Probably the best character renders ever. I think you missed the Russell Simmons, fat Joe and Ghostface characters. That is a sick level of detail, if the faces animate realistically its a rap (Pun intended).

first time i watched a video of this i thought it was gonna be utter crap! but with each new vid its just looking cooler and cooler. Why cant EA put this much effort in their other games which get a simple update every year! I mean this looks a completly different game to the first 2.

Roll on the demo and then march!

This game is just so wrong on so many levels, the whole game is just a big frigging comercial for the rap/bling industry. This game is so packed with advertising it should be free in fact ea should be paying us to play it ;)
On a more serious note i consider games like this to be a threat to the gaming industry and what i love about video games, it's becoming more and more like hollywood where flashy blockbusters produced only to make money are more popular than actual good movies. Ea's fifa series is a pretty good example of this a crappy/average football game that out sells pretty much everything.
My rambling anti ea rant aside i would play this game just to be able to kick Sean Pauls ass. :)

I can agree with you on alot of things. This game gives the hip-hop community a bad rap (no pun intended). This actually makes Celebrtiy Death Match look like Disney program. The senseless violence and overused profanity supports all of the stereotype that hip-hop recieves from the press. I don't care how badass the graphics are, the resources could have been used elsewhere. This game will sell to millions of wannabes who want to live the life of someone they may never live, a reknown hip-hop artist. The hip-hop industry doesn't need this to expand. Stuff like this will eventually lead to its demise.

They should've used those assets to make another war game. Something children everywhere should aspire to take part in.

Come on, what's wrong with you, he knows a thing about rap, he doesn't like it.........and you shouldn't start insulting him because he thinks the game will have some crap music.

Your post along with mine for replying should be bouleted.

These renders are either hit or miss. Literally. The Game, Bun-B, Paul Wall, and Jeezy all look really identical to real life, like seriously, real life, whereas the others look like they were done by a completely different designer. Ludacris looks rediculous. And they made Mike Jones' face look less fat that it is, while making Sean Paul look like a white dude, with a black mans forehead. Also, Jim Jones doesnt look high enough.

Not being skeptical, they all look really good, but some of these look real, and some of them look completley off. TI looks like a joke lol.
