Karaoke Revolution

So, I purchased the awesome video game Karaoke Revolution on Saturday, because we were having a birthday party for my sister in law, and she's good at singing and I thought it would be fun.

I had no idea just how fun it would be. This is one enjoyable game. It comes with a microphone that plugs into the Gamecube, and then runs this vocal analyzer that judges your pitch and timing and scores you accordingly. This description doesn't quite do the game justice, it's just a blast. We had like 8 people all playing and it was so much fun.

I've played it for hours since. You can sing duets if you have two microphones. You can play volleyball against each other, moving your players around by singing higher and lower notes. You can screetch along with Aerosmith or croon along with Whitney. Drew got a perfect score while singing Pain by Jimmy Eat World.
My 6 year old daughter really kind of rocks the score when she sings Uptown Girl by Billy Joel.

There are 4 levels of judging difficulty, easy, medium, hard, and expert. I can get perfect scores on easy. Still score platinum level on medium and hard, but wow I have to work on expert still. . . if you use and vibratto at all it thinks you've lost the pitch, which is kind of a flaw of the game I think but well I just have to adjust and show them who's the karaoke star here.

You have to try this game out. it's fun.
