  1. For less-critical gamers who just want to imagine they’re auditioning and then going on to Hollywood and a dubious claim to fame, then this should be all you wanted and more.
  2. Encore is a solid sequel and an enjoyable experience, but in 2008, Karaoke Revolution is starting to feel a bit outdated compared to the emerging competition.

    There's no doubt that singing My Heart Will Go On and Knockin' On Heaven's Door is fun, but Encore's limited customization, barebones modes and ho-hum visuals are stacking the deck against you putting the time into the more than 20 unlockables.

    Lots of fun as a party game. Needs more songs, especially classic 60s songs that everyone knows. It's unfair that only the Xbox and PS3 versions have downloadable tunes. With Wii-Connect, it should be easy to provide additional songs for this system! I would give it a 10 if there were downloadable songs. There are only 3 unlockable songs, with additional videos and characters (big deal)! Expand
