Is that perhaps Anthony Anderson in the third screen? It sure looks like him.

is this going to be released sometime soon? Looks good and most likely going to be great fun like previous def jam.

Saw some videos of the game over at youtube. Visually the game does look great, but gameplay wise i don't think it is as great as def jam 2.

I loved def jam 2, it had some of the most awesome bone crunching moves and finishers. The story rocked and i loved customising my characters and seeing him in actual cutscenes

Shame, they took out the moves system from def jam 2. So far i the animations are stiff and whenever you do a powerful punch of kick the enemy is flying around..

I think def jam 2 was great for it's small arenas..where you could do some great moves and maybe even use the crowd to your advantage.

Hope other videos of the game will change my opinion..

P.S glad to see sean paul is back, never got enough beating the hell out of him >:)

i hope they sort that ear out from picture 3,but apart from that def jam has was wicked on xbox 1,i hope this is just a bit more longer with a deeper story and i want to play as THE GAME and kick 50 CENTS head in,maybe tpac as a secret unlock with biggie smalls too and proof ,they should do an unlock thing with all the fallen stars of hiphop

what is this game about....does it have rappers in it? co that 3rd artwork looks rapper The Game and the fifth pic looks like Ludacris

All I can say is, I hope they address the gameplay issues. As many have said, the videos of the gameplay in action have shown terribly.

If they do, this will be a phenomenal game.

Its like Dead or Alive but you can choode from rappers there Fat Joe, Ludacris, TI, The Game from what i can see in screenshots. :)

And you basically just fight each other in these interactive enviroments id advise people to go check out gameplay video in HD on gametrailers looks superb. :)

Looks way better than the PS3 version. Check the textures on the gas station pic. Yay!

HOLY BALONY...this looks the shit!
Commented on 2007-01-23 21:12:46
Holy crap! some of these visuals look amazing! look at Anthony A, I almost mistook it as a real photo =P Just the clothes and the ear that gave it away that it was 3d XD

You know I was specutal at first because they were going in a whole new direction from the previous two games (and i loved those games) but I'm really looking forward to this.

I don't know, graphics are ok but that isn't the issue.

Some choices they've made have me really puzzled and I'm affraid they are choking this franchise.

DJFFNY was such a great game (even though I couldn't stand the over the top gangster-rapper gimmicky stuff), but from what I've seen so far...*sigh*

What does "specutal" mean btw... ;)

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (43 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (43 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (46 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (48 minutes ago)
