ZeroTolerance writes: The music game genre isn't quite what it used to be. The barrage of plastic guitars and bulky drum kits is likely to begin a major decline in the coming years and it is time to move on. Activision has decided to get a head start and create a new plastic instrument as well as going back to the core of what made the genre popular in the first place. DJ Hero is an interesting combination of club music and rhythm games that introduces a brand new peripheral and even more interesting, a new way to play. DJ Hero is a very fun game with a unique peripheral that unfortunately will not appeal or probably reach the same mass appeal as Guitar Hero and that is truly a shame.
