'SingStar Party' Tells The Truth
With shows like American Idol and Canadian Idol being some of the most popular on television today, it's no surprise that a company finally harnessed the essence of the program for home use. A game called 'SingStar Party' was recently released in Europe by Sony Computer Entertainment (the sequel to 'SingStar').
The premise of 'SingStar Party' is to allow people to have their singing judged by an outside source. Basically the game allows the player to take their very own panel of Idol judges home with them.
To play the game a person sings into a microphone, and then the game measures the player's pitch, tone and rhythm and tells them whether they're a praiseworthy singer or if they just plain stink. 'SingStar Party' comes with a wide range of songs for players to belt out, including everything from Franz Ferdinand's 'Take Me Out' to Duran Duran's 'Hungry Like The Wolf'.
Not only is it possible to potentially embarrass yourself solo, but 'SingStar Party' also includes duets, which are then judged by the game. For those who daren't let the game tell them just how their singing really sounds before an audience of friends, there's also a freestyle playmode devoid of any judging.
Although the game hasn't been released on this side of the Atlantic, it won't be long before North Americans have their chance to play pretend Idol.
