Def Jam: Global Tour is the 5th Game in the Def Jam video game series, and the 4th game in the Def Jam fighting game series, right after the mixed recieved Def Jam: Icon. It not only features rappers and Hip-Hop artists not only from the Def Jam label, but also other various Hip-Hop levels. The game is a back to basics approach that takes elements from each entry of the series. The cover art features member of Interscope Records, Shady Records, and Aftermath Entertainment, Eminem.


The Gameplay of Def Jam: World War takes various elements from the previous 3 Def Jam games. The fighting system is very similar to that of Def Jam: Fight For NY, with more grappling/wrestling elements just like Vendetta. The Fighting styles from Fight For NY are back, but they have more unique elements added to them compared to before. Characters can strike, grapple, and reverse attacks, and also interact with the stage by being able to use weapons and the enviornment.

The Blazin' Moves return to the series after being absent from Icon. Like Vendetta, each character has two Blazin' Moves. However, instead of one being from the front and one from the back, the two Blazin' Moves have levels, Each character has both a Normal Blazin' Move (Which is weaker but can be done easier), and a Final Blazin' Move that can KO an opponent if their health is in the danger zone.

The music changing mechanic from Icon is included in the game, but only under "Hype Rules" Mode, where you can gain a "Hype" advantage from the crowd if you play your song while landing combos and Blazin' Moves.
