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.
This game was terrible, they changed the direction of the series and completely changed the greatly loved fighting style of the original first two games that made the fans love the series. That's why if you try and buy this used it costs 10 or less, while def jam ffny still cost 60 to buy used and it's a decade old. Don't waste your time with this game, I know I returned it right away. If I could give it a zero I would.
this a very cool game because it is about fighting just like the other def jam games but def jam icon lets you play as you're favorite singer or artist and you could fight you're favorite singer against you're least favorite singer that are available in the game.............. i would recommend this game to gamers who like to play casual games its very cool and i cant stop playing it......... :)...
I like the 2008 video game called Def Jam Icon. It is very cool the way you can use rappers to fight other rappers. Also I like the way it is a two player video game and each player can pick their own rapper, location , and song so during the fight each song will play.
the reason they took out all that blazing move is because their trying to make about music i can see why they took it def fight for new york came out in 2004 def jam icon came out in 2007-2008 def jam icon is a great game you dont have to hate it because blazin the gameplay is great and they have people you listen to today not people from 2002-2003 they put new song not old stuff def jam icon is about music not about blazin you should and really sit there and play it and you will have fun
I bought this game because I have DefJam fight for NY and it was a pretty good game so I tought this one should be good too. But the fight are to unrealistic like they fly when you kick or punch... This game is good to kill a few hours (if you last). But is not as good as it sounds.
