One of my friends has Singstar which we often play at parties at hers. As I have a Wii one of my friends got me We Sing as a gift as they thought I would like it.
For anyone who is u familiar with the format of these games they are basically karaoke games you can play at home on your chosen game format. You will need a micro phone you can plug into to the Wii and may prefer to buy two of these so you can sing duos. For example Elton John and Kiki Dee Don't Go Breaking My Heart.
The game offers the chance to play at different levels. As I love singing but am the only person I know to have been awarded tone deaf whilst playing Singstar I haven't progressed beyond the easy level. Obviously the choice of song can affect you score as so e so gs are easier to sing than offers. I really struggle with Lily Allen The Fear but like The Automatic's Monster.
The range of songs on We Sing is good for a party as their is a mixture of very old school and more up to date songs. It would be fair to say that if you remember the eighties then you will certainly enjoy the play list. There is the optition of playing the full version of the song or a half version. The half version can be fun if you are competing against others but does sometimes end the song very abruptly. Although if I am singing my friends are usually quite glad of this!
If you want to practice beforehand then the solo mode is good so you can see the lyrics, get used to the timing and hopefully correct your pitch. All of these are dilated clearly on the screen which makes game play easy.you can also play in party mode where two or more of you can sing together or versus which is a head to head battle. Not for the fainthearted! At the end of the day if you don't like being scored you can play in the standard karaoke mode.
Overall I really enjoy We Sing and would recommend it. Once you are familiar with all the songs I can see that you might get a little bored but it is good fun to sing duos and reverse sexes. My husband does a good barbie girl and my ken is ok. You can pick up We Sing for around £20 and microphones for around £10. As we get nearer party season this is an useful addition to your Wii games selection.
Last Christmas we were given as a family a main present for us all to share from our grandparents; something which we've had a lot of use out of and has been a really great present and a year later we still love playing on it - a Nintendo Wii. This Christmas we were given some games for our beloved Wii, and one of these games was this one:
I'm not the best singer in the world by a good few miles, I'm probably one of the worst but as I'm sure most people do I do like a good sing along from time to time, and especially the Christmas atmosphere seems to bring out in us a happy, singy sort of mood and the whole family has been having a go on this new game.
Up to four people can sing at once, as you can only have up to four Wii remotes going at once on most games for the Wii. This is a game which is a bit like kareoke so probably not the most original idea in the world, but still a pretty good idea.
In a way the game is like guitar hero, only instead of when the note comes out you don't drum or play it on the guitar but you have to hold the note for the duration of the time it is on the screen which is harder on some songs than on others. If you do want to stay on the easier notes luckily for some there are three difficulty levels to choose from; easy, medium and hard.
You can sing on your own or with others and have your own competition to see who can be the best singer.
I haven't got round yet to trying out every song but I have loved singing the ones I have tried. There are some good songs, some not so good songs on the game - here is a full song list so you can see what you think for yourself:
Amy Winehouse - Tears Dry On Their Own
Aqua - Barbie Girl
Blondie - One Way Or Another
Charles and Eddie - Would I Lie To You?
Chesney Hawkes - The One And Only
Coldplay - Viva La Vida
Culture Club - Karma Chameleon
Duffy - Mercy
Duran Duran Hungry Like The Wolf
Elton John with Kiki Dee - Don't Go Breaking My Heart
James Morrison & Nelly Furtado - Broken Strings
John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads
Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot
Kylie Minogue - Loco-Motion
Lady GaGa - Poker Face
Lily Allen - The Fear
Madness - Our House
Meatloaf - I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)
Moloko - Sing It Back
One Republic Featuring Timbaland - Apologize
Pussycat Dolls - Don't Cha
Roxette - It Must Have Been Love
Shampoo - Trouble
Spice Girls - Wannabe
Sugababes - Girls
Tasmin Archer - Sleeping Satellite
The Automatic - Monster
The Police - Every Breath You Take
Tom Jones - Delilah
UB40 - Red Red Wine
The game is simple and not too complicated, I think anyone would be able to pick up how to play quite soon. The certificate is a 12 although there isn't anything I've seen yet that I wouldn't say is suitable for a ten year old. The game is a good laugh, and has made a great christmas present for the family, only my dad isn't too keen on singing along to it but the mother and daughters in most families are sure to love it unless they hate singing.
From Game.co.uk this game is currently £25.99 and if anyone likes the sound of this and is thinking of buying it I think for a Wii game this is an average price but if you do already have a kareoke machine then I wouldn't recommend this for you.
Summary: This is perfect for someone who has a wii and loves singing but not if they have a kareoke machine.
