    It's a skill-based game that manages to be surprisingly technical, but never at the expense of fun. It's hugely rewarding, too: after several extended spells on the game, Mr Gaston had the balls to perform Gold Digger on stage in a Croydon nightclub - and round there, they kill people who suck at karaoke.

    There isn't much to the game's career mode, but this game will certainly be a sure-fire winner at parties.

    Though it lacks the rich community features of other versions, Def Jam Rapstar still has enough great songs to get your living room bumpin'.

    As far as gameplay goes, it's in the same vein as Singstar and co, with the significant difference being that it doesn't really work very well. [Issue#56, p.68]
