    Def Jam Vendetta is, in spirit, the successor to No Mercy. It's a different license, but the same engine. If you played No Mercy, you know exactly how this game will play, minus a few tweaks. You can ...

    This game is okay if your into fighting games.

    Rated on May 13, 2007 by frodo15

    Def Jam Vandetta just doesn't do much to try and change the future of wrestling games. Although the sound is great and the moves look just as painful as we would hope, there's just somethings that don...

    AKI brings their classic fighting system to the rap world.

    Rated on October 02, 2004 by Frostman

    Anybody who was a fan of AKI's 64 wrestling games should find plenty to love here. The combat system is much the same, but that’s not a bad thing in this case. The game play is so addictive that I can...
