    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 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

  1. 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]
  2. Despite the lacking modes, the new songs and Xbox Live make Karaoke Revolution on Xbox incredibly versatile. [Dec 2004, p.115]
  3. A surprising amount of detail from a game that shouldn't be so visually distracting.
