Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover

Def Jam: Fight For New York - The Takeover

You don't often find a videogame that's so unapologetic in its intention. Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover is simply about smacking stupid people in the face. Taking its cue from the rude, ignorant, macho and downright nasty world of mainstream US hip-hop, it rolls around in its own stupid crap like a grinning pig. It shags your mum and tells your mates she lays there like a sack of spuds. And if you complain about it, it'll smash your head into a brick wall, you little bitch.

It's refreshing to play a game that makes no apologies for being so ignorant. It's authentic and it clearly doesn't give a flying one whether you're offended by it or not. Just like the console versions of the series, players take part in the dirtiest fights, where anything goes and nothing is out of bounds.

There's a range of fighting disciplines, from street brawling to wresting and martial arts, and a fat sack of brutal weapons to swing at your opponent's dome. Players can also slam each other into walls, cars, fences and other environmental objects, and if you step too close to the crowd they might fancy cracking you one on the back of the skull or getting you in a vice grip while someone else smacks the wax from your ears.
