Hi, my name is Tyrone Williams and I have a
singstar problem! That right, I simply adore the Singstar series and
Sony have released another impressive version that targets the R&B
genre. Just check out the below track listings!
For those who are unaware of this gaming phenomenal, the Singstar series
is basically an interactive karaoke experience on the PlayStation that
allows players to sing a variety of songs in an attempt to be awarded a
number of points of how well they sing the song. To make things even
more interesting, players can also sing duets or even sing duets against each other that
is probably one of the most popular party games to date and with Sony
behind the release, you can guarantee that all the songs are popular
As with all good Singstar games, variety if the spice of life and Sony
have compiled a variety of popular songs from today and yesteryear to
wet the appetite of all fans of this popular genre. Featuring greats
such as Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, to more modern starlets such as
Gwen Stefani and the Pussycat Dolls. Want more? Add in Mark Ronson, Luther Vandross
and Salt 'n' Pepa
and you have a truly holistic approach to the R&B genre that I'm sure
will cause a few squabbles with purists but in the end, Sony have
ensured that the variety allows for a wider playing audience and at the
end of the day, extra longevity.
And if you're lover of the more
commercial and mainstream R & B than you will be audio heaven with En
Vogue, Destiny's Child, Jamelia, Chris Brown and the Black Eyed Peas.
The gameplay of Singstar R & B is almost identical to the previous versions
where gamers are scored on how well they match their words or sounds
with the music and depending on how close or well you do, you are
awarded points to correspond sith your performance.
Needless to say,
it's the entertainment experience that makes the Singstar so
entertaining and even though the graphics are generally just film clips
added with a scoring system, it's probably the best karaoke experience
most of us mere mortals will ever experience that makes the series the
perfect party game.
Although multiplayer is the best aspect of the
series, there is also an entertaining solo experience which I'm sure
many gamers from around the world will enjoy, especially if they believe
they have quite good vocals which many of us don't.
In conclusion, Sony have once again released another entertaining
Singstar title for lovers of the R & B genre. Even though not much has
changed since the original title, the star of the series has always been
the music and once again the music prevails in this high quality
presentation. However with this said, I simply cannot wait for Singstar
on the PlayStation 3 that allows for downloadable content... how's that
