A decent Wii alternative to SingStar
While not a patch on Sonys all-conquering SingStar, We Sing is a decent Wii alternative thatll keep older gamers giggling once the young uns have stopped playing the new Peppa Pig game and tripped off to bed.
Shamelessly targeted at thirtysomethings, We Sing includes 30 songs that take in the tasteless 80s (Culture Club, a-ha and shudder! UB40), disposable 90s (Chesney Hawkes, Shampoo, Tasmin Archer) and playful 00s (Lady GaGa, Lily Allen, Kaiser Chiefs), punctuated by singalong standards such as Delilah and Take Me Home, Country Roads, which are sure to make any drunken house party go with a bang.
But while the music selection is delightfully cheesy, and We Sing gives four players the chance to compete at the same time, the experience is fraught with problems: humming into the microphone is enough to hit the pitch bars and earn perfect scores, robbing players of any sense of achievement; the songs included on the disc are all you get, and theres no SingStar-style online store to buy more content and extend the games lifespan; and the presentation feels awkward in comparison to other singing games, making this new karaoke kid on the block feel tired and dated.
