It doesn’t have the polish or refinement of SingStar, but it does have heaps of potential, and the career mode will keep you busy for a while, especially when you consider a SingStar disk usually ships with 30 songs and a Lips disk with 40.
Karaoke Revolution has a pretty boring interface and career mode, but the gameplay is pretty funny. It’s got a lot of tracks and you are able to create your own character and stage. If you like SingStar or Lips, then this is a nice alternative.
Beyond a party game with a crowd, there’s very little in the way of a compelling single-player mode here. Instrument-based games do a great job of making playing solo fun. Karaoke Revolution does not. [May 2010 p.79]
