Definitely one to rent.

It's the good ol fashioned AKI engine with about 70 fighters. Many of them are hip hoppers but there are some really weird choices too. But if you've ever complained that there aren't any fighting games where you can play as leathery character actor Danny Trejo, friends, complain no more. Also available as fighters, some more obvious picks than others...

Method Man and Redman
Ghostface Killa
Scarface
Ice-T
Snoop Dogg
Warren G
Kimora Lee Simmons
Flavor Flav in a tuxedo
Henry Rollins
Carmen Electra


Yeah, it's bizarre. But the fighting is pretty smooth, the use of environments brings a fun new element...

And the create a fighter is pretty deep, especially if you've ever felt like giving hip hoppers makeovers. It's a good time.

Though I did plow through the story mode pretty easily. That's why it's a rent and not a buy. In case any of y'all cared. But an enjoyable time, uh... fo shizzy.

I bought, mainly because I really enjoyed DJ Vendetta. Just keep in mind, this is a fighter, not a wrestler, so striking is going to do a lot more for you then constantly going for the grab.

Story mode is well written and you get some pretty humorous stuff in both the email/voice mail and the pre/post fight dialogs.

And absolute best of all, you can beat the ever lovin' crap out of Flava Flav... :-)

A few things that I would have like to have seen in the create-a-fighter was more hair choices, four finger rings, more pimp-esque clothes like a full length coat and big hat, and the most glaring thing, a chain with either a hubcap or the clock. :-)

I just wish there was a separate soundtrack that I could lay hands on.

Ok, we all loved Vendetta becuase of the game engine(nevermind the odd choice of putting rappers in a wrestling game.

Why did they go and try to reinvent the wheel again? The old game engine was fine. They changed it too much, and whats with not being able to change the button config? I picked up the X-Box version because obviously it looks better, and the block is on the right trigger? This is so awkward, and fustrating and I haven't played the game in almost a week becuase it's fustrating. I'm pretty good at the game and everything but the controls is HUGE issue. X-Men Legends and Burnout 3 are getting my playing time right now. I might revist Fight for NY to offer some beat downs on soem friends. But serious dissappointed in the X-Box controls. I knew I should have picked it up on the Cube.

It looks good, but I'm still holding out for a remake of Nintendo 64's WWF No Mercy. It's still me and my friends wrestling game of choice. Since the Nintendo DS is practically a portable N64 I've got my fingers crossed.
