Summary: Ok. First off, I'm a big fan of the DJMAX series. I recently purchased Fever and LOVED it. I have also played other DJMAX titles but I have to say, this is the WORST!! The graphics and interface are somewhat decent, but once you get into the game play it's horrible. the songs are really cheesy and the remix feature is awful. unless you're a hardcore DJMAX gamer, I wouldn't start off with this one. Feh.
Cuts up the wazoo ruin DJ Max Portable's first full international coming out party.

Summary: The DJ Max series has had success internationally. Originally a Korea-only affair, Portable, Portable 2, Clazziquai, and Black Square were all easily imported thanks to the PSP's region-free stance on games and the game's easy to access nature with options that can be set to English. 2009 saw the first international version of DJ Max with DJ Max Fever, a best-hits compilation of DJ Max 1 & 2 for the North American and Asian markets.
Summary: I own all the DJ Max games for the PSP, including the excellent Black Square, and Clazziquai edditions (Metro Project). I play DJ Max all the time, and I absolutely love the series. Needless to say, I was very excited to get my hands on DJ Max Portable 3. However, as soon as I started to play, the flaws were immediately apparent. In my opinion, the biggest flaw in the DJ Max Portable 3 is the addition of the new 3.2T, 4.2T, and 6.2T button modes.
Summary: The DJ Max Portable games are rhythm games similar to other games in the genre, like Pop'n Music, Beatmania, and Guitar Hero/Rock Band. Rhythm games usually have some sort of "gimmick" to differentiate themselves from the other titles, and the first DJ Max Portable's gimmick was simply being one of the first rhythm games for the PSP. The soundtrack ranged from rap to pop, probably to appeal to a larger audience.
