It would be almost impossible to release another guitar and band based game right now due to the saturation in the market right now and the fact that almost everyone already has their Rock Band or Guitar Hero. I don?t have many friends that don?"

Overall: For the past few years we have been bogged down the by the numerous music games whether they are guitar hero, rock band, DDR, or any other brand of music game. DJ hero is a new kind of music game in the sense of different music and different instrument. When you first such a game your first thought is probably is this really that much different? Or this a completely new inovation towards music gaming? Well DJ hero is indeed a little different, but the difference seem differs from players. For one the insturment is a lot different you aren't using a guitar (Even though you have the option to) or drums, or singing. This DJ pad has 3 buttons which like other music games you push when the note hits the right moment. Although in this game you are required to perform other tasks along with hitting the notes which creates a different variaty of things to do. The music selection is also extremely good I for one do not like rap or hip hop or the such, but I was still able to get into this kind of music as it combines two songs from varying catagories of music. The game is definitly a new take on the music industry, but some people may see the game as nothing special. This game like when you first played guitar hero or such requires time a lots of it to be able to work yourself higher. This game I would suggest each person to atleast try it at the moment they do have demos at best buy and such or you could go try a friend's first, but the appeal of the game mainly bases around your taste of gaming.
Gameplay: The gameplay of DJ hero is rather fun in my opinion and also extremely difficult. Along with the 3 buttons you have to push you also must scratch the notes by moving the disk back and forth as well as use the crossfader to make your track back a forth which all together creates a pretty challenging game altogether. This game as I said before requires a lot of time to get the hang of probably a bit longer than guitar hero is reaching the higher difficulties. On the good side though the gameplay is rather fun, but you will probably be unable to play the game for long periods of time because it starts getting repetitious and boring if played too long.
Graphics: Visually DJ hero is just like every other guitar hero game the visuals are pretty crisp although since this is also a music game I doubt you will spend much time looking at the visuals especially since you will probably be playing the entire time. If you do happen to look at it the graphics are not top notch, but they are good enough for the game.
Sound: The audio is definitly the highlight of the game. The music of cource mainly consists of Rap and hip hop, but the game suprised even me when it had catagories such as jazz of Herbie Han@!%#*! and techno such of Justice. The music although I normally loathe music such of rap and hip hop I managed to really get into the music. The music choices are really diverse, but if you do not like any of the catagories I mentioned above I don't think you will have the greatest time with this game. For everyone else though I would almost get the game just for the remixes.
