Summary: Parents need to know that this game contains very little objectionable material beyond some mildly suggestive lyrics. Players may customize their characters: Kids may choose sexy clothes for their performer, or create a somewhat stereotypical character (an overweight woman in a bathrobe and curlers, for example).
Excerpt: The core gameplay is almost identical to last year's game, other than the fact that you can now choose any song and venue right out of the gate. New items and songs are unlocked based on how many platinum albums you've gotten, and not by clearing a specific "area" like previous games. It's not really any better than the way it was; it's just different. If you're unfamiliar with how the game is played, well, it's karaoke.
Excerpt: Karaoke Revolution Party looks good, just as the previous iterations have looked. The characters you can choose from (all new selections, by the way) are all modeled nicely. The new features this go round are the extreme customizability for your characters. Now, instead of having two or three outfits plus some unlockables, you can totally customize your character.
Conclusion: Great variety in song types, but the same old issue of actually knowing and liking the songs inside and out stands. The game lives up to the Party moniker if used in those situations, but as a single-player experience, it's a bit weak.
