Def Jam Rapstar

Playstation Illustrated
1 February 2011
  • Excerpt: With music games seemingly reaching critical mass this holiday season, it seems like a huge oversight that there hasn't been a popular or successful rap game to enter the market. Rap is huge. There is really no way around that one. Artists like Lil' Wayne, Soulja Boy Tell'em, and Eminem light up the charts and sell millions and millions of dollars worth of music, so why has no one properly capitalized on the rap star fantasy?

  • Conclusion: If you like SingStar , but have always wished it had more hip-hop, then this is the game for you. I know that sounds like a facile verdict, but it's an inescapable one.

  • Excerpt: You may have quelled Karaoke Revolution, shot through SingStar, and completely licked Lips, but Def Jam Rapstar is going to knock you out, like mama said, regardless of how familiar you are with the featured artists. That's because this game does a surprisingly decent job of tracking the actual words being spit into the mic. No more coasting through a song by saying anything in the correct pitch. Rapstar will recognize any lyrical fronting and label it garbage.

PS3 Review – Def Jam Rapstar

PlayStation LifeStyle
18 October 2010
  • Summary: There are few titles that have represented the hip hop music genre in gaming; the only series that has incorporated it successfully would be DJ Hero. Last generation’s Get On Da Mic, which was released on the PS2 in 2004, was a failure both commercially and critically. So when Konami announced Def Jam Rapstar it left many people skeptical of how it well it would be received.
  • Pros: + Great first entry into this series that encompasses hip hop and the roots of it., + Community aspect adds great depth to the title that will keep you coming back for more.
  • Cons: - Track list seems a bit short when compared to other games in the same genre.

  • Conclusion: Within the karaoke sub genre, it's definitely up there with the rest. This is not as extensive or intricate as other "instrument" based music games, which definitely has a noticeable effect when comparing it to them. But this game isn't trying to be that, it's simply offering great tracks from a wide range of artists like old school acts Wu-Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G, Tu Pac, and Public Enemy along with newer mainstream artists like Soulja Boy, Yung Joc, and Drake.

Def Jam Rapstar Review

G4
13 October 2010
  • Summary: There's nothing like pretending that you have a negligible amount of musical skill, especially when it comes to something like fun like rapping. Def Jam Rapstar does a great job of combining old school and new radio hits to get the party started.
  • Pros: Amazing Track List Composed of Both Old and New Hip Hop, Party Mode Helps You Jump Right Into The Game, Easy To Use Community Features Help You Share Your Videos, It's An Incredibly Fun Game
  • Cons: Swear Words Replaced By Blanks, Requires You To Really Know The Lyrics To Beat The Game

Expert Review

powergamer.se
14 May 2013
  • Conclusion: De som vill ha kul med hiphop borde ta sig en titt på Def Jam Rapstar men tänk på att det inte är någon simulator som försöker lära dig hur man rappar utan ett karaokespel. Men vissa låtar kunde Terminal Reality helt klart ha utelämnat och varför inte fler kvinnliga artister? De som köper det i Sverige kommer förmodligen få exklusiva låtar från Storbritannien, grimescenen med Dizzee Rascal till exempel men de fanns inte på mitt recensionsexemplar tyvärr.
  • Pros: • Bra poängsystem • Några klassiska låtar • Rolig community
  • Cons: • Går att fuska lite • Vissa val av låtar • Censuren

Review: "Def Jam Rapstar" (PS3)

gamingxp.com
6 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Ein neues Musikspiel? Ja, aber diesmal ein waschechtes Rap-Game. Ob dieses überzeugen kann, lesen Sie in unserem Review... Das „Def Jam“ Label ist bereits durch „Def Jam: Fight for New York“ und „Def Jam: Icon“ aufgefallen. Doch mit „Def Jam: Rapstar“ ist nun erstmals kein Kampfspiel, sondern ein Musikspiel erschienen, das vieles besser machen soll als etwa „ Singstar “. Dies ist zwar nur teilweise der Fall, doch Spaß macht das Spiel allemal.
  • Pros: Gute Songauswahl, Sehr gute Punktezählung
  • Cons: Songs müssen wirklich auswendig gelernt werden

Def Jam Rapstar (PS3)

Gamesurf
4 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Nonostante la presenza di numerosi titoli musicali e di Karaoke, si sentiva la mancanza di un gioco incentrato sul RAP. Def Jam Rapstar colma egregiamente questa lacuna non limitandosi ad essere il “solito” Karaoke a tema ma sfruttando egregiamente le licenze presenti, offrendo una discreta modalità carriera e varie forme di gioco, tra cui il Freestyle.
