  1. Hands down this is an excellent program. It's much more than a game and that's why I'm referring to it as a program. Every karaoke and potential karaoke singer should get this. Not only is it a lot of fun but it's one of the best ways to improve one's vocal prowess.
  2. It bundles great gameplay, graphics, and astonishing sound to create a wonderful game. For anyone hoping to look for a party or family friendly game, Karaoke Revolution is a definite must.

    It's one of the best and most enjoyable rhythm / music games ever made.
  4. 85
    One of the most enjoyable breaks from traditional gaming to date. The possibilities are endless, the amusement factor is high, and the gameplay is quite easy to learn.
  5. I'm all about bringing the embarrassment, insanity, and fun of karaoke bars into living rooms across our nation - this is a game that anyone can pick up and instantly enjoy. [Dec 2003, p.216]
  6. Though expensive and gimmicky because of its headset peripheral Karaoke Revolution’s pitch/length interface is forgiving enough (depending on the selected difficulty) to let even those of us cursed with shitty voices get into the virtual act and carry a tune.
  7. The main problem with Karaoke Revolution is one of range, and the list of over 30 songs throws in only a few old favourites among a lot of curveballs. Nevertheless, the technology that drives this is absolutely spot-on and, save for a few niggles, this is a unique gaming experience that shows promise for the future. [Jan 2004, p.121]
