Excerpt: I'm not quite sure what to make of SingStar Vol. 2. Here you have a game released less than a year after its predecessor and that doesn't really add all that much to the game beyond its 30 new songs - and these songs are added to a game that already supports downloadable tracks.
Conclusion: SingStar Vol. 2 is a quality product in of itself, but taken as a whole with the rest of the series, it feels dated. The disc really shouldn’t exist. Players should be able to pick and choose the songs they want, not be forced to buy an entire disc for only a handful of songs they care about.
Conclusion: The overall decision on this game is pretty easy to figure out. Go buy it if you havn’t gotten yourself any karaoke games for your Ps3. Even if you got the first one on the system, it’s still worth picking up, because there is a pretty good selection of songs packed in on this disc.
Excerpt: Our vision is hazy, we can’t stand up straight and we’re slurring our words – a sensation we’re willing to bet a significant proportion of SingStar enthusiasts are all-too familiar with. But, being the better way to enjoy Sony’s esteemed sing ‘em up, that’s certainly nothing to be too ashamed of.
Excerpt: SingStar Volume 2 is the second release in the SingStar PS3 series. Volume 2 contains 30 songs ranging from bad boy rapper Eminem Graphics look crisp and clean for all the menus, but there is nothing new for those who have played the previous editions.
Excerpt: The game’s familiar format means instant gratification, and the option to download new tracks is a major draw card for us… plus it’s excellent value for money and damn good fun, to boot.
Pros: The harmony duet feature offers a new element of challenge. You can customise your song library with affordable, downloadable tracks. Backward compatible.
Cons: As always, there are a couple of questionable inclusions on the tracklist, but this is par for the course with SingStar titles… it’s pretty much impossible to please everyone.
