Review game SingStar Celebration Source:

We Continue to acquaint our readers with the range of video games, published by Sony in the framework of the project PlayLink. Briefly remind you that these games can play up to six players, using controllers with their mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. We have already published reviews on such projects as , and . Today we will discuss about one more game for parties and fun companies under the name of SingStar Celebration.

Game: SingStar Celebration
the Platform: PlayStation 4
the Genre: Karaoke Party
the release date: November 22, 2017
the Developer: London Studios
the Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

In 2014 about the video game series SingStar. This franchise has gained popularity since on the PlayStation 2 back in 2004. Since then, Sony is trying not to forget the fans pogorlanit favorite songs in the company of your friends in front of the TV. In fact – the game is a simulator karaoke. But not like this karaoke, to which we are accustomed, and extremely technically advanced, with many different fishechek, a wonderful selection of music tracks and, of course, designed for a big friendly company of people without complexes.

Not surprisingly, the SingStar series has been developed specifically for the Japanese consoles family PlayStation. After all, the Japanese at the time, invented this kind of entertainment, and to this day, karaoke is extremely popular in the Country of the rising sun. In General, such games there is quite a lot. To recall the Lips for the Xbox 360 console Sing Party for Wii U, as well as the legendary series of music simulation games Rock Band and Guitar Hero, where players could use microphones to sing along with your favorite performers. Music games firmly entrenched in the gaming industry and strongly going to leave. That is a simple explanation: people are not indifferent to music. Unlikely to find such a person who did not love to listen to it or which she had not raised the mood.

New game, subtitled Celebration well first of all the fact that for games you don't need microphones, and therefore do not have to spend extra money to purchase them. Just need to buy the game in the PlayStation store for a ridiculous 1299 rubles, to download to your smartphone running iOS or Android official application, merge the smartphone with the console and everything is ready for you to be able to feel like a real pop star. Now your smartphone will act as a stage microphone. This sort of technology PlayLink and good. She literally attracts people to join the world of video games using the device, which today is almost everyone. Everything is simple, intuitive and extremely exciting.

The Algorithms used in the game series SingStar, allow to accurately assess the tone of voice of the players, and how they get into the rhythm of the music. All this is displayed on the screen visually, and each of the members of your party can own eyes to see: did he bear's ear or sleep real singer. Interestingly, the interface of the game constantly tells you when you need to sing slightly higher or lower to hit the right tone. Shown with colored horizontal stripes, and a glowing cursor that represents the height of your voice. Here want or do not want, but subconsciously you will try to hit the notes, even if you have no hearing from the word "all". Quite cleverly conceived. Bravo, developers!

To the players it was not boring, each song is accompanied by an official video clip, on top of which displays the same interface, which I told you just above. The game is constantly earning you points and bonuses if your singing is truly outstanding. But the most interesting SingStar Celebration that it focuses on the competitive moment. You can compete with your friends for the title of best artist or that music track in several modes. You can even break into two teams of 4 players and the eight to compete against each other. The game will carefully assess your talents and choose from the participants of the winner. Of course, the TV speakers will strengthen your voice and broadcast it to the room. So, if you or your friends belong to the category of shy people may be that someone will refuse to participate in the adventure, ashamed of his ability to sing. It's not so bad, but this is the essence of social games: there is always the humble who prefer to watch from the sidelines.

As for the track listing for the new game, here, everything is in order. Among the 30 tracks is and Adele with her hit single "Hello", and Britney Spears with the famous "Oops!... I Did It Again", as well as bands such as Oasis, One Direction, Roxette, U2 and many, many others. I was particularly pleased with the presence of legendary bands and artists ABBA, Blondie, Wham! and many others. In other words, it will not be boring to anyone: neither fans of modern pop music (in its basic collection the vast majority), nor the fans something from the category of "retro". And that's just fine, because the game is easy to play together with older people, which names like The Chainsmokers Avicii or nothing to say. There are in-game built-in store with a huge number of various compositions at an average price of 99 cents apiece. It's expensive, in my opinion, but you can buy in bulk at a discount. Sets of five tracks Radiohead or Duran Duran will cost you 469 rubles, and five hits of the same Britney Spears or Queen even cheaper — 309 rubles.

With all this, there is one big and very bold BUT that could seriously damage the popularity of the game in our country: the lack of Russian songs. Yes, all songs in the track list in English language only. I remember Sony once released a special edition of SingStar with the subtitle "Russian hit" for the PlayStation 2, which tried to please the Russian public. There was most popular at that time domestic hits performed «the Brothers Grimm», «Dances a minus», Dima Bilan, Maksim, Lolita and other Russian pop stars. But it was more of an experiment. Game sold complete with two microphones, but even that did not allow her to gain fame among Russian gamers (though I personally with friends and girlfriends well spent for her time). More such experiments Sony did, so all new games in the series come solely with English-language compositions on Board. Which is very sad, in my opinion.

The game is integrated with social component. You can take pictures with the PlayStation Camera, and even record your own songs, and then publish it online so that other players can appreciate your talent as a performer. However, you can just look at people from different countries and from the soul to rejoice as they are having fun in front of cameras in their apartments. It should be noted that many of them sing quite cool, but there are also those from which the ears begins to whip the blood. There are also "Tests" when the game offers you to beat the record of some other player and try during the execution of the composition to score more points than he got. Do you have a personal experience level, just like in RPG, which will grow as you pump your skill of a singer. No you are not oblige to this, but still feature a very nice and motivating.

the

Cons:

the

    The game was not brought absolutely nothing new. the

  • would Like to see additional tracks were cheaper.
  • the
  • base musical selection – a solid pop.
  • the
  • the lack of the Russian musical compositions.
  • the
  • Shy players hardly dare to play it.

Well, it's time to draw conclusions about whether or not to buy the game SingStar Celebration in their home collection or not. I will say this: if you and your friends know English well and are not afraid to shell out for buying additional music tracks – it will be a great acquisition. But if the English in your company is tight, and the cost 99 rubles per music track you think too much – I would advise you to refrain from buying. I would really like to see Sony have paid more attention to local markets like the Russian one. After all, what prevents them from acquiring rights for 30 popular songs and local artists to release a special edition of the same game? This would make it much more affordable and attractive for the inhabitants of our country, because the PlayStation 4 console here appreciated and loved. Which is why I give the game only 6 out of 10. Let's hope that one day the Japanese will listen to us....
