If you've played some of the other Karaoke Revolution games before, the format for this title will be very familiar to you. I have Karaoke Revolution Party for the Gamecube, and this game is very comparable to that title. Interesting American Idol videos showing past contestants' performances can be unlocked by achieving various goals.

My only complaint is that you apparently are able to download more songs on the X Box and Playstation versions, but not the Wii. Given that the Wii can connect to the Internet, I don't understand why this feature was left out.

Most importantly, here is a list of the 40 songs available. Three of them (More Than a Feeling, Over the Rainbow, and What is Love) have to be unlocked by achieving various platinum record amounts. There is a cool menu feature under "Extras" that show all the unlockable items and what is required to get them.

I played Karaoke Revolution on the PS2 a lot (I love doing karaoke) and enjoyed it. But, I have a Wii, so I was excited when Karaoke Revolution came out for the Wii.

The simplest way to describe Karaoke Revolution is "Match the pitch and timing of the song to score points." When you choose a player, and choose a song, the song scrolls across the bottom of the screen. Above the song's lyrics, the game shows a simplified music staff with empty note tubes. These tubes indicate a pitch for the phrase.

You fill the note tubes by singing the correct pitch at the correct time into the microphone (you may transpose the song up or down an octave if necessary). After a few phrases, the game shows a mark on the display---and the more notes you hit correctly, the higher you score.

If you enjoy karaoke, this game is a lot of fun. The game even has what it calls "True Duets", where 2 people (2 microphones needed). With True Duets, two people each sing a part.

For a greater challenge, there are 4 difficulty levels. The higher the difficulty level, the more notes you need to get right in a measure, and the more accurately you need to hit each pitch.

To keep things fresh, there are several modes of play, ranging from "Quick play" (just pick a song and go), to various lengths of "American Idol" contests. There are also several ways 2 (or more) players can be involved, such as head-to-head battle, both take part in an American Idol contest or a knock out.

If you wondered "How would I do on American Idol?" this game partially fulfills that fantasy---the 3 famous judges are there and judge you based on how well you do.

So what is the down side with the game?

We have had such great fun with this one. It does go easy on the judging but since there are not a lot of recent songs the kids know, I am glad for that. That being said, I wish there were more songs. We have already unlocked the extra songs. I wish there were more of the recent songs also. While for us adults, Bohemian Rhapsody is a fun song to try these songs are difficult for younger children to sing. The song selection seems more geared toward the 35-45 crowd.

I bought this as I was trying to get more out of my Wii than just bowling, and I enjoy singing, but I'm not much of an America Idol fan.

My only complaint was that I won the competion (8-songs) the very first time I played. I thought it might be a little more challenging, but overall I had a good time.

Song selection is great. However, I learned a quick cheat (which is perhaps why I won.) If you have a song you know and like, you can sing it as many times as you want in the competition. There's nothing that prevents you from singing the same song more than once. I sang Billy Joel's "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me" during the auditions and got a perfect score. So I sang it as my first song in the competition. Got a perfect score again. When it was down to me and one other competitor, I chose this song again, got a perfect score and, hence, won the game.

The bonus items that you can unlock are very entertaining. You'll see some great performances from previous AI competitions. You'll also see some terrible auditions which are good for a laugh.

Definitely a good party game, I'm sure.
