|SingStar: Volume 2|
|Developer: SCEE London
Release Date: Out Now
Guess what? SingStar: Volume 2 is exactly the same game as the other 11-odd games from PS2 (if it ain't broke, don't fix it), except for one new feature to add to the new 2 features that SingStar PS3 brought with it.
We’ll start with the song list:
Aerosmith - Dude Looks Like a Lady
I think it’s the strongest song list for any SingStar title so far. It’s got something for everyone. All the songs are great fun. For those of you new to the series here’s a brief explanation of how you play the game. You and a friend grab a mic (rophone), the words for the songs will appear at the bottom of the screen and in the middle are “bars”. The bars indicate the pitch and length of the lyric you are singing. So if you sing and your colour appears under the bar that means you have to sing in a higher pitch and vice-versa. After the song you get a rating to tell you how good (or bad if you’re me) you are at singing. The new feature for Vol. 2 is the “Harmony Mode” which lets you and a friend harmonise to certain songs in the game i.e. singing the background lyrics. This feature has also been patched into the first SingStar on PS3.
Overall it’s almost exactly the same game as SingStar PS3, bar the harmony mode. This disc features a great song list and only adds to the already great experience. One of the best party games around. I think it’d be a good idea to have the songs from either Vol.2 or SingStar PS3 installed to your hard drive so you can do away with disc swapping. Maybe a feature for the future?
