Excerpt: While I'll admit that I am not a huge fan of the band Queen, I can certainly appreciate the band and what they did for rock music. SingStar: Queen compiles 25 of the band's songs for the ultimate Queen experience.
Excerpt: Since this is VGChartz' second review of a Singstar game, I'm only going to touch on the gameplay as we all know what's there. What I am going to do is review this as an add-on pack, since that is all Singstar: Queen really is.
Conclusion: It fares no better than the last PS3 SingStar release (save for perhaps offering a little more widespread appeal), and the PS3 version of the game simply shouldn't exist outside of the SingStore.
Summary: Queen survives. While the death of ultratalented and flamboyant lead singer Freddie Mercury in 1991 essentially signaled the end of an era, the remaining members have teamed up with other vocalists in the years since.
Pros: The music is fantastic, The new mic-triggered menu navigation works well, Great online community features
Cons: It's hard to figure out the harmony parts, Still no online play
Summary: Although band-based multiplayer is still all the rage, no one has pure karaoke gaming nailed quite like SingStar. Stateside, the franchise has only been around for three years, but in Europe, it made the PlayStation 2 a hit with casual gamers way before Nintendo duct-taped two GameCubes together.
Pros: Offers an eclectic selection of greatest hits that have appeal for hardcore fans and casual Queen listeners.
Cons: Big gameplay feature is now available as DLC if you have another SingStar PS3 game., Why is this a standalone release, rather than a downloadable pack?
Excerpt: Are you a closet Freddie Mercury? Do you like to prance around your living room singing along to Queen songs? If so then this might just be right up your street. Granted you cant pick up the drum kit or guitar which might reduce the potential audience but surely this game offers something for music...
Conclusion: Beyond the track list, everything that makes the SingStar series so popular is present and correct; the slick menus, SingStore access, PS Eye functionality and a cast iron guarantee that it will perform the entertainment duties at a dinner party without batting an eyelid.
