Karaoke Revolution :: Wii Game Review
With 50 songs to choose from and enough variety to suit most people, Karaoke Revolution is a welcome addition to the already robust Wii music scene
With 50 songs to choose from and enough variety to suit most people, Karaoke Revolution is a welcome addition to the already robust Wii music scene. Bands from the Jackson 5 to The Killers to Supertramp to R.E.M. flesh out a robust package that employs accurate vocal recognition technology and fun on-screen visuals for a great karaoke experience.
You Say You Want A Revolution
We can honestly say that the bonuses provided by Karaoke Revolution compared to a regular karaoke machine are great touches. Being able to create your own character and have the vocals recognized as being on pitch, showing your accuracy and score at the end of each song, and having up to 16 people in the game playing with their avatars add quite a bit that karaoke machines don’t have. If you know the song that's playing you'll do great, even if you have the game set to expert!
The Revolution Will Be Televised
With a great track list and some fun times ahead, you'd be crazy not to give this game a try. Having your on screen character dance in time to the music on screen and pose for the cameras in a variety of venues is a much better visual partner to the music than the unrelated video montages or highlighted text that usually accompanies your karaoke experience. Given that it comes with a microphone that you can use for future Karaoke expansion packs and is simple enough for mom and dad to pick up and wail to, Karaoke Revolution should be a no-brainer if you fancy the tunes.
