Ok as I am more into rock and band music I never realy got the DJ Hero, in real life to me whats the skill in playing other peoples songs.
I do like some dance music tho more into tecno and hard house myself so was simply expecting this to be a bit of a novalty.
Well its really challenging and works really well thay have been clever and concentrated more on the game than simply the music it plays like a dream and the improvised scratches etc make you feel your evolving the songs yourself.
Considering I only got the game as a gamble as it was so cheap I advise everyone to check it out its wu wee wu weee war wick ka ka kid

  wicked tunes!!

Being a former DJ, this game appealed before I even opened the box.

I was lucky enough to get the first and second game plus the turntable for less than 60 quid.

I was a little skeptical at first but as I was doing the tutorial (and listening to fellow Kiwi Zane Lowe) I got to grips with the new controls and wow... I honestly was like OMG! Although I'm not one for trying to rap or sing whilst trying to scratch and crossfade, I find out that you can actually do this in this version!!! Whatever next?

After the tutorial, I did a few quick plays and the first thing that came to mind was how creative some of the songs and mixing them was?!? One of my favourites is Rihanna - Rude boy vs Iyaz - Replay... or Kanye - Love Lockdown vs Donna Summer - Bad Girls... You could easily release some of these mash ups!

Like any of the Hero games, the idea is to get as many perfect sections as possible and in this you can get to a EUPHORIA stage where you can earn more points.

This also has a rewind option which is best used on busy sections of songs to earn even more points and get more EUPHORIA sections, earning more points.

I'm currently doing a Empire which is where you bring a DJ from the start (Ibiza) and up through different cities and clubs across the globe. As you earn more "Stars" you unlock items such as appearance items like headphones or outfits, even your deck (CDJ or turntable). The only annoying thing for me is that I'm not huge on house music, I prefer the RnB/Hip Hop mixes so it's just baring with music you may not like (even though the house songs are normally easier to perfect). As you work through the cities though, you get to battle real life DJ's such as RZA and David Guetta - but dont think you're the man if you beat one of them (because it's just a game).

Online play, you can battle other players across the world in different modes; whether its a single track or a mixture of up to 5 (i think). Once you agree on a song/s, you play each other and the highest number of perfect sections, obviously, wins. Please note: you can battle anyone of any skill level. The higher their level, the more points they potentially earn and, well, you have your ass handed to you.

To me, it is the game I am addicted to at the moment, although the turntable and crossfader can be a little loud; so trying to play when the wife is sleeping can go against you sometimes (trust me).

Great game! Much improved from the first game.

  Wicked game a must buy for any music lover

If you love the first game then you will love dj hero 2, there are some amazing mixes on this game I would say they are better than the first game and they were pretty good, another thing that this game has unlike the first is a career mode you start off as a basic character then you build your character up as you progress unlocking mixes clothes decks ect ect, I haven't been able to put this turntable down
