Each of the five fighting styles has its Specific advantages. You get to pick one right off the bat. Hit Stapleton Athletics (p. 8) to add other Styles and moves to your repertoire. Here’s a description of each type of fighter.

Street Fighters

They might not be the Most disciplined fighters, but with their powerful punches and kicks, street fighters can be some of the most dangerous, Their Haymaker is the most destructive attack in the Circuit.


The name says it all. Getting kicked by a kickboxer is like getting smacked with an aluminum bat. In close, they use their deadly clinch Maneuvers to grab opponents and unleash a flurry of elbow, fist, knee, and leg strikes,

Martial Arts

What these agile fighters lack in Power, they make up for with insane quickness. They are masters of the environment and can use anything around them like walls, posts, fences, and speakers to let loose

an unpredictable knockout blow.


A combination of showmanship wrestling and technical grappling, these powerful fighters use their incredible upper body strength to bring the pain with throws and body slams. Even though they are kind of slow and Susceptible to quick Strikes, they are extremely deadly in tight situations, and their grappling abilities are the most lethal in the game.

a Submissions Pe | These guys wear down Specific body parts to leave opponents open ri to painful submission attacks. Although not the fastest or most agile fighters, they use power and an arsenal of joint attacks, locks, and holds to make their Opponents scream for their mommies.


Create a fighter and take him to the top in Story mode, or get right into the action with up to four players in one of the Battle modes.

Story Mode

Ready to see if you have what it takes to survive the underground hip hop fight circuit? Remember, trust no one and stay true to what matters: money, power, and respect. The story starts when you bust D-Mob out of police custody.


This is where you pick your character for the story. You can either choose a fighter from the lineup or use the Five-0’s sketch artist to create a brawler exactly how you want him to be. Your first fighting style is free—you have to work for the rest.


Before you can hang with D-Mob and his crew, you have to prove your skills by whipping up on one of the fighters in their arsenal—House. Follow the on-screen instructions to show you’ve got what it takes to represent.


} MAP ~ Use the map to get where you nee! to go—like Stingray’s Barbershop,

Stapleton Athletics, an Steetwear. You'll also use the fight venues.

d Syndicate Urban the map to visit


Increase your skills and learn new fighting styles and moves in the gym. Your trainer, Henry Rollins, is on hand to teach you all you need to know to stay ahead of all the other fighters. It costs serious development points to increase your skills or to purchase another fighting style, so use them wisely. All of your attributes except charisma can be upgraded at Stapleton Athletics.


The fastest way to start looking like somebody important is to visit the jeweler to the stars, Jacob. For the right price, he'll hook you up with the perfect piece of jewelry to let everyone know that you're no chump. When you're in the market for status, remember that visiting Jacob is the best way to increase your charisma.

Ba Roursncsuy i BARBER SHOP Visit the barbershop and let Stingray switch up your look. From the color and style of your do to the

hair on your face, Stingray is a master of style. You have to visit the barbershop every time you want to change your hairstyle.


The only thing as important as how you fight is how you look. Visit this shop often to keep up on the latest urban fashions and to pimp yourself out with hot new gear.


What's a fighter without ink? As you progress through the story, you'll unlock a variety of styles and patterns of tattoos that will go a long way in helping you win over the crowds.

Rewards points are accumulated each time you win a battle. Use these points to unlock characters and venues in the Unlock Rewards section of the Main menu.


Here are some hints for each fighting style that will help you to become an unstoppable pain-generating machine.

Martial Arts: Use your speed to attack quickly. Build momentum by using combos and then hit your opponent with a Blazin’ move. Use objects in the environment to attack your opponent and knock him out.

Street Fighting: Street fighters are built for offense, so attack aggressively and go for the early win. When an opportunity presents itself, use the Haymaker to go for the knuckout.

Wrestling: When using a wrestler you want to defend against punches and kicks, and go for grapple attacks. Close the distance and make your opponent block by throwing strikes, then go for the grapple. The key to victory for wrestlers is to use their grapple attacks; specifically their hard grapple attack.

Kickboxing: Like the name suggests, the way to win with a kickboxer is to use powerful kicks. Wear your opponent down with hard kicks and work your way in for a clinch move. Once in the clinch, punish your opponent with any combination of strikes you can think of.

Submissions: The key to victory for submissions fighters is to pick a body part on your Opponent and continually attack it. Once it is weak enough, go for the tap out and make your opponent submit.


You have a long road ahead of you. Don’t forget to save your progress. A memory card (8MB) (for PlayStation®2) is required to save a User ID and an Options file.

e After every match, your progress is saved to your memory card if you have Autosave enabled. You can turn Autosave ON/OFF in Options.

e You can save up to eight User IDs to a memory card. You can also copy User IDs from a memory card and save them to another memory card via the Options menu.

The game’s Autoload feature automatically loads your saved information upon boot up. If you have memory cards connected to more than one MEMORY CARD slot, Autoload loads the information from the memory card in the lowest MEMORY CARD slot. There are two

~ types of saved files in the game:

OPTIONS FILE Contains all global settings and rewards, including unlocked venues, fighters, songs, and reward points. * USER ID FILE Contains all personal user information, including record, Story mode progress, created fighter, unlocked/owned items, and trophies.

e When you have Autosave disabled, make sure you load your Options file from the Main menu, or you run the risk of overwriting your previously saved information.
