Gerade im direkten Vergleich mit Lips unterstreicht Sony mit der jüngsten SingStar-Edition für die PS3, wer beim Konsolen-Karaoke die stärkere Stimme hat! Unabhängig vom persönlichen Geschmack bietet die Songliste von Volume 3 einfach eine deutlich bessere Mischung aus aktuellen Chart-Hits, Klassikern und verschiedenen Musikrichtungen als das 360-Pendant. Dazu öffnet sich auch hier das Tor in die weite Online-Welt, in der zig neue Tracks samt (HD-)Videos im SingStore sowie unzählige (und zum Teil urkomische) Inhalte der Community auf euch warten. Davon abgesehen erwartet euch aber bei den Spielmodi nur das bereits seit Jahren bekannte Standardprogramm. So langsam sollte man bei Sony vielleicht anfangen darüber nachzudenken, wie man den Karaoke-Spaß mit neuen Features wie Jukebox oder lustigen Minispielen noch weiter aufwerten könnte.

So yes, to get back to SingStar Volume 3 itself, if you're new to SingStar PS3 and like the track listing then great, this is the one for you to start with. If you prefer the songs on either of the other two existing volumes then pick up one of those instead. However, if you've already got SingStar PS3 there's very little point looking at this unless you happen to like enough of the songs to make it worth the money. Chances are you'd be far better off spending the same amount of cash in the SingStore to on a selection of songs you genuinely love. Its not that this is a bad SingStar; its just that it is exactly as good or bad as SingStar always is. This will unfortunately be true of every new release from now until the end of time unless Sony actually get off their backsides and, oh I don't know, spend some time working on the game itself rather than just swapping the music over.

There are now four SingStar games available on the system and so you have four track lists to choose from. My pick would be Vol 1 and at a bargain price pre-owned, there's no excuse to not buy it. Then you have Vol 2 and its focus on the older generation of songs, which may well warrant your attention. Vol 3 isn't a disappointment -very few SingStar games can be called a disappointment nowadays - but it isn't as strong as the other volumes and the other new entry to the series, SingStar ABBA. No matter which release you choose though, SingStar still has the edge over the first competition it's had since Karaoke Revolution a few years back; LIPS may seem like a revelation, but when you have a back catalogue as extensive as SingStar's, there's only one karaoke game to really care about.

It's tough to dislike the SingStar series. Throwaway as they are, as nonexistant as their progression seems to be, at the end of the day each and every instalment is still fun; all the moreso with friends and alcohol involved. While the series' leap to PS3 a year ago hasn't really brought around the sort of progressions that would have been expected of a current-gen title, SingStar as a whole remains as accessible and enjoyable a party game that is available.

SingStar Vol. 3 represents good value for your money, with a budget price of £24.99 in the UK without mics, which is actually less than just buying 30 tracks from the online store. It's worth bearing in mind, however, that you could cherry-pick a lot of the songs on Vol. 3 from the SingStore at 99p each, although not all are available at the time of review. Whether you're considering it as an addition to your existing SingStar collection or as your first foray to the series, you're guaranteed a fun night in. That said, it's still a shame that Sony has failed to add any new features this time around, especially online play which would definitely be a huge plus to the series.

All in all, the tracklisting for Vol. 3 is pretty good, and SingStar is as much fun as it's always been. But it ought to be a bit more fun by now, with wireless mics and proper video editing and less disc swapping. Here's hoping things will improve for Vol. 4.
