    The covers tend to drift into cruise ship territory too often but given the extensive song library, eclectic choices and millions of options, Wii Karaoke U gets away with it.

    For parties with musical entertainment, Wii Karaoke U is a choice to consider. Its varied and enormous repertoire is sure to please any music fan and its control system makes a good use of the Wii U GamePad, which helps in overlooking a number of mistakes on the classification of the songs.

    Wii Karaoke U brings a comprehensive tracklist and plenty of options for you to enjoy, though the experience is way better if you've got a USB microphone.

    Wii Karaoke U isn't perfect. Some issues prevent the game from being better; however, casual gaming lovers will find the perfect companion to fun-filled nights with friends in the Joysound production.

    Wii Karaoke U is a classic karaoke game with a couple of interesting twists. The subscription model is pretty much the same of services such as Xbox LIVE Gold, and the huge track list is a good way to let every kind of player to enjoy the app.

    In collaboration without precedents in Europe between Nintendo and JOYSOUND, there is a fulfillment of the expectations set for a karaoke game. It does not bring anything new or include more game modes than other options available in the market. However, with over 1500 songs that can be transmitted, Karaoke Wii U delivers a resounding musical archive, but there is a cost for this, which results in the impossibility of recording these songs on the disc.

    Wii U Karaoke is not by any means a bad game. It has a vast song library with many choices for all people of all ages. The one major problem with this game is that is utilises cover versions of songs to actually sing over which takes away from the overall Karaoke experience. For a true Karaoke experience, go out to a pub or club get absolutely hammered and do your thing, but if not, this substitutes just fine. Expand

    Wii Karaoke U is not a bad karaoke game. In fact it's a good game. But from a french perspective, there is a big problem There is not a single french song in the playlist, ruining the interrest of the game. Collapse
