DJ Hero (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
8 January 2010
  • Excerpt: With the runaway success of Activision’s Guitar Hero franchise, and murmurs over the years of the ‘Hero’ franchise spreading out to other instruments (above and beyond the ‘standard’ guitar, drum and microphone combination), enthusiast press bloggers and industry commentators soon took up the call...

DJ Hero

Gamer vision
20 November 2009
  • Excerpt: It wasn’t until the phenomenon that was the very first Guitar Hero that music games really became one of the driving forces of the gaming industry. The advent of Rock Band fleshed the genre out a bit more, adding vocals and drums, but there hasn’t been much to change the game since then. Until now.

  • Summary: Let’s face it; the rhythm genre hasn’t seen a whole lot of innovation in the last couple years. DJ Hero may not be perfect and it certainly has a high cover charge, but it has the most fresh approach to the genre seen in a long time.

  • Conclusion: DJ Hero is the ace up Activision's sleeve, simultaneously reinvigorating their music game slate while opening up a whole new genre to the mix (pardon the pun). And unlike the assembly line feeling of the Guitar Hero sequels, DJ Hero really does give a fresh spin (I can't help it with the puns!

This new frontier in rhythm gaming is electrifyingly fun, but the cover charge is steep.

  • Summary: As is the case with almost every rhythm game out there, playing DJ Hero will not prepare you to be an actual DJ. The songs are premixed, the sound effects are preloaded, and the wheel (just one) of steel is actually plastic.
  • Pros: Diverse, entertaining tracklist, Well-crafted turntable peripheral, Difficulty levels range from very welcoming to very challenging, Captures the thrill of creating a hot mix
  • Cons: Costs as much as two full-price games, Crossfader tab can be tricky, Doesn't embrace creativity of actual mixing

DJ Hero (PS3)

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: Though it can be difficult to truly master the skills of turntablism, once you get the hang of it, DJ Hero can be addictive.
  • Pros: Simple interface. Diverse song catalog. Effectively teaches the basics of DJing.
  • Cons: Multitasking can be difficult. No break between songs. Watch our DJ Hero video review!

DJ Hero Review (PS3)

Yet Another Review Site
23 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Wikkety-wikkety-wah-wah, yo DJ, pump this par-taaayyy! With the current offers available for DJ Hero on the web (I got a copy of the Renegade version for �40!), I decided to take the plunge and see what the latest Activision “Hero” title had to offer.
  • Pros: Nice new playing style, good tracklist overall, visually entertaining, fun
  • Cons: Some tracks overused, more obscure music than well known, can get a bit old unless played on the higher settings

DJ Hero review

Gameplanet
10 January 2010
  • Excerpt: You might think there's too many music titles out there to choose from, but Activision have now provided you with a reason to take another look. DJ Hero needs to be played before you can pass any judgement, as even those with no interest in DJ music will find it tremendously entertaining.
  • Pros: A really polished game and an ingenious piece of hardware. Fantastic value for money, especially with the allowance for the guitar peripheral.
  • Cons: Doubts about the endurance of the cross-fader switch. Being easy to learn, but difficult to master could put the impatient gamer off.
