Product Description

Def Jam Rapstar captures the essence of what Hip Hop is all about: the music, the battles and of course...the swagger. The ultimate emcee experience for video game consoles, Def Jam Rapstar is the only music game that focuses exclusively on Hip Hop. With more than 40 of the greatest Hip Hop songs available at release, Def Jam Rapstar allows you to be the star: by rhyming, using your console camera (PS3 and X360 only), and uploading your video to the fully integrated Def Jam Rapstar community. Def Jam Rapstar also offers you the ability to freestyle over tracks by some of the hottest hip hop producers and upload your freestyle performances for the world to decide how good you really are.
  • Def Jam Rapstar is the first music game fully dedicated to Hip Hop
  • With over 40 songs spanning the history of Hip Hop, Def Jam Rapstar offers a diverse track list with some of the biggest songs in Hip Hop from all music labels
  • Unlike most other microphone-based games, Def Jam Rapstar features custom, proprietary voice recognition technology that judge's lyrical accuracy. In addition to lyrical accuracy, Def Jam Rapstar also measures players pitch and timing to provide your complete score in real time
  • Utilizing the Xbox Live Vision camera or PlayStation Eye, Def Jam Rapstar allows you to create a video of the performance starring yourself, and edit.
  • Freestyle mode allows MC's in the making to kick your own lyrics over well-known producer's beats, offering a chance to show and prove that you have what it takes

This is a fun game that during the period that it was popular for karaoke games. It had interesting dynamics, and just good songs to sing to. I previously own this for the PS2, but wanted to be sure I had it for PS3 as well

Just kidding, no this game is not good. The song list is alright, with some classics and some recent releases ( for the game's release ). Now, the actual gameplay? Don't. I got this game for .50 cents as a practical joke because I knew going into it that it wasn't going to be a great experience. Pretty much you have to have a microphone (any thing works, I played this with a blue yeti), and you have to match the pitch of the singer, or say words as they come up. The actual detecting looks like its just giving you points if you make literally any noise, and even if it is actually tracking your voice, if you play this game from speakers, you just win. The game confuses the sound audio for you singing. So yeah don't buy this game unless you have a problem.

Great party game.

Lots of fun, especially in groups and I am not the biggest rap fan. Loses half a point for no ability to still DL songs and another half point for being censored with no option to change it. But overall its fun.

Great idea for a game!

This is a real fun game. It is great for parties. No game company thought of making a rap game this one probably made the best. They had really good songs but they were all from 2009 and 2008 and 1993 and the songs are fun. There may not be no online battles but I don't really care about those. I think they should make a second one!
