Would've been better with full dlc(because of the lawsuit).
29 May 2012
Summary: Surprisingly enjoyable, I originally bought it for the mics and the price! If the total catalog of dlc was available this would've been a stellar game for me. Lawsuits suck when they hamper a good game.
Summary: I purchased this bundle after playing it at a friend's party. My only disappointment is that there aren't adult and child settings so lyrics can be altered. I also am having problems connecting to the "Def Jam Store" within the game. Overall it is a lot of fun though as a party game.
Summary: This game has a great presentation. And it works very well. I could find no bugs or quality issues here. I'd also mention right away that the game is a blast and you should definitely invest in it. You'll find the ability to freestyle over each instrumental track. You can turn real song lyrics off and on while you play. There's two-player and duet capability. Actual music videos back each track. There's a practice mode that lets you pick which verses you want to rap.
Summary: I love the concept of Rapstar and the fact that I can now enjoy some of my favorite rap songs a-la-Guitar Hero, but the game is not without a few slight disappointments. While the game is tons of fun and I'd never get tired just rapping (no guitars, drums, turntable, keyboard, etc), the game is censored, and somewhat oddly so. There are references to alcohol and weed that are kept in, while some are taken out and I'm really not sure why.
Summary: It's excellent, but short. As a party game: 4 stars. As a 1 or 2 player experience, 3 stars and here's why: Everything it does, it does well. It has an excellent selection of hip-hop with a few modern hits thrown in to not make it feel entirely old school. It's definitely skewed toward the old school and hip hop greats. There's even a track with no video, cus they just couldn't live without that hit. The word recognition is phenomenal.
