FULL DJ Hero 2 Soundtrack Free
Reviewers found the soundtrack provided a wider range of genres, moving away from hip-hop and into house and dance genres, to appeal to more players. Matt Helgeson of Game Informer considered that the mixes were "uniformly great", and balanced popular artists with skilled DJ mixers. Eurogamer's Keza MacDonald stated the soundtrack was "faultless" and that while featuring a large number of songs from the club scene, the soundtrack is "still a powerful draw if you don't know or even like the music". Official Xbox Magazine UK's Mike Channell believed the "mashups also feel even more playful this time around", creating new interpretations of the lyrics of songs through the mixing. Cian Hassett of PALGN called the setlist "the most incredible fusion of contrasting genres known to man". Some critics commented that they felt the first game's track list was better; Damien Hatfield of IGN felt there was "more variety" in the original game's mix and better representation within certain genres, while Michael Brown of 1UP.com favored DJ Hero's set for "how it mixed together frequently disparate tracks" and that many mixes in the sequel favored too much of one song in the mix.
