A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

Characters come in a range of colors and shapes.

Violence & Scariness
Language
Consumerism

Players need a headset/ microphone at least -- also they need a dance pad and Eye-Toy to be able to use everything here. Some ads for Konami and Dand Dance Revolution. Also, peppered with fictional ads and stores.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this game contains very little objectionable material beyond some mildly suggestive lyrics. Players may customize their characters: Kids may choose sexy clothes for their performer, or create a somewhat stereotypical character (an overweight woman in a bathrobe and curlers, for example).

What's it about?

This game is very much like previous versions of Karaoke Revolution: Players croon along to popular tunes, scoring points for hitting the right notes. Choices in this installment range from Beyonce to Tony Bennett. The biggest change: With the addition of a dance pad, KARAOKE REVOLUTION PARTY players can strut their stuff while they sing.

There are Mini games (like getting characters to successfully stage-dive), lots of unlockables, cool ways to customize characters, and fun environments in which to perform, including a very trippy music video. Players can even use their Eye-Toy to check themselves out.

Is it any good?

Dancing while you sing is amazingly difficult to do, and quickly becomes a cardio workout. Players are advised to start dancing in easy mode and work up to the harder stuff.

This is a great title for parties and family gatherings over the holidays (up to eight players can participate). Just be careful not to trip on the headset cord in the middle of a performance -- that's not a very glamorous move, and it's sort of easy to do.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how difficult it is to sing and dance at the same time. Do you have new respect for pop star performers who manage to do both? Do you blame the ones who lip-sync?
