3.0 out of 5 stars Not really much point for getting the game now. January 3, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
They shut down the DLC store, so you're stuck with the very limited stock of songs they have on the disk. If you want a hip-hop video game, get DJ Hero 1.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like Hip Hop... it's good November 10, 2010

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a karoke game, so it is as fun as you make it. It is best enjoyed among friends at parties. It does a great job of accurately picking up your pitch and words. The song selection includes popular songs with the ability to download more in the future. It is much better than Lips (which is the only other Karoke game I played).

Now if only you could get other genres of music it would be great.

Anyway if you are a fan of hip hop, have friends over a lot you need to entertain, and don't mind making a fool of yourself in front of them...GET IT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old School Memories July 4, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is all about old school rap memories. I didn't know very many of the songs on this game, but it was fun to play the ones I did know. Brass Monkey, Mama Said Knock You Out, Push It, Gin & Juice, and Ain't Nothin' But a G'Thang. Those are the hits, as far as I'm concerned. I think the game is worth buying at a discount for just those songs.

There is a lot of voice/introduction-type voice overs that are a little annoying. It's a little cheesy in the way they put it together. Seems like they must have had a low budget. It's still fun.

Love the game(I've played it before) but for some reason this one keeps freezing and won't let us calibrate the mics so you can never get a good score because your mic is off. It shipped on time but not sure if the freezing and non calibration has to do with it being so cheap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just starting to play... January 25, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
It seems to be a good game. I'm a little disappointed that you have to master songs before you move on to others. But I guess I will just have to keep playing in order to get to the songs I want to sing. Looking forward to playing more.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
We did not expect much for this game because of the low price but it was well exceeded our expectations. It is very fun to play and is enjoyable watching old school videos. It def helps if you have a few drinks in you before playing.

The game itself was in perfect condition. The service was great. Unfortunately i was disappointed with the limited selection of songs, but that has nothing to do with the company.
