      a game for the pop idol in you

      Lips is a video game for the Xbox 360, 4 people can play at any one time, microphones are wireless. Users can create a profile and use it to keep track of their progress, and friends progress while using the game. Each game disk comes with 40 tracks to choose from and more available to download using Microsoft points.

      Various modes are available on each track like Time Bomb (a glass fills with water on the screen the more you sing, a bomb is also ignited, tilt the microphone as you sing to pour the water over the flame), Kiss ( a couple are standing apart, the more you sing the closer they get together, keep the good work up the longer they kiss thus more points for you, and Vocal Fighters Sing better than the other player to bathe in the spotlight, keep it up to kick your rival of the stage and and win the round. all modes can play singular vs the computer or with a challenger. Most songs also come with the original artists recorded video.

      Users gain points by singing at the correct time, and for the correct length of time, also by using the microphone when required for gestures, eg tilt microphone when bonus bar is full to gain double points until the time runs out.

      Songs on this disk include, Alicia Keys No one, Chris Brown With you, Spice Girls Wannabe, Lupe Fiasco Superstar, It's raining men Geri Halliwell plus 35 others.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for multi player and young children

      This game is probably one of the best kareoke type games out, and has quickly become the game I play when with a friend and we get bored of guitars.

      Lips is primarily a kareoke game, it either comes with mics or without (can be bought seperately if mics are already owned) and covers a wide variety of genres (from Spice Girls to Nirvana) There are also different difficulty levels, so if you're feeling like a diva, you can sing to your heart's content, as long as you hit the notes. THere are also moves you can do to set off special features, which increase your score and also give you starts, which add up and push you higher up the levels of the game (I think I'm on Sunday Crooner or someone similar to that)

      You can also choose to use the original video, or to use one mocked up by the game, and how the lyrics are shown on screen. Across the top is the score counter, and along the lyrics are special features (like length note is held, number of stars, gauge to star power) and stuff like that.

      The game is really good for all ages, but it can be a little tricky to set up the mics.

      If your staying in on a Saturday night this is what you need!

      This is my guilty pleasure! Lips is one of the best party games to be released on the xbox. After playing on singstar for the playstation I waited for the day the xbox would catch up. It could have gone horribly wrong and yet it didnt! Although the initial cost with the microphones can seem quite pricey, it is definately worth it! The songs on this disc are good and the ability to purchase more online is even better. The music is a great range for people of all ages and with the ability to purchase more songs online everyones happy! Not only is there music lips gives you the chance to do a few simple moves while singing, which can be a great way to have a laugh.

      The only downside to this purchase was that after a few months of owning it one of the microphones broke. Though this was probably from a bit too much throwing it around and dropping it on a wooden floor rather than the actual microphone itself being the issue. I did feel slightly cheated in the fact that the product could have been a bit more resiliant. However saying that I just went and bought another mic without hesitation!

      The only other downside to this game I can think of is the amount of money you can spend updating your music catalogue online!

        not very good value for money

        As an idea this is a good product however depending on what age group you are you might struggle to enjoy it. I have played this with younger people and older people however and there was a distinct shortage of songs for each age groups and the songs that are on it are pretty poor. The microphones are really pretty and flash and it adds to the feel of the game however the sound that you get from them is poor and there is a limited array of effects you can put on them. I think if you were going to invest in a product like this you might be better off just saving more money and putting it towards something like Rock Band as this would give a wider range of things to do on it as once you have sung the songs once they get fairly monotonous. All in all not a great product.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A flawed product

        Lips is Microsoft's answer to Sony's Singstar series, where players warble along to songs and are graded according to performance. It can be played with up to four players playing in a variety of song modes. The question is, does it work?

        The answer isn't clear-cut unfortunately. I bought this for my girlfriend for £49.99 from HMV and having looked around a bit more, it can be bought for as cheap as £39.99 so have a shop around! (and possibly don't leave all your Xmas shopping til the 24th!)

        For your money, you get the game and two USB mics. According to the manual, the mics can also be used with Guitar Hero and Rockband, which may be of use to some. These mics do require AA batteries to operate as well. I found them easy to set up and activate with the Xbox.

        Included with the game is also a download code to claim five free songs from the Lips store. On entering my code, my Xbox downloaded a file and then nothing happened and I couldn't find the file it had downloaded. Upon trying to re-enter the code, I was told it had already been claimed, which left me a little miffed.

        The game comes with forty songs, ranging from the good (Roxette- The Look), the bad (Timbaland- apologize, that Akon song) and the ugly (Touch my body- Mariah Carey). To gain more songs, you can buy the other disc, although you can't apparently buy single songs from it off the Lips Store which is ridiculous, or shop in the Lips Store. Songs cost 160 odd points, so about £1.25, which is the song along with the original video, which is a nice touch.

        The track listing includes:
        * "California Love" by 2Pac feat. Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman
        * "Don't Matter" by Akon
        * "Barbie Girl" by Aqua
        * "The Tide is High (Get the Feeling)" by Atomic Kitten
        * "Loser" by Beck
        * "Don't Phunk With My Heart" by Black Eyed Peas
        * "Heart of Glass" by Blondie
        * "Love Generation" by Bob Sinclar
        * "Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin
        * "Bubbly" by Colbie Caillat
        * "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay
        * "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club
        * "(I Just) Died In Your Arms" by Cutting Crew
        * "Hey Baby" by DJ Ötzi
        * "More Than Words" by Extreme
        * "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie
        * "She Drives Me Crazy" by Fine Young Cannibals
        * "Broken Strings" by James Morrison feat. Nelly Furtado
        * "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz
        * "Heartless" by Kanye West
        * "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga
        * "The Fear" by Lily Allen
        * "Around the Way Girl" by LL Cool J
        * "Touch My Body" by Mariah Carey
        * "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" by Marvin Gaye
        * "U Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer
        * "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback
        * "Always on My Mind" by Pet Shop Boys
        * "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's

        * "Disturbia" by Rihanna
        * "Millennium" by Robbie Williams
        * "The Look" by Roxette
        * "Oh, Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison
        * "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'" by Scissor Sisters
        * "Push the Button" by Sugababes
        * "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears
        * "I Get Around" by The Beach Boys
        * "Lovefool" by The Cardigans
        * "Apologize" by Timbaland feat. OneRepublic
        * "Ready, Set, Go!" by Tokio Hotel
        Now I am not as clued up on music as I used to be, but I find it hard to justify the inclusion of the likes of Colbie Caillat (she has an oodle of songs on the store too, so obviously some dodgy PR tricks going on somewhere) or Plain White T's. Why have 'Around the Way Girl' when you could have had something like 'Mama said knock you out', not only a better song, but more fun too.

        As a result, unless you splash out at least a tenner extra, it is going to be hard to sing more than a couple of songs before getting bored. Perhaps they should have created theme discs in the Singstar mould instead of trying to create something for everyone, that falls flat.

        The game is nice and easy to navigate, although the song selection screen is extremely irritating as whichever song you hover over, it will play a brief clip, but this plays over and over until you move it or decide. Once a song is selected you can play in versus or duet mode. Versus is simple enough with the highest point scorer winning, but duet appears half finished. For example, Roxette's The Look is nicely split into male and female parts, although the size of these parts is very different, for this song I thought it worked. However, with Paula Abdul's Opposites Attract, you share equal duties of Paula and the Cat. It would be nice to have an option of the type of duet you want.

        Next you can choose to have the original video to sing over or some slightly different backgrounds and game modes. One has a bomb about to blow, and correct notes help to fill a bucket of water to extinguish it with.

        Although I have been critical of the game design, the singing itself is great fun. The volume on the mics can be adjusted, so that the original song still comes through, which is great for those dodgy singers. By shaking or clapping your mic, you activate an instrumental effect, ranging from tambourines to finger clicking, depending on the song. I found that this sometimes takes a split second to register, meaning that you are acting out of step with the song (it is not my sense of rhythm I promise).

        Points are awarded for hitting notes in key and on time and even rubbish vocalists like me can rack up a half decent score. At the end of a song, your points are totalled and you will see how you compare to the rest of the Live community, should you be logged in.

        Make no mistake, this is a game for people with friends, and proved to be a great hit over Christmas. I can't see it being much fun as a solo player, although I am sure some aspiring superstars will find amusement from it.

        If the song choice was better/cheaper then this would be a must buy party game. Unfortunately, I find it hard to recommend a game which costs an extra £20 or so in order to get decent use from it. Without extra content, this disc is found very wanting. The Live community has been assured that new songs will constantly be licensed, but the songs currently licensed are a very strange and curious selection.

        If you have a good few friends, a load of booze and some points to spare, then I definitely recommend this for a giggle, but I have to question the longevity of it.

          Disadvantages

          Godd game with major flaws

          Firstly just like to make clear i bought this game for a friend who absolutley loves karoke. This game is an attractive alternative to its rival singstar on the playstation, with the most noticble advantage being the fact that the mics are wireless, or is it?

          The wireless mics are a great idea, but to get them to actually work and understand them is ridculosly complicated. The instructions arnt clear at all and it resulted in me and 5 other people fiderling for 30mins at a party and everyone getting anoyed. The mics go into diffrent staes, like on, off, standby, syncing, syned, singing, the list goes on and they flash in diffrent colours and patterns depending on which state, such a shame that the instructions dont say what each one means! Another flaw in the software is the volume controll, you are meant to press the right trigger button to turn the voulme up and left button down obviously, and at first this worked fine, but when i booted up the game the second time the voulme just dropped back down again everytime i let go of the right trigger button. I could not work out why and the only fix was to celotape the button down, which is absurd!

          Apart from thease anoying flaws the game itself is pleasent and has a very karoke feel menu system, it has a very good song selection and option to download more from the xbox live market place, which will keep it up to date for longer with all the latest songs. The basic concept is you select a song to sing to and you and a friend sign against each other and are scored on words, pitch and timming to determine who sang the song the best. Lips has also used a few extra bits where you have clap with your mic and do other motions at the right time for bonus points, which makes it alot more fun and means you really have to be concetrating.

          All in all if the problems i listed at the strat could be sorted then this game would be one of the best karoke games out there.

          excellent party game

          This game is excellent. It comes with two mics so you can play in a pair or just use one after the other has run out of battery which is what i do! its an excellent party game. the songs choice is brilliant, with various genres and styles. you can download other songs to sing aswell which is good so the game never gets old or boring. there's different ways you can play the game with different game choices, and different levels to achive which is addictive trying to get to the next level up. you have the choice to play online and you can see where you are ranked in the world. you can alter the mics and the background of the home page and even the instruments you play when you tap the mics. its all all round fun game that never gets boring or old, one you can keep playing for years.

          fun, interactive and brings people together

          this is a good game to play with families friends, in a couple or on your own. It is a good game to get out on special occassions such as christmas or birthdays. This game comes with a whole range of different songs to choose from. You can also buy songs from a list that is always updated with microsoft points. It comes with two microphones, which light up for good affect. There are various modes on the game to try out. These include Coop (where two people play together and try to achieve as many points as they can as a pair), there is Versus (where you play against each other, others inlude beat the bomb (where you are up against a bomb and if you do well it puts more time on) and online against other people. Points are scored for each person for how the individual performs in pitch and rythmn. Also you can score bonus points for shaking the microphone, tapping the microphone as you sing etc. Everytime you attempt a song you are then put on a global leader board to see how well you have done for that particular song. You get medals for different things achieved for the game such as rhythmn, pitch, percussion etc etc
          The ranges of songs on offer let peopl from a whole range of music preferences to sing along too. It is such a good game to invest in for fun.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A Great game especially for parties!!

          I was given this as a birthday present this year from my mum and dad, and pretty much adore it...!

          Lips is a kareoke game (like PS2's Sing It) for the xbox, you get the game of Lips and also two microphones which are wireless.

          The game is very easy to use, just pop in the game and connect the two microphones (or the one if your playing single player), the game then comes on, and you have a choice of around 30 songs to choose from, there's oldies, newies, rock, pop, dance. You then basically start to sing, the song words are on the screen, and you have to try and match the tone, pitch etc of the song, and you get points for how much of the song you get right.

          As I said you do have a point of around 30 songs, but to be honest this doesn't seem like very many if your having a full game, especially if your a little fussy on music, but unlike other games like this one, you can buy new songs off xbox live (you get free bronze membership with your xbox but can upgrade), I haven't actually bought any yet, but they cost around 100 xbox points each, which I think is about £1, but I'm, not 100% sure, so don't quote me on that one...!!!

          The game is very fun....but I must say I get a little shy singing on the game infront of people haha!!! But I do love having a go especially when the alcohol is flowing and I'm with friends!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D

          A great film which is a good laugh when your with friends or at a party!!! ;)

            a 'fun' party game for all to enjoy, not to my taste personally but fans of singing will love it

            before i start this review i have a confession to make.....i absolutely hate this game with a passion!!!!! i bought Lips as a present for my girlfriend and my once beloved xbox360 elite, home of the pinnacle of serious gaming has now been turned into what i would describe as a very very expensive karaoke machine.......

            Lips is basically a karaoke type game which comes with two battery powered microphones. the game as a selection of songs which includes:-

            # Alicia Keys - No One
            # Ben E. King - Stand By Me
            # Beyonce - Irreplaceable
            # Blondie - Call Me
            # Booty Luv - Boogie 2nite
            # Chris Brown - With You
            # Coldplay - Yellow
            # Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
            # Destiny's Child - Survivor
            # Dido - White Flag
            # Duffy - Mercy
            # Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf
            # Editors - An End Has A Start
            # Geri Halliwell - It's Raining Men
            # Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity
            # Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire
            # Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby
            # KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See
            # Kylie Minogue - Love At First Sight
            # Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love
            # Lupe Fiasco (feat. Matthew Santos) - Superstar
            # Maroon 5 - Makes Me Wonder
            # Morcheeba - Rome Wasn't Built In A Day
            # Nirvana - In Bloom
            # Peter Bjorn And John - Young Folks
            # Queen - Another One Bites The Dust
            # Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
            # Ramones - I Wanna Be Sedated
            # Rihanna - Umbrella

            What you basically have to do is select the song you want and then...well, sing! points are scored by being in tune with the song (or at least that is how it is supposed to be - you can actually get a half decent song just by humming the tune but that sort of defeats the point a bit!). there are regularly new songs added from the xbox live market place but you have to pay for them which i think is a little off given you have to shell out £40 for the game!

            there is also a feature that allows you to add songs from your own music library too the selection play list potentially meaning that the list of songs for you to sing could be endless. this comes with a BIG flaw though. basically all this feature means is that the songs you can add just play in the background when selected, so you still hear the lyrics being sang by the singer and there are no words running along the bottom of the screen like the 'official' lips songs, therefore if you don't know the tune word for word then you're going to struggle! another problem is that the points scoring system for this feature is a little, erm.......'sketchy' shall we say!

            the features of the game include a career mode, where you can progress in the game by progressively singing more difficult songs and making it to the top of the 'virtual' charts. co-op is probably where the game comes into it's own. you can each have a go singing you're own songs and see who scores the most, have a one song 'battle' where you both sing the song at the same time and again see who scores the most. there is a also a 'duet' mode where each can sing a separate part of the song.

            for anyone into karaoke or wanting to use this a party game, it fits the bill perfectly. me personally, i will be glad to see the back of it as i'm sick of being made to get up in front of my girlfriend's mates to sing 'it's raining men'........unfortunately for me though i hear that there are more lips games on the way, dear oh dear i have opened up a can of worms..........

              Great to enjoy by yourself or with friends at a party.

              This is an amazing game that has hundreds of hours of playability. The original game is loaded with fourty songs from many different genres of music - there is something for everyone on there. You can also download new songs to sing from Xbox live which keep this game fresh. As I know from personal experience this is great for house parties and dinner parties and many of my friends have found this as addictive as I have. I have never sung karoke as I don't have a good voice but one of the great things about this game is that you can turn the volume of your microphone down to nothing so that it does not get projected through the TV; and with the TV turned up people in the same room can barely here you singing anyway. It also includes original music tracks and videos witht the full vocals on. But at the same time for those of you with a competitive streak will also enjoy this as it rates your performance based on things like you rhythm, pitch and technique. For the ultra competitive, if you are on Xbox live your score will be put into a global leaderboard. When playing the screen not only shows the words you have to sing but also the pitch and for how long you should hold the notes for - very technical scoring - I love it. Singing songs can also give you greater appreciation for them (since having this game I've become a massive Coldplay fan). I would strongly reccomend this game to anybody who has an Xbox and who enjoys having fun.

              Disadvantages

              Great game, especially when played online.

              I was a little sceptical at first about Lips, as it's not really the butchest game I could play. But after months of nagging from my girlfriend, I thought £44.99 was a reasonable enough price (especially for all the rock band 2 and guitar hero metallica fans, who will be happy to know that as of summer 2009, the lips microphones will be compatible with all three games). There is a good range of songs on the game and there really is something for everyone. There are various multiplayer modes such as timebomb which involves singing to earn water which then must be tipped onto a live fuse to stop the bomb from detonating, or you and your friends can challenge each other to see who is better at a particular song.

              Another feature is the online ranking. If you have Xbox live, you can not only download additional songs from artists such as The Pussycat Dolls and The Black Eyed Peas (160 microsoft points each although some song packs can be bought for 440), there is a worldwide leaderboard which ranks you on the amount of points, stars and medals you earn on each song. Look out for HLSalter on 'Buttons' by The Pussycat Dolls, this is my girlfriend's gamertag and last time I checked she was 14th on the world leaderboard.

              For each song you earn stars, medals and points. Stars are earnt by activating star stream (your star stream is determined by how well you are singing the song). There are six different medals - Pitch, stability, rhythm, party, technique and performance. Singing in Pitch obviously get you pitch medals, stability involves holding notes for the neccessary length of time, rhythm involves keeping with the rhythm of the song, party medals are earned by using your controller to add sound effects to the song, technique medals are gained by using the vibrato method of singing which basically means breathing in the right places of the song and making sure your voice is relaxed and finally the performance medal which you can get by simply shaking the wireless mic you are singing on to the beat of the song. The more medals and stars you earn, the more points you will get.

              You can also link up your Ipod and sing your favourite songs although you don't earn any medals and there are no lyrics. But it's great if you just want to sing along to your favourite songs. In conclusion, Lips is a great game for every level of expertise singer and is great way to have some fun with the whole family.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Great party game, not so good on your own

              Background
              I've always been a sucker for karaoke games going back to Singstar on the PS2. Being completely tone deaf when it comes to singing, the ability to give it a go in my own home where I am not going to embarass myself too much has always been appealing.

              When my daughter told me she wanted to get this game, I was in two minds as I didnt think it would offer anything new. I decided to buy it nonetheless.

              In the box
              The game comes with 2 wireless microphones which both take 2 AA batteries which are supplied with the game. These microphones need to be synchronised with the xbox 360 before they can be used. I found this was a bit of trial and error and certainly not as easy to synch as the standard game controllers. I bought my copy from game.co.uk which also came with 800 Xbox Live points which can be used to purchace extra tracks (typically 160 points per track) but can be used to purchase anything from xbox live.


              The game

              The game comes with 40 tracks from all genres and all decades from the 70s up to the present day. While this means the whole family will probably be able to pick a track they are familiar with, it does somewhat limit the number of tracks that younger people are likely to know. There are various game modes you can play. Single / VS mode allows you to play alone or with a friend and sing the whole song together. At the end of the song your points are calculated based on pitch and timing and the winner is declared. My favourite mode is the duo mode where you each sing a piece of the song. Although this mode is fun, it is not really as competitive as one person could have a lot more of the song to sing giving them more opportunity to rack up the big points. Bonus points can be scored by doing preset moves with the microphones when instructed on the screen.
              Unfortunately, the single player mode is not much of a challenge and can be completed in a day. You progress through the levels based on the total number of points you have accrued. A good singer will obviously score higher points per song but a poor singer will still get to the same level, but will just take longer.

              During a song when you aren't singing, you can shake the microphones to play instruments such as the tambourine which adds a little bit more to the game but not a great deal. Other people who aren't singing can also contribute with backing instruments by using the xbox controller triggers and bumpers to play various instruments. Personally, I found that this put me off more than anything although it does give non-singers something to do whilst they are waiting for their turn.
              If you are connected to Xbox Live, you can compare how your scores match up to other users. This is good for getting an indication of how well you are actually performing. Unfortunately this is the only online aspect of the game. It would have been great to duet with people all over the world but alas, its not to be.

              Lips also allows you to sing songs from other music devices such as the iPod. This however doesnt put the words up on the screen whilst singing so its a bit of a pointless feature in my opinion.

              40 Bust A Move - Young MC


              Verdict

              Lips is a very good party game that doesnt really offer much more than any of the other karaoke games on the market. If you own the Xbox 360 and are on the look out for a game in this genre, you certainly wont be disappointed. The game does work best in a multiplayer environment and could have done with more tracks as standard. Even people with poor singing voices such as myself will be able to play this game and get decent scores but only the top singers will make an impact on the live leaderboard.
              There are always new tracks being released each weeks via the Xbox marketplace (on average 3 new tracks a week) so the library will only grow and grow. A new version, 'Lips - Number One Hits' is in the pipeline with no set release date. From what I can gather, this is very much the same as this version, just with different songs so this original version might drop in price making it a much more tasty proposition.

              Thank you for reading. Please take the time to read and rate my other reviews.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Overall a good game for young and old a like

                I love to sing and I love Karaoke! Just a big show off really...so imagine my delight when we got this game plus the two microphones (wireless I might add) free with our new xbox 360!! My fiance on the other hand..not so impressed!! Lol.

                As soon as I got home the console went on, the microphones were synchronised and you couldnt get me off it!!! Even my fiance had a go after he saw how much fun I was having singing and giggle away at myslef. The microphones flash in time to the beat and you can also tap them to sound like percussion instruments. It is a good giggle and good fun when you have like minded karaoke queens (or kings) round for a get together (alcohol can improve your performance immensely) :o)

                The thing I like about this game is the fact that it scores you on your singing technique such as pitch and vebrato and yuo get extra points for this. Also the acheivements are fairly easy I had unlocked about five within the first three songs I sang. The things I don't like about it are the moves it asks you to do during your performance. Its not a terrible idea but your find yourself trying to read the words, do the moves tap the mic and get all th etechniques and you end up looking like a demented chicken...wait...that's actually quite fun!!! Hehe.

                Overall i would say this is a good game whether you're a good singer or just like to grab the mic and gurgle some resemblance to a song we might know it is worth it just for a laugh. Great at parties but not so good by yourself unless you're practising for the x factor.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Good fun for all!

                I am not a big fan of the XBox at all, however I have recently moved into a flat with my Husband 2 Be who has the spare room as his XBox room!
                To try and keep me quiet, and stop nagging him about playing XBox he bought me Lips!!! I love having a good sing-a-long but mostly when I'm in the car or something by myself. I cannot sing at all, so I don't like to inflict it on other people!
                We have played it lots and time really flies once you get going.
                I like the fact they have a variety of songs, and sometimes it's much funnier to sing the ones you don't know!
                The also have several different modes - you can watch the original video, an animated video, or you can play 1 of the 3 games whilst you sing, this is the "Kiss", "Bomb" and "Fight", you can do these either against another person or against the computer if you are playing by yourself.

                Also like the freestyle mode where you can get songs from CD's/IPods etc and sing along, although most don't have the words so pick songs you know well!

                The only thing I do find annoying is that only the person who signs in on the main page gets any achievements, so even if you both have profiles only one of you will get achievements so you have to take it in turns to sign in - although this does mean I'm wiping the floor with my other half!!!

                Can wait till we get an internet connection so we can download a load more songs.
