Whats with the look of the buildings in the background? And the seemingly cut-up car? This looks weird, in a American McGees Alice kind of way. Which is cool, but not fitting in the Def Jam style. So ... strange.

I've added the official announcement. Looks like the environments are moving with the music. Strange.

Had much fun with Def Jam on the PS2.. i think i will luv this part of the game too!

the graphics look ok but this is wrestling and Rap culture in one. Its like two of my worst enemies in a video game lol. I wont be buying it, but its nice to see the 360 is getting quite a few of the ps2 sequals. It means alot more developers are going multi platform. Which is nice.

"What's wrong with the buildings..."

Sheesh.....don't people READ anymore??

We are completely innovating the role of the environments in the games, moving from the typical lifeless arenas the hip-hop celebrities are fighting in to environments that play an instrumental part in the fight where they will react to the music and interact with both characters like a third fighter.”

Why so? they seem to be trying to innovate with this game.

I'm not into Hip hop and stuff, but I definetely LOVED Fight for NY for PS2 (Yeah I can actually play a game without being biased by its branded content)

I loved the violence, the finishers, the huge amount of characters, and one of the best Story modes in a fighting game EVER. Great voice acting as well.

So this announcement really made my day.

Has anyone else noticed lately that EA games have all been sharing the same visual style? This whole, "street" look... the same slightly over-exposed imagery, washed out colours, etc... am I just going crazy?

edit: this wasn't meant to bash the game in any way btw, it still looks pretty impressive, heh..

i actually like the look of this, the graphics are pretty good and suited to the scenario, looking forward to beating up some rich rapper ass!
Commented on 2006-10-18 17:29:50
I'm really looking forward to this, Def Jam is so much fun.

very very boring, ea has lost all imagination, dancing buildings, whatever

Def Jam is absolutely awesome. No amount of crazy hip hop bullshit could taint the core of that game, which was just nuts. In fact, those of you who have been enjoying Sega's Yakuza can probably imagine how the fighting in this game is set up. You've got loads of context sensitive moves, but also a huge number of things you can do from different grabs.

Create-a-character is where it's at, of course, for all you non-rappers. You can mix styles and buy moves however you like, and sort of tailor your own street fighting style.

Trust me, if this is anything like Fight for NY and made with as much attention to detail and customisation as Fight Night 3, it'll be fantastic. Oh and a bit of Live play on top too, please.

OMG young jeezy, jigga man, dare i dream?? ricky ross oh wow

again for the obvious slow people...

The buildings 'dance' with the music... They actually move accordingly to the music stream.

the graphics look insane lol

Yeah "slow"... haha.. :/

Dancing buildings in a game lol ... again, that's what IS wrong with the buildings, eh?..
that is probably the dumbest idea i have heard in a while... will they charge for it as well?
Commented on 2006-10-18 19:57:32
Are they trying to make it "cool"? And make it look like a real music video??

Some people love to just grab innovation and fling it over their shoulder..
Taking a cue from good ol' Ninty I see...

(Where innovation is stupid)
Commented on 2006-10-18 20:20:47
hey whats with the buildings??



(just kidding hehe)
Commented on 2006-10-18 22:37:27
It would seem people dont like new things, stop bitching for gods sake you havn't even seen it yet.

I mean seriously come on now, its obvious your looking for reasons to hate the game, get over it.
