  • Summary: Turn your Xbox into a high-end, interactive karaoke machine with Karaoke Revolution, the latest in Konami's line of music video games. Karaoke Revolution features a varied list of tunes from current hits to yesterday's classics. With the Xbox Communicator, you'll not only sing song, but get judged on your performance--so make sure you're on key. Take your voice to the ultimate concert venue in Showtime mode. This version of Karaoke Revolution also features more than 10 Motown classics and additional songs that you can download via Xbox Live. Expand

  1. A surprising amount of detail from a game that shouldn't be so visually distracting.
  2. It is a technically amazing piece of software, with no issues with errors or bugs with the coding.

    Not a deep game nor should it be. It's more like Karaoke Plus and does its job well.
  4. More than just singing to words on a screen. It's an actual game that rates your performance with a vocal analyzer that scores how well you stayed on key. [Holiday 2004, p.80]
  5. Coming out almost a year late than the first Revolution, the Xbox version lacks many of the improvements Harmonix made for PlayStation 2's "Karaoke Revolution Volumes 2 and 3." [Dec 2004, p.88]
  6. Despite the lacking modes, the new songs and Xbox Live make Karaoke Revolution on Xbox incredibly versatile. [Dec 2004, p.115]
  7. 75
    If you've played any of the Karaoke Revolution games on the PS2, there's really nothing that you're missing with this iteration, other than the downloadable Xbox live content. For those out there that have never experienced Karaoke Revolution, expect to have a lot of fun with it.

    I love it is everything that I expected and more. I love the fact that you can download the extra songs. The ratings system is fantastic and it is just great for parties. If you do not have this yet go out and get now man!!!! Expand

    Having this game is better than owning a several hundered dollar karaoke machine. The rating system gives you useful feedback about your own singing abilities (or lack there of). The song selection is especially excellent. It's filled with quality, memorable tracks, except for the 1 nickelback song - it's well documented that they suck. Overall this game is outstanding, no matter what singing level you're at. Expand

    While this game is really fun to play, when competing against the PS2 release of Karaoke Revolution(version 3) and Singstar Party, it is lacking the most fun component..."battle mode". I can only imagine that the Konami marketing gurus decided a quick double grab for Xbox owners cash would be the way to go, by releasing what is effectively the same as the PS2 version 1 game. Why not go straight to the much better version 3, given that KR1 for Xbox was released to stores on the same day as KR3 for PS/2? I'll tell you why...they want us to buy this, then when they release KR3 for xbox they'll expect us to pay again for the new features. Shame on you Konami for not giving us Xbox owners what we know is widely available on that OTHER platform!!! Expand
