My friend and I are huge HSM fans and we had a blast playing this game. You do need a mic but luckly I already had one and we spent hours playing it. Any HSM fan should have fun no matter if your hitting the right note or not and no matter what age you are, my friend and I are in our twenties. FUN, FUN, FUN
First off, you need a microphone to play the game- but we already owned one from buying boogie(which was a horrible game). This game is so much better than that. My kids Love high school musical, so I know the songs as well as they do. I find myself singing along while they play. You can do story mode which goes through some of the songs in the order of the movie. Once you get through a few- you win additional songs. You can also choose to play whichever songs you like from the main menu. My kids don't want to send it back, but I think hsm3 coming out soon will be one to buy since it will have songs from all of the movies on it. If you have a microphone, and you like this movie- it's a lot of fun!
