Def Jam Fight for NY: The Modes
Story Mode:
It all begins with a mysterious suspect breaking D-Mob out of prison. Once freed, D-Mob discovers that the underground fight circuit that he once made has been taken over by a new boos named Crow(Played by Snoop Dogg). As the mysterious suspect, you join D-Mob's crew, and journey into the underground fighting world, where a violent turf war for the underground fight world is just beginning.
Being three times the length of the original Def Jam Vendetta and contain over 6 times more of story content, with over 90 matches and 20 minutes of cinematics, Fight for NY's story mode will surpass the one of the orignal Vendetta, and be a huge part of Fight for NY.
The story mode will be different than the one found in Vendetta. Instead of being told who and where to fight next, you get to choose which venue you want to fight at, and who in that venue you want to Fight. Usually, when you start off story mode, there may be one or two venues you can travel too, but as you beat a number of people in a venue, it will open up another venue for you to fight it.
But don't think you can just go to venues, there are also other places you can go too. You can head to the gym, and learn new fighting moves and styles from Gym trainer Henry Rollings, travel to Jacob and Jeweler's place to buy his latest jewelry, hit up Manny's Tattoo parlour to get a tattoo for your character, or even get a haircut from Stingray the Barber.
You clothes will also affect the story mode. As you fight, your clothes will give you some added charisma. Although, if you continue to use those clothes, your that extra charisma will drop. To maintain your bonus charisma, you will have to keep on changing your clothes to relate with the newest clothes out there. As you play story mode, these clothes do become more expensive.
As you play through story mode, you will earn money and development points. Money can be used to dress up your character, by getting hair cuts, buying clothes, getting tattoos, and buying some jewelry. Development points can be used to buy new moves and blazin' moves for your character.
The fun isn't over once you have complete story mode. Once story mode has been completed, bonus matches will open up for you to play, and completing these will give you a lot of money.
Created characters can only be used to to play story mode. According to Josh Holmes, it should take a person atleast 15 to 20 hours to complete story mode. Also, each game system's game will have different cut scenes from one another.

The create-a-fighter is a very unique mode found in Def Jam Fight for NY. A mode that over 99% of people wanted in the first game.

The Create-a-fighter may not be as flexible as the ones found in The tiger woods or Smackdown games(You cannot make wacky types of characters) but you can make characters that fit the game's style, plus they'll look as good as any of the characters found in the game.

To create a character, you will be taken to a sketch artist early in the game. By answering the sketch artist's questions, you can come in with your character. But the creating isn't done here. As you progress through story mode, you will unlock different things for you character, so you'll be able to constantly update his appearance.

Items for you character include: hoodies, du-rags, bandanas, hats, sunglasses, watches, ear rings, rings, chains, bracelets, shirts, shoes, pants, shorts, jackets, and T-shirts. Although, these will be licensed items from: Def Jam University, Jordan, Ekco, Enyce, Joker, Phat Farm, Rocawear, Sean Jean, Zoo York, Reebok, Jacob & Co, and Fila.

Also, there are many different kinds of head wear you can use, such as: doo rags, headbands, bandanas, visers, baseball hats, berets, and fedoras. Like clothes, hats can be worn many different ways, for example you can wear a visor at the front, the side, the back, upside down, etc.

Also, clothing items can be used different ways. For example, you can choose from awide variety of different kinds of pants. Once you've chosen, you can then choose the color of the pants, then you can decide how your characters wear these pants. For example they can wear them with their underwear showing, without their underwear showing, one or both pant legs rolled up, etc. With that, there will be over 1000 items for your created character(3000 if you include the different ways you can use an item).

Other than the clothes and accessories your character can wear, you can also update their Hair style. You can choose from many different hairstyles which include afros and dred locks, or you can be bald. You can also choose the color of these hair styles from colors such as Black, Blue or Red. Although, for facial hair, colors like red and blue cannot be used.

You can also give your character tattoos. Some tattoo styles include: tribal, celtic, jailhouse, japanese, polynesian, and religious. Tattoos can be placed on a variety of body parts including: R/L bicep, R/L forearm, Chest, Back, R/L leg, Neck & Face. You may replace a tattoo at anytime, but you must first remove the original tattoo you want to replace(Which is around $300)

But all these things don't come free. You will have to use money earned from fights to purchase them. Also, you'll need to play around story mode for additional items to be unlocked.

But don't just think you can edit a characters appearance. You can also edit their move list. You first pick a main fighting style, and build your move list from the moves given. But as you progress through story mode, you can add 2 addtional fighting styles, giving you a wide variety of moves you can give your character. You can also assign your character up to four different blazin'(special) moves.

You build up a number of skills in the Gym for your character, including Upper Power, Lower Power, Speed, Toughness and Health. You also have a Charisma rating which affects your ability to earn momentum, but this cannot be directly affected. In addition, there are bonuses that form part of the overall maximum value for each of the skills. These are earned by achieving milestones and learning new styles. There are five bonuses for each skill, and each bonus is worth 3% of the overall maximum for that skill. It's not possible to max out all of your skills for this reason.
