Summary

Could Karaoke games be the new platformers? It's just possible. Sony has the SingStar franchise, Konami has Karaoke Revolution and Microsoft is on board with Lips. While each of those games has their audiences, however, they don't present the family-focussed catalogue provided by Disney's Sing It.

Disney has, let's face it, a roster of artists and shows made for this genre. Drawing on the catalogue provided by the Disney Channel's original series and movies, Sing It boasts the talents of, among others, Camp Rock, High School Musical, Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, Jesse McCartney and Aly & AJ. There are a total of 35 tracks on offer right off the disc, with more offered for download via the PlayStation Network.

The format will be familiar to anyone who's warbled along to a karaoke game before – the appropriate music video does its thing in the background while the lyrics float across the screen and players try to match the pitch, which is shown off by a coloured pitch bar. To make sure players get a unique Disney experience, however, there are seven skins from favourite Disney shows and artists to choose from.

To get the whole family involved there are a handful of multi-player modes, including duet, player versus player, and team play.

For those whose crooning leaves something to be desired, there's also a selection of vocal exercises that show players how pros perfect their art.

Disney's Sing It offers players of all ages the opportunity to embarrass themselves in front of the whole family. Thanks, Disney!
