Singstar Singalong with Disney
It's good to see that the Singstar series
is still as strong as ever on the PlayStation 2 and best of all, the
latest incarnation of the series is also compatible with the powerful
PS3. With that said, Singstar Singalong with Disney features some
classic Disney songs from Aladdin to The Lion King that will have
younger gamers clamoring for more.
The biggest change to Singstar Singalong
with Disney compared to other Singstar games is the simplified and "kid"
friendly menu system that is not only easy to navigate but features a
plethora of cartoon inspired colours and Disney themes. Featuring a bevy
of popular Disney characters, children will simply adore the songs
included in this compilation and even some adults will also enjoy the
Gameplay wise, the title is reminiscent of
previous Singstar games that include modes such as Solo, Battle, Pass
the Mic and Duet. For those unaware of the Singstar franchise, gamers
must sing the words to the music and they are awarded points for how
well they have sung. Even though you can hum your way through the game,
to really excel, you need to sing.
When it comes to sings, the title contains
some classics that include Aladdin "A Whole New World", The Jungle Book
"The Bare Necessities", Toy Story "You Got A Friend In Me" and for the
younger player, The Little Mermaid "Under The Sea". The songs are quite
varied and are not just limited to one era of Disney which is quite an
impressive variety. The only downside to the game is that it only
contains 20 tracks, unlike the standard 30 tracks that generally come
with new Singstar games.
Ironically, the songs are quite complex in
Singstar Singalong with Disney and some are quite fast, however I was
quite impressed seeing my six-year old niece keep up with the pace.
Fortunately the words are displayed on the screen for gamers who need
assistance with the words... like myself for instance.
Graphically, the title is rather Spartan
and uses images and videos from the Disney films to assist in the
presentation, however at the end of the day, it's just the Singstar
engine slightly modified. Where the game does excel is through the
music, however as there are 10 tracks missing, the game does lose a few
points in this aspect.
In conclusion, Singstar Singalong with
Disney is an entertaining change and premise to the franchise that most
younger games will simply adore. Even older gamers may get a kick when
they use it for a party game, however if you're a fan of Disney music,
than this is a must have!
