A portion of a VG Chartz review:
DJ Hero is the kind of rhythm game I’ve been wanting for a long time, and it does deliver on its gameplay potential. However, it is a mixed bag on both value and presentation, which stops it from being the complete experience I hoped for. No compelling single player or multiplayer modes is a crying shame, and some of the animation is uninspired.
A portion of a G4TV review:
The cheerful setting, bouncy music, and exaggerated animations may result in a toothache from saccharine overload, but don’t make the mistake of thinking the game is a children’s game akin to Hello Kitty Island Adventures. There’s a solid engine underneath the fluffy exterior, and there’s plenty of challenge and replay value for those who want to evolve their Pokémon, recruit new team members, and embark on online adventures to rescue other teams from difficult dungeons or to partake in secret quests.
