The game received "generally positive" reviews, according to video game review aggregator Metacritic.[3]

After a series of low selling expansion titles of the first game, DDRMAX2: Dance Dance Revolution surprisingly stood out compared to other games in the series in terms of sales, selling 1.09 million units in the US.[citation needed] It is one of only three titles to have sold over a million units, the other two being the first game, Dance Dance Revolution and possibly either Dance Dance Revolution Extreme or Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA, and is the first and only game in the series to have sold over a million units in the United States alone.[citation needed]
