SingStar Party

SingStar Party

Get the party started again - SingStar's back!

The original SingStar tapped into our urge to be a star, and now it has returned as SingStar Party - a package guaranteed to turn every social occasion into a singalong! This time around, the emphasis is on getting everyone involved, with a massively varied list of 30 new songs, and a selection of brand new multiplayer modes - including, for the first time, a proper duet mode.

Duets allow two players to sing both parts of a song, so for example, one player can rattle off Elton John's lines in 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart', while the other croons away as Kiki Dee.

That's not the only multiplayer option, though. SingStar Party can host competitions for up to eight players, thanks to new 'Pass the Mic' team games, which feature a variety of different singing challenges - solo rounds, combined duets, random battles and surprise singer selections to name but a few.

Of course, none of this would matter if the songs weren't up to scratch - but SingStar Party features a stunning playlist of thirty tracks, encompassing timeless classics and contemporary favourites. The only thing they've all got in common is that they're great fun! From Franz Ferdinand to Bill Withers, there's something here for everyone.

SingStar

Liven up any gathering and become a singing legend in your own living room to boot, with Studio London's latest innovative slice of party genius.

From SCEE London Studio, the same team who persuaded you to leap around your living room swatting imaginary ghosts and busting lethal kung fu moves in the direction of your TV with EyeToy, comes SingStar, the latest in interactive entertainment designed to get everyone up and playing. One of the most involving and addictive titles to come out for PS2 for some time, SingStar has the rather impressive ability to ensnare everyone who sees it in action.

Unlike the typically mortifying experience of getting up on a small stage in your local pub and being forced to croak out a number from the popular hit parade (circa 1982, usually), SingStar is actually a stress-free and hugely entertaining experience that, once sampled, will have even the most shy and retiring of types casting aside their inhibitions.

As well as having the canny knack of breaking the ice at even the frostiest of familial get-togethers, SingStar is also an involving single-player game that actually encourages you to hone your warbling skills. This may all sound suspiciously familiar, but leave your preconceptions at the door: SingStar is actually a highly innovative title that's unlike anything you'll have ever played before.

SingStar comes fully equipped with two microphones which, with the help of a nifty adapter, plug into just one of your PS2's two USB ports. Simple, eh? SingStar is also EyeToy compatible so, once you've set-up your mics, there's also the option to plug in your wonder-cam and watch yourself sing with added visual effects to keep things interesting.

There are four different modes to warm-up your vocal chords with. Sing Mode is the quickest route to crooning glory, with the option to either belt one out alone, or battle it out with another amateur vocalist; Multiplayer is the most party-friendly mode of the lot, encouraging 1-8 participants to perform duets and team competitions; Career puts you on the capricious road to fame and fortune, a la Pop Idol, and Freestyle lets you croon without any scores.

When you select a track, the lyrics and a set of bars will appear onscreen which indicate the pitch, tone and timing required for that song. Points are scored depending on how well you manage to adhere to these guides. Remarkably accurate voice-recognition technology analyses your voice and displays how well (or badly) you're singing onscreen. The mics are colour-coded (red and blue), so you'll be able to follow your timbre on the TV as you get your vocal chords around Ricky Martin, Madonna et al.

Of course, if you're playing against a pal in Sing Mode, the element of competition comes to the fore with Battle mode gameplay. Naturally, it often leads to some highly impressive, not to mention amusing, face-offs between would-be songstrels, determined to out-sing each other.

There's a huge track listing of classic and contemporary numbers on offer - 30 in all - so there's something to suit everyone's tastes. Get ready to siiiiiing...

 

  • Comes with two microphones and USB adapter


  • Go from bedroom crooner to singing sensation in Career mode


  • Play with up to eight other singers in Multiplayer mode
