Summary: This is an absolutely must-have for bemani-style lovers! A great music collection, (I personally like Black Square better, but it doesn't fall behind), nice graphics, and responsive controls. Great game.
Summary: I actually used to not care for "rhythm games". I've tried a few (some obscure, some major titles...I'll keep those unnamed), but ultimately they fell flap and failed to show me why rhythm games are even games. But music is a huge part of my life and I came across some music tracks from the DJ Max franchise while looking for new sounds and ideas...and some of it was really spectacular. That was enough for me to give one more "rhythm game" a chance..
Summary: The Good: Awesomely huge soundtrack, super addictive game play, lots of extras The Bad: Same as the Korean versions, nothing new has been added, missing key songs from previous titles DJ Max is a huge rhythm game hit in Korea that use a DDR type game play style. There is obviously no dance mat so you have to use the face buttons and this works out just fine. There are 4 button, 5, 6, and 8 button modes. While 4 is the easiest 8 can be damn near impossible.
Summary: I am a fan of rhythm games. The DJ max series are my favorites. U get to choose the level of difficulty based on the number of buttons to work with. Anyone who has never played any DJ max games can step right into gear and enjoy it. I hope more games of this kind will appear in the gaming market.
Summary: I purchased this game because it seemed very similar to IIDX. The first thing I noticed was the insane learning curve. On beginner mode, up to about level 5 songs are pretty easy. Then level 6 they just go insane. The patterns do not follow anything that is going on in the song, and even counting the beats didn't help. I was dissappointed the game wasn't more friendly to beginners. The music selection while large, offered very few songs I enjoyed.
Summary: Ok so DJMAX is one of the greatest PSP games of all time. Its not really a well known game to my knowledge so I tell everyone I know about this game and recommend it to them. Anyways, this game is basiclly very simple, just hit the notes to make the music! At first the controls are awkward because it uses Left, Up, Triangle, and Square (at first) to hit notes You get used to it in about 20min maybe even less.
