Although I am not a big rap or wrestling fan, I love fighting games. Since I enjoyed Def Jam Vendetta, I figured Def Jam Fight for NY would be worth checking out. It has turned out to be the most entertaining fighting game I have ever played.

The game's single-player storyline revolves around a turf conflict between rival gangs, in which the ownership of clubs and other territory is determined by fights. Over the course of the single-player story, you unlock new fighters and venues which can be selected during other game modes, and develop your character.

The create-a-fighter feature was brilliantly incorporated into the story, and provides a good deal of control over the look of your character. You choose the body type, height, weight, skin tone, head shape, eye shape and color, hair style and color, facial hair style and color, even eyebrow shape and color, and select from one of five fighting styles to start out (kick boxing, street fighting, wrestling, martial arts, submissions).

As you progress through the game, you earn points which can be used to improve your fighter's abilities and learn new moves and up to two additional fighting styles. You also earn money, which can be used to purchase clothing, jewelry, tattoes, and hair styles. The number of choices, which is huge to begin with, increases as you get further through the game. The better dressed you are, the more the crowd favors you, which helps during fights by increasing your "momentum" meter. When this meter is full, you are able to go into "blazin" mode, where you can perform special moves.

Due to the variety of fighting styles and fight modes available, I think this game will appeal to anyone who enjoys fighting games regardless of their style preference.

Def Jam Vendetta was a huge success but the main problem was the game was too short. There were absolutely no weapons of and no variety of different match types. The option of create a wrestler was also not there. Apart from those minor glitches the game was good. Def Jam Fight For New York will be a much improved sequal. To start off with there will be about 45+ artists in the game including ones from the first title such as Redman, Method Man and Ludacris. There are lots of new ones like Busta Rhymes, Ice-T, Lil Kim, Flava Flav, Carmen Electra, Sticky Fingaz and Snoop Dogg. If you haven't played the first let me fill you in. You had to fight your way to the top by defeating D-Mob's crew. Once you got past them, it was you and D-Mob, before the match there was a cut scene where D-Mob shot your good friend Manny. Once you defeat him he goes to prison and the game is over. Fight For New York has a brand new stoyline. D-Mob has been broken out by someone and that someone is you. D-Mob returns to find his place threatened by a new comer Crow. You play as one of D-Mob's crew trying to fight your way to the top and take down Crow. Along the way you will be helped by your trainer Henry Rollins. As you progress through the game you earn more cash and just as well you have a place to spend it. You can get new tattoo any time you want. If you want a new hairstyle you can pay a visit to the barber and if you want to bling bling in a new outfit visit Jacob the Jeweler.

The gameplay mechanics have been thought over and have been significantly improved. When you begin you choose one of the five different fighting styles: kickboxing , street fighting, martial arts, submission and wrestling. You start with this style though as you progress you can have two additional fighting styles.

A year after the out-of-the-blue sucess of Def Jam Vendetta, EA Games releases, Def Jam Fight For NY, with similiar results. Def Jam Fight For NY is an excellent wrestling game with tons of replay value, and a cool hip-hop influenced storyline to boot.

Notice how I referred to the game as a "wrestling" game? Unlike the game suggests, Def Jam Fight For NY is predominantly a WRESTLING game. The fighting system is based upon performing grapples and simple strikes, and performing combos and special moves. With so many moves to choose from and unlock, the fighting system is suprisingly deep, but the fights get just a bit repetitive after a while.

Def Jam Fight For NY story mode begins when D-Mob is being taken away by the boys in blue, when suddenly, a mysterious car topples the police cruiser and allows D-Mob to escape. The driver of the mysterious car, as you soon learn, is you, and you then create the appearance of your character using a police composite sketch, a pretty clever way to create your character. D-Mob then asks you to join their force of fighters to try and take over the whole fighting circuit of the city.

There are over 40 Def Jam labelmates appearing as fighters in the game. Snoop Dogg, the Top Dogg (naturally) of the opposing gang, with Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe and many others on his side, while your crew consists of the likes of Method Man, Redman and a few others.
