  1. The gameplay is marred by the unforgiving AI that brutally destroys you whenever you gain just the slightest advantage. With that being said, Def Jam is at times more stressful than fun to play.

    As far as sequels go, Fight for NY is to "Vendetta" what "The Empire Strikes Back" was to "Star Wars."
  3. The fact that it's got the deepest story ever seen in a fighter simply adds to the realistic feel of the brutal combat within.
