Make sure that you like the selection of songs that comes with the game. I thought ~30 songs would be too small but because of the game element where you are trying to perfect a song, I was not bothered by it too much. Plus, I hope that the Expansion disc if they ever put one out will have 50+ songs.
Anyway, the first day I bought the game, my wife and I compete with me singing Celebration and her singing Don't Know Why by Norah Jones and she ended up kicking my butt. It was probably the most fun both of us had together with the PS2. Can't wait to have people over and have a contest.
Word of caution: the Logitech headset that comes with the game is either too small or not as good as the Sony one. It fit my wife (whose head is pretty small) well, but since I have a bigger head, it was kind of hard to get it to fit right. I ended up having to hold the mic portion of the headset close to my mouth in order for the sound to register properly.
I'm really looking forward to the expansion disks, and hopefully, a more sensitive microphone. The one that comes with the game (and I'd rank it a 4.5 if I could) is not sensitive enough (and I proved it by having the thing pressed against my lips and it still not picking up some pitches, even with the mike sensitivity at maximum). Also, if you're female, with a fairly high voice, the microphone won't always pick up on phrases with low pitches. According to the booklet, if you sing an octave above or below that phrase, you won't be penalized, but it's also very hard to jump octaves when you're comfortable in a certain range.
Overall, I'd rank the game itself with 5 stars. But, because of the microphone, I'd give it a 4.5. The mike I'd rank at 3. It's too small for some people's heads (indeed, my boyfriend tried it on, and he had a hard time getting the mike to fit right), and the mike really isn't all that sensitive, even with the sensitivity boosted.
It's a really fun game, though, especially when you have people over, and they would like to try it out. I enjoy DDR more, but that's because I feel like I'm actually exercising, not just singing and bobbing to music. It's still a difficult game, even for someone who's been trained.
The first thing I learned is that many of the songs you thought you knew - you don't. The game's versions of the songs, at least the ones I've been through thus far, seem to be very accurate and close to their original verisons. I expected to hear more karaoke-style versions, but was pleasantly surprised with their "real" sound.
I've also read on message boards that people are disappointed in the graphics. I think the graphics are fairly good, especially considering they matter the least anyway. The singers, particularly the girls, move realistically, and their movements seem to echo the tone of the music for the most part. I also like the system of adjusting volumes. In the game, you can press the square, circle, triangle, and x buttons while you are performing to adjust the music volume (background music through your speakers), the microphone volume (your own voice through the speakers), vocals volume (singer's voice through the speakers), and the headset volume (your own voice through the headset). In this way you can really fine-tune what you're hearing, and make a great-sounding performance.
I personally have not had too much of a problem with the headset microphone. These types of microphones are designed to be placed very close to (practically in!) your mouth. When I have the microphone properly positioned, I never get poor registration in the game.Read more ›
Thankfully, Konami realized this and put in a good mix of songs, at least some of which you have heard (unless you lived in a cave for seveal decades...) There're probably at least five songs on there you know. You can always find the song list online if you wish, just note that some songs need to be unlocked by beating songs/reaching score goals. The ability to add on "Expansion Dics" is also an interesting feature, but we'll see if this is a tease or if Konami will put out a good selection to make the 69.99 investment worthwhile.
The difficulty is varied as well, with different settings for strictness in judging, and how much you need to sing before one "step" is completed with a "great" result.
Appreciated greatly are also features for adjusting the mic sensitivity, although that could be fine tuned a bit to have less blunt settings. Another feature that deserves praise is that you can select volume for the lead singer, music, mic, and how loud the song plays in your headset.
Now to the negative bits of the game.
One thing I've noticed is that one has the ability to mumble in the correct key and not actually sing audible words and still manage to hit combos. While that might be a legitimate technical limitaiton, it's discouraging to have someone score higher than you, but not actually sing anything.
There could have been a much better story that might have gone with the "Showtime Mode".Read more ›

All ages will like playing this game. It is very challenging because the judging is sometimes really tough. It gives you a chance to do a practice round first at least! Read morePublished on January 4, 2014 by B. Suzanne Murray

This game was a lot of fun. The microphone headset works great. The only downside is I wish it had more songs... but I guess that is what sequals are for. Read morePublished on December 15, 2004 by Mr. Darcy
It's a pretty fun game. It doesn't have a whole lot of songs, maybe around 30-40, but the ones that it does have are fun to sing and are songs that generally a lot of people know,... Read morePublished on July 27, 2004 by Bonnie
