  • Summary: In response to popular demand, Karaoke Revolution 3 will let karaoke crooners sing with - and compete against - friends with the addition of duel microphone support and exciting new modes for two mic gameplay. In addition, Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 includes more than 35 new songs. Duets mode lets aspiring pop stars play as a team and shoot for high scores by singing along to classic karaoke duet tunes such as "Under Pressure," "Love Shack" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Players can even practice their separate parts and learn how to harmonize with each other to achieve the perfect score. For some friendly competition, two players can square off and take turns singing every other phrase in a song while joining together during the chorus in Sing-Off mode. The player with the most points at the end of the track wins. Knockout mode offers the fiercest karaoke battle yet, pitting players against each other while singing the same song in unison. A battle meter keeps track of the gamers' progress and when it fills up for one player, the other is knocked out! The collection of well-known tunes includes "Beat It," "Killing Me Softly," "New York, New York" and "You're The One That I Want." [Konami] Expand

  1. Boasting another large assortment of popular tunes, Volume 3 also sidesteps the pitfalls of its predecessor with the inclusion of duets—a seemingly simple addition that changes the entire face of the game and elevates the series to a new high.
  2. If only the game had downloadable tunes, it'd be perfect. As is, it's still a must-have, whether you sing like Frank Sinatra or Frank the Garbageman.

    Volume 3 has more songs, better variety, more character, more costumes, and more venues than its predecessors. Most importantly, it adds a new twist to the series with duet modes.
  4. Probably the best vocal series available at this time for any console.
  5. I'm still bummed that the single player arcade mode from the original hasn't returned, but what's here is good fun - particularly when sobriety is lacking. [Nov 2004, p.76]

    A handful of tracks will have you scratching your head, wondering why they were included, but you’ll forget all about that once you’re centerstage, and the beat drops for Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.”
  7. Thankfully this game includes a pitch meter which measures the input pitch against the actual pitch and shows the singer the difference (i.e. if he or she is flat or sharp).

    I like the fact that there is duet mode, but there are sound problems that it messes up the game play and the singers that sing the songs are not in the least bit comparable to the real singers. Expand
