I love multiplication.com. They have drill type games that are fun for the class, and one called "Quick Flash" that is great practice. They also have online quizzes that can be printed out and automatically time the student. Quizzes are both fact family based and cumulative.
I agree that the competitive element really works! My students must pass the online quiz in 3 minutes to "beat the level". They get a prize at level 6, 9 and 12.
Songs work, but when kids get to 4th grade they can't answer 3 x 8 without singing the song all the way to 8!
My kids also like playing each other with multiplication games on Mathplayground.com and other sites.
