The graphics are pretty sweet, but the story mode kind of sucks. It's fun and all but the first two games were better. What happened the the fish off moves. Those were sweet. If this game had the finish off moves and not such a bad online the game could be a 9.
its a fun game with a great soundtrack. It gets fun but wats so frustrating is losing battles over and over again. except for this this game is awesome. The gracpics are great and offers a varity of songs and battles. I enjoyed this game and u will too

The game play is slow and the moves are not that great. Virtua fighter on my N64 was faster than this! Once you get the hang of everything the best part of the game is not fighting, it's managing the record label.
Fighting style gets boring after a while. For it being on PS3 which has been marketed as one of the fastest CPU's (Cell Processor) in the gaming world, it's very slow to render when you are putting on different clothes, it takes about a good 3 seconds for the system to update his clothes. Its VERY FRUSTRATING at best.
Also found a bug in the system: When you go over 1Billion in record revenues, you all of a sudden get a NEGATIVE billion in your bank account, thus not being able to put any money into marketing or clothes. You have to keep fighting until your record revenues go back up and can afford a 250,000 necklace :-)
On the PLUS side, the music is great and how you time the music to throwing a punch is even better.
For it being on a PS3, I really expected a lot more especially when the developers can take full advantage of the CELL processor and the PS3's power. Just LACKS and hope they go back to the drawing board on this one.
I really am greatful for companies like Gamefly because if I really liked Icon, I would have naturally purchased it. But it's going back in the mail for good!
