"Must rent...not so much buy"
3 stars"

For you lovers of hip hop and all things gangsta this one is for you. If you are just into fighting games though, this may not be your cup of tea. Initially fighting is innovative how the music is used as part of your arsenal to beat your opponent. Watch as you slam ‘E-40’ to the ground and your character ‘The Game’ takes one hand to his ear, and another to his Air turntables to slow down the music and pump it back up to blast your opponent away again.The line up is huge with the latest hip hop stars and producers. The fights do get a tad repetitive with only a limited range of moves but the storyline is far better that what we have seen in previous instalments of the Def Jam series.

Music 10/10

Game play 6.5/10

"A big step down for Def Jam series"
2 stars"

Def Jam 2 was such an amazing game and I couldn't wait for this one to come out as it was on the new system. Unfortunately this game is really nothing compared to Def Jam 2. It really doesn't get good reviews and I guess thats why they havent made another Def Jam game since this one which is a shame because the first two games in the series were really good.

"Homer would drool 4 this game"
5 stars"

I hope it lives up to the high standards of Def Jam Fight For New York (FFNY). It is my favourite game and I have played a few. If any one has FFNY the tell me immediately as I must have a copy of the best game ever.

Description

In collaboration with urban lifestyle powerhouse Def Jam Interactive, EA Chicago-the team behind the critically acclaimed EA SPORTS Fight Night series-is integrating hip hop culture and gaming like never before. With the hottest music seamlessly infused into the world around you, the game’s environments pulsate, crumble, and explode to life with every bone-jarring beat. Time your attacks to the driving bass and use falling debris and exposed environmental hazards to pound your rivals. Featuring an all-new single-player story, the game takes you deep into the life of a high-rolling hip hop mogul to build a record label, discover new superstars, and become a hip hop ICON.

  • Musically Charged Combat-Beats trigger interactive hazards around you as your environment comes alive and reacts to the music. From exploding gas pumps to spinning helicopter propellers, taking advantage of your surroundings is just as important as your toe-to-toe fighting skills. Become one with the beats to rule the streets.
  • DJ Controls-Use the analog sticks like turntables to add beats, switch songs, and make music your weapon. Throw down blistering attacks and brutal combos with the next-gestural street fighting system.
  • Fight to Your Own Beat-Battle to your own music or against the music of a friend. Upload any song to create an endless soundtrack that animates the environment and drives the core fighting mechanics. Prove once and for all who’s music’s king in the first authentic video rap battle.
  • Become a Hip Hop Icon-From the writers of 24 and Training Day, build an empire and live the life of a music mogul by signing artists, managing their careers, and releasing their hit songs. Do whatever it takes to become an ICON in the world of hip hop. But beware-you never know who is watching you.
  • Hip Hop’s Best-Fight with or against the biggest stars in hip hop. Artists like Ludacris, T.I., Paul Wall, The Game, Big Boi, and more are all instrumental in your building a record label and becoming a hip hop ICON.
