Is It Any Good?

Our review:

More ambitious fans can make small music videos of themselves as they wail to, say, Radiohead's "No Surprises." You can select a 25-second segment of your performance to upload because the PS3 will record your performance. Sadly, there's no video editing software included to make fancier videos. However, you can make a more creative snippet using the PlayStation Eye, but you have to stop and start as you record. Then, you upload it to My SingStar Online for all the world to see. That MySpace-look-a-like is actually more user-friendly that the popular social networking site. It's almost as much fun to watch the videos that have been uploaded. You can rate them, just as SingStar fans are sure to rate yours.

The upshot? If you like to sing in the shower, you just have to have this game. When another 200 or so songs have been added, SingStar Online should be the place to go when you want to do some karaoke for whatever theme your party may include.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
