About this product
|Konami's celebrated crooning series continues its affiliation with television's American Idol in this feature-filled follow-up. Forty classic and contemporary songs from the '70s, '80s, and '90s are featured, with hits made popular by such artists as Fergie, Gladys Knight, Cutting Crew, and Billy Joel. As in previous Karaoke Revolution games, players attempt to match each song's pitch and phrasing using a USB microphone (sold separately). Points are awarded each time a note is hit and held for the proper duration, with bonus multipliers awarded for stringing together successful combos. Up to eight players are supported in various party modes, where teams or individuals challenge each other for top performances.|
After creating a custom singing persona from multiple head, body, clothing, and accessory choices, players will test their vocal skills in venues based on the hit show. While American Idol Encore introduces several new accessories, the biggest surprise is the inclusion of judge Paula Abdul, who was not featured in 2007's game. Adjustable difficulty levels are also available for melody makers of all abilities, and by mastering each challenge setting, players can unlock bonuses such as new characters, tunes, and outfits. Among the featured songs are "Irreplaceable," "Black Hole Sun," "September," "You're Beautiful," "Midnight Train to Georgia," "My Heart Will Go On," and "Unfaithful."

If you liked the first one, you'll love the second. More songs and more smack from Simon! Best of all, no more "Laura" because Paula apparently decided to participate this time around...
I think Simon got a bit nastier in this one even - he likes to hurt your feelings if you can't sing, that's for sure.

My family really loves this game. We have a lot of good family fun playing together. The game was easy to install and easy to use. This is one of those games that the entire family can play (parents, kids and friends).

Karaoke Revolution Presents American Idol
I love anything I can sing with and this game is perfect. I also get to see how well I do in the process. I had played the game with my sister in law a couple of years ago and have been trying to get a Playstation 2 since then. I finally found one in my price range so I bought the game.
