SingStar Queen review

This will rock you

For

  • Tons of tunes
  • Popular and more obscure tracks
  • Still great for after the pub

Against

  • Just another repackage
  • Zero originality
  • Needed extras

Here%26rsquo;s a quick heads-up: you only think you know all the words to Killer Queen. In reality, you don%26rsquo;t. But fear not, Freddie fans, as there are another 24 tunes to strut and punch the air by.

We%26rsquo;re torn though. On the one hand this is great and warbling through Under Pressure with a mate is as beautiful as SingStar gets. But on the other, this is simply a repackaged SingStar with zero originality. We want exclusive wallpapers, themes or unblemished music videos (you know, like the one where Freddie%26rsquo;s dressed as a lady? No? Just us then) to justify our spending.

If you%26rsquo;re looking to bolster your post-pub tracklist then you can%26rsquo;t go wrong with this. Old favourites like We Are The Champions won%26rsquo;t fail to get people involved and there%26rsquo;s niche tracks for the hardcore fans sporting Brian May hairstyles too. Queen were always a shoo-in for a SingStar spin-off but Sony%26rsquo;s One Vision of milking this cash cow is wearing thin.
