Great songs... great fun
on 21 May 2005
The Singstar franchise just keeps on growing. This popworld edition actually has nothing to do with the T4 show except for a very short video introduction.
This time round the selection of songs seems to be a bit more solid than the party version (but still dont stand up to the original disc) with a large amount of re-singability for most of them (you just want to get a higher score - trust me!)
There are 2 new features - the first is a 'rap' mode. Now I'm not a big fan of rap so this is lost on me altogether and thankfully there is an option to turn it off (letting you just shout at the telly during the rap bits - much better!)
The second is the medley mode which is a genius idea - the chorus to several songs are lined up in a row and you just have to sing your way through them!! Superb!
The scoring is a little more leniant in Easy mode than ever before (or my singing may be getting better - unlikely!) which really helps out if youre losing in a battle match, oh and the loading times are much quicker.
One thing that is sorely missing is the solo version from the original version, it would have been ideal with a bit of popworld banter intercut into singing challenges. Oh well - this is still a great game, especially if you have the other discs as you can use them as well (hurrah!) but without the medley mode (boo!).
My advice - buy it!
