[edit] Background

Wanna be the next American Idol? Be a part of the American Idol experience with the forthcoming official American Idol video game. Complete with a computer generated Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell, with trademark insults, American Idol is a music-based, rhythm-action game that will allow you to style a contestant for the competition.

[edit] Gameplay

Once you have created your Idol you'll see your contestant through the auditions, various heats and then fingers crossed make it to the grand finale. However, if your contestant squeals and howls out of tune then prepare for heartache as Simon delivers one of his famous comments before you get booted off the show.

[edit] Features

  • Music-based game combines elements of karaoke with the gameplay of Dance Dance Revolution for a new kind of gaming.
  • Get full feedback from the judges, just like on the show - over 4,000 comments from Simon, Randy and Paula, ranging from bad to nice.
  • Players will have to develop their singing skills and refine their dance moves.
  • As they improve their entertaining skills, they'll compete against other contestants for the fame and glory they seek.

This game is also known as Pop Idol in Europe.
