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.

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 annoying...BUT...it 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!
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.
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!!)
It's just like the TV show and loads of fun with your friends!! :o)
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!

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. Read morePublished on June 27, 2008 by Frequent Amazon Buyer

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! Read morePublished on January 17, 2007 by D. Levy
