With gamers suffering from a Guitar Hero overdose, it’s time for turntables to take center stage. With consulting help from legendary artists Jay-Z and Eminem, this hip-hop take on Guitar Hero’s addictive gameplay wins over wannabe mix masters with its turntable controller that features a sample button, cross-fader, and a record platform for scratching. Playing as characters such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, Grandmaster Flash, and even the late DJ AM, you’ll combine over 100 iconic songs from a diverse group of genres to create unique mash-ups—like M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” and Eric B. & Rakim’s “Eric B. Is President”—you won’t hear anywhere else. Plug in a Guitar Hero guitar for some multi-instrument co-op, or fuel your party with an automated playlist when you’re spinning.
