Now, I admit right out, I haven't owned the game yet. But note the yet; it's an eventuality that I will own this game, which is something I can't say for just about any other music game out there. It's not that hard to say why, really, either. With the rest of the music games out there, you're just playing a song you can hear anywhere and already have quite a few times over. With DJ Hero, granted you can listen to the songs on youtube (Which I did, and how I gained my appreciation of the game), at least they're different. The effort was put in to make them unique remixes, completely different versions of the songs made by some of the more prominent DJs around, including a duo I have no qualms in gushing about.
|If you don't know who these two people are, then I really feel for you.|
I'm not going to drag this out too much; if you like any or all of these songs, I'd encourage you to check out the rest of the soundtrack, and perhaps even get the game! (Actually, you should probably get the game.)
There was a sequel, of course, which, you'd think I'd be all gushing about it as well, but, really, the mixes were a lot less quality the second time around. While present in the first soundtrack, the second has a lot of instances where it's just one song's vocals over another song's, er, well, music. This works sometimes. But not all the time, and certainly not to the extent that DJ Hero 2 features it. It's a little frustrating, honestly; the one over another remixes are a dime a dozen on youtube, but something like the three mixes I posted from the first? That's some effort and it really shows. I just hope that if there manages to be a DJ Hero 3, that they work that out a bit.
