SingStar Pop review

  • Slick interface
  • Great mics
  • Original videos
  • Short song list
  • Shotgun song selection
  • How out of tune you are

Moreover, when you compare the song list to that of the previous game in the series, Singstar Rocks!, they're not all that different in tone. Rocks! Had such inexplicable non-rockers as Marvin Gaye, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince and Aretha Franklin, and Pop boasts rock-oriented tracks from the likes of 3 Doors Down, Hinder, and Blue October. It's all decent music, sure - it just makes the titles somewhat random (full track lists are here and here).

The jack-of-all-trades approach to song lists hurts an otherwise solid karaoke game. The interface is clean; the microphones are hefty and professional; and the multitude of party games - including EyeToy camera support that enables you to record yourself rocking out - makes this a decent title to bust out when entertaining a group of slightly sauced karaoke lovers.
