Summary: It's a cool game, fun for small parties. But you will tire of the songs quickly, unless you start buying additional songs. And I guess that's really the point. The game designers wanted you to pay a little for this game and then spend a lot on the songs.
Summary: Not only does this game require a proprietary switch instead of simply using simple USB headsets like most modern music games. While co-op singing is allowed, the song setup is mis-mashed, and DRM locks down any songs you buy to be a one-time-only use for those files. Lose the PS3 harddrive, lose the PS3 hardware, or just plain upgrade or switch in some way, and you have to pay for every single song again.
Summary: The idea for Singstar is a great one. You get a slew of contemporary music videos that you can sing along to with friends in various methods of competition or cooperation. It's not a new concept -- it's been done with Karaoke Revolution and, to some degree, Rock Band. However, the power of Singstar is its Singstore -- an online portal where you can oay to download additional song videos to increase your Singstar library.
Conclusion: Ok, To be honest, I would have gave this game 4 stars, cause its a blast when you have friends over, you will just not stop laughing the night away, until your neighbor complains that is..... Anyhow, I am from Malta and as yet we dont have access to the playstation store which you will need to download new songs. So to fork out all that money for just 30 odd songs is alot of money.
Conclusion: This game was free with my ps3 (no other choices) and I've given it a go a few times. I just find there is such a limited choice of songs and the singstore isn't easy to find songs you'll like. The music available for singstar is all very mainstream which I find very disappointing. Although the Queen version does show some promise.
Summary: I was disappointed to see that I only received a £10 psn voucher in the pack not a £20 one as specified... Thought it was too good to be true!! The mics work fine, much better than the wired ones. The only other negative I would say is that you have to choose the songs out of the top 100 which doesnt sound so bad but they are mostly old songs that are listed...
Summary: I was rather disapointed with the song selectron choices of all thr singstars i have purchased, Personally whoever picks the songs dose not do well. I have fantastic song choices on my grand theft auto game they play classic songs in the genres. The motown singstar has hardly any classics, wheres the 90 classics like mary jane girls- All night long, and the beat goes on- whispers.
Summary: Great game and I love that the microphones are wireless. That's really where the good review ends. The title 'Pop Edition' is, like someone mentioned, very misleading! They use songs which you wouldn't even class as 'pop'. Also, I was stunned to learn that a few bands/artists didn't make it in. For instance, no pop is pop without Britney, Kylie & Girls Aloud. It was extremely disappointing to not have the true essense of pop songs.
