Def Jam Icon
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!
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.
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
THIS IS WATSUP!
this game is awesome!!as u may of heard people say this game is no good or something dont believe them! this game is somewhat worth it gameplay is great and cool story mod is amazing and the music is evrything you ever want butt if ur nota big fan of rapp or hip hop this aint a game for you.many characters and environments that are crazy.. the price might not be worth it so wait alittle so it well come down overall this game is awesomee!!
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.
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.
Huge let down
The first time I played Def Jam Vendetta I thought it was one of the funnest fighting games ever. Then Fight for New York came out and completely took the cake with the story line, fighting and fighter accessories. In my opinion during that era no other fighting game matched up or had the lasting appeal like Fight 4 NY. So I highly anticipated Def Jam ICON and got the chance to play at a friends house and never wanted to play it again. The gameplay and concept of the game is way different which used to be look flashy and fight. All Fight for NY need was a sequal, more characters (females) character features, tattoos and ext. I meen why change too much of what sells. Point is Def Jam ICON is corny they should of kept it more original and I wouldnt get this game if it was free.
I LOVED IT!
The story mode is amazing, the story-line is even better. The story-mode is different with the choices you make, as u are a record label CEO or a&r or whatever if u take a hot unknown talent alot of people are after you and the game becomes more interesting theres more to do and u can upgrade ur user made character a lot, but on the other hand if ur a flop the story mode is a bit shorter and u wont be able to do much with ur character. Then of course once the story mode is beat its pretty much like tekken or any other game u just pick people and fight or u can redo the story mode and make different decisions and see how it plays out. ALL IN ALL THE GAME WAS AMAZING i loved the sound track ive had this game for almost a year i think and i still find myself playing it just about everyday. GO OUT AND GET IT!
COLL GAMMMM E
Alright the game is cool no its perfect for gamers. You can have song go gold or platium or muti-platium. You earn money fast. You can make your guy look like g.
game for the rappers
since I'm black myself not to be racist but black people who love gangsta style and and rap with cursing would love this game I love the soundtrack and stuff but it's missing a few artist like lil wayne,eminem,drake,usher,trey songz, heck they could of even had bow wow or jayz but overall this game is raw but they should of made grand theft auto like similar to san andreas and stuff butt overall great B.E.T feature game.
