DJ Hero

My first impression of Activision’s DJ Hero was that they were selling out the Guitar Hero series on a whole new level. Not that Guitar Hero: Metallica wasn’t a big enough sell out as it was.

However, I found that DJ Hero is not bad. Now if you are in any bit familiar with the Guitar Hero, rhythm games, then DJ Hero is just about that. You use the turntable controller with 3 buttons. The long notes have been replaced with scratching where you hold a button done and spin the disc. The games has a a massive difficulty curve where the lower difficulties are simple while the upper levels are extream. The game features more than 80 remixes of two different songs from a selection of over 100 different songs across numerous genres. The game features both a single player Career mode and cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes. The game also features a mode for selected songs for a DJ player to play alongside another player using a Guitar Hero guitar controller.

There are several artists that not only contributed original songs, but also lent their images as playable characters, including DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Gradmaster Flash, and Daft Punk. Like I said before, there is an amazing selection of songs and graphics are imprssive. Take the time to check this game out, cause if your a fan of Guitar Hero then you’ll at least enjoy DJ Hero.
