Advantages: Good mixes, tracks up to date
Disadvantages: lacking any real depth to it
So far this DJ Hero seems to have some great reviews on it, Im afraid Im going to break the trend and say I don't think its worth all the hype.
My friend bought this game round my hosue so to be fair I do not own it myself, but have played a fair few hours on it. You start as obviously a DJ and have an option to be only one DJ until you unlock more characters. The lessons to learn are pretty simple and it talks/shows you through the steps. They are done pretty quickly and it doesn't take long to get into the real action.
When you start on the first level you have to earn points to unlock things which makes sense, its how most games are structured, with getting money or cash to unlock new levels or features. The Music is good, the remixes sound good, the tunes are up to date and they're mixed pretty well, Im surprised some of them haven't been released as singles.
What I am dissapointed with is the depth to the game, there is not much to do other than press buttons and spin the turntable to tracks, it all seems rather limited to make a game of it, also as far as I am aware, you can't choose your own tracks to mix together, that would be a massive upside to this game if you could, please someone correct me if Im wrong in this point.
I am not all that keen on this game to be 100% honest and after having played on my friends version, I will not be buying it.
Summary: Not my cup of joe
