|comment          = The game is completely playable. On hardware mode, objects sometimes get in the way of lyrics. This is a problem on three out of eight levels. However, it is not a problem on software mode, which can be easily run by any modern CPU. Software mode also produces another graphic error on the top left corner of the screen. However, this does not get in front of lyrics and is very minor. The "rappin' bad" effect is missing on both hardware and software mode and the same effect is also missing from the intro movie sequence.  On PCSX2 version 0.9.7 and below, aggressive EE cyclerate hacks (50%) must be enabled to get through the intro menu sequence. On these versions, although, any level past level 1 is not playable due to freezes on scenechanges ("Cool" mode not confirmed because while in "Cool", the level only remains in one scene).
