Sequined dresses at the ready, SingStar camps it up with an array of diva-fuelled classics
With the rugged leather jacket of SingStar Rocks! still warm, SingStar heads in a completely different direction with Anthems. Grabbing the glitziest floor fillers from the past few decades, Anthems gives you the chance to challenge your larynx with 20 big-hearted, big-haired songs from the likes of The Weather Girls, Bonnie Tyler and Whitney Houston.
- Another fun-filled edition of the classic singing game brings the SingStar library up to 170 songs
- Packed with classics including Radio Ga Ga, Relight My Fire and I Will Survive
- Comes complete with two bespoke SingStar microphones, or in a standalone version for existing SingStar owners
After the studded leather of SingStar Rocks! the brilliant sing-along-a-series dons a sequined ball gown to camp up the limelight.
Just when your vocal chords had recovered from belting out the hits from the previous five SingStars, along comes a new one to separate the silver-tongued men from the boys. SingStar Anthems builds upon the massive success of the likes of SingStar 80s and Party by collating a hit factory of 20 tunes from the 1970s up to the last couple of years.
Mixing the likes of contemporary crooners such as LeAnn Rimes, Charlotte Church and the Scissor Sisters with veteran vocalists such as Cher, The Weather Girls and Bucks Fizz means warblers of all ages can get in on the artistic antics. Add to that the now familiar array of game modes such as Duet, Battle and Pass the Mic for up to eight players (although there's no reason why more can't join in) and you've got a recipe for the ultimate party night in.
As with previous SingStars, Anthems comes in two versions; as a standalone game for those of you who already own the trademark SingStar mics, and a satisfyingly chunky deluxe edition that includes those all-important red and blue microphones. These will no doubt take a pounding as you belt out these floor-fillers -

- Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
- Bucks Fizz - Making Your Mind Up
- Candi Station - Young Hearts Run Free
- Charlene - I've Never Been to Me

Now if something in that kitsch collection doesn't start you humming the chorus and grinning like a pre-Bobby Whitney, you're in desperate need of some more fun in your life. We strongly suggest two strong doses of SingStar twice a day and a packet of throat lozenges.
