You know the Game Boy Advance was able to handle a variety of great games during it’s time. Whether be it the sidescroller, the rpg, the fighters and what not, GBA had a solid list of games that people simply can’t ignore. Up to the point where they’re considered classics.
Then you have this:
I’m not even making this up
A half-assed attempt of a………a…….I don’t know entertainment? I mean did someone seriously sat down and took their bloody time believing that there would be no problems and flaws with……this…..IDEA?!?!?!?!? Honestly what was the conference like?:
Boss: Okay guys we need a new idea for a game for this new “Game Boy Advance”, any ideas?
Joe: A sidescroller action about a town mystery?
Boss: Sounds fun and original………….NO
Steve: A simple and addictive puzzle game?
Boss: Sounds confusing……………YES
Mark: How about we make a game based off that show “American Idol”?
Boss: YES THAT’S IT, MARK YOU’RE GETTING A GOD DAMN RAISE
But enough with the distractions (though it’s better then playing this), it’s time to explain why this game is crap…………..Lord help me
So let’s explain the gameplay. Simply put there’s a circle where you have to press either A or B or both to match the corresponding commands like the now famous Guitar Hero and Rock band. And that’s it really, it’s a simple concept that’s incredibly boring and repetitive. Up to the point where I literally missed maybe a note or two because of how bored and distracted I was. No seriously I was like:
Me: Wow this game is easy, perfect score here I come-ooooooooooooh butterfl*Misses Note* GOD DAMN IT
But at the same time it’s addictive as hell. I’m not making this up. I simply get addicted to this despite it’s boring gameplay value, I mean it’s like getting addicted to shooting yourself, sure it’s painful but for some odd reason you come back to it………….why? I mean granted it gets faster but in less then two minutes you become the master of this game without any sort of effort. Man I wish life was like that, you become the master of a skill without much effort.
Untrained Apes can master this game with their feet…………….THEIR FEET
The graphics are putrid. It looks like a crappy Windows 98 PC game got stuck in there. I mean………..LOOK AT IT, NO MATTER WHAT SEX YOU PICK YOU LOOK LIKE THE BASTARD CHILD OF FRANKENSTEIN AND CHER. The backgrounds are well okay, they obviously change as you progress from audition to final stage which is a nice feature but nothing to get excited about.
The judges look………..not like them. Simon is okay, Randy looks too fat, and Paula is the most inaccurate of them all because she actually looks attractive in this game………….which is sad if a game version of you is better looking then you in real life.
Then comes the “soundtrack”, it’s crappy half assed version of popular songs released during that time. The “singing” either will sound good or a retarded robot who stutters and slur. It’s actually humorous to hear the crappy singing cause they sound like it’s on purpose…………which is funnier cause I am doing it on purpose……huh.
The thing that kind of ticks me off is that the final level they just go AAAALLLLLL OUT. Like no bs-ing, they just cranked it up to “Extreme” difficulty and expect us to perform this in our sleep. Well apologies developers but I was extremely bored sliding through your “effort” that I didn’t realize you were going to create a challenge anytime soon. It just came out of nowhere.
I mean imagine playing Ocarina Of Time when all of a sudden when you reach Ganon’s castle that everything is a one-hit kill without acknowledgement. You would be annoyed like “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? DO THEY EXPECT ME TO BE THAT GOOD OR AM I MISSING AN ARMOR?”
I also find it offensive that they have some sort of challenge/endurance mode to “Test Your Skills”
OKay are you bloody kidding me?
That’s like having a coke sniffing contest to see who ODs first.
All in all this game is a dumb cash in attempt at the rising popularity of American Idol. Do yourself a favor, don’t play this game. Go watch the actual show or sing some Karaoke with some friends. I guarantee it’s more fun and fulfilling then this game. 1.7/10
well, yeah. answer privtley:3 please and whats up?
I really don’t feel comfortable with this picture request at all XD. I just don’t like to show meself on the internet. Even me FB profile pic is Jersey of my favorite soccer player. And seriously why do u want a pic?
Oh and nm, u?
Uh-huh. But in all honesty people believe beauty is defined simply by looks. But let me tell you if I find a decent looking lass to be fun to hang around with and have a great personality, then that is bloody beautiful.
