A.V. Club: "Activision is taking the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach to the nascent DJ Hero franchise. The debut game rode a generally positive wave of reviews, so for the first sequel, the publisher elected to make only minor changes. The DJ deck packaged in hardware bundles isn’t even branded with an updated logo. Minor as the changes are, the new suite of mash-up mixes sounds more appealing, and software tweaks add some of the multiplayer and freestyling options that were previously lacking."
