Rated 10 out of 10 by Charlie Melone Def Jam fight for NY: A great game
Def Jam Fight for New York is an extremely entertaining game. This game offers you to have a girl friend, beef with other characters and complete customization over your appearance and voice. I'd recommend this to any one who likes fighting because it combines rap culture with great fighting that gets better as you progress in the story mode. The only thing that is kind of bad is the fact that it takes forever to get development points to build up your characters moves and strength, stamina, etc. Def Jam Fight for NY has the potential to be the greatest fighting game to be ever made because Tekken, don't get me wrong; I like it, gets old really fast due to the fact that all you do is moves that don't lead to blood or death or anything, there just knocked out. In Def Jam you beat people close to death and make it as realistic as possible. I'd give this game 2 thumbs up and a 10 out of 10.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Gamer since the 80's Way better then Vendetta!
I was kind of hesitant to buy this game because of how bad Def Jam Vendetta was and the high price for an old game, but was happy I made this purchase. This game works really well I have no problems with the controls, and it is real smooth. The special moves are cool and there is many you can buy. There is weapons in this one and boy do they do damage you can turn the fight around with a nice bat or sledge hammer! The story mode is excellent you can buy all kinds of clothes and jewelry, and you can upgrade your fighting styles and attributes. This game is very fun and has a high replay value. You won't be disappointed. There is many different levels with interactive environments such as smashing a guy through a speaker or throwing your opponent in front of a train. I recommend this to anyone looking to get out some aggression.
Rated 10 out of 10 by acbrulez Best fighting game in 2000s
if you like fighting, making people give it Def Jam Fight for NY is the game for you. The campaign is the best, the gameplay is awesome and get to create your own street fighter. Pick kickboxing, submissions, street fighting and much more. EA games should remake this game for ps3, def jam icon sucked and the singing games aren't what people want. I would defiantly buy this if it would a remake of fight for ny in a heart beat for ps3, the best hardcore fighting game ever. i give perfect 10/10

Rated 9 out of 10 by ThePs3GamerBoy_NyC This Game Was Kinda Awesome
Def Jam: Fight For NY is a pretty good game when it comes to storyline and characters. The storyline is basically you playing as character u create, in a creative way, that joins a type of fight club. You and the members of your club fight for money against other competitors of different clubs. When things go wrong and somthing is taken from you, the game changes and you fight to get it back. When I played the game I got a feel for the storyline. When you go up against a tough fighter and you win your club respects you and you can buy clothes, and jewelery. Also you can get a girlfriend in the game. The way that you can do this is creative. Sometimes after a fight a cutscene will show a girl who saw u fight and starts to come on to you. You can deny or accept her. Another thing I liked about this game is that the characters, except for the one you play, are famous musical artists such as Redman, Ice T, Lil Kim, and much more. For a Playstation 2 game the graphics are good. The sounds are ok, nothing special. Gameplay is good. Fighting is always the way you want, meaning you can change your fighting style to your liking. You can also pick your special moves. I thought this gave the player more choice in gameplay making the game more enjoyable. Also in a fight there are weapons and interactive environments. You can use bottles or poles that find laying around. You can slam a person into a wall and use the wall as a weapon. Slam someone through stereos and tables, you name it you can do it. You feel good to win a fight. Overall I would recommend this game to all players who love fighting games. But if you dont like violence i would guess this game is not for you ( fair warning because this game has its moments ) This game definately has replay value.
