Strategy Informer writes: "It's one thing to offer unsure consumers a guitar to play. It took a few years for many of us to realize just how fun Guitar Hero was, and to come and appreciate it. DJ Hero embarks on that same quest, and we think it succeeds pretty well. Thankfully (for Activision), they're in for the long haul.
From FreeStyleGames and Activision comes DJ Hero, with its own exclusive controller and songlist. While Harmonix put out The Beatles Rock Band, a historical detailing of the band's legacy, Activision set itself to put out four new music titles: Guitar Hero 5, DJ Hero, Band Hero, and Guitar Hero Van Halen. Out of all of these, DJ Hero succeeds almost without measure."
