Last year, I received the original DJ Hero turntable for Christmas, and the game hooked me instantly. After only a couple weeks, I was already clamoring for a sequel. Thankfully, it came this year, and it’s just as good…but it didn’t quite meet my expectations.
The additions they’ve made in this game, including the new/improved Empire (career) mode are welcome. The mixes are all top-notch, including everything from hip-hop to trance, dance, rock, disco, new wave, etc. There’s plenty here for everyone, and it’s the perfect party game, particularly now that you can have someone join in on the mic and another turntable. I opted to buy the turntable bundle, particularly because it was actually cheaper than the standalone game. I’d suggest that buyers try and find this turntable bundle discounted, even if they weren’t considering another turntable, because it seems to be quite cheap at a lot of retailers.
Because of the excellent mixes, I’d go as far to say that this is the #1 music game for parties, even if there’s only one person playing. The music will get everyone feeling good. However, one disappointment is that this game does not include the DJ/guitar mode that the first DJ Hero had. Although there’s not a great selection of mixes that would include guitar parts, it was still a fun addition and a good way to get people in who are not familiar with the turntable yet. Instead of a guitar, another player can join in on the mic…which is okay, but the mixes are not always conducive to being sung. It’s a decent way to get someone else to join in, but the guitar mode was better.

While I do like the music/mixes in this newest installment of DJ Hero; good variety, it still came to same ol’ crappy, cheap turntable. I’m a little disappointed that the quality of the peripheral is well.. just cheap. The cover for the remote on mine keeps falling off and at one point one of remotes got stuck. I think I got a lemon. I would have better off keeping the original turntable I had from the first game because while it was also cheap I didn’t have as many issues with it. Speaking off the first game, what happened to being able to use the guitar in DJ2? Maybe it wasn’t popular but I liked it, it added some variety and was kinda fun. I was dissapointed in not seeing that. In additon to the above grips I have had an issue with the game play itself. Perhaps I’m out of practice but I had some issues with responsiveness. Now for the good- I do like that they added lyrics so that if you don’t have two turntables someone else can play with you if you have microphone. Both my Rock Band and EA mics work so no problems there. The addition of a “career” mode is interesting as well but was it really necessary? Honestly, though I have barely played this since I’ve had it because I don’t enjoy the actual game play. The graphics are fine, sound is fine but too have had calibration woes, couple this with it not picking up my moves just takes away from the fun. Overall, I would give this game a “just okay”. Maybe it will be more fun during a party.

Got this for my kids as a Christmas present and have really enjoyed all the fun we have had playing this game. Plus the price on Amazon being $30 cheaper than retail stores mad it that much better. Definitely worth getting.
