SingStar Legends (PS2) - Review
9 January 2009
Excerpt: There is a good possibility that many of you already know all about the SingStar franchise. Even if you have never played one of the games, you can take an educated guess based on the title that this series of video games encourages you to sing like a star.
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: Even though the PlayStation 2 now caters solely to the casual market, SingStar Legends is one of those games we can easily recommend to any music lover. Sure the SingStar series is better on PS3, but for those with only a PS2, this disc is something you’ve been dreaming of for a while.
Excerpt: Ever notice how some things seem better in theory than in reality, or they simply look better on paper than in real life? Well, that's my best analogy for SingStar Legends . Maybe the dev team thought, "the people want more classic tunes" or maybe they thought that by placing some of these legendary songs available as play options, they could draw an older crowd in. Whatever the case may be, I am just not sure why some of these songs made it onto SingStar Legends .
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Catering for all tastes and drawing from all eras and genres of music, Singstar Legends is the most varied and balanced SingStar collection available. An excellent party game and post-pub diversion.
Conclusion: There's two kinds of people in this world. People who play SingStar, and people who secretly want to play SingStar. Don't deny it. If you're in group #2, SingStar Legends gives you the perfect excuse to jump in and make your mark. And with the likes of the Angels, Midnight Oil, Barnesy, and Farnsy available, you could even stretch this out beyond Christmas to Australia Day. Grouse.
Pros: This stuff never goes out of fashion
Cons: Where's the artist specific SingStar release, huh? huh?
