DJ Hero is out tomorrow in the US and Friday in the UK.
IGN UK has gone live with the first review for the game, giving the game a 9.3.
Here's a snip:
Those quibbles aside though, we're full of praise for FreeStyleGames' sterling work on its inaugural franchise debut. DJ Hero is a beautifully structured experience that understands the rhythm-action genre thoroughly enough to appeal directly to progression-obsessed fans, yet knows how to juggle its goods to offer a music experience that's never frustrating and wears its unpretentious accessibility with pride. Its perfectly-judged difficulty curve ensures there's a richly rewarding sense of accomplishment as you hone your turntable skills and, even if you're just looking for a quick spin, the quality of the game's audio is compelling in itself. Hands-down, it's the most exciting, refreshing music game we've played in ages and, whether on or off the decks, DJ Hero succeeds admirably in its goal to bring people together to party - and isn't that what music's all about?
This is only the start. Expect more reviews to go live soon.
