This is a good game if you like rap, (which I do) I can see this as a great party game or if you want to become a master at rhyming your favorite rap songs. If you don't like rap.... I say don't rate the game on that! Rate the game on its Gameplay. To me it has the same value as guitar hero Rock band etc. All in all jump in if your a rap fan, you'll enjoy. (Movies corrupt more kids than music.. think scarface, goodfellas, blow, just to name a few) IMO

We liked this game a lot, but just thought the developers were being less than generous with opening you with only 5 songs. We're keeping the files and definitely want to get this game back when the price drops.

If You're a Fan of this music

If You're a Fan of this music you can probably already recite all the lyrics to all the songs you know without the game's help, on the hardest difficulty, no problem. If you're an amateur rhymer, the game does offer some helpful stats letting you know if your timing or pitch is off. Other than that, though, the game is pretty bare bones, the graphics are pretty bad and look like they are upscaled from 480p, and although the community aspect is promising, as of today (two days after release) there isn't a single video online to rate. The videos range from new releases to early 80's rap, so they are all SD, of course. They are already offering some DLC, so that's a plus. Bottom line, if you're a fan of singing games and you have been wanting to sing rap songs (which most singing games lack), then this is your game. If not, this game is not going to change your mind.
