    Haven't we all wanted to bash up Ludacris?

    This game is absurdly hard. Or maybe I'm just really bad at wrestling games. Iv'e never beaten a wrestler first try, and just when I'm about to win, the opponent gets a powerful grapple move on me and then uses a Special... Read Full Review

    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 now see how much dam... Read Full Review

    This game is okay if your into fighting games.

    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't do so well. First... Read Full Review

    AKI brings their classic fighting system to the rap world.

    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 easily spend lots o... Read Full Review

    This is definately a must buy game for any wrestling fans.

    This is a great wrestling game. When I used to play my Nintendo 64, all I had were WWF Wrestling games. Ever since Nintendo moved to GC, it has been disappointing. But heres a wrestling game made by the same exact Develo... Read Full Review
