  1. DDR aficionados will be disappointed by the lack of the Oni mode. However, one would be hard pressed to find another game with this many options, levels (songs), and customization in this game.
  2. An addicting synergy of videogaming, competition and physical activity, DDRMAX2 is an enjoyable game that can be played by just about anyone. Sure, the core concept is simplistic, but that doesn't mean it isn't good.
  3. It needs 5.1 support, but this is still the best DDR yet. [Nov 2003, p.42]
  4. A fairly simplistic game, an hour or even less spent with DDRMax2 will make even the most jaded gamer realize its charm. Even if it is not your cup of tea, I suggest you give it a try at least once.
  5. Pick your songs from the series' most extensive music library yet (it includes Kylie, Dirty Vegas, obscure J-pop, and a host of fun, anonymous techno crap, and is now supplemented with some videos), calibrate the difficulty of the required moves, and simply follow the on-screen instructions. Can you dig it? I knew that you could.
  6. Nothing in the world of electronic entertainment involves the mind and body quite like this game does.
  7. DDRMAX 2 is still fun and a must for any fan of the series, but it would've been nice to have seen more in terms of new modes of play and improved visuals. [Oct 2003, p.71]
