    Absolutely Infuriating, avoid at all costs

    This game is pretty fun at the beginning, but when you start getting to the end of the single player, it will almost make you break your 360. There are several glitches in the game, one just cuts off the voice messages y... Read Full Review

    .....I dont know about this one....

    This game was downright disappointing. It has excellent graphics and such, but it doesnt make up for its disastrous gameplay. No health bar, very few moves to execute, and overall boredomn. I did love Def Jam: Fight fo... Read Full Review

    Story Line Is Great But Once Its Done The Game Is Done.You Might Have Fun Playing This Game The First Two Days.

    Beat in a Day. Give it Away.

    “Let-down” is how I’d describe Def Jam. This is not the game I expected after playing the diamond-in-the-rough that was DJ: Fight for New York. Icon is what you might expect from a developer just beginning their venture ... Read Full Review

    The end of Def Jam fighting

    This game is completley horrible! I mean the fact that it is actually linked to the previous game (fight for new york) as a sequel should be a federal offense. the only thing this **** game has to offer is the great grap... Read Full Review

    Do not bother even renting this because it is that bad.

    This game has without a doubt the WORST fighting system ever in any game in history. It is like Fight Night in matrix slow motion. When you press the button to throw a "quick" punch it takes about 5 seconds f... Read Full Review

    Picked up this game because me and my buddy were baked and thought it would be hilarious for lil jon to brawl with E40. Waste of a free game rental. Granted we played it for maybe 2 hours and then lost all interest. The... Read Full Review
