PSX Extreme: "Let’s make one thing clear right off the bat: there is a distinct difference between Guitar Hero and DJ Hero. It goes well beyond the type of music and plastic interactive instruments; it’s about the interaction itself. In the long-running Guitar Hero, one simply plays what one is given (for the most part). In DJ Hero, one has more control over the music and presentation and herein lies the biggest appeal of the new “Hero” series. This really isn’t my kind of music but I can certainly appreciate the level of creativity and imagination required to get the most out of this experience, and with the new freestyle elements in DJ Hero 2, fans of the original ought to be happy."
