DJ Hero Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ***** A music rhythm game and spin-off of the Guitar Hero series, using a turntable to mix songs. The Platinum requires some serious skills, as getting five stars on all songs on Expert is no cakewalk.
DJ Hero is a music video game and spin-off of the Guitar Hero series, which uses a turntable. Players earn points by accenting beats, adjusting crossfades between songs, and scratching the turntable in time to marks indicated on the screen. The game includes 93 mixes of one or two songs, in a variety of genres from Grunge to Techno.
DJ Hero received generally high reviews, with an average score of 89% for its originality, well-designed turntable peripheral, and strong soundtrack.
Many games don't get harder than this. Having a boosting partner for the 5 online trophies could bring this rating down to 4-stars, but the offline trophies will still give you trouble - particularly Turntable Perfection, in which you need a five-star score on all songs on expert difficulty.
In addition to the overall skills and time required, you will also need to purchase TWO DJ Hero turntables, a Guitar Hero or Rock Band guitar, and a microphone. Not a cheap game, by any means.
The first thing you'll want to do is start the Tutorial, which will not only explain how the game is played, but also earn you the Graduation trophy.
From then on, simply make your way through the setlists. Your ultimate goal is to earn five stars on all the songs in Expert Difficulty, but unless you're a natural, you'll probably want to start on Easy or Normal and work your way up as your skills improve. You will unlock several other miscellaneous trophies along the way. Check out the DJ Hero trophy guide links under our Links tab for further details.
There are also 5 online trophies to worry about, including winning 10 games. Considering the age of this game, and the fact that there are a number of sequels available, finding challengers online can be difficult. Check out the boosting forums under our Links tab if you don't have any friends to play with.
