Basically, this is a Singstar/Lips (or whatever karaoke game you play) that focuses mainly on the "Rap" Genre. This includes a whole array of music, that spans generations, regions, and styles. Basically there is something for everyone here if you are a fan of "Rap". The system actually works, and it actually works VERY well. It not only matches your timing (whether or not you say the lyrics at the right time) but it actually checks to see if you say the right lyrics. Not only that, it sees if your pitch matches that of the singer (assuming there is singing in the song).
In all, the game works pretty well!
Better than you would imagine. But if you don't know the words to the song, you probably aren't going to pass the song.
The Career Mode is slightly fun, but extremely short.
Party Mode jumps you right into the action
Freestyle mode allows you and your friends to JUST HAVE FUN!
The song is is diverse, but is mainly the top songs over a 20 year period. So some of which you will know and love! Some of which you "know" but aren't 100% sure of what the words are. The song list is pretty solid, and the DLC is pretty great. To top it off, every song comes with its own music video, so the song feels complete. Granted, every song is the Tv release of the song (at the time), so every song is censored for MTV audiences.
This game is tons of fun if you don't mind doing Hip-Hop/Rap karaoke. If you are into this sort of music, then this game is right up your alley. The DLC is good, and allows you to pick songs that YOU know and love. This includes older and newer music.
Although the game works, some modes could be improved. There should just be a mode that allows you to put the songs on random, and just watch the videos. Also, you should be more customization options. Career mode, just feels like something to make the game feel more complete, but definitely lacking. Also, the online experience could be improved greatly. Although this game works well, it feels like there are lots of little aspects that could be improved.
If you've always loved rap and hip-hop, You will love this game. Not only is it well done, but it i definitely loads of fun for the friends and family who love the genre.
ONE MAJOR COMPLAINT: I can NEVER access the store to get the downloadable content. This has to be done within the game, so it's not a Sony problem. That's very disappointing. I hope they get that straight and come out with a new version of this game!
