For under $20, music fans -- and especially those who love karaoke -- will find this music game to be a fun and accessible collection of mostly modern pop hits. It's not perfect, but the PlayLink integration works, which puts a new spin on an old formula by letting you use your smartphone's microphone instead of paying for a standalone microphone. That said, Sony's London Studio offers only a mediocre number of songs, at 30 music videos included in the price, and most are current pop tracks. Of course, DLC (downloadable content) will expand the library considerably (to about 600 songs), but you'll have to pay a couple of bucks per track, if desired.

The two-player modes will likely be the most popular, such as Battle and Duet, but the game's Party mode supports up to eight players, who take turns singing. You'll be divided into teams of two, and a member is randomly selected per side to perform a random song. Too bad the game doesn't support more than two simultaneous players; it would be fun to have two friends singing together (with harmonies) against two other friends, while alternating lines of the same song. Overall, this PlayLink title is a great party game, especially for the price, but a greater song selection and more head-to-head options would hit a high note.
