      SingStar 90's for PS2

      *Review primarily focuses on the single-player experience.*

      (Though this is a review for SingStar '90s, the review can apply to the SingStar games in general.)
      Although you sing along to music in these titles, I wouldn't classify the SingStar series as being karaoke games.

      [-] SingStar microphones are required, of which these will not work with non-Singstar titles.
      [+] The singing bars can be read similarly to a musical stave.
      [-] No such help when it comes to the rap sections.
      [-] But the singing scoring system isn't great, and it's seemingly suggested that, singing well is doing so without 'sliding' between notes, as well as sustaining them beyond the duration which they can be heard in the song.

      [-] There's no changing the key of the song.
      [+] But players can sing notes an octave higher or lower.
      [+] 30 songs to sing along to.
      [-] Which may not seem like that many considering it's not as if they sought tracks without the lead vocal.

      [+] SingStar games can be switched by swapping discs at the song selection.
      [-] But selecting a song is slow, as is the loading and autosaving scores from memory card.
      [+] Being able to playback, load and save the player performance and add in effects (robotiser, vibrato, bass n' baby talk and reverb).

      Fin
      For when I can't get a karaoke fix - can be seen as a fun singing exercise but shouldn't be taken overly seriously. Luckily I borrowed these SingStar games and mics from friends. ;)

      A funny game to play with friends

      This is just one of many singstar games for the playstation 2 that I have purchased. I was a bit dubious at first at how good it would be but I am now converted.
      The game is easy to understand..just plug the mircrophones in and off you go! There are multiple play options which involve solo's, duets and multiplayer party games.
      Song selection is easy as a series of pictures are shown with name of artist and song title and it also plays part of the song to help you decide.
      Once the song is selected highlighted bars which move across the screen let you know when to sing and you get a score and rating as you sing. At the end of each song you get an overall rating which generally tells you whether you were ' rubbish' or 'cool'.
      It is a hilarious game which is best played with a number of people over a few bottles of wine.
      As for singing in tune Im not convinced about how accurate the ratings are but is good for a laugh!
      Cost is minimal and best to shop around to get the cheapest price. Widely available.
