IGN Cube:
"When it comes to two-player action, you'll be hard-pressed to find a smoother, slicker slobber knocker than this wrestler. It's the game that makes The Rock look like a pebble and is a must-buy for all fans of the genre. And, as you can see by the score, it's the highest rated wrestling game on the site."

"Def Jam: Vendetta sounds less like a good idea for a game and more like a license to print money, but it's actually done pretty well. The characters look like they should, even down to their outfits, and the gameplay is what you'd expect from a good brawler. It's also surprisingly challenging..."


"As a wrestling game, Def Jam Vendetta manages to succeed on most every level, providing surprisingly deep gameplay, quality graphics and sound, and a distinctive atmosphere. Vendetta is truly a great wrestling game that any fan of the genre should try."
