Def Jam Icon

AV Club
8 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Even if you don't own every Ludacris album, watching the rich environments rattle to the music is reason enough to give this a play. Just don't expect much depth from this beat 'em up.
  • Pros: The opulent environments bounce and disintegrate to the beat, and on the Xbox 360, you can use your own music. It's a blast to watch The Stanton Warriors shred an environment in seconds, while Garth Brooks takes 10 minutes.
  • Cons: Rappers who have your number—we struggled against Redman—are tough to overcome. The lack of moves means a lack of strategy and a load of frustration.

Turning Point: Fall of Liberty Review

IGN Entertainment
6 March 2008
  • Conclusion: As for game’s challenge, Turning Point provides four difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, Hard and Insane. Even at Normal, you’ll probably find yourself dying a number of times, and the checkpoint system might cause you to have to replay a sizable section over—and perhaps over and over and over—again.

Xbox 360 Review - 'Def Jam: Icon'

WorthPlaying
26 March 2007
  • Summary: EA Chicago is delivering star-stunning action and bone breaking beats as players live out the life of a hip hop mogul, going from rags to riches. Incorporating hip-hop culture into every aspect of the game, Def Jam: Icon will deliver the intensity of a no-holds-barred street fight but with style and...

Def Jam: Icon Review

IGN Entertainment
12 March 2007
  • Conclusion: It’s easy to forget that there’s a fighting game somewhere under the crates of music and thick attitude of Def Jam Icon . For a straight-up fighter, Def Jam Icon is mediocre. It was easier for EA Chicago’s Fight Night crew to get boxing right, as it’s much more constraining than street brawls where...

  • Summary: If you’re new to the series, Def Jam takes hip-hop artists and makes them have brutal fights. With ‘Def Jam Vendetta’ for the GC and PS2 and the sequel ‘Fight for NY’ released for Xbox, PS2 and GC, it proved to be a successful franchise.
  • Pros: Best graphics for a fighter on the 360, Hip-hop music should please fans, Voiceovers from big hip-hop artists
  • Cons: Bad controls, Fighting style slow and messy, Nothing new to bring to Live

NASCAR 08: Chase for the Cup

Console Monster
15 October 2007
  • Summary: What are some of the first things that come to mind when you think of NASCAR? If you’re like me, mullets, bucked and cigarette-stained teeth, beer bellies, body odor and American flags come to mind.
  • Pros: Damage modelling looks pretty neat, Sound effects are solid, Should please most NASCAR fans
  • Cons: Complete lack of variety, Graphics are not up to snuff, No sense of speed when driving

Def Jam: Icon Review

Eurogamer
19 March 2007
  • Conclusion: ICON may look the business, but if falls down in that most crucial of areas - it makes fighting a chore rather than an enjoyable experience. Granted, you still get to set Sean Paul on fire (which is enough reason to at least have a quick play on a demo pod in your local game shop), but the chances...
