"Karaoke Revolution" é uma das melhores opções de karaokê no mercado. Ele não vai fazer as pessoas que odeiam o passatempo passar a gostar dele, mas cantores do chuveiro que não ligam para o fato de todas as músicas serem americanas não têm razão para ficar de fora deste palco.

Worth Playing
To sum it up, Karaoke Revolution gives hope to all of the rejected American Idol contestants that they can some day be a super star … yeah, right. Overall, this game is top-notch and highly enjoyable. Coupled with the multiplayer options, you and your buddies will have loads of laughs and good times for a long while. With the addition of extra bonus CDs that add more songs to the mix, the game’s replay value is quite possibly inexhaustible. Konami has done it again in unleashing a new way of fun and self embarrassment! I strongly urge all closet singers and regular gamers to pick up this title.

I’m not a big fan of karaoke, but when I saw a preview of Karaoke Revolution, I was intrigued. Not too long after that, I received a coupon for $10 off the game in a newspaper circular and the deal was sealed; this was a game that I had to have.

Karaoke Revolution is one great singing game. This has to be one of the best party games out on the market so far. However, because of the lack of songs, this game can get old real fast. So Konami should start pumping out those expansions as soon as possible.

KR's fantastic and I haven't been able to pull myself away! It satisfies my guilty pleasure to sing without the glares from angry bar hops and it's the perfect game for anyone who celebrates the joys of music. Besides, you have to do something while you're resting in between DDR sessions! Buy it, play it and love it, and to Konami, if you're looking for new songs for those expansion discs, "Hit me baby one more time!"

What universal language unites us all? Psychologists could argue for an eternity about this one, but I've got my own theory: music. The words, although important, are not always as important as the sound. Great poetry is just great poetry when paired with bad music. But great music can tell a story, warm our hearts, churn or emotions, and conclude a saga without any words at all. Still, we find ourselves more compelled to play music that we can sing along to (interact with) than anything else.

For the many years since the karaoke phenomenon took off in the states, people have been coming up with new ideas to bring the singing back into the home. Over in Japan, where it's pronounced "kah-rah-oh-kay," the portable karaoke machine has practically become standard picnic equipment, second to the portable grill. While these machines did their job all right, the technology was the equivalent of gluing a PA to a tape deck. Get an instrumental track and off you went. It was clear that a change was needed, a big change. Dare I say it, a revolution, a Karaoke Revolution.

Karaoke Revolution is two products in one: 1) a music game where up to 8 players can take turns trying to out-croon each other, and 2) a basic karaoke machine that lets you sing along with 36 different pop hits. If you can't stop yourself from singing with the radio, you gotta pick this one up.

It doesn't matter if it's not good enough, for anyone else to hear. Sing, sing a song! Karaoke Revolution is one of those games you either get, or you don't. It's embarrassing, annoying, entertaining, innovative, and … not as challenging as you might have hoped. The idea is simple. Take the basic premise behind a karaoke machine: a bunch of songs, lyrics that scroll across the screen, a microphone, and someone willing to put on a show, and then belt your heart out.

Konami has been the dominant force in rhythm / music games with its Bemani line. Whether it's dancing, banging on drums, shredding on a guitar, or tickling the ivory, Konami has delivered a successful formula that serves up simple and addictive gameplay, no matter your musical instrument of choice. For its next act, the company tests your natural sound pipes in Karaoke Revolution. It's the most universally appealing rhythm / music title the company has ever released and one of the greatest party games of all time.
