Product Details:

In collaboration with urban lifestyle powerhouse Def Jam Interactive, EA Chicago - the team behind the critically acclaimed EA SPORTS Fight Night series - is integrating hip hop culture and gaming like never before. With the hottest music seamlessly infused into the world around you, the game's environments pulsate, crumble, and explode to life with every bone-jarring beat. Time your attacks to the driving bass and use falling debris and exposed environmental hazards to pound your rivals. Featuring an all-new single-player story, the game takes you deep into the life of a high-rolling hip hop mogul to build a record label, discover new superstars, and become a hip hop ICON.


  • Musically Charged Combat - Beats trigger interactive hazards around you as your environment comes alive and reacts to the music. From exploding gas pumps to spinning helicopter propellers, taking advantage of your surroundings is just as important as your toe-to-toe fighting skills. Become one with the beats to rule the streets.
  • DJ Controls - Use the analog sticks like turntables to add beats, switch songs, and make music your weapon. Throw down blistering attacks and brutal combos with the next-gestural street fighting system.
  • Fight to Your Own Beat - Battle to your own music or against the music of a friend. Upload any song to create an endless soundtrack that animates the environment and drives the core fighting mechanics. Prove once and for all who's music's king in the first authentic video rap battle.
  • Become a Hip Hop Icon - From the writers of 24 and Training Day, build an empire and live the life of a music mogul by signing artists, managing their careers, and releasing their hit songs. Do whatever it takes to become an ICON in the world of hip hop. But beware - you never know who is watching you.
  • Hip Hop's Best - Fight with or against the biggest stars in hip hop. Artists like Ludacris, T.I., Paul Wall, The Game, Big Boi, and more are all instrumental in your building a record label and becoming a hip hop ICON.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight fighting game ever on Xbox 360! Awesome video game, Def Jam Icon let the gamers use their own custom soundtracks from the portable devices and the Xbox 360 hard drive to fight along on your own songs in the game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game, but where's the sequel !!! Despite what some would say, I thought that def jam icon was a pretty good game. Most people would say that this game sucked because it wasn't as good as ny or you can't use weapons anymore and stuff like that, but I thought that the game was well made and delivered. It certainly met my expectations I mean what more could you ask in a game that lets you fight other rappers with your favorite rappers. Not to mention the graphics are fantastic, or was for its time but overall it's still a beautiful looking game, and has a good soundtrack. All in all I would recommend this game to anyone who likes rap and fighting games, I mean if you like hip hop and fighting games then this game should be right up your alley, like you should definitely pick up this game when you get the chance to. So yeah people I liked def jam icon, sure it wasn't as good as ny but it still delivered and I'm still waiting on that sequel which we will hopefully be getting in the new systems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for your casual gamer I just got this in 2013( even though its from 07) because honestly I forgot def jam fighting games although I remember how I loved fighting artist to their songs or other songs back in the day so this is nothing like Vendetta or FFNY( i.e. Blazing taunts or Special moves) but it makes up for what its missing with environment control which is interesting I mean swinging your arms like a DJ and making the whole club bounce that is freaking sweet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Def Jam Icon, Awesome Fighting Game Def Jam: Icon is my favorite fighting game to play on Xbox 360, because on the Xbox 360 verison, you can upload your own soundtrack in any music genres from Hip-Hop, R&B, Techno, Rock, Metal etc. Play as your favorite rap artists and Anthony Anderson in this game, perfect sound, graphics and gameplay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Pros and Cons Pros:Better Music, New Fighters, Better Story Mode, My Soundtrack, New Fighting Style, etc. Cons: Normal Difficulty feels like a hard Difficulty, Fighting Style gets redounded, etc. In my opinion, this games is worth the playing/buy because you get a whole new experience of Def Jam and this game reflects based off Fight Night 4

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great music bad gameplay it is not that good of a game but it has great music. The game is too much of a challenge and doesn't provide a real sense of gameplay even though the music that it provides is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Soundtrack and decent gameplay and good story Def Jam Icon is a pretty good game for people that are into the custom soundtracks and the uncensored soundtrack. The GAMEPLAY is fun depending on certain types of music you put in the game. I like it when the environment starts to blow like helicopter blades hitting you and gas tanks blowing evry beat you hear. You can even change soundtrack durng gameplay and vreate a playlist. The GRAPHICS in the game look awesome that the character details are very nice. The STORY is great that it is all about the player reaching up being the best rapper, and that you can even create budgets on songs and do marketing and other business deals on the phone and create your suspect and customize clothing like on Fight for NY. The SOUND is decent but like i said earlier, it is better when you put your own custom soundtracks. Doesn't have to be rap but as long as it has a lot of beats. Like C'mon ride the train, Not afraid by eminem, and other songs are an example of a lot of beats in the environment. The LASTING APPEAL it is still fun to play, too bad they didn't have more fighters for dlc or more venues but since the game is less expensive, it is probably worth it. The fighting system is ok but when the camera closes up its great. Overall, Icon is great but i am not going to say that it is not bad or that it is better because the game plays different compared to the previous two. I just like how the custom soundtrack is in the game and that it almost stays true to the hip hop genre, in my opinion, but to me the game isn't really terrible, the soundtrack makes the game better, its worth it for people that like the rappers and hip hop, but i enjoyed this game.
