Rated 4 out of 5 by from The real successor to the N64 aki games With playing the last 6 out of 7 Smackdown games on the PS2 and conquering the Day of Reckoning series I was thirsty for a new wrestling game and thats what brought me to Def Jam Vendetta. Def Jam is a unique game to say the least with having rappers duke it out in the ring via Wrestlemania 200 and No Mercy style gameplay that only Aki can bring to the table. Theres enough wrestlers here to justify it a good wrestling game. Not a whole lot of different matches but singles is so fun your really gonna care less. The best thing about it is Aki kept the gameplay simple and similar to there N64 titles and it pays dividends here. Graphically nearly 6 years later the game still looks great. The only real weak spot is the story mode is pretty short but is a typical wrestling story mode that is decently done. Its not a great story but hey it fits the tone of the game. Overall the greatest thing about this game is your finishers or so violently executed and well animated its gonna make you wish some of these finishers were in WWE games there so freaking brutal its great. Hey if you got a few bucks to spend here you go this game is fun on single player and would be a great multiplayer game for any fan of wrestling or fighting games or game night for a group of friends. Presentation - 9 Graphics - 9 Gameplay - 9 Replayability - 9 Overall - 9 out of
