he game's October launch brought about the sort of changes that critics had been clamouring for: namely, a markedly different play style, an all-new controller, and a radically different approach to music in the form of novel mash-ups and remixes. More to the point, it was a lot of fun.
Activision claims DJ Hero was the top grossing new IP of 2009, but that's a bit of an empty boast. (What was it up against exactly? Scribblenauts?) Meanwhile, business analysts have reported modest sales. If the game's slashed RRP is anything to go by, we reckon the analysts must have the right of it. With any luck, DJ Hero 2 will be a bigger hit.
