Review of Def Jam : Icon

From the review : "Only New York Fashion Week can rival the high-concept style in this star-studded hip-hop game. Players (or playas) build a record label by winning money in brutal street-style brawls and can deliver a good pounding to Ludacris, Lil John or any other Def Jam artist who happens to be on the receiving end of your best knuckle sandwich. Too bad the slow-as-molasses combat (and all-too-savvy computer-controlled opponents) keep this fighter from rivaling classics like Tekken, Street Fighter and Soul Calibur, but the innovative use of music, as both an aesthetic and a weapon, adds depth to the game. Factor in the detailed character creator and intriguing Build a Label story mode, and Def Jam: Icon still deserves a spin in the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3." (Def Jam: Icon, PS3, Xbox 360) -

It's decent. Never been a fan of this whole poser gangster thing though (the real gangsters are Italy and Boston, not the ghetto). You're better off with DoA, Virtua Fighter, or Soul Calibur.

Lost intrest in the series with the previews for this entry.....
I Liked the first two entries in the series, It was like playing the old WCW/NWO games for the N64 but tweaked for street brawling. they were tons of fun. This game doesn;t even ask me to give it a try.
