Product Description

Product Description

Here's your Chance to star in Americas Favorite TV show without leaving your couch.. Keep The rhythem and Compete for pop Super-stardom. Sing, Dance, and Have Fun!


How bad are you expecting an American Idol game to be? Well, strangely enough, it's not nearly that heinous. Basically, Codemasters' first game using its Fox TV license is nothing more than an unpolished, but promising, rhythm title. The judge commentary is repetitive, the clothing options aren't as varied as I'd like, and it only takes a few hours to become America's Idol. In addition, the rewards aren't that great; but the game is solid and the song list isn't as unspeakably painful as one would guess. It's not awesome, but it's also not without merit.

Rated: 6.25 out of 10

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Game Ever! December 28, 2003
A Kid's Review
Ok, this is the most fun game I have ever played!
Alot of people complained because the game wasn't an actual karaoke game and you didn't get to sing, but WHO CARES? the puzzle-like style to the game instead of singing is still fun!
The Competition Mode was pretty easy I'll admit, and I beat it on EASY the first try, but it's alot of fun trying new songs and new clothes...I definately recommend trying all levels of Difficulty, I'm on the HARD level now.
As for glitches...there are some, such as time delays between singing, cheering, the judges comments, etc. and some of the transitions get does not take anything away from the game and you will eventually just get used to it!
The singing is good, the graphics are decent, the sound is nice, and the game is just awesome!
The game is ALOT of fun! GREAT game for an American Idol fan!
I hope they make a 2nd version!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing December 26, 2003
This game leads you to believe you can do "karoke" with it. However, your "voice" is controller operated. I guess you would have to be an "american idol" follower to appreciate this game. We bought it because my daughter loved karaoke revolution and the dance mat games. We're trading it in...

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetically stupid February 10, 2004
By A Customer
I can't believe that a video game based on a show where people sing isn't centered around a mic and players singing. If I wanted to test my eye hand coordination, I'd play a real video game.
I bought this trash for my kids after having Karaoke Revolution for a couple of months. They played it for five minutes and decided they'd had enough. What a waste of money.
If you want a game that judges you on your ability to SING, (you know like the real American Idol) get Karoake Revolution.

2.0 out of 5 stars American Idol December 16, 2003
By Kevin
In this so-called karaoke game, you press controller buttons while you're supposed to sing. But the game really just depends on your controller, and doesn't grade your singing... The only advantage is this game has the music and virtual Simon, Paula, etc and a few live clips with Ryan.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this game! December 29, 2003
I think this game is fantastic - it is a must for any American Idol fan, but I have loads of friends who don't watch the show who are hooked too!! :)
It's great fun for you to play by yourself or in a group of people and Simon is just as scary in the game as on the show (although he's been quite nice to me!!)
Great job!!

This is a great game!! It's so fun!! You get to pick different songs, sing them, judges talk to you. You can dance, sing, and listen to music. You get to choose and make your own singer. Choose there voice, outfit, hair color, size of body, and female or male. You have to buy this game. If you love the show then this is a must- to- have.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is awesome!! December 17, 2003
I got this game just after Thanksgiving and I haven't stopped playing it! It rocks!!
I just love the way you can dress your idol, the closet seems to be endless. All the sets are the same as the show and the fact that Paula, Randy and Simon are in the game is only an added bonus. This is great game and so much fun!!
My friends are all asking to get this for Christmas!
