Def Jam: Icon Xbox Live Achievements Spotlight

Where's our ten points for beating down Ludcaris? We've got the full list of Xbox Live Achievements in Def Jam: Icon inside.

There's no denying that the upcoming hip-hop brawler from EA Chicago, Def Jam: Icon, looks practically unlike anything else out there. Where else can you take control of rap stars like Big Boi, Ludacris, and The Game and duke it out in amazing stylized environments that pump and shake with every beat emitting from the game's cutting-edge soundtrack (or one of your own choosing)? Truly, this one's got style to spare. The game (which we recently previewed) is due for release in just a few weeks for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but up until now, we didn't know about one of the key components of the Xbox 360 version of the game: the Xbox Live achievements. We recently got the full list from the folks at EA Chicago, which we've reprinted below. The 34 achievements in the game include a mix of special move requirements, online wins, and several built around the single-player "build a label" mode. Check them out:

That's the last time we ask for full service.

  • Feel the Power (10 pts) - Solo hard or ranked: End a fight at the TV studio with an electrifying experience for your opponent

I think the achievement points will save this game from sinking.

I hope they completely re-made this game because the demo was trash

This sucks. Def Jam Vendetta was the best of the series. Why has EA taking this game in this direction? DJV sold ALOT! I played the demo for this on Sexbox 360. And i must say im not looking to buy this.

"miiiguel I miss a fighting game hard. Loved FFNY, so I'm not even gonna play the demo, I'll jump right into buying it. " that would be a big mistake, this is nothing like FFNY, its total crap. play the demo. you will be thanking your lucky stars you didn't buy the game after trying the demo.

Worst game ever. Actually, great for humor value. After playing the demo with friends we laughed so much that it was worth it in that sense.

The demo was crap. What about putting a fighting game together with Rock stars.

I didnt hear anything about being able to play live matches online. It would be nice if they could since it hasnt been featured in any of the previous Def Jams. Hey..since they have a Hip Hop wresting game, all EA needs to do is make a one with Heavy Metal players. It should be called HeadBangers Jam...lol! And EA if your reading this, its just a joke, dont even consider..lol

Speaking from the standpoint of being a big fan of FFNY, I am truly dissapointed in this rendition in the Def Jam series. When I first read that the series would be on the next-gen I was so excited. I thought they could only add to an already great game - EVEN if they just ported FFNY to the X360---. Needless to say I think the game has taken a huge step back. What makes the previous games great was the different fighting styles and special moves. Why did they give this game to the Fight Night guys?? They made this game just a SLOW-punch and kick game!! Stay with Fight Night, it's good, do screw with the FFNY formula!! Having music in a game is good but why make it such a important part of the game?? With this game coming out next month, it doesn't look to me that they can improve this game to be more like the past ones. It's a shame, I only hope this game doesn't kill off the series for good!

I miss a fighting game hard. Loved FFNY, so I'm not even gonna play the demo, I'll jump right into buying it.

Doesn't sound appealing. I'll pass.

ive playied the demo now an LOT and i think that the fighting system is tight the graphics are top notch also i love they way they block its so real . only thing is where are the special moves at like in Fight for Newyork that would kind of hurt the game if it doesnt have the over kill moves like in DEfJAM FFNY.but so far so good p.s. o i hope you can turn off that background involment in ramked games online and off cuz that stuffs gets in the way of the fight .also can we still create an fighter i didnt see anything about that .also it would be realy tight if you could use the xbox live web cam and take your pic for your create a fighter man that would be sick as, you know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! alright peac .where ARE THE PICS OF ALLPROFOOTBALL 2K8

Add Def Jam Fight for NY to the Xbox 360 List and I'll repurchase FFNY.

sickboy84

you know , i been download it , i used to play def jam game on xbox before so when i played it on demo, the graphic are mint, but the thing i don't like which is you know the background keep jumping as follow the hip hop music which its silly, not real, but it too bad to put me off, so im not buying it , i like the def jam - fight for ny far better than silly background jumping

The demo wasn't that bad...now keep in mind I've never played a Def jam game b4, so I suppose I can see what some people are saying about how they don't like it.

I played the demo, it's a dag on fighting game not wrestling i hate when games go away from what made them great in the first place gosh. i didn't like it at all hopefully the full game is better thank good i got gamefly.

i played the demo and it felt alot more like a fighting game instead of a wrestling game, the fighting system seems to be a huge downgrade from fight for ny

Most of these sound pretty easy. You may have to work with a friend for Critical Beat Down, though.

The achievements in this game looks pretty easy.... but the online ones will take awhile

eViL_kA

Judging from the demo, the fighting does feel like a downgrade from the last DefJam. Then again, they might have used the crappiest characters for the Demo but i guess we won't know for sure until the game releases.

well some off the achievements look hard win 15fights in a row! looks like me and 1 off my m8s will just get that 1 i would give the achievements 7/10 becuase they do looks pretty hard BTW my gamercard is Kurt Ace now playing rainbowsix cod3 gearsofwar f.e.a.r and lost planet gamerscore = 18,000

I just got done playing with the demo, I did about five fights and won the last three handily. I don't really understand everything about the fighting system, but so far it makes much less sense to me than the last game. I'm not so sure about this one, we'll see.

Hm...sound pretty easy but I haven't played the game so what do I know.

The achievements sound alright, but it seems a little too much tied into the levels... however still sounds great! Can't wait for this game!
