Great find but I feel this game is not going to feel like the other ones.

I know the environment is suppose to interact with the music but the whole thing looks like a picture pop up book, it's that flat looking.

As for the gameplay it moved like it was in slo mo.

I'm a big fan of the series but nice looking characters doesn't add up to gameplay.
Let's hope that things change a little more with this game.

Just like Motorstorm this game moves in slow motion. I wonder if it's got something to do with the Ps3 or if the game's just in an early stage, looks weird albeit. Gameplay just looks silly with the jumping environment and all. Another sleeping pill from EA...

Ign said that the gameplay for the 360 and the ps3 was only running at like 10-15 fps, so what they most likely did was just speed up the frames per second to make it look good in the trailer. I think it will look better when it is actually running at a normal framerate.

well, the graphics were definately impressive. the gameplay was kinda slow, but i'm guessing that can be attributed to the game's early development. i've never gotten into the Def Jam games, but i'll most definately be keeping an eye on this one.

ApocalypseShadow6456d ago

it was sped up,looks like GARBAGE.somebody else might like this but this game doesn't hold a candle to games like vf,doa and least those games have REAL fighting styles.tired of ea cashing in on hip hop and the black about an action game staring a black heroe for a change.

Mikey_Gee6456d ago

are all the players black or hispanic .. ??

Not that I care, but where is that lady from a few days back that was b!tchen about racism in that little arcade type game.

Will We Ever See A New Def Jam Game?

The Def Jam game series has been laying dormant for over a decade at this point, but could we ever see a revival of some kind?

Interesting article, but I hope we don't.

Tell em. We need a Viewtiful Joe 3

Fight for New York was awesome.

Icon was pretty bad, but I'll give them some benefit because they tried to do something new. A direct sequel to FFNY would be grand, though in the era of microtransactions and EA being who they are now, one should tread carefully about that fantasy.

gamingtext20201137d ago

I hear you, but the rappers nowadays are completely lame and corny when compared to the rappers from FFNY.

I rather take a remake from the game than a sequel.

DarXyde1137d ago

You'll get no disagreement from me there.

For some reason, I hadn't considered that there would be modern rappers. Christ.
On the other hand, I wouldn't be mad if they added more Wutang members so I can "torture" Tekashi69. :D

Beastgamerkuma1138d ago

we definitely need it to return, but nothing like Icon since that was trash. The mechanics of Def Jam fight for NY and Vendetta was still great til this day.

boing11137d ago

Oh man, remake of Fight for NY would be awesome.

Silly gameAr1137d ago

I hope so. Just go back to the Fight for New York style, and forget Icon ever happened.

King_Noctis1137d ago

Man I used to really love DJ Fight for NY and DJ Icon back in the day. I hope someone (not EA) can revive this franchise.

King_Noctis1137d ago (Edited 1137d ago )

Icon sucks, I admit. But I used to love the DJ games so much that I was willing to accept any game thrown in my way.
