Lips 

 

Lips is a singing game on the Xbox 360 that includes music from a wide range of styles and eras. Every singing game hinges upon the selection of songs. One thing Lips has going for it is the ability to download songs that can be added to the main game. The two wireless microphones that come with Lips is one of the coolest aspects of this game. Young MC, Depeche Mode, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Weezer, Ramones, Duffy, Duran Duran, and Radiohead are some of the bands/singers included in this singing game compilation.

There are plenty of bright colors, and even some safe music videos included in Lips. Unfortunately there are a lot of images that are not safe in Lips. There are enticement to lust images, and some violent images. Keep Lips away from children, unless you want to have to explain why people are moving around like that. To be honest I can see few reasons to move around like some of the dancers in certain music videos. I am not convinced letting teenagers (trying to control their hormones) watch this content is good either.

If the graphics were not problematic, and requiring a lot of supervision, the lyrics get really bad in some songs. I want to be clear there are some songs with safe lyrics in Lips. There are others that contain sexual lyrics, and the world view that has led millions to contract diseases, destroy families, or other such ills upon society.

The ability to download additional songs is one of the things that give Lips some legs in terms of replay. What holds this Xbox 360 game back is a lot of the songs included. I remember a few from my youth, and a few more from my historical studies in music. There are few songs in this game that I actually enjoy listening to though.

Lips is really cool when it comes to the microphones. I enjoy singing/talking into the microphone and hearing my voice come out of the television set. The game does a good job of translating my tones to the on screen grader. I had fun playing Lips for a few minutes, and found playing with more than one person is also entertaining.

Lips contains a lot of lessons, most of them have already been touched on. Many years ago I used to be enslaved to some of the lessons contained in a lot of songs included in Lips. Christ freed me from those oppressive chains, and I can easily see the problems with accepting those old lessons.
