DJ Hero


A great addition to the rhythm game family. The music game genre isn't quite what it used to be. The barrage of plastic guitars and bulky drum kits is likely...

Great controller ; Outstanding tracks ; Simplistic design ; Challenging and addictive

Music certainly acquired taste ; DLC prices feel steep

DJ Hero for the PS3


DJ Hero is a new release from Activision who, in the past, created a successful fusion between the gaming world and the music industry with its Guitar Hero releases. While those games were a hit, it was time for some new blood, and to the rescue comes...

With the DJ Hero Renegade Edition you get the same basic features plus some extras. First, the turntable gets a makeover from its standard matte finish to a glossy black finish with gold accents in the Renegade version. You also get a carrying case for...

DJ Hero - PlayStation 3


Video Review: Don't Just Stand There, Bust A Groove.

If you’ve ever played a Hero game, you know that the main aspect of the game comes down to hitting the colored buttons in time with when their onscreen indicator reaches a particular point on the note highway. Here, not only will you have to hit the...

Think DJ Hero could teach you to really DJ? Maybe it will, if you can keep the beat. (PS3)

It’s one thing to offer unsure consumers a guitar to play. It took a few years for many of us to realize just how fun Guitar Hero was, and to come and appreciate it. DJ Hero embarks on that same quest, and we think it succeeds pretty well. Thankfully...

DJ Hero (Xbox 360) Review


Spinning and scratching comes to next generation consoles with DJ Hero on the Xbox 360. Featuring 93 mixes from 102 hits, the game packs one of the largest music game setlists to date.

Instead of going for score attack and paying attention to the notes in a Gorillaz mash up we found we were following the flow instead and pushing with the song. While we were not always on time we were moving on our way up from three stars to four...

DJ Hero


The Game: Well, wouldn't you know it? Turns out Activision isn't devoid of innovation after all. After developer Harmonix parted ways with the publishing company following the release of Guitar Hero II: Rock The 80's, Activision quickly took the Guitar...

DJ Hero


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

Diverse, entertaining tracklist ; Well-crafted turntable peripheral ; Difficulty levels range from very welcoming to very challenging ; Captures the thrill of creating a hot mix

Costs as much as two full-price games ; Crossfader tab can be tricky ; Doesn't embrace creativity of actual mixing

DJ Hero Review


�Last night a DJ killed my pride.�

Dozens of amazing mash-ups from incredibly talented DJs; a very cool peripheral; accessible to newcomers, yet extremely challenging; support for guitar on a few tracks

Crossfader already has me worried; no separate scores for difficulties; multiplayer merely exists

DJ Hero will only give you a glimpse into the realities of mixing and scratching, with some of the coolest mash-ups I�ve ever heard to entertain along the way. It probably won�t convert you unless you�re already into electronic music or hip-hop...

DJ Hero


Packaged in a box about half the size of Guitar Hero, DJ Hero comes with a turntable and mixer controller as two separate units. The mixer can be attached to the turntable on either side to accommodate lefty or righty spinners. It is built solidly –...

Solid, responsive and accommodating controller ; Great tunes that outshine all other music games ; Challenging on hard and expert level

Crossfade too hard to hit dead center ; Visuals are just OK ; Scoring could be more elaborate than stars

DJ Hero includes the option to play with a friend either on or offline as well as double up with a Guitar Hero guitar for a DJ jammer session. At the end of the day DJ Hero is all about you and your gear, riling up the crowd without missing your beats...
