DJ Hero 2 (PS3)

ccgr.org
24 February 2011
  • Excerpt: I thoroughly enjoyed DJ Hero and I was saddened to hear that the game didn’t sell as well as they hoped it would. Thankfully, they released a sequel and listened to some of the criticisms from the gamers this time around. I’m also happy to get more use out of my plastic turntable (which is required for playing the title). If you missed out on the turntable from the last game, you can still buy DJ Hero 2 with or without it.
  • Pros: Slicker Interface; DJ Battles add a nice touch; more room for song personalization.
  • Cons: While the track list is decent I liked the DJ Hero set list better.

DJ Hero 2 Review

ME Gamers

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Developers have realized that music and rhythm games mean big business. There’s no great joy than listening to your favorite song while strumming away on a plastic guitar or finding your mojo on a set of colored drums. Or you may be gyrating in front of your TV to Lady Gaga – whatever your guilty pleasure, there is no denying that there is plenty of fun to be had with most games in this genre.

  • Summary: DJ Hero 2 adds a thick coat of polish to an already brilliant original, and as a result is the best music game on the market for those looking for something a little unique.
  • Pros: Creating unique tracks, Freestyle techniques add your flare, Great mix of music for those who like this style
  • Cons: The lack of character customization, The single-player mode is a little on the thin side, The music might not be everyone's cup of tea

  • Conclusion: For the asking price of $100, DJ Hero 2 gives you a lot of content for your money. The game has a number of modes for you to play through, including a substantial career mode where you’ll eventually go up against some of the world’s top DJs. If you want to play the game with friends there are several online modes for you to play, all of which work surprisingly well.

DJ Hero 2 Review

2 November 2010
  • Summary: While DJ Hero 2 still has the turntable and the intimidating notation, don't let that put you off. If you've always dreamed of being a superhero master of the wheels of steel, DJ Hero 2 is your dream realized.
  • Pros: While the addicting core gameplay is the same, everything else has gotten an impressive facelift, Freestyle sections add extra fun in both single player and multiplayer battles, Great track list and ability to play sets is amazing
  • Cons: The vocals are completely worthless, The fact that you can tie a computer in a DJ battle is completely baffling, You can lose an online battle, even if you hit 100% of the notes

Expert Review

Video Game talk
22 October 2010
  • Excerpt: was a huge surprise to me. Activision, infamous for running Guitar Hero into the ground (the latest entry in the long-in-the-tooth series made me want to chuck the disc out the window), actually managed to release a fun, innovative, and truly excellent music game. And now they up the ante with DJ Hero 2. Tossing in a second turntable and a vocal mode to replace the tacked-on guitar mode of the last game, DJ Hero 2 tops the original in every way.
