  • Conclusion: DJ Hero is a quality game with a fantastic selection of music that’s a lot of fun to play. And while it’s not exactly reinventing the musical game, it’s a great addition to an already strong series.
  • Pros: The gameplay in DJ Hero is pretty much the same as Guitar Hero, but with scratching the deck replacing the whammy bar, and a crossfader adding an extra dimension. And, as with Guitar Hero, you can select whether you’re right or left handed so the controller responds. The deck feels solid and DJ Hero is an absolute cinch to pick up and get going, just like Guitar Hero. And just like Guitar Hero, you'll find yourself lost in the game in no time, and it is genuinely sati...
  • Cons: It’s expensive – you can get Guitar Hero for £20 less. And if you want a two-player game, it’s going to cost you about £200. And we can’t help but feel the timing is a little off: the whole ‘superstar DJ’ phenomenon was a good few years ago, so maybe it will only appeal to the hardcore who, chances are, will already have a set of turntables.

  • Summary: DJ Hero proves to be a solid music game that tries something new and mostly succeeds. Unfortunately the price tag and limited content may turn some gamers away, but if you can get past the steep learning curve you will find an enjoyable game waiting for you. Best of all, it feels completely different from all of Activision's previous "Hero" titles! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.

  • Summary: You mean we get to be a DJ AND a Hero? Sign us up!
  • Pros: Turntable controller is excellently designed; outstanding soundtrack that should please any music fan; fun DJ'ing mechanics; evolves the music genre in a unique way; easy to learn but nearly impossible to master; great presentation.
  • Cons: Can't fail out of a song; multiplayer is rather bland; rather high (but understandable) price point.

Review: DJ Hero

The Review Crew
6 March 2011
  • Summary: I was surprised at how much I enjoyed playing DJ Hero. After playing countless music games with guitars, microphones and drums, DJ Hero was a breath of fresh air. The ability to mix tracks with artists like Beck, Queen, Tears for Fears, Foo Fighters and Marvin Gaye is awesome and really makes you get into the music.
  • Pros: Awesome music mixes, Unique controller, Feels like you’re in control of the music
  • Cons: The Crossfader is too sensitive, 2 player mode seems tacked on

DJ Hero Review

AusGamers
6 November 2009
  • Conclusion: It's a bold move on Activision's part to dabble in this area, and to their credit, I actually think DJ Hero has done a pretty good job with a great set-list of pre-mixed tracks by some of the world's best DJs, it's just that it lacks in emergent gameplay; there's no ultimate sense of freedom thus culling any sense of organic creativity on the player's part.
