U-Sing
Girl's night

Singstar, Lips or U-SingÖ itís pretty fair to say that the majority of these so-called games are played by females. Men have fun with them but at their heart, females are the true players and considering that the Wii is such as popular casual gamers console, itís fantastic that another karaoke game has been released on this console. Continuing from the previous U-Sing title, comes U-Sing Girls Night which is an all-female track listing of about 30 songs. There are two versions of this game available, the standalone game or the version with two microphones and it should be noted that standard USB microphones also work on the Wii. 

The game is reminiscent of similar games such as Singstar where the player must match the words with the singers of the track that they are singing. The words are displayed on the screen as a prompt and by matching the words correctly or the pitch and tone, you are awarded points to your music score. Itís almost like karaoke but better because the tracklisting on U-Sing Girls Night is phenomenal. To complete the whole music experience, there is also a cool music video playing in the background that only enhances the entire atmosphere of this game and really gets you into the dance mode. 

With a variety of different gameplay modes from solo to duet and our favourite mode, ďBattleĒ, U-Sing has enough gaming modes to make this a Wii classic. The game supports up to 8-players via multiplayer and some of the other modes include medley, training, duo and versus.

The game even contains a Juke Box Mode that turns the game into a traditional karaoke game with or without the words. Best of all, the scoring is thrown out the window and people can just have fun. The scoring system of U-Sing Girl's Night works quite well and boasts five categories from atrocious to legend and there is a new power-up called "Golden Notes". Golden Notes basically increases your score and does add an element of strategy to the game.

The star of the game is the brilliant track listing that includes classic singers such as Blondie to No Doubt with retro stars that include Amy Winehouse and the Sugababes. The entire track listing is displayed at the end of this review and additional tracks can be purchased online which are relatively quite affordable and a new feature for Wii karaoke games. The quality of music is exceptionally clear on the Wii and this game needs to be played loud. Graphically, the menu system has received a facelift from the previous U-Sing game and the videos are quite acceptable, even though they are not FULL HD.  It's also cool how the game displays the album cover while you are looking for games but if left for a few seconds, it transforms into the video clip.

If youíre after the perfect gift for your wife, girlfriend, sister or daughter, than U-Sing Girls Night might be the perfect present. With a great tracklisting, decent karaoke inspired gameplay and good graphics, this game will definitely fly off the shelves. Definitely one to check out and if youíre a male, Iím sure youíll have a good time as well!
