American Idol: The Game by Electronic Arts is a stylish and entertaining game which brings the popular reality talent hunt show to life on your iPhone/iPod touch!

Don’t miss your chance to play the game where YOU control your musical destiny! Steady yourself for some truthful feedback from the legendary Idol judges, interact with full-motion video characters, and perform hit songs using accelerometer and touch controls. Make choices which influence your future to see if you have what it takes to be the NEXT AMERICAN IDOL!

Kris Allen has become the American Idol 2009 but EA with it’s new launch gives you a chance to win one of the most engaging shows since 2002.

American Idol: The Game has two play modes New Season and Quick Play. New Season progresses just like the actual reality series and with Quick Play you can start by selecting your song and jump into the game.

New Season begins with the Audition Week in the Morning Convention Center, here you are briefed about who you are and what you are supposed to do. Create your player profile by filling out the American Idol Competition Application Form and then you are ready to face the challenge.

The game features full motion video characters who interact with you throughout the game, I am highly impressed with their acting, perfect voice modulation and gestures which gives the game an unparalleled realism and gaming experience. American Idol: The Game covers almost every possible detail from the original show format. As American Idol contestant you will go through close to all events and experiences which Kris Allen or Adam Lambert might have gone through (Hotel scenes, Contestant rivalry, Back stage drama, Rehearsals and much more)

Ryan Seacrest welcomes you in each episode through actual footage from the show. The gameplay is touch and accelerometer based, after you select your song you try to sing the song in perfect tune to impresses the judges (Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson) by either taping or tilting your device to hit the right notes. After your performance you are shown your stats (streaks, accuracy and more) and then get comments on your performance from the judges, which is also an actual footage of various comments based on your performance. The number of votes and comments from judges largely depends on the length of your streaks. Further, you also need to build your Style, Fame, Talent skills and complete various goals by making the right choices during the game.

American Idol: The Game is a fabulous game which successfully recreates the excitement, suspense and a sense of stardom on your iPhone!
