Excerpt: SingStar Pop: Vol. 2 comes across visually just like all of the previous iterations. The interface is crisp and clear and very easy to read. It has a little bit of an attitude to it, showing icons of a little rubber ducky if you score somewhat on the low side and you are billed as a "wannabe" or a shooting star icon for a good score that earns you the rank of "rising star" and so on.
Excerpt: The SingStar series of games is still going strong on the PS2, the latest of which is SingStar Pop, Vol. 2. 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 don’t know what it is but every time our Editor-in-Chief hands me another SingStar game, I get a little excited even though I am a horrible singer. There is just something about throwing a SingStar disk into the Playstation console, setting up the microphones and busting out some lyrics which really get’s me energized. Usually my wife and daughter join me as we scroll through the set list and randomly pick songs to sing.
Summary: If you are a Singstar fanatic you probably already have this game, so the only people I really need to appeal to here are the casual folk. If you are mostly a solo player that is looking for a singing game this isn’t it. Go buy Singstar for PS3 if you want that because at least you can just get new songs for $1 each. If you have a lot of friends and like the tracklist on here, then have at it, I’m sure you will enjoy it.
Conclusion: The truth that it really doesn't matter what I have to say about SingStar Pop Vol. 2. If you like the music and are already a SingStar fan, then chances are you're going to get a kick out of this expansion pack. If you don't like the music then maybe another one of the dozen or so SingStar games is better suited for you!
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 are still a number of SingStar games to look forward to following the release of SingStar Pop Vol. 2. Those future games include SingStar Country and SingStar Legends.
Summary: Parce que pour vous la Star Academy ou la Nouvelle Star, ça reste de la téléréalité, parce qu’on en a tous un peu marre de la Bonne Paye le samedi soir et parce que le karaoké du coin, franchement il craint avec ses chopes à 10 euros, Sony a inventé SingStar. Non content du succès de ses (déjà ?) 7 premières versions, l’éditeur nippon nous sort SingStar Pop Hits 2. Au programme, beaucoup de chansons françaises, des morceaux marrants à chanter, d’autres beaucoup moins.
