Pocket Gamer has published a new review of The Sims DJ for Apple's iPod. In the game players attempt to keep the dancers happy by selecting the right mix of songs. If successful they win Simoleans to upgrade their DJ with a variety of skills and "purchase" songs from their library. Pocket Gamer gave the game a score of 8 out of 10.

From the review:

e has been reconfigured to use the songs on your iPod instead. So, you visit the in-game store and choose 'Buy Songs', and are presented with a list of all your tunes sorted by artist, album or genre.

Pick one Amy Winehouse, for example and you'll be able to 'buy' any of those songs with the Simoleons that you've earned from DJing. Once bought, you assign it one of seven genres: World, Country, Dance, Rap, Pop, RnB, or Rock. Then, it goes into your virtual record box for use when DJing.

That works the same as the mobile game, so you'll have an empty dancefloor and a bunch of punters, whose musical tastes are signified by little icons above their heads. Your job is to get them dancing by putting on the right tunes, using your DJ tricks to change those tastes to suit your songs along the way.

The game itself is fairly simple: at every club, you're given certain goals get a certain number of people dancing for a set time period, for example which you tick off as you go. There's also some suitably Sim-like extra bits, such as buying new clothes for your character with your earnings.
