If you like karaoke games, Karaoke Revolution is a no-brainer even if you already own SingStar. It doesn’t have the polish or refinement of SingStar, but it does have heaps of potential, and the career mode will keep you busy for a while, especially when you consider a SingStar disk usually ships with 30 songs and a Lips disk with 40.

Karaoke Revolution macht viele Dinge besser als Sonys Platzhirsch SingStar: Die Möglichkeit, die Original-Gesangsstimmen auszublenden ist genau so erfreulich wie die prall gefüllte Trackliste sowie die Gesangskarriere für Solisten. Die Gesangserkennnung funktioniert - das richtige Mikrofon vorausgesetzt - richtig gut, wenn auch nicht ganz so präzise wie bei den "großen" Mitbewerbern von Sony und Microsoft. Bei der schwachen Präsentation müssen die anfänglichen Jubelszenen aber schnell lauten Buh-Rufen weichen. Warum liefert man nur diese lahmen Bühnenshows? Und warum kann ich nicht optional die Original-Videos im Vollbild genießen? Auch die Art der Darstellung ist vor allem bei flotteren Songs etwas unglücklich, denn neben dem zu klein geratenen Text ist das Scroll-Tempo teilweise zu hoch ausgefallen. Unterm Notenstrich ist Konamis Karaoke-Auftritt aber eine der besseren SingStar-Alternativen, die zum Glück nicht viel mit dem grausigen Rock Revolution gemeinsam hat.

In conclusion, Karaoke Revolution does offer PlayStation 3 owners something different than just Singstar and even though that is the dominant karaoke style of game in the console world, it's good to see other developers attempt something different in terms with avatars. With a very strong track listing and some interesting multiplayer options, Karaoke Revolution will definitely gather some fans. The biggest shame is the career mode which is a little lacklustre and the graphics are a little dated but given the impressive 75 songs included, that's pretty hard to ignore. Definitely a game for the casual gamer, tween or teen!

When I first saw Karaoke Revolution at E3 2009, I thought this game really had a chance at returning the franchise to greatness. Sadly, the dated animations, blah presentation, and complete lack of DLC or online play keep this title from being anything amazing, but singers will have fun with it if they lower their expectations. The master tracks are a welcome addition, the creation modes have some depth, and it's cool that the party mode remembers the people who have played before. Still, there's no need to rush out and snatch this one up.

Even with this solid track list, and the sensible step away from Simon Cowell, Karaoke Revolution still fails to answer what makes it unique. Without ever really creating a reason to buy the game on the basis of functionality, most people will look elsewhere for their singing fun. True, younger players may enjoy the dress-up stage show elements of the game, but I think that pleasure will fall to the Wii version to provide.

As I said at the start, Karaoke Revolution had the odds stacked against it given how far the genre has come since the first Karaoke Revolution titles were released. 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. Harmonix just announced its downloadable song catalog for Rock Band has topped 1000 songs. Meanwhile, Karaoke Revolution players who want to build up their song library are currently faced with an empty screen. This is sadly indicative of Karaoke Revolution on the whole: It comes up short in most categories, but is empty in others. Konami has some major catching up to do, let alone being in a situation to push the envelope.

Karaoke Revolution offers a bit more gameplay customization than Lips, and it also includes online play (which its competitor lacks), but the straightforward singing experience is largely unchanged from nearly every previous iteration, making it tough to drum up much enthusiasm for the game. And between the bland menus and creepily animated singers, Karaoke Revolution even looks the part of a last-gen holdover. But the game ultimately does its job, even if it’s without style or exuberance. Let’s just agree that it shouldn’t be called a revolution.

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. At least Konami has done a better job at vocal games than Activision, but for someone who used to be a hardcore Konami fanboy, that's still a pretty bitter pill to swallow.

Alle ingrediënten zijn wel aanwezig en je kunt best wat plezier beleven met een spel als Karaoke Revolution. Alleen bij een titel die het woord 'revolutie' in zich draagt, verwacht en wil je meer. Zeker als je merkt dat de game een carrièremodus bevat, iets waarmee het spel zich weet te onderscheiden van de andere karaoke games. Helaas wordt dit dan niet florissant uitgevoerd, wat een gemiste kans is. De tracklist is redelijk, maar niet meer dan dat. Wat moet je nu met enkel "Ben" van Michael Jackson? Ik zeg het nog één keer: met een Michael Jackson karaoke game heb je goud in handen. Daar lopen we warm voor, niet voor de zoveelste muziekgame zoals deze. Net als bij een goede maaltijd, heb je er niets aan om alle ingrediënten te kennen, maar moet je deze ook op de juiste manier mixen. En dat laatste loopt voor het grootste deel mis bij Karaoke Revolution.
