Being both a vocalist and a fan of all things Bemani, I was very (albeit secretly) excited to see this game. For the most part, I wasn't disappointed when I started playing: the game is fun, innovative, the scoring system is surprisingly accurate and the mic adapter works well.
The game does, however, have a score of problems.
1) The included mic is terrible. You can, however, easily scrap a mic from a cordless/cellular phone.
2) The game is very, very unforgiving if you try to sing any of the songs in a different octave. Given that songs for both male and female voices are included, this is more than a little problematic.
3) Just like DDR isn't really dancing, Karaoke Revolution is not really singing. Attempting to sing any of the songs like they're actually recorded will usually result in a bad score. Vibratto will almost always drop your score, and the songs are imperfectly programmed, so you have to pay attention to the visual representation of sustained notes in order to cut off at the appropriate time. None of this should be a problem for the average user, but as a vocalist I was surprised (and not surprised) by the limitations of the game.
But hey, it's a fun game, and a kick at parties (if you can live down the fact that you own it in the first place).

Does anyone besides me see a problem here? I am a huge DDR fan and have been for years. I was so excited when I heard Karaoke Revolution was coming out. After all, how could it be bad with all that cool Bemani music? Well, I was wrong about a few things there. First of all, NONE of the music is Bemani, which means no more cool DDR music. I had assumed that DDR-inspired songs might be included, or at least some cool JRock/Jpop/Europop! Maybe even the Smile.dk songs that have been constantly excluded from the American DDR games could have been included. That was the second thing wrong with this game. All it is is terrible American popular music, and that disappointed me highly. I personally can't stand Michelle Branch or any of those whiny untalented American pop artists. This game is marketed to the American masses, not the true DDR fan. I'm sure the gameplay itself is a lot of fun if you ignore the songlist. If you love DDR, don't buy this game. If you love popular American radio music, be my guest.

Why is this game so fun? I never even liked Karaoke! This game is a blast. We played it for 7 1/2 hours the first night, then we woke up early the next morning and continued to punish our lungs and ears. If you have ever sung in the shower or your car, you will probably like this game. There were three other non-family members over the house when we bought the game, and they all played. Up to eight people can play together in arcade mode. There are a couple of ways to adjust the difficulty so everyone can have fun. First, the songs have three levels of difficulty. Then you can adjust how "loosly" the game "listens" to your voice. To help coach you along, several things happen at once on the music staff that scrolls by, but it's simple to use. The music staff tells you when to sing the words, if your singing the right note and whether your notes need to go higher or lower. You can sing in a higher or lower octave and the game will pick up your notes just fine. A perfect singing voice is not required to play, you dont even need a GOOD voice to play. If you can judge timing and slightly carry a note you can compete and win. We had young kids playing and even with their flat voices and frequent dismissals from the stage they were able to have a great time. Buy this game.

I was a bit reluctant to try this game, since the thought of singing in front of other people was less than appealing. However, once I put on the headset and the music started, my whole attitude changed.
By singing in tune and along with the proper cadence, you score points that can be used to unlock new characters, songs, bonus videos, and character outfits. Each song has a "difficulty level", and believe me ... "Ladies Night" is a lot more difficult than "Kiss Me". This can be a bit frustrating for younger children. You can choose the difficulty level to help overcome this issue - it can "go easy" on you, but if you're too bad, you can actually be booed off stage. Funny when it happens to my wife -- but my 7-year-old doesn't find it too funny.
Make sure you understand which songs are on the disc, and that you like them. (Although even the songs you don't like tend to grow on you after you've belted them out a few times...) There's a good cross selection from the 70s, 80s, 90s and today, with a little over 30 songs total. Different styles are included as well, although most songs are ones that charted in the Top 40, and the selection is a bit skewed toward late 90s & early 2000s.
Despite a few minor shortcomings, this game is tight, and with 1-8 players, it's a great group or party game, and can be used by the whole family, or a group of friends.
One final note -- the headset that comes with the packaged set is a bit small. If adults plan to use the game, you probably want to buy the game by itself and spring for Sony's headset -- it's a bit bigger and seems to be a little more solid.
