Def Jam: Fight For NY

Overall: Overall the game is fun to play espcially for the first time... the linear story mode makes for boring play after a while and for some people may turn them off. The gameplay is great, the sounds are good, but the story could have been alot better. if the user had been able to make choices throughout story, or even more cut scenes perhapes.. the game might of been more enjoyable.

Gameplay: When i first played the game i noticed it is alot different from its previous release (vendetta) and to say the least bit it is very good. They did a fantastic job intergrating the different fighting styles together to create one hell of a fighting game. The ability to use weapons is a nice touch, but i really like being able to interact with the crowds and your environments, being able to turn the table on your foe with help from a baseball bat, or smashing his face into a brick wall really adds to the fun factor.

Now that what i like is out of the way, i can get to the story. When i first poped the game in and start story mode and say the first cut scene i smiled and said to myself this will be a pretty neat game... the cut scene involves D-Mob ( the boss from vendetta ) getting arresting in a club and being taken to jail. As he is being transported in the cop car, another car rams the police car and d-mobs escapes. After this you are asked to look at some pictures of suspects (your fighter), or if you dont wanna choose any of those you can do a sketch and make your own character. Although being able to pick from alot of options, you can do alot of different things and come up with similar looking guys, but overal its a nice touch, and fun way to replay the story mode.

As i got going i noticed i got messages and voice mails on a pager telling me about up comming fights, messages to come to the gym, voice mails about new outfits comming into the store.. first impression was pretty good. But after a bit of playing, it gets a lil repetitive, the voice mails and message's are all scripted, they are the same no matter what you do, who you fight never changes. The storyline is always the same and sometimes you have to fight 5 - 6 fighters in a row to get to a cut scene, making it rather boring play at times. You do rank up points and you train at the gym.. making your guy better, faster, stronger, buying new special moves (there are alot of them). When you complete the game playing the story mode its gets old real quick, and rather being able to complete it farley quickly.. i finished the game in about 7 hours.. Was disapointed but i still find myself playing it off and on, especially when buddies stop by...

Graphics: The visuals in this game are much improved from vendetta, the level of detail in all the fighers, esspecially the faces are perfect. The "bling" you can get from purchasing plantium chains, and diamond rings sparkle and show off there dazzle while you fight... of course its not cheap ;). The arena's you fight in are well done, some offer different ways of KO'ing your opponent.. throwing your oppenent in front of a incomming subway train or out of a 3 story window never gets old ;). Lastly the ability to add and buy new cloths along with getting tatto's allows you to do something with some of the money you make during fights. You can get your guy looking pretty stylin' with some of the outfits they have.

Audio: The audio/sfx in this game is great, presented in Dobly 5.1, you can bump to many of its hot songs from its hip hop soundtrack. The gameplay and environment sounds are well done, although some are brought over from vendetta', they are spot on. The crowd noises and annoucners i liked.. the way the crowd would get really hyped up if you were whoopin on someone or how quiet and pissed they would get if you were just dancing around. The sound is very well done and the nice size soundtrack it packs makes for no dissapointments.. at least for me.

Suggestions: Make the replay value of the game just a little bit better. Try and add a more in-depth story line, allowing the user to interact and change outcomes of the game... Broaden the storyline more and you will have a for sure keeper.
