Worth buying purely for annoying your over-enthusiastic mate that bought it for £100 last year and never plays it anymore. Mastered the plastic guitar, bass and drums (don’t sing on your own it’s weird) of Guitar Hero and Rock Band? Well why not try your skills on the decks?
It’s certainly more of a niche title and not as immediately accessible as the more familiar music peripheral titles but arguably has more of a ‘real thing’ edge to it.
The way you mix two songs together and use the sliders and scratches means there’s more to keep your eye on during a track and also extra room for personal style too.
There are close to a hundred tracks included with the game and extra ones are available via DLC although the extra work required to construct them means they aren’t released as often as Guitar Hero or Rock Band tracks and they are more expensive. Hey don’t pull that face, Activision have to make money back after the Tony Hawk: Ride failure!
The default track list includes the likes of: 50 Cent, Beastie Boys, Benny Benassi, Black Eyed Peas, Blondie, Chuck Brown, David Bowie, Dizzee Rascal, DJ Shadow, Eminem, Eric Prydz, Foo Fighters, Gorillaz, Grandmaster Flash, Gwen Stefani, JAY-Z, LL Cool J, Marvin Gaye, Public Enemy and Rick James. Many of the tracks were remixed by leading names in the industry such as: Grandmaster Flash, DJ Shadow, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Z Trip and DJ AM.
If your mate isn’t too bitter about getting stiffed for £100 you can use two decks for two player matches. For some tracks you can even play co-op with a buddy using a Guitar Hero controller.
