  • Summary: Transforming video game consoles into a high-end interactive karaoke machine, Karaoke Revolution's expanded multiplayer modes allows players to throw karaoke parties with their friends where they can perform as teams or choose to play in the single player career mode. If you just want to hear your favorite songs in succession, create a playlist and whenever you're ready to perform, pick up the microphone and jump in at anytime! Players can join together on a wide variety of contemporary hits and classic favorites from licensed master recordings. Additionally, those using either the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 can utilize the co-op Party Mode with multiple game modes for up to 16 players or battle with or against each other in the ultimate competition. Also new to this year's version is the custom venue and custom character creators which allow singers to design and personalize their venues and characters in ways that will catch the attention of the crowd. Karaoke Revolution also offers singers to almost create a virtual representation of themselves with the abundance of character customization and record themselves with the Xbox LIVE Vision Camera or the Playstation Eye to incorporate themselves right on screen inside their custom venues! Additionally, Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers can also select and download licensed master tracks, share exclusive venues and additional clothing and accessories. Like all versions from this acclaimed franchise, Karaoke Revolution features a proprietary voice recognition technology which accurately recognizes and scores vocal pitch and rhythm. Real-time feedback is offered by the dynamic crowds that fill each virtual venue. The game comes packaged with a microphone for players to be ready to perform. [Konami] Expand

    Sadly, the dated animations and blah presentation keep this title from being anything amazing, but singers will have fun with it if they lower their expectations.
  2. It’s both interesting and sad to see how the Karaoke Revolution franchise has paved the way for these other games to thrive, but now the Karaoke Revolution titles are being heavily overmatched by what its successors are doing.
  3. And between the bland menus and creepily animated singers, Karaoke Revolution even looks the part of a last-gen holdover. [Holiday 2009, p.83]
  4. Konami could easily have saved its reboot of Karaoke Revolution. Redo the graphics to a less creepy style that brings back the energy, keeps the mechanics, and chooses a much stronger song list, and the sequel to this game could be immensely satisfying and bring this series back from the brink. For now, when I want to sing, I'm sticking with EA's Rock Band 2.

    Teenage girls can have some fun with yet another karaoke game. But for all the others counts: don't waste your lungs with this game. Our suggestion: More Michael Jackson songs next time please.
