What It Is

A music-based game in which you sing along to words on a screen without any instrument controllers? Sounds odd, doesn't it? Believe it or not, but there was a time not long ago when these types of games, usually referred to as Karaoke, were the only form of music game available. In Lips, you select from 40 different songs and use the included wireless microphones to belt out the tunes. All 40 songs from such artists as Young MC, Duffy, and Peter Bjorn and John are available at the beginning of the game and you can choose any of them right from the start, which is great if you don't want to play through several hours just to reach a favorite song. A wide variety of music genres are included and many songs have the original music videos running behind the words on screen.
