Positively Awful Game
24 February 2012
Summary: I pulled this game out and attempted to play it. I hadn't played it since I purchased it a few years ago and couldn't remember why. Now I do. What a dreadful game. When I purchased it, I remembering thinking that it was karaoke game and it is not. The controller determines if you are on key or not. This was not fun to me. I will be taking a few games for trade-in tomorrow and this will be one of them.
Summary: You cannot sing along with this game. Do not buy this if you plan on singing along with it. To sing along you must get the Karaoke Revolution version of American Idol. This game is nothting but button pushing on the controller. Microphones don't work with it, the game is misleading, don't waste your money at any price.
Summary: This is NOT a sing along game. It is totally misleading when Amazon shows you that customers who bought this game also purchased the microphone. This game does not use a mic! This is a role playing game, not a sing along. Very dissapointing.
Summary: This is just a flat out horrible game. When I first heard American Idol would be making its debut as a video game, I immediately knew it would be a horrible idea, and it was. Bad bad bad. The fact that the game puts too much thought and effort into selecting a hairstyle and dressing up your teenage Idol character just makes the game stink even more.
Summary: this is the stupidest game i have ever played. do not buy this game if u do then you r very dumb, really it is a waste of time. and also when it is time for america to vote, they just put anybody's name. even if you were the best. and if u sounded awesome, they say no or something. they give you a small selection of songs to choose from. it is either like one or none. i think i wasted my money. i think you should like, sing into a mic, and they start from there.
Summary: If you have a four year old that has, for some reason, an affinity for prefab pop music, then this might be the game for you. For the rest of us, this is a waste of money and time. Wow, you get to choose the costumes and the hairstyles! That is hardly what I call gameplay. As for the gameplay itself --- if you know the difference between a triangle, circle, etc. then you are 90% percent of the way there.
Summary: If you are an American Idol fan then this game is probably gonna be okay for you. But if you want a GREAT karaoke game this isn't the game for you. The game play isn't all that great, the list of songs is lacking and the voice-overs for the songs are even worst. For a great karaoke game look for Karaoke Revolution 1 & 2, both games are great!
