PSX Extreme: SingStar Abba Review

PSX Extreme writes: "Okay so I have a soft spot for Abba. I'll admit it. So when I heard that Sony has a SingStar Abba title in the works, I didn't exactly scoff. I do think that Abba is an unusual first choice for the SingStar, as far as band-specific compilations go, but I'd be a liar if I said I didn't like the band. SingStar Abba has arrived for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2, with the PS2 version featuring five fewer songs and no online gameplay. As you can see, despite hitting it big on the PlayStation 3 already, the SingStar franchise will continue to live on the PS2 for quite sometime and there are still a number of SingStar games to look forward to.

It seems like band-specific music games are the next wave for the genre, with publishers working on exclusive licenses for bands like Metallica, Aerosmith, The Beatles, and Abba. Prepare to see a slew of these compilations arriving for your music franchise of choice over the coming years. I've spent a good amount of time with SingStar Abba, most of it with my girlfriend who absolutely owns me in every Abba song. I mean sure, I like the band, but dammit, I don't know every word to all the songs - and singing some of the lyrics can feel a bit effeminate. Still, the game is good fun and that's what matters most."
