Irony is having a rhythm game:
-where the music does not match the beat counter
-the hit detection does not match the beat
-and same annoying loop of music will be in your head forever because you only get "Summer Boy"

I like this but man is it wonky. Maybe I am used to DJ Hero, but this beat / hit detection is sooooo horrible.

Definately has issues that need ironing out - the buttons arent to the beats and it has no margin of error you have to tap exactly when its in the circle which means you get quite a lot of notes wrong - but very nice looking and free game!
Heres a quick gameplay video i made:

I agree with everything that's already been said. Very nice graphics and an interesting concept, but the rhythm-game portions are very unpolished. It seems like I have to hit the circles slightly After the beat, and I've messed up a lot of scratches due to this. Also, the level requirements for unlocking the better (ie. more powerful and more challenging) moves are also absurdly high. I want to be able to play a challenging rhythm game without the wait.

On the positive side, the interface itself is extremely slick, and you can actually get quite a lot of playtime out of your initial set of stuff before you run out, which is great compared to other freemium titles. The music is surprisingly good as well, though I don't like the song that blatantly samples New Order (you'll see what I mean when you play). One thing that is rather disappointing however, is that they aren't full songs, more like short loops that play over and over again until the battle finishes.

Overall, an okay diversion, but not your next addiction.

Some of you guys must have noticed one little disturbing thing about this game...

A dog is telling you to buy crystal meth

That's right

This game is about playing DJ Hero against other DJs while hopped up on meth to score some more for your next fix/to sell on the drug market for upgrades

You can also buy meth with a lot of real money through IAP!

Surprising amounts of realism!

Anyone help. I'm on chapter 4 and can't find the bits for the night club collection ? I keep going to night clubs but I'm only finding ninja set bits.

Nvm finally started getting bits after days of trying different nightclubs.
