Description of Boxing Fighting Def Jam NY
However, the game uses many of the same situations and
characters from Fight for NY, which is the third game in the
The game’s “Boxing Fighting Def Jam NY” story is a prequel to
the main events.
The player is still a nameless up-and-coming young street
fighter brought into the world of underground street fighting
after rescuing one of the game’s personalities from trouble
with the police.
However, instead of D-Mob being freed from police custody, like
in Fight for NY, it is tattoo artist Manny who is saved from
corrupt police officers.
Manny takes the player to gang leader O.G., who becomes his
“mentor”, who instructs him in how to fight to gain control of
(take over) the five boroughs of New York City.
Eventually, O.G. is murdered by Crow, leaving D-Mob to step in
and use the player as his number one fighter.
Ultimately, it is revealed that D-Mob was using the player to
take over the five boroughs, controlling New York City’s
and that he was going to leave the player to take the fall,
leading the police to his exact whereabouts.
After defeating D-Mob in the story’s final battle, a one-on-one
fight at the 125th Street Subway Station,
the player decides to leave the underground fight scene for
It is safe to say that, since this is a prequel story, D-Mob
recovers from the fight and, with nobody in New York to stop
builds his empire that is seen in Vendetta.
Character creation is still the same as of Def Jam: Fight NY:
Just like in the original, only male characters can be created.
You still create your character using the same type of police
A new addition is choosing your character’s home town from one
of the five boroughs of New York City.
From there, the game flows similarly to Fight for NY, featuring
many of the same fighting arenas and shops with which to
upgrade your character’s clothing, jewelry, hair, and fighting
The story is no longer told through fully voiced cutscenes.
For The Takeover, the story progresses through text and
messages received on your character’s Sidekick.
Also, since the game uses many of the graphical assets seen in
2004’s Fight for NY,
it does not reflect physical changes seen in some of the
celebrities featured in the game.
For example, Busta Rhymes, in the role of Magic, still has his
dreadlock hairstyle, which he cut in late 2005.
Also, Ludacris still has his cornrow hairstyle, which he would
cut in the summer of 2006.
