competitor in S!O!S! is an individual. Instead of having abilities based on a numerical system, where Fighter A is simply two points better at takedowns than Fighter B, S!O!S! boasts dynamic ratings for each fighter. Fighter A may be a ground and pound specialist, so while other options are available to him, the majority of his possible maneuvers will be focused on getting his opponent to the ground and laying a beating on him once he gets there. Fighter B, meanwhile, may be a submission wizard who sometime lets his machismo get the better of him, causing him to strike with reckless abandon standing. Some competitors are also known for specific moves. If Fighter C throws a big right hand and showcases a tight triangle choke, you can be sure theyll be accurately represented in S!O!S!. All of the above are factored in to make each the fighter as realistic as possible you wont see any triple lightning kicks here!
*Players Make the Decisions*
Some simulators never allow users a say in the action; S!O!S! is different. In S!O!S!, players are given the ability to choose between moves and strategies that will benefit their fighters. If a sprawl and brawl strategy is desired, takedowns can be foregone. Likewise, if time is running out in a fight and a submission is necessary to obtain victory, a high-risk attempt at one can be chosen over more deliberate ground and pound.
