Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the song lyrics featured in Karaoke Revolution Glee tackle some suggestive themes. Aside from a reference to wine in "Don't Stop Believin'" the references are mostly sexual. Clips from the TV show play in the background and sometimes show suggestive dance moves, especially in provocative songs like "Push It."
What's it about?
After tackling American Idol, Konami's next Karaoke Revolution spin-off is KARAOKE REVOLUTION GLEE. Using the included USB microphone, players can sing along to 30 musical numbers from Season 1 of the hit TV show including "Defying Gravity," "Proud Mary," "Imagine," and "Don't Stop Believin'." The game features a scrapbook mode where players earn badges for stellar performances, and a Quick Play mode that lets a second player plug in an extra microphone and join in. Performances feature footage from the TV show showing cast members singing and dancing in the background. The game comes packaged with a USB microphone for $59.99, or by itself for $39.99.
Is it any good?
Fans of the Glee TV show will get a kick out of the chance to sing alongside their favorite characters and watch the extended video montages from the show that complement each song. Scrapbook mode allows players to search for songs by their favorite featured soloist: Finn, Rachel, Mercedes, Artie, Puck, Kurt, Quinn, Tina, and Will. Musically, the songs are all slickly arranged and fun to sing. "Gleeks" will love this game.
