While SingStar Abba doesn't add anything new to the formula on PS3, it is a stunning release with all of the bands biggest hits on a single disc. Presentation is slick, videos look good for the age, and the online functionality remains. If you're an Abba fan then this is a must have release. We love it.

As you'd expect, any existing SingStar niggles still exist here (oh for the ability to rip songs to the hard drive to avoid disk swapping) but that's missing the point to a degree. There's simply no denying the pure sing-along-ability of Abba, no matter what the age group or musical tastes of your party it's almost guaranteed that most people will know the words to a big chunk of the track listing and be happy to pick up a microphone even before the effects of the festive drinks have kicked in. If you're a SingStar fan then this is probably the most essential add on disk to be released for years. It's a little sneaky that you can't buy the game complete with microphones but the chances are most people interested will already own a pair; otherwise this is as close to a sure thing as you can get with SingStar. The winner does indeed take it all...

All in all the list of songs tells the tale. If you like what you see, Singstar Abba is worth your money. If not, consider the other Singstar options, which include Singstar 90s, SingStar Legends, SingStar Country, Singstar Rocks, Singstar Amped (more rock), Singstar 80s, SingStar Pop Vol. 2, and others. If you're in Europe, you've got a plethora of other Singstar choices that us Americans haven't seen. Also, for PlayStation 3 owners, the SingStore offers quite a bit of downloadable content, so you can also compile a soundtrack of your own.

Since the winning SingStar formula remaining untouched, this Abba version is a winner. The game takes narrow look at the disco ear and all the glittery gold will keep this Blu-ray spinning around and around because Abba is always the crowd pleaser.

If you are an ABBA fan then SingStar ABBA should be at the top of your list this Christmas - it's an essential addition to your collection. There hasn't yet been a game in the series that has been this focused and downright fun for people who enjoy the artist in question, and for that ABBA deserves as much praise as a karaoke game can get. Depending on your feelings on the band, this could be the best or worst SingStar game yet and which category the game falls under for you is entirely down to how much you love ABBA.

However, in spite of having a good time singing along, I can't see this as a Singstar disc I'm putting in repeatedly. There are too many people who are not Abba fans – who are, in fact, violently opposed to having to listen to Abba. But, more to the point, unless you're specifically having an Swedish pop revival night, it's too much Abba. I'm glad The Winner Takes It All is now an option ...but I'm scared of losing all my friends by unleashing this disc in any kind of party environment.

SingStar Abba is filled with Abba's finest songs. It's disappointing that PS2 owners get short changed in the track list though - inexcusable in fact.

Hou je van karaoke, heb je de microfoons al én hou je van Abba, dan is dit een aardig geprijsde aanvulling op je SingStarverzameling. Verwacht echter niets nieuws en online tegen of met anderen spelen/zingen is er nog steeds niet bij.

PlayStation 3The Review Busters
SingStar ABBA is not the best choice in the ongoing standalone discs for the franchise, but it is entertaining for big parties. This title is mainly for women and older gamers, they are the ones who saw Mamma Mia! too many times and they actually know who ABBA is. Fans of the franchise might as well pick this up at some point. If you are going to wait just stick with some downloads on the SingStar store.

The graphical quality, as mentioned, is solid, and so is the sound. Two younger girls, one 14 and the other 12, who had seen the feature film Mama Mia, where given the opportunity to play the game on both the PS3 and PS2 platforms. They were both of the opinion that the PS3 was better because it offered more songs, but neither was that interested in an ABBA-only karaoke night. And that may be the telling point of this title. The selection and target group is a bit too finite. With other SingStar song lists, you might find a couple of songs that really appealed to you. If you are not a fan of ABBA chances are very good this expansion will not appeal at all.

For anybody thinking that it’s a bit rich having to pay a decent amount for a glorified song pack, it’s worth noting that the 25 songs will work out considerably cheaper than downloading 25 individual songs. So to ABBA I say thank you for the music to add a bit of fun over the festive period. I can imagine it now, the family sitting down Christmas afternoon watching Mamma Mia, then wanting to emulate it with SingStar, by the end of the night even granddad will be a dancing queen, and when all is said and done, isn’t that all we want?

This will have limited appeal, and as such is not the strongest collection of songs to make the SingStar roster. If you are an ABBA fan, you will enjoy this. If you are not an ABBA fan, you would do well to leave it alone.

Unlike the first PS3 SingStar, there's no online play and microphone aren't included. We're also disappointed by the lack of content about the band, interviews or other items that fans might enjoy. Of course, if you already have a PS3, the microphones and think ABBA's amazing, that $39.99 is well spent.

Overall though, Singstar ABBA is a fine release for the Playstation 3. Sure, the series seems to have made little to no advancements in the past few years, but the technology is still pretty impressive, even if other games are adding in more instruments. For great party fun any Singstar game will impress, but those who are keen ABBA supporters should have no hesitation in picking this game up.

While SingStar Abba receives a budget price of £24.99 in the UK without mics--roughly equivalent to 25 songs from the SingStore--Americans are lumped with a hefty $39.99 pricetag. It's also worth bearing in mind that while you can cherry-pick individual songs from the SingStore at 99p each, Abba's library is only available on disc for now. Whether you're considering it as an addition to your existing SingStar collection or as your first foray to the series, you'll be guaranteed a fun night if you like Abba. That said, it's a shame the game offers nothing new to fans of the series, especially in the way of online play.

Una cosa está clara, PS3 disfruta de la PSStore, donde se pueden descargar un montón de canciones. ¿Por qué entonces comprar esta entrega? Pues por lo mismo que se va a ver la película, por cantar ABBA, es lo único que ofrece como gancho este título, ya que pagar por un Singstar teniendo un enorme número de canciones descargables a un precio mucho más barato que este Blu-Ray se antoja como un poco absurdo. London Studio ha abierto la puerta a Singstar específicos de cantantes, ¿Será Madonna la siguiente? ¿Aprovecharán el musical Hoy no me puedo levantar para hacer uno de Mecano? ¿U optarán por ser más alternativos y poner el grunge de Pearl Jam al a venta? Esperemos que no y que a partir de ahora estos packs estén en Internet, descargables y a un precio razonable.

SingStar ABBA as a retail release makes sense on the PS2. On the PS3 however, it offers absolutely nothing that couldn't have been provided by simply making it a downloadable offering. On either platform, if you aren't a hardcore ABBA fan, then skip this and keep dreaming of the day when we'll get that full themed Boyz II Men download pack or something.

There is no doubt that Singstar Abba is squarely aimed at Abba fans so if you hate their songs or have never even heard of them then chances are this disc won’t be for you, however if you have a spare £19.99 sitting about then adding this to your collection will surely appeal to someone you know, it might even make a great Xmas present for your Abba loving relatives.

Simple compilation des titres phares du légendaire groupe pop ABBA, cette édition spéciale de Singstar ne saura retenir l'attention que du public auquel elle se destine. Incontournable si on est fan mais tout à fait dispensable dans le cas contraire.

Acquérir SingStar ABBA, aussi bien sur PS3 que sur PS2, revient à dire que l’on possède forcément des affinités avec le groupe suédois. Soit parce qu’on fait partie de cette génération qui a grandi dans les années 70, soit parce qu’on possède un goût prononcé pour les chansons kitsch et les belles blondes platines. Toujours est-il que cette nouvelle galette de SingStar est clairement destinée à un public averti. A vous de savoir de quel côté vous vous situez.

Clearly, I'm not a member of the ABBA fan club, but you shouldn't dismiss my criticism based on that. I love SingStar but feel these artist-specific titles are missteps. There's not enough content for the price; the scope is super-limited; and even if you love ABBA, you'll need ABBA-obsessed friends to have a decent party with this title.

Even though I didn't enjoy SingStar Vol. 2's offering this year because it didn't add anything new to SingStar's functionality, at least it brought 35 songs that were different enough where everyone could find something to sing; that's not the case here. SingStar ABBA has all the moving parts that make the SingStar games fun, but the scope is so limited that I only see a tiny audience really enjoying this title. If you're not the world's biggest ABBA fan, do not buy this disc. It's not worth forking over $40 to only enjoy the three or four real hits out of this collection.

N'apportant rien de neuf, si ce n'est les quelques petites mises à jour dont ont déjà pu bénéficier les utilisateurs du premier SingStar, et avec sa playlist 100% ABBA, SingStar ABBA ne s'adresse donc qu'aux fans. Et pour ceux qui voudraient tout de même se lancer dans le karaoké made in PlayStation 3 sans risquer l'overdose de pop suédoise, il y a plutôt SingStar Hits.

Avec sa playlist 100% ABBA, SingStar ABBA ne s'adresse donc qu'aux fans, qui seront sûrement ravis de faire revivre le temps d'une soirée le groupe mythique des années 70.
