DJ Hero 2

DJ Hero 2 is a rhythm video game that uses a special turntable-controller to simulate turntablism. The game is developed by FreeStyleGames and is published by Activision in October 2010.

Similar to DJ Hero, players in DJ Hero 2 follow specific actions on the turntable controller in time to marked scrolling indicators on the game's screen. The game features 83 mixes on disc comprising over 100 different songs. Most mixes have been assembled by FreeStyleGames, but other professional DJs, including David Guetta, deadmau5, DJ Qbert, Tiƫsto and RZA, have provided both their mixing skills and character avatar for the game.
