Fun karaoke game with classic Disney movie clips.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The songs themselves generally have good messages, but the point of the game is to sing on pitch and enjoy the challenge of singing with and against family members.
Positive Role Models
The characters are generally carefree, or singing songs for entertainment value. There is an underscore of positive messages here, though, that speaks to the good intentions of the central characters.
Ease of Play
The on-screen instructions are easy to follow and the menus are very family friendly.The game is reasonably forgiving as to pitch.
Violence & Scariness
There are clips from the movies that play behind the lyrics bar and some of these contain humorous musical numbers performed in the animated films which include whacking others on the head.

What’s It About?
In DISNEY SING IT: FAMILY HITS, families can sing to favorite songs from Disney movies. Players seek to score the highest total possible either in solo mode or with up to seven others in a karaoke-based game that features 30 songs from classic Disney animated films. In the multiplayer modes that supports up to 8 singers, there is a team play with members of each team singing parts of the song and a family mode which scores a group performance. Party Play also supports singing a duet, or going head-to-head to see who can score the highest point totals. To help achieving the right pitch (the right notes), there is an additional mode with a vocal coach to work on singing techniques.
Is It Any Good?
Disney Sing It: Family Hits will appeal to young and old alike -- all that is necessary is an appreciation for the songs from Disney classic films. The game scores performances and so there is the ability to replay to try to score more points than others on the game's leaderboard. Families will see bright animated scenes from the movies playing behind the pitch bar and words as they scroll across the screen. The game will certainly hold great appeal to younger children, but families too may find this an accessible and entertaining karaoke game.
