WorthPlaying writes, "Ultimately, DJ Hero 2 is a rare game that delivers exactly what it promises and does it exceedingly well. It's not quite perfect, but it does improve on the original effort in a number of noticeable ways. Visually polished, accessible to newbies and yet extremely challenging for the experts, DJ Hero 2 offers something for everyone. The only negative to DJ Hero 2 is the fact that there is no way to export all of the tracks in the original game for play in the second. Hopefully this is something we'll see in DJ Hero 3."
