    DJ Hero 2 may not make major steps forward, but the additions, refinements and minor tweaks that FreeStyle Games have made really build on the solid foundations that the first game laid down to make DJ Hero 2 an even better experience then before and in my opinion, currently the best music game around.
  2. DJ Hero was my favorite music game of 2009, and I'm happy to report this sequel bests its predecessor in nearly every way.
  3. A sequel done right. It deals with the original's issues and adds features to keep things fresh.

    An impressive sequel that's well worth owning, but if you're new to the franchise and not sure which one to get first, DJ Hero 2's extra scratches, freestyle elements and online offerings make it the obvious choice.

    With the changes and additions that have been made, DJ Hero 2 is definitely a better game than last year's edition.

    It is a great example of what this genre can offer.

    Not as good tracklist as the previous game, but still a hell of a lot of scratching fun.
