Most notable appearances that are in the game are Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, spin offDMX and many more acts.

Gamers could do exhibition matches or better play the story mode in hopes to be the best fighter in New York.
2) 50 Cent : Bulletproof
This game is semi-biographical. Revolves around 50 Cent’s descend into committing crimes. The story line is freaking amazing and is definitely a thrilling story.
