DJ Hero for Wii Review

DJ Hero, sure to be the hit video game of the season, rolls onto the shelves this week.  Our pre-order copy arrived last night.  Immediately obvious is how small the box is.  For some reason I had invisioned a Rock Band drum set style set up complete with legs.  Instead DJ Hero consists of a three feet by one feet plastic box.  Following the instructions I insert the Wii remote into the designated area.  It doesn’t fit.  Apparently at some point the mold shrunk and my remotes cord will not hide away within the device.  I have to leave off the cover to make it work which affects little but the aethetics.

On startup the game is easy to navigate.  The tutorial is short yet gives an excellent overview of how the game works.  Within 10 minutes I’m hitting every beat on the easy setting (one above beginner).  It took only half an hour to unlock the special Jay Z mix.

Over all the appearance and workings of the game are excellent.  There is a lot more going on with the turntable to master than on guitar hero.  Yet it’s not as difficult as the drums on Rock Band.

Another surprise was that the Guitar Hero guitar is able to be used with the turntable in the game which is very cool.

All in all we give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

  1. Wow! What a great blog. I don’t have time to read everything here right now, I found this site when looking for something else on Bing, but I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will visit again soon to see the latest articles. My wife and son and I really enjoy playing Wii games together. We have so much fun when we are playing them. It’s really a great way to spend some quality family time. And I really enjoy using on the Wii Fit. That yoga module is so relaxing while at the same giving a nice yoga-based workout. I have a small web site about the Wii. Please check out my site at when you have time and please let me know how you like it. Thanks again for this site – it is really great. Have a really good weekend, and thank you again for a really informative blog!
