Def Jam Rapstar

Def Jam Rapstar is a rap-themed karaoke game, in which players move through various stages and unlock new songs by performing well. The game includes 45 tracks by various artists, with more for download as DLC, and many of which include their original music videos. While different regions contain different tracks, all of which are radio versions that don't include cursing. The game also includes online multiplayer, which was shut down in October 2011.

Def Jam Rapstar received positive reviews, with an average score of 75% for its overall fun and dedication to rap fans.

A year after its release, Def Jam Rapstar developer 4mm Games and distributor Terminal Reality were sued for failing to acquire musical rights to songs featured in the game. Due to complications with the lawsuit, the servers were shut down in October 2011. The game as 7 online trophies, which can no longer be unlocked, thereby making the Platinum for this game Not Obtainable.

As we stated before, the 7 online trophies are no longer obtainable as of October 2011. However, there are still 43 possible offline trophies you can collect.

So to begin, you'll want to first play through and complete Career mode. Unless you're failing miserably, we strongly recommend playing through on hard, in order to unlock most of the trophies and save you some time.

Once that's finished, you can start mopping-up the remaining offline trophies. This may include getting an Off the Chain (5-Mic) on every song for the Microphone Friend! trophy, playing 300 performances for the Livin' Your Life trophy, and getting On Point for 50 performances on Hard for the Unstoppable trophy, as well as a few others.

Also, there are a few trophies which require a second microphone, such as Playa President and Close Call.

Unfortunately, this is were the roadmap ends, since the remaining online trophies cannot be unlocked due to the servers being shut down.
