Summary: This game is fun but not as good as the American Idol games. Yes, you can sing duets if you have 2 mics. But, on solo mode, you can only, I repeat ONLY, sing as the male part. You CANNOT sing the female part solo. Now, that's lame in my opinion. So, if you like High School Musical and you are 1)male, 2)female but don't mind singing the male parts or 3)plan to always sing duets, then this game will entertain you.
Summary: We bought this for my daughter at Xmas, and she loves it. She has always been into singing, and she has spent many hours with this game. The only beef I have with it is the grading system seems a bit easy. Although my daughter loves getting A+'s, she got kinda bored with getting them every time. But there were some cool features such as song and dress unlocks and what not. She still has her friends come over and play this game with her.
Summary: It's not going to be worth it if you pay more than $10--including shipping (I paid less). Don't get me wrong, this is not to say I don't love HSM and the songs--that's why I have it, for the karaoke. But other than being able to sing along like a karaoke CD this game has about zero going for it. Cons: *The graphics are laughable. Laziness is exemplified in the whole design of the game. I've got N64 games that look better than this.
Summary: It's a bit difficult for her and we only have one mic to play with right now but I think our greatest problem is that it's not age appropriate for my household. She is too young and we are too old!
Great for kids who are not interested in how the game looks

Summary: I bought this along with Sing it. My 5 year old daughter is a HUGE HSM fan. While the game play is good enough for a 5 year old the story and graphics are not there. First of all you the graphics look alot like American Idol. Some background with which ever character you choose. It was a little disappointing when the song that my daughter loves takes forever to unlock if you are like me and sing like a frog and kids only want to sing the songs they know...
Summary: So here's the deal with this one... I'm a huge HSM fan and I was super excited to get this game and to sing along like the rockstar that I am. However, when you start to choose who you want to be and you start singing.. it automatically gives you the lower octives and harmonies for the male instead of the female. I know others have said you can kind of tweak it to make you sing either both parts but this should not have to be difficult to sing the part that you want.
Summary: I guess the hype for this was too much. When my 5 year old received it she loved it but it was annoying that you really couldn't figure out who was supposed to sing when you played with two players. She didn't really ask to play it as much as I thought she would. She said "that's all you do? is there anything else?" I guess we both expected there to be...well...more to it. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and if you want to just sing all the songs then get it!
