  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. 100
    Mixing a great single-player game and a variety of multiplayer events, Karaoke Revolution is a cool, original, and distinctive party game.
  3. 93
    If you're hesitant to buy this game because you can't sing well, don't worry- the flexible judging level makes it easy for just about anyone to pick up this game. This is definitely a must-have title.
  4. 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.
  5. Best of all, the song list, spanning over three decades worth of popular American music, contains easily recognizable and fun songs for anyone raised here in the States. [Dec 2003, p.82]
  6. This is the best party game I've ever played. It's accessible to everyone. You don't even have to pick up a controller.
  7. 90
    It's one of the best and most enjoyable rhythm / music games ever made.
  8. 90
    The game's voice recognition works great and enables you to switch from a low baritone to high falsetto without confusing the judging. Unfortunately, it doesn't distinguish whether you’re actually singing the correct lyrics, so you can get by with just "na, na, na'ing" it when you’re in trouble.
  9. The perfect party game, not to mention the best home karaoke product on the market.
  10. Another musical gem from Konami, the type of game that transcends videogames. Its pick up and play nature ensures that anyone can get into it and it's a great party game.
  11. All in all a fun, if brief, addition to the X-Revolution series, and well worth the price.

    Great game, nice variety in songs, but not enough of them. It's creative, and contrary to what I thought--not hard to get others involved. Everyone is shy at first, until I sing one or two songs, then everyone wants to play--I wish that worked with DDR also:) The only let down is that the expansion discs never came, instead we bought a new KR-2 and now you have to change discs to play a different song. I wish that I could play the first game's songs in the medley mode offered in the second. . .and with the new songs. Hopefully Konami will eventually make an accual computer program for this game or platform that allows for new song downloads or buys, I may not be able to go to the Karaoke bar anymore though if they do. . .Great job, oh and the corny graphics and characters only add to the fun of this game, that's all for now. . .~Skit Full Review »
