Karaoke Revolution Party is another representative of a very popular series of music games. As in the previous titles in this series and as the game title suggests, the player's task is to sing songs according to the on-screen pattern. It is worth noting that the game was created mainly for larger groups of players. Karaoke Revolution Party offers multiplayer modes for up to eight people. Nevertheless, a single player should also not complain about the lack of attractions. The game was released on the most popular models of consoles. The PS2 version offers free support for the EyeToy webcam. The Xbox edition integrates with the Xbox Live service. The Gamecube version is the worst in this respect, offering fun only with a microphone (or several microphones). Harmonix studio is responsible for producing the game, also known for such games as Guitar Hero II, or Amplitude.
One of the main advantages of the described production is a very wide range of available play modes. Some of them are designed for a single player, in other modes we can play in larger groups. Every time our progress is properly assessed. For this purpose, a rather complicated module is used, which evaluates, among other things, the tone or quality of modulation on the basis of the recording. As a reward for further achievements, you can of course unlock hidden modes of play, interesting items (such as new costumes), or platinum discs, which are the most valuable trophy of the game.
One of the most serious changes concerns the addition of the possibility of using the dance mat to play. This device can be connected to all versions of the game. In this case, we have to make sure that the correct movements are made. Unlike previous versions, in which we could choose between about thirty songs, this time there are as many as 50 of them. The songs come from many different music genres (rock, dance, pop, etc.). Visually, the game looks extremely good, although everything was constructed in such a way as not to distract the player from singing.
