A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
While the songs might contain some words inappropriate for young children, the game teaches children the power of expressing themselves through music.
Positive Role Models
There's the usual high school drama subtext in the clips shown, but the characters are all generally upbeat. It also showcases a wide variety of races, body types, and genders.
Ease of Play
If you can read the lyrics and have even a slight sense of rhythm, learning to play is easy. Hitting the notes and pitches is a little more challenging, though.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Several of the lyrics in the songs can be a bit suggestive, particularly some from "Bad Romance," such as "I want your psycho, your vertical stick". The clips from the show that play in the background also feature characters performing provocative dance moves.

Some song lyrics contain "damn" or "hell". The one most likely to raise eyebrows is the regularly repeated "Hope it gives you hell" from the All American Rejects song.

The game is based on the TV show Glee, and can be viewed as a marketing vehicle for the Fox televison series.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 2 is a music game based on and using songs from the hit Fox TV series Glee. Players sing lyrics that scroll across the bottom of the screen while clips from the show (essentially music videos) play in the background. The lyrics are toned down somewhat (for example, some questionable lines from "Bad Romance" have been removed), but there are still some words that might be objectionable. And some of the dance moves could be considered risque.
Is It Any Good?
If you like Glee and you find yourself humming its songs after it airs (or rushing to iTunes to buy a copy for yourself), you will absolutely love Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 2. The game is a greatest hits version of the show, letting you sing along with Rachel, Finn, Puck and the rest of the cast on such memorable songs as Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and Rick Springfield's "Jesse's Girl". Fans will be especially happy that the game includes duets with Neil Patrick Harris' Bryan Ryan character and Jonathan Groff's Jesse St. James. Even if you can't carry a tune in a bucket, the game is forgiving and, worst case, Gleeks will have a lot of fun rewatching the videos from the show.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
