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... ;)

    Moonwalker Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Good lord, i just truly witnessed HDR. And now i see what all the hype is about. Xbox One S let's you enable/disable HDR on the fly and you can easily notice the differences then. (4 Hours ago)
