This is a nice alternative to guitar hero and the turntables are backwards compatible from the 1st dj hero. You can even put the 15 remixes from the 1st dj hero onto this sequel. Boosting your remix count to 127 (83 on disc and 29 dlc remixes for dj hero 2). Be warned though, dlc is expensive. 3 songs are just 7.99. Single player campaign will take you 5 to 10 hours to beat (took me 7). This isn't including multiplayer, dlc content, and to 100 percent in trophies.
If you still need turntables then get the dj hero 2 party bundle that comes with a white turntable, a black turntable, and a mic (includes batteries).
The gameplay mechanics for the turntables are flawless and if things get too hard/easy you can change the difficulty, but the multiplayer/battles feels tacked on compared to its' siblings. In guitar hero on tour you could activate stuff to mess up your opponent. Even the singing/rapping feels like it has been slapped on there, but we haven't come for that. So it gets a pass in my books.
If you don't like scratching turntables, huge amounts of improv during music segments, or hip hop music in general. Then just skip this IP even though there are a variety of other music genres in the game.
