Did You Know?


Before Vince McMahon's purchase of World Championship Wrestling, Aki was working on a new WCW game, apparently a direct sequel to Electronic Art's WCW Mayhem. The game, WCW Mayhem 2 (working title), was put on hiatus once McMahon purchased WCW and thereby negated EA's license. They finished the engine and completed the game as Def Jam Vendetta.

Killer game !
26 June 2003 | by (Hermosillo, México) – See all my reviews

This game friggin' rocks ! It's a street wrestler with a surprisingly deep story for a game of this genre. You get to choose between 4 guys to participate in a couple of fights to save your friend's butt. Apparently you used to fight and had a girlfriend called Angel, you were beaten by a guy called D-Mob and he stays with your girlfriend. D-Mob is the main man in what comes to wrestling, he controls everything. When you finally solve Manny's (your friends) money problems, you decide you will enter the Def Jam contest so you can take a shot at defeating D-Mob, is this honor or what ? Anyway, while your playing in story mode you meet girls and they eventually fight for you and you unlock pictures of the real life models. The game controls are really good and the fighting is entertaining, there are over 1000 moves and around 40 fighters. The fights take place in seedy clubs and alleys since they're underground. And in the story mode you eventually have to fight with real life fighters from the eventual Def Jam license, and the game has an excellent soundtrack that rap fans will love. Even though the songs are edited by obvious reasons it's still an enjoyable experience, what bothers me about this game is that it is missing a create a wrestler. And the story is the same for the 4 main characters. The game has outrageous and impossible knockouts that are a characteristic of EA Big, I give this game a 9 out of 10.
