Eurogamer Expo 2010 – Def Jam Rapstar Videos

Def Jam Rapstar hadn’t even been on my radar as a game to even rent, let along buy, but that’s all changed now.

I wasn’t expecting it but this was one my fave game of the expo. It was just so much damn fun and there was alway a willing stream of gamers willing to step up and give it a go. No one there was laughing at other people’s expense it was all about just having a laugh and I thought it worked to brilliant effect. I could definitely see me with a few mates and a few beers spending an evening on two on this game.

I had a brief chat to the DJ/hype man/PR guy who told me that one of the cool things about the game was that you could use pretty much any USB or wireless mic with the game which considering these days most of us have at least one mic already in the house should mean we will have to fork out too much on the day of release.

I can’t tell you how much fun this game was so instead I’ll let these two videos do the talking for me. Below the videos I’ve stuck the game’s track list.
