Post Revolution: DJ Hero

Posted on Friday, October 8 @ 12:54:00 Eastern by
Sorry for Post Revolution's tardiness this week, but that's part of the fun here. I'm late to the party for DJ Hero this week, but it seems I might not go to DJ Hero 2's party at all.

I was in Gamestop the other day, (I know, Boooo, Hisssss), and they managed to sign me up for one of those rewards points cards. So I picked up The Simpsons Game and Civilization Revolution (the latter entirely based on Duke's total playtime). Buying two used games netted me one for free, so I decided I'd take the plunge and buy DJ Hero.

I've looked at it for a while, but I never thought about buying it seriously unless I could get a deal on it. I know see why I didn't mind waiting.

The music gaming genre has been and will always be centered around enjoying the music you're interacting with. The awkwardness of reviewing a game like Green Day: Rock Band was knowing full well that my comments are not going to affect whether or not someone is going to buy the game. You either like Green Day or you don't.

Rock and Roll is less polarizing, in my experience, than Rap and Electronic music. Mixing those two genres together in DJ Hero can cause your ears to throw up.

There's a lot to like about DJ Hero, including the controls, the basic gameplay, and Daft Punk, but when it comes down to it, I can't stand some of those songs. I'll keep playing DJ Hero, but I won't be picking up DJ Hero 2 before listening to all the mixes on Youtube.
