DJ Hero (PlayStation 3)


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. Yet, as is also the case...

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 2


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...

DJ Hero 2 improves upon its predecessor in every way. The Empire mode adds depth to the single player experience; freestyle scratching, sampling and crossfading adds an empowering new layer to gameplay; and the inclusion of Party Play and the DJ Battle...

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...

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...

It's Like?

I haven't had this much fun with a rhythm game in awhile. DJ Hero doesn't stray too far from the formula that made Guitar Hero and Rock Band into household names, but it has a fresh quality about it that the former titles expended long ago. It's the...
