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.

Hip Hop+Wrestling= Def Jam Vendetta
17 December 2015 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

You wouldn't think a video game feature Hip Hop Artists fighting in the wrestling ring would be appealing to anyone well this game clearly changes that.

This is EA Sports Big taking the sport of Wrestling and combining it up by adding Artists: DMX, Method Man,Redman, Ludicrous, N.O.R.E. Capone, Scarface,Joe Budden,Ghostface Killah, Keith Murray, WC and Funkmaster Flex

It goes to show that with just a little creative work and talent you can make a game to appeal to both hip hop and wrestling fans alike

What I like about the game is that you get a mix of WWF No Mercy and WCW/NWO Revenge where you can just pick it up and play which helps a lot taking two of the best games to ever been created and mixing them into the game play making it a winner to many fans plus it features a very good story mode to gets your attention.

The Graphics are very good as well with attention to detail to the characters the arenas are what I like most about the game because they are different and cool

The sound department is where the game is also impressive with the voice work being having the artists voice themselves along with other voice actors plus the soundtrack has feature songs from each artists to make the game more excellent

The controls do take some times to get the hang of which is one of the few drawbacks of this game since we are dealing with a different style of game

However Def Jam Vendetta is a good game just takes time to get a hold of but with a few tries you will be getting into the game

I give Def Jam Vendetta an 8 out of 10
