Very Good

Suprisingly good

The game is pretty good. I didnt have any expectations before playing it. I played Def Jam Vendetta so figured it would be the same. But what surprised me the most were the actual actors they had in the game (Anthony Anderson, Russell Simmons, Kevin Liles, Melyssa Ford) not to mention the various hip-hop artists. And couple that with the off the chains graphics made for a good game. The detailed custom character build(similar to Fight Night Rd. 3)was a nice graphic touch which gave the game more life and the fact they put the character in animation in the stories was excellent.
Didn't like that you had a slim selection of fights to choose from in Build a Label mode, felt as a player you should have more selection in which artists you can go after. But I did love the fact you got to choose how much money was spent on their singles, which reflected in how much money you in fact got back. I liked the difficulty of the game, it took several times to beat certain characters. However, I didnt like that you were only able to choose from two fighting styles. The realism of the characters makes the game for me (unlike DJ Vendetta where everyone is built like on steroids)

Weak

Boring

For a fighting game this is the most boring one ever. I might as well have just played Fight Night because its about the same. When I play fighting games I want out of this world butt beatings not technical boxing style.

The game has a excellent realistic storyline, but as far as stuff to do in the game it lacks variety. All you can do is fight and go back to your house or a store. There's not much to the game. Fight,buy clothes or jewlery, get a tatoo, or work on your computer, no freeroam. All of the other games i've played on ps3 i've been amazed how much there is to do in the games.
