Beatmania Complete Mix 2 is the 7th arcade release in the Beatmania series of games from Konami. This version contains many game modes such as: Random, Mirror, Battle, Hi-speed, Double, Hidden, Sudden and more.
Beatmania is a music game where the player takes on the role of a DJ. The gameplay involves the player selecting a song, with the player then having to match the notes by pressing the keys and scratching the turntable in time with the music. At the end of the song the player is rated based on their performance, and may only progress to the next song if they have rated well enough.
The game controls consist of five rectangular keys that are arranged in a zig-zag pattern. They resemble the layout of the keys of a piano and are colour coded in the same fashion, with the lower row white and top row black. A turntable is to the right of the five keys, and is turned, or "scratched".
A North American version was also released under the name HipHopMania Complete Mix 2. This version includes most of the same songs as found in its Japanese version counterpart.
