Review: DJ Hero 2 (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
7 December 2010
  • Summary: If you need something new to do with those turntable controllers, DJ Hero 2 certainly won’t disappoint. FreeStyleGames didn’t rock the boat with the franchise, so everything there was to like about the first installment comes back with a fresh coat of paint. The biggest disappointment in the title is that some of the marquee features, such as the Empire Mode and vocals gameplay, just do not measure up, but if you’re here to keep spinning, scratching, tapping and fading,...

DJ Hero 2 Review

DailyGame
8 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I absolutely adored DJ Hero when it came out last year, it was a change to the storied ‘Hero’ franchise that was a required breath of fresh air. After countless iterations and critical missteps in the guitar and band based games, it was refreshing to see Activision create something so familiar, but also outrageously new and intriguing.

  • Excerpt: DJ Hero 2 successfully improves on the original DJ Hero in a number of ways. First and foremost is gameplay. There are minor additions, like button holds for elongated track effects, but the most significant enhancement is the new freestyle sections that allow virtual DJs to make the music their own.

Game Over Online
8 November 2010
  • Excerpt: While it might not have achieved the commercial success Activision was hoping for when it was released last year, DJ Hero did manage to breathe new life into a music rhythm genre that was beginning to choke on a growing number of plastic guitars. For that reason, rightfully so, Activision didn’t give up on its talented rookie and now developer FreeStyleGames returns to the stage looking to turn up the party with DJ Hero 2.

  • Excerpt: When DJ Hero first arrived on the scene last year, many praised the game for jolting a breath of fresh air into the music gaming genre which has significantly tailed off over the past few years. DJ Hero featured a terrific soundtrack, the turntable peripheral was easy to use and the overall gameplay was enjoyable. You truly felt like a nightclub DJ when playing the game.

  • Conclusion: DJ Hero 2 is a nice step forward for the series, but it’s not a giant leap by any stretch. The first big hurdle has been met with a much deeper music lineup and the likelihood of far more DLC on the horizon is a big win.  What I was hoping for in this game and will continue to hope for in future games is that they continue to strive to make you feel like a DJ and not just someone hitting random buttons, they are getting closer to that, but just not there yet.
