  1. There’s simply no way to please everyone when it comes to a song list, but damned if Harmonix and Konami didn’t try.
  2. 70
    If anything, Sing and Dance is a good idea on paper, but absolutely flawed in its execution. Arrows are laid side-by-side, making the more difficult patterns a pain to read correctly, and having to focus on scrolling arrows while watching your singing pattern (to make sure the game is recognizing it correctly) is incredibly counter-intuitive.
  3. I can't say enough about the pitch detector. It's one of the most incredible tools available for potential musicians, and I don't say that lightly.
  4. Would-be singers will as always love this game, and it's a must have if you are collecting the series.
  5. From rock to pop to the genres in between, Karaoke Revolution Party has got it covered.
  6. Since the first volume of Karaoke Revolution, the series has been known as a great party game for the PS2, and the addition of this title just enhances an already astounding series.
  7. The huge song list coupled with the EyeToy make this great fun for all ages. [Dec 2005, p.106]
  8. This is everything I've wanted the franchise to become. [Dec 2005, p.161]

    If you’ve gotten burned out on Karaoke Revolution games by the previous sequels, Karaoke Revolution Party will bring you back.
  10. New features improve on the game and while I wish there were more varied songs offered from the start, this is probably the best Karaoke Revolution game to date.
  11. One advantage of dancing in a karaoke game is the music is better. I would rather dance to "Play That Funky Music" than to the grating songs that riddle games like Dance Dance Revolution.
  12. Easily the most fun you'll have singing outside of the shower, Karaoke Revolution Party takes the next logical step for the franchise and delivers what's probably the strongest showing of the series yet.
  13. Cancel the carolers--this is the only entertainment you'll need at your holiday party.
  14. The minigames in this feel somewhat wasted and limited, but the party modes themselves can be a lot of fun, adding some definite multiplayer mayhem to the title.
  15. It’s certainly nice to have a real focus on multiplayer this time around—especially since that’s when the game will see the most use, anyway—but the loss of the campaign mode is a real downer.

    The finest and most fun karaoke game on any console and even rivals many PC-based karaoke programs.
  17. We only have on question: Are you ready to rock? [Nov p.92]
  18. All in all, Karaoke Revolution Party is a dish best served up with a bunch of friends, a case of beer and a lack of inhibitions.
  19. Karaoke Revolution Party makes a good party game, especially if you've got all the necessary peripherals, but it's no greater than the song list, which is too diverse for its own good.
  20. First, I had a problem actually singing and performing the songs well, and second, I managed to cheat my way through most of the songs by humming really loudly.
  21. Great variety in song types, but the same old issue of actually knowing and liking the songs inside and out stands. The game lives up to the Party moniker if used in those situations, but as a single-player experience, it's a bit weak.
  22. 80
    Harmonix's own "Guitar Hero" is still tops--mainly due to its cool factor--but if you need to entertain a rowdy group at your next gathering, nothing says hours of good times like Karaoke Revolution Party.
  23. As you might expect, it's great for parties, but the solo modes leave a bit to be desired. [Dec 2005, p.126]
  24. 60
    Dancing and singing simply takes too much coordination, and the steps aren't timed well enough with the music to make them feel as natural as they should've.
  25. Like all Karaoke titles, this is a must buy for anyone from the tone deaf to the singing experts.
