  1. A couple of years ago this title might have flown but there are just too many music games currently available for the PS2, and American Idol just seems like a quick and dirty knockoff to cash in on the fever of the show.
  2. Nothing more than an unpolished, but promising, rhythm title. [Feb 2004, p.103]
  3. If you want a good rhythm game, look elsewhere. And if you want American Idol, just go watch the show.
  4. Is it the next "DDR?" No. Will a 13 year old girl love this game? Yeah, I think so.
  5. It’s a very simple concept, if you’re a Pop Idol fan then you’ve probably already put in your pre-order for this game, if you’re not then it’s better left staying away from this game it’s simply too shallow and doesn’t last long enough to warrant more then a rent.

    Well, much like the show itself. Repetitive, boring, and not worth the time spent on it.
