Excerpt: Another SingStar release and another slew of tunes so you can sing your heart out. This go round, it's all about the country music. SingStar Country has plenty of tunes from mega stars like Alan Jackson ("Chattahoochee" and "Good Time"), Brad Paisley ("Online"), Keith Urban ("Days Go By"), Martina McBride ("A Broken Wing") and Rascal Flatts ("Bless the Broken Road"), plus American Idol alums Kellie Pickler ("Red High Heels") and Bucky Covington ("It's Good To Be Us").
Excerpt: The SingStar series of games continues to march along on the PS2, one of the latest of which is SingStar Country. Each release of the game has left the gameplay itself untouched, essentially using each new release as a substitute for the lack of support for downloadable content on the PS2. This is not really a bad thing, because the core gameplay certainly does what it does well enough - provide a fun way for friends at a party to enjoy a little video karaoke.
Excerpt: I have never been a big country music fan, yet I did go through a period in my early twenties when all I did on the weekends was go to country bars with the boys and do some 2-stepin’ with the ladies. There was nothing like strapping on my cowboy boots, putting on a cowboy hat and doing the boot scootin’ boogie all night long on the dance floor. Yes, those were the days.
Conclusion: While I don't like country music, i do appreicate the classics. Who honestly can say they dislike Johnny Cash? SingStar continues to grow and diversify their catalogue, and is becoming a very great library of games!
Excerpt: Despite hitting it big on the PlayStation 3 already, the SingStar franchise will continue to live on the PS2 for quite sometime. In fact, there's no doubt in my mind that there are still a number of SingStar games to look forward to following the release of SingStar Legends and Country. Of course this should come as no surprise, as the rhythm genre is one of the fastest growing genres in videogaming today, largely thanks to games like Guitar Hero and Singstar.
Conclusion: As you can see by the track listing, there are some true classics featured in SingStar Country . As I said before, if you’re a fan of the series and you enjoy the hits offered on this disc, then there’s no reason for you to avoid this one.
