Great song selection ; Mixes go well together ; Improved controls ; Better multiplayer options ; Nice presentation ; Freestyle is amazing

Microphone use is lackluster ; No big visual upgrade ; No importing songs from the first game

Last year we were introduced to DJ Hero. It was a refreshing entry to the rhythm-action music games. The style and musical presentation was a real stand out. Now we have the second installment of the series and let me just say beforehand, it has taken...

With a great set of mixes, a better line-up of artists and DJs, and with its progressive Empire career mode, there is enough here to keep your body swaying and your toes tapping. If you already have a set of decks from the first game and you are...

A more consistant line-up of mixes; More modes, such as Empire career mode; Has Deadmau5 in it, enough said

Some random mixes still appear in this sequel; Some unnecessary game elements; Still waiting for a pro deck version

In the primitive yesteryear of 2009, humble developer FreeStyleGames went beyond downloadable content for Guitar Hero and set to work on their brainchild:?DJ Hero was born. ?It was a ton of fun to play between the soundtrack, innovative peripheral, and...

I've never had the desire to master two turntables and a microphone, but in the proper hands, a real instrument can be created. Mixing together different musical bits into something new takes a different type of creativity than strictly writing a song....

Great additions and tweaks to the turntable gameplay ; Great club atmosphere with the songs ; Fun to play

Why can't I use my Xbox 360 Avatar in Empire Mode ; Need to be able to use two turntables in single player (perhaps in Pro Mode) ; Vocals don't add anything (I think I preferred the guitar play in the original game)

It's a solid addition to the growing music genre.

Following Activision's recent lacklustre Guitar Hero they bring us DJ Hero 2, a follow-up to last year's impressive but pricy game for wannabe DJ's.

The original DJ Hero had a lot going for it, and it mostly succeeded at bringing a new kind of music game to the market. It set itself apart, despite a few flaws, and managed to bring some life back into the music game genre. DJ Hero 2 isn't quite the...

Varied list of catchy mixes; small, but significant gameplay refinements; free style sections add a lot of depth; completely new and addictive multiplayer; basic gameplay is still a blast

Opponent A.I. during DJ battles tends to be a bit cheap; "singing" is not the least bit enjoyable

Expanded single-player and multiplayer suites headline Activision and FreeStyleGames' second foray into the spin-savvy mash-up scene.

Stellar soundtrack; expanded multiplayer and single-player modes

Still a steep learning curve; turntable controller is still difficult to use at times

Where it's at.

Fantastic music, freestyle sections give control over mix, great battle modes, cleaner interface

Some menu clunkiness, no practice mode, singing a mix has limited appeal

Technically sound, but not a must have

Improved aesthetics and added creative options make the game an improvement over its predecessor

Feels all too familiar

From a technical standpoint, DJ Hero 2 runs and looks better than its predecessor. The game has alleviated most of the small frame rate issues that would sometimes plague DJ Hero. DJ Hero 2 also looks more impressive. The animations look less stiff,...

There is no doubt that the plastic music game genre has seen better days. What was for a few years managed to be one of the pinnacle genres of the

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...
