IGN: "DJ Hero 2 doesn't mess anything up that made the first game great. I personally prefer the tracklist of the original DJ Hero, but it will come down to how much you like Top 40 radio hits from the likes of Lady Gaga and Pitbull. This is still the best soundtrack of any music game, and the mash-ups remain impressive as hell. There are great new additions like Battle Mode and Freestyle crossfading, but also a couple missteps like vocals and Freestyle scratching. If you liked DJ Hero, I'm confident you'll like the sequel and I recommend it to anyone even casually interested in DJ or dance culture."
