  1. Def Jam: ICON successfully combines the label-management career mode and surprisingly deep fighting. This, coupled with great graphics, interactive environments, and a killer soundtrack, make ICON an easy game to recommend.

    Had this one lying in my game collection since 2009 when i bought it for like 10 bucks, back than i already hated the controls, now i pickedHad this one lying in my game collection since 2009 when i bought it for like 10 bucks, back than i already hated the controls, now i picked it up and it hasn't aged well at all, awful controls, awful A.I. Your character just punch and kicks whatever he wants to, remembering their moves is impossible, after i almost broke my controller i stopped the game, removed the disc and snapped it in half. The only thing this disc is good for is to be recycled so i hope that in one day a good game will be stamped on it. Full Review »

    Why did I give it a 1? Because the graphics are good thats why. Other than that it was by far the worst game I have ever played. From the Why did I give it a 1? Because the graphics are good thats why. Other than that it was by far the worst game I have ever played. From the amazing brilliant FFNY comes this horrible horrible game which really upset me in terms of how bad it was and I actually seriously wanted my money back and the 3 hours i spent 'trying' to give it a chance. The fighting was more limited than a piece of cheese and the A.I was idiotic. ALL my friends agree with me on this one... DON'T waste your time or money! Full Review »

    bought this game 2 days ago already broke a control pad in frustration. The controls are a nightmare seeing as i played it 4-5 hours straight bought this game 2 days ago already broke a control pad in frustration. The controls are a nightmare seeing as i played it 4-5 hours straight and still the right stick wouldnt do what i wanted it to. Apart from that the grathics are ok and the storyline is brilliant.
