Summary: Lips: Number One Hits is Microsoft and developer iNiS’ follow up to their 2008 karaoke title, Lips. Known as much for having the best microphones on the Xbox 360 as it was for having great party gameplay, Lips was a decently strong contender in the increasingly crowded music/rhythm genre.
Excerpt: It's pretty hard to break the iron clad grip of Singstar in the console world but it's good to see that Microsoft are still trying and with that, Lips Number One Hits is the latest game on the 360 to bring karaoke goodness to your home.

Fantastic karaoke, but adult themes in lyrics and videos.

Summary: Parents need to know that this fabulously made, highly entertaining karaoke game features the actual music videos for most of the songs it includes. Those videos often feature scantily clad women, sexual material, suggestive dancing, and sometimes cussing, drinking, smoking, and references to drugs.
Summary: I am a karaoke fiend. Whenever I happen to have the night free when karaoke is happening at the local watering hole, I am dialing and texting my friends to see who I can drag along to witness me make a fool of myself.
Summary: Lips: Number One Hits is a souped up track pack masquerading as a full-price retail game. While there have been some noticeable improvements, those who want a fun karaoke experience should stick with the original game. Unfortunately, Number One Hits is a "must buy" for Lips devotees only.
Pros: New in-song multiplier is fun, Improved navigation, Loads of DLC
Cons: Questionable track list, Only comes with one wireless mic, No online competitive play, DISC SWAPPING!
Conclusion: Little more than a cash in on the first Lips and one that I would only recommend for people who do not own the original, but even then you are hard done to as you would be missing out on better songs and more achievements. Madness.
Excerpt: While the SingStar franchise has been tearing up the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 for a few years now, Xbox 360 owners didn’t get their first official karaoke title until Lips hit the system last year.
