    |1.About|
    |_______|
    
    This is a Unlock Rewards guide for the game Def Jam Fight for NY. Within this 
    guide, you will learn what Unlock Rewards is, how to use it, and what you can 
    get from it.
    
    The main reason for this guide is to show you the Unlock Reward item prices, 
    and alternative ways to unlocking them.
    
    |_________________________|
    |2. What is Unlock Rewards|
    |_________________________|
    
    Unlock Rewards is a mode within the game Def Jam Fight for NY. In this mode, 
    you will be able to use reward points to 
    buy characters and venues. 
    
    Another way of unlocking some of these characters is to beat them in story 
    mode. But EA realized that some people don't have the patient for story mode, 
    so they included an Unlock Rewards mode.
    
    To Access to Unlock Rewards mode, go to the main menu. Highlight "Unlock 
    Rewards" (It's beside Battle mode and On top of Extras) and press (X if you are 
    playing on the Playstation 2 or A if you are playing on the Nintendo Gamecube 
    or Microsoft Xbox). From here, you will be taken to a menu where you can pick 
    what you want to buy. You can choose either characters (fighters) or venues
    (levels and match types). Once you've chosen what type of item you want to buy,
    you'll be taken to a list of characters or venues. To actual buy these though,
    you must have a certain amount of reward points.
    
    |_________________________|
    |3. What are Reward Points|
    |_________________________|
    
    Reward Points is basically the game's currency (besides money which you use in 
    story mode). You can obtain reward points by playing battle mode matches. 
    Certain matches give you a set amount of reward points. In no way are reward 
    points given to you based on your performance.
    
    The following matches will give you the following number of reward points.
    
    |_________________|________________|
    |Match Type       |Reward Points   |
    |_________________|________________|
    |One on One       |5 Reward points |
    |Team Match       |10 Reward points|
    |Free for All     |15 Reward points|
    |Window Match*    |5 Reward points |
    |Subway Match*    |5 Reward points |
    |Demolition Match*|5 Reward points |
    |Inferno Match*   |5 Reward points |
    |Cage Match*      |5 Reward points |
    |Ring Out Match*  |5 Reward points |
    |_________________|________________|
    *= Unlockable match types
    
    Once you've played enough matches, and made enough reward points, you can 
    return to the main menu and choose unlock rewards. Pick the item category and 
    spend your heard earned reward points on characters or venues.
    
    |_____________________________|
    |4. Unlock Rewards: Characters|
    |_____________________________|
    
    .But before you can buy characters, you need to know if you have enough reward 
    points. Characters cost from about 25 reward points to 250 reward points. Once 
    you've earned enough reward points for a character, that character will become 
    buyable.
    
    For example, if you have 25 reward points, all characters that cost 25 reward 
    points will become buyable, the rest will stay dark.
    
    Say you want to unlock a certain character, but you don't know how many reward 
    points it costs. Well, the following list will show you how much each character 
    costs plus any alternative ways to unlocking them.
