Reality Gaming?

The worldwide interactive video game publishing rights to American Idol, the smash-hit reality television show, have been secured by game publisher Codemasters. Under the license from FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment, joint owners of the blockbuster reality entertainment format, Codemasters will launch an American Idol video game this fall for the PS2 and PC.

American Idol will be a music-based rhythm-action game, allowing players to create, style, train a character and compete as a singer. Each virtual contestant will then choose from more than 40 "top-ten" music tracks to perform for the judges. To ensure the American Idol game experience is truly authentic, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul will be featured as computer generated characters, complete with their colorful commentary.

The gameplay has gamers "singing and dancing with their hands." Match the right combos of buttons to what’s on the screen, and the contestant sings a sweet harmony and dances to the rhythm. Get it wrong and their voice fades and quivers as the judges, and later the audience, grow unsettled. With a track list of 40 international top-ten music tracks to master, players will get full feedback from the judges that will reflect their performance.

Before you make your opinion about this game, have you ever played "Bust a Groove" for the PS1 console? It is a very simular game, and in my opinion very adictive to play head-to-head.
