This is a great group game! It seems more difficult to get a 'perfect' scoring than the WII American Idol game - which is a good thing. It has many songs from the eighties. Me and my kids have a great time 'performing' it together. We bought it because we had such a fun time with American Idol on our WII game system. Though this game is supposed to play on the WII, keep in mind that you need the right controller (similar to the controller used on the GameCube system) on your WII system for it to work. (We only have the remote and nunchuks so I have to get the 'regular' WII remote for us to be able to play this GameCube game on the WII system.) Also, you might want to go ahead and buy the game that comes with 2 mics, otherwise you won't be able to do duets or parts of the game that necessitate 2 mics - because GameCube equipment is scarce in the stores these days and you more than likely will NOT be able to find a sole separate mic anywhere.
If you like to sing this is an excellent game. I enjoy it and so do all of my kids (ages 4-12), of course, many songs my kids are not familiar with but they enjoy 'repeating' the ones they do know and heightening scores for those songs. However, if you don't like to sing...then maybe this game isn't for you!
One aspect that I would advise the makers to change on future new Karoake games is that they add more songs. Sure 50 songs 'seems' like a lot - but not after you've already scored high on the majority of them. It would be even better if there were more songs. This game does have more songs than the new American Idol game (only 40 songs) - but with the new game you can download songs from the internet as long as you have your system (WII, 360, or PS3)hooked up to it.
My kids are having the most fun with this game. Set on "easy" it's fine for those who cannot hit the notes... set on "hard" it's a challenge for even our resident ex-band-lead-singer. ;-)
It would be great to find additional songs. Scoring higher points unlocks additional songs, but it would be nice to be able to update with current stuff.
Fun for the whole family. The only one who doesn't like it is our kindergartner, who isn't reading well enough to keep up with many songs.
I love this game, there are so many fun modes of play, either solo or with friends and family. I like the choices of songs, and that you can change the way you are judged from easy to hard. I wish you could get more songs, but that's just me, I could karaoke all day and all night! I wish they had another one of these with more songs, I'd buy it in a heart beat. Plus it's fun to create your character, clothes, body size, etc.
You'll like this game if you are into karaoke.
When my children first started hounding me to purchase them yet another game for the Gamecube I hesitated but finally relented.. And am I glad that I did!! This game is one that the entire family can enjoy together. It takes no skill at pressing buttons like on many of the games - just put the microphone to your mouth and sing with the video playing. Watch the on-screen crowd-pleaser go up and down depending on your singing skills. Be careful though - you might get "bood" off the stage if you are really bad. On the other hand, if you carry the tune well through out- the crowd grows, the cheers encourage you on and if you are lucky you earn a platinum record. I recommend starting with the lowest skill setting until your vocal cords warm up!!The selection of songs is varied and there is something for everyone no matter your age - classics like Unforgettable, 80s selections, and of course all the newer stuff. The graphics are great and you can choose from a wide assortment of back drops and costumes for the soloist on the screen. It is just one great game that will give you and your children hours of entertainment. I highly recommend this item!!
We love this. It is so fun even if your singing voice is'nt great! We haven't figured out how to win new songs on the game.
We decided to buy this because we as a family LOVE games. This is something new that we tried and love it. I can't say enough good things about it.
I gave this as a gift to my daughter for Valentine's Day. She played with it right away. We are still airing out the mat, but she sings with it every day. Its great for her self esteem that she can sing the songs and not worry about being critiqued! I love duetting with her and that fact you get lots of songs and cloths for the avatar with out using "money" or a point system. This is probably good for children who need a break from violent games. Some people are into songs other than just rock like others games out there with guitars, or drums. This is so simple for her, she is just 10yrs. Thanks!
This is a very good investment when u are having a bunch of people over and you get togther and want to hear them sing it is better than the machine you have to use this is all in one package and is nice the grandkids love to try to sing and we all have fun with this and cant wait till the 4th of july when we get together and get it out and sing. I would recomend this to anyone that has children and grandkids to get them started to learn to sing and wont bother them if they cant at least they will have fun trying but it is a good product to use thanks
This game is great for parties! Even people who don't usually sing seem to like to tackle the songs. My friends and I are very competitive and thrilled at the chance to unlock "trophies" and other songs. I fell in love with it before I even had a copy of my own!
At first I had trouble setting this up to use on the Wii. I contacted customer service and even though it is only by email, the response was prompt and VERY HELPFUL. We had been making a simple mistake. It turned out it couldn't have been easier and we are having a blast with it.
We purchased this to use on the Wii because the American Idol version didn't have enough non current songs making it hard for everyone but the kids to play. I couldn't find this anywhere so was thrilled to be able to get it on e-Bay.
