Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the karaoke game Disney Sing It! Party Hits requires multiple microphones if more than one player wishes to sing in the multiplayer mode. Featuring songs from Disney popular movies like Camp Rock as well as artists like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and The Jonas Brothers, most of the songs are full of fun and energy. A few, including one by the Black Eyed Peas, have more mature themes. The game offers vocal coaching by Demi Lovato, which is both helpful and kept positive.
What's it about?
DISNEY'S SING IT PARTY HITS is a karaoke-style musical game that challenges players to sing along to pop songs, with the end result to record high scores that can be posted on online leaderboards. More than one microphone will be needed for the multiplayer modes. The game also has a "Performance" mode that simply plays the music without the pitch meter or lyrics on the screen. There are 30 songs available in the game with others available through an online download from the Sing It Store (only one Hannah Montana song is currently available and it is a free download). The artists include many Disney Channel stars like Ashley Tisday, The Jonas Brothers, and Selena Gomez, as well as more mature artists like Kelly Clarkson, Paramore, Black Eyed Peas, and One Republic. Justin Bieber and Jordin Sparks also appear.
Is it any good?
The inclusion of high-definition music videos makes Sing It Party Hits visually impressive. While the song list skews a bit younger than some of the songs in other karaoke titles, the selection should have appeal for the tweens and teen-age crowd. The pitch meter seems a bit tighter than in previous releases and the game is quite easy to jump in and play, but scoring high will take some talent.
Online interaction: There are online leaderboards but there is no interaction between players. As of the posting date of this review, one song is available for download and it is free to download.
