Worth Playing (Jun 01, 2008)
If you like to sing, even just a bit, you'll love SingStar PS3. The packages tallies well: all of the venerable favorite features, plus My SingStar Online, a raft of downloadable content well spread from 1960s rockabilly classic to latter-day progressive mood-rock (I made up that genre just now, on the spot, but go ahead and faint because Mercury Rev's "Goddess On A Hiway" is indeed available this moment as SingStar DLC). Even your own catastrophic failures can make you smile an hour or a day later. For purely innocent window-peeping entertainment, watching other players online in their so-called failures, which are often signature moments in community-based gaming, is a blast. I highly recommend this game.

SingStar is the quintessential party game. The game comes with two mics to encourage multiplayer fun. Playing solo might be a good way to practice and upload some epic performances on the SingStar Community, but invite a buddy and open a bag or Doritos and the fun is instantly multiplied. The problems with SingStar are minor, really, and aren't apparent if you don't actively look for them. The PS3 finally has its casual-player friendly titan that gamers shouldn't miss out on.

SingStar PS3 is an almost perfect party game, then, that will go down a treat with your friends and can be the making of a social gathering. The series has been updated well for Sony's next-generation console, and despite a few flaws - the flawed track list being the biggest - it's hard to grumble with what is, after all, dangerously compelling entertainment.

Cheat Code Central (May, 2008)
In conclusion, SingStar for the PS3 is the most complete entry in the series thus far. The singing mechanics that you have always known and loved are still the same, but SingStar makes leaps and bounds in the areas of downloadable and user-generated content. What makes this title so great is that it really focuses on tailoring the experience to the user: you decide what songs you want, what media to save, and are even able to upload it. There are many ways to customize your experience and that is what makes SingStar for the PS3 so remarkable. So if you're into karaoke, or planning a party sometime soon, SingStar for the PS3 is a must!

Extreme Gamer (Jun 01, 2008)
Aside from complaining about what songs did and didn’t make the cut, Singstar is a solid and fun game to experience. If you enjoy singing along with music on the radio or simply Karaoke, Singstar is worth the purchase. After a few days of practicing by yourself, I’m sure you’ll be hosting your own parties, downloading new tracks and having a lot of great moments with Singstar. The only reason not to buy this game is if you don’t enjoy Karaoke, or don’t own a PS3, aside from those two categories everyone who wanted to sing along with their favourite stars should become a star with the PS3 debut edition of Singstar.

Fragland.net (Feb 06, 2008)
With SingStar for PS3, Sony has succeeded in refreshing the trusted formula. MySingStar Online, the SingStore and the slick new interface will certainly appeal to a wide audiece and fans of the series will certainly appreciate the changes made. The tracklist is also a success; therefore I can wholeheartedly recommend this latest addition to the franchise to fans and newcomers alike.

Jolt (UK) (Jan 08, 2008)
Coupled with alcohol, SingStar is definitely an improvement now that it’s on PS3, even if that’s simply because it’s all shiny and new and you can pretty much create your own collection thanks to the SingStore. And who wouldn’t want to be able to create their own karaoke set-up? You can be singing Hawkwind and Graham Coxon one minute, Pussycat Dolls and Scissor Sisters the next. Just don’t attempt to sing Macy Gray at 3AM. Your neighbours will shout at you and your hungover mates the next day.

GamingTrend (Jun, 2008)
SingStar continues in the same vein as the previous titles, good and bad. The online mode is a huge improvement to this title but download times have to be addressed. If you are a fan of the previous titles you will also like SingStar, but be aware that this outing isn't going to revolutinize your playing experience.

4Players.de (Dec 21, 2007)
Ja, SingStar ist und bleibt auch auf der PS3 im Kern das SingStar, wie wir es schon seit 2004 kennen. Aber alles wirkt frisch, modernisiert und der Community-Ansatz mit dem Hochladen eigener Videos und Bilder inklusive Bewertungssystem gefällt mir richtig gut. Das gilt auch für den herrlich aufgeräumt wirkenden Store, in dem ich endlich selbst entscheiden kann, für welche Songs ich mein Geld ausgebe - und das sogar zu halbwegs fairen Preisen. Neben Einzelsingen sind auch die Mehrspielermodi wie Battle, Duette und "Gib das Mikro weiter" wieder mit dabei und sorgen für Partystimmung. Allerdings hätte Sony mit der PS3-Premiere ruhig noch mal "back to the roots" gehen und einen Karrieremodus spendieren können. Auch vermisse ich die Möglichkeit, Songs in einer Liste anzuordnen und das Spiel damit quasi als Video-Jukebox zu missbrauchen. Und wäre es nicht auch noch mal schön, die Original-Gesangsstimme wieder komplett ausblenden zu können, wie es beim allerersten SingStar der Fall war?

IGN UK (May 20, 2008)
Aside from additions like the Rap Meter and Duet mode, SingStar hasn't really innovated much since the first instalment. Some might have expected this first PS3 foray to improve more within the core game but, for fans, it's hard to see how Sony could make it better. It's difficult to know without the community in place just how big SingStar's online features will be, but the tools are certainly enough to make it massive. SingStar is really a game for everyone - all ages, gamers and non-gamers and a YouTube generation more than ready to take performing in front of friends, and indeed the world, to the next level. SingStar on PS3 doesn't pack in cheap gimmicks, it simply refreshes and updates a winning idea, and it does that well enough to ensure no one will be disappointed with its efforts.
85
Singstar for the PlayStation 3 isn't fundamentally different from its predecessors but there is very little left to change for the franchise. With a great soundtrack and some long overdue online features, Singstar is a great continuation of the series.

Gamernode (Jun 06, 2008)
s it the best SingStar yet? Easily. The addition of the SingStore and community sharing make this one of the better sequel updates in music gaming.

Gamers' Temple, The (Jun 16, 2008)
SingStar is not necessarily a game in the traditional sense, but it does make for a great party activity and a good alternative to purchasing a home karaoke machine. If you want to have a good time with some close friends, it certainly delivers that.

GamersHell.com (Jun 03, 2008)
There’s not a lot to find at fault with SingStar on the PS3. True, keeping with wired mics is still a bother, and there isn’t any online play to be found. However, the facelift, Eye compatibilities and new social networking elements sets the game above other karaoke solutions on the Sony’s system; nay, any platform to-date. Playing on your own may be a bit underwhelming, but if gather up some friends, and download a few extra songs, you’re set for some entertaining action.

IGN (May 19, 2008)
SingStar doesn't scratch my itch for nailing a song for the perfect score, but that doesn't matter because that's not what this game is trying to do. Whether I was posing for goofy photos, trying to make my videos as absurd as possible, belting out a duet with a friend, or hopping around the room with a bunch of other IGN Editors, I was having a blast playing SingStar. I was never hung up on how many points I was going to have when everything was said and done. I still think there's room for improvement when it comes to online play and hard drive management, but Sony's addition of a sort by artist/song button command and vocal reduction option show that the company is down for addressing complaints and refining the product. SingStar delivers one of the most unique and engaging experiences on the PlayStation 3. It deserves a place in every karaoke fan's game library.

Gaming Age (Jun 03, 2008)
SingStar for the PS3 shows the promise of what this series will be like and what imaginative ideas Sony has in store for it. Of course I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't mention they've finally added the feature that I've always knocked the series for lacking: the ability to turn down or off the main vocals. Thank you Sony. This being said, the new additions allow me to do nothing but recommend SingStar for everyone out there who loves to sing. The SingStar future looks bright on the PS3.

Daily Game (Jun 07, 2008)
SingStar has good karaoke and non-multiplayer online functionality, but it enters a crowded field and is really just "more of the same." Sure, it's a good same, but karaoke is karaoke.
83
Gamer 2.0 (Jun 04, 2008)
It’s certainly a great time to be a gamer that loves music, as you’ve got Rock Band and Guitar Hero merging the immersion aspect of games and the great music together while games like SingStar and Karaoke Revolution handle the karaoke crowd. SingStar provides a compelling window to the living rooms of people around the world with its My SingStar online mode that sets it far apart than any other music game in terms of its community aspects. Add in a ton of songs that you can buy from the SingStore to extend your experience and you have a party game that has a good chance of being pulled out every time you have friends over. It’s a shame that there isn’t reach a more compelling offline mode to keep the fun going when you’re not in a party mood, but maybe that’s just when you’re supposed to play the other games you have in your collection.

1UP (May 27, 2008)
SingStar isn't a revolutionary game -- you're still just performing karaoke on your PlayStation. But uploading silly videos and watching other people's creations really adds a new dimension; it gives you what every karaoke star wants the most: an audience.
82
For those that enjoy karaoke and own a PS3, SingStar is a no-brainer and truly a must buy even with the concerns I have noted. It will cost you some cash to get a decent library of songs but the enjoyment that you and your friends will gain from rockin' out the jams will eventually pay for itself. SingStar is a top notch karaoke game and the online community features gives the game a dimension entirely new to the genre.
82
GameZone (May 21, 2008)
A major step forward for the SingStar franchise, the PS3 version of the franchise is well-conceived and nicely handled. If you are a fan of the franchise, and have a PS3, owning this is a no-brainer.

Giant Bomb (May 23, 2008)
Now, some of you are undoubtedly super-shy and would never dream of letting the world see you, in your bedroom, singing. That's fine. But if you're a little more extroverted and want a sanctioned location to look like a jackass, or if creatively creating 30-second videos to the delight or disgust of an online audience is up your alley, SingStar is kind of amazing. Just don't rock a Kangol hat and a wrestling belt when you sing--that's my thing.

Gamesmania.de (Jan 04, 2008)
SingStar-Spiele zu bewerten ist nicht ganz einfach. Wenn man die enthaltenen Songs wirklich mag, bekommt für den günstigen Preis von etwa 30€, vorausgesetzt man hat noch Mikrofone der Playstation 2-Variante, ein ganz gutes Spiel. Löst der Anblick der Trackliste bei euch aber bloßes Kopfschütteln aus, kann man von der Wertung getrost 15% abziehen. Die neuen Online-Features sind gut, aber das Angebot im SingStore ist zurzeit noch zu eingeschränkt und der Preis pro Song etwas zu hoch, um das Spiel wirklich von den PS2-Vorgängern abzuheben. Bis das Angebot im Store ausgebaut ist, raten wir eher zu einer der Genre-spezifischen PS2-Versionen. Dank kompatibler Mikrofone kann man später noch immer auf die PS3-Version umsteigen.

NZGamer (Dec 29, 2007)
On the whole it’s probably another case of trying to please everybody while not really pleasing anybody, but you’re really not going to buy this game for these thirty songs. You’re going to buy it because Sony has given us Karaoke, mixed it with iTunes and Myspace, and has a hunch we’re going to take all this and add a healthy lug of frivolity and alcohol. If we’re willing to invest in this recipe for a good time (and social suicide), then Singstar’s future has never looked brighter.
80
SingStar’s karaoke action may be somewhat limited in an era that follows the release of Rock Band, where so many other ways of playing are available. However, for enthusiasts who aren’t looking for anything that complicated (or expensive), SingStar should deliver some amusing Friday nights with friends.

GameDaily (May 27, 2008)
Make no mistake – SingStar on the PlayStation 3 is a party that shouldn't be missed. Pick it up, adjust your PlayStation Eye camera and get ready for singing infamy.

PlayStation Universe (May 20, 2008)
Regardless of its downfalls, SingStar offers a completely revamped track list featuring a plethora of artists both old and new, which gives a variety of choices to both gamers young and old. Though the generational gap between those songs is vast, it won’t prevent the youth of today from enjoying the classics of yesteryear and vice versa.

AceGamez (2008)
If this SingStar had been a PS2 game then it would be a pretty weak entry for the series. The tracklisting is just not as good as the original, a hard act to follow to be sure. But that doesn't matter any more, as the SingStore has made this the most essential version of SingStar to date, allowing anyone to create the ultimate SingStar party on their next-gen system. It may not push the system graphically, but when a group of mates get together and sing the night away, there's little else that can top it. Personally I feel that this is better than the recently released Vol 2, but that's all down to your preference on the tracklist. If you need a party, and you own a PS3, then SingStar is a great choice and, thanks to the ever-growing online library of tracks, will be even better a year from now.

Jeuxvideo.com (Jan 11, 2008)
Si le concept de Singstar se refuse toujours autant à progresser, l'arrivée des fonctionnalités online constitue de fait la révolution tant attendue. Entre la possibilité de composer sa propre liste de clips et la joie de pouvoir partager ses performances avec le monde entier, Singstar PS3 est plus que jamais le party game indispensable à tous les amateurs de convivialité musicale.

Thunderbolt Games (Mar 07, 2008)
All in all SingStar is a great game, instantly accessible with nothing to unlock, but plenty of downloadable content available online. The premise is a little simple, and it may get tiresome after a while without updating songs. The presentation is all on top form with official music videos, nice clean backgrounds and themes to choose from. The best thing about this game however is that it appeals to everybody, regardless of age or skill. Although some of the music videos and content online may be unsuitable for younger gamers. In terms of improvements the game may have benefited from a story/career mode to help extend the single player experience, but the main draw of the game will always be to play with friends and family. It’s a wonderful game to add a collection, and it exactly this sort of game that can give the PlayStation a lead over its rivals.

Boomtown (Dec 14, 2007)
It’s a real shame that the otherwise superb package (including duets where one of you have to sing the harmony) has been marred by a few small factors that should be easily fixed with a future patch, but ultimately the game still does have those issues now. It remains the best incarnation of the franchise (which you’d hope so) and since it can be picked up for the same price as the expansion disc outings on PS2 it’s practically a no-brainer for a SingStar fan, or even newcomer but the negatives, compounded by the fact that if you want to play your old songs in this version you’ll need to buy them all at the SingStore again (you can’t even put in your old disc and hit select like in the past) it’s a game that is still highly recommendable, has further potential, and could be something brilliant if SCEE support and upgrade it like it should.

Eurogamer.net (UK) (Nov 22, 2007)
SingStore and My SingStar are brilliant additions which significantly change the SingStar experience. Karaoke, downloadable content and social networking go together like pop music and shouting. It's a superb party game, and in our experience one you'll still be playing once the novelty of Wii tennis has worn off. An essential addition to any PS3 owner's Christmas list.

videogamer.com (Nov 22, 2007)
This is so far from Call of Duty 4 and Assassin's Creed it's like reviewing another medium, but it's still on the PlayStation 3, so get round your mates, put a limit on your credit card, turn up the volume and get ready to party like RTSs and FPSs never existed. Apparently you can play games on the PlayStation 3, but it certainly looks like a top of the range karaoke machine from where I'm standing, on centre stage in my living room stadium.

For its first appearance on the PlayStation 3, SingStar is good, but not great. The fundamental elements that made the PS2 versions so popular are all carried over here. The newly integrated online community and regularly updated DLC are both welcome additions. It would have been nice to see Bluetooth microphones available immediately, but at least the game is compatible with the previous generation's peripherals. It's just too bad that even the USB mics still aren't sold as standalone products. It may not be the greatest experience for solo pop star-wannabes, but SingStar is and always has been about being the life of the party.
75
GameSpot (May 23, 2008)
A short tracklist and the fact that there are already a dozen other karaoke games out there are the only knocks against SingStar. The presentation is top-notch, and the community features are neat, despite the hit-and-miss quality of the submissions. The amount of premium downloadable content available thus far is impressive as well. You might end up spending a pretty penny downloading new tunes, but you'll probably never need to buy another karaoke game again.

Game Chronicles (Jun 09, 2008)
After all where can you so easily immortalize yourself and your talents, or lack thereof, or check out the singing Storm Troopers and Chewbacca or the great duet of singing hamburgers. I really think this game should be used as a qualifier for American Idol as well as a fun game for parties.

Good Game (Nov 06, 2007)
If you’re a Singstar fan you’re going to want to take it to next gen. I liked a lot of the songs on this first next-gen disk. I had a lot of fun with it. I’m going to give this one seven warbling chooks.

Gamestyle (Jan 19, 2008)
SingStar virgins and hardcore fans could do a lot worse than start here, but for everyone in between, it may be worth waiting for the SingStore to fill before making the jump.

Computer Bild Spiele (Jan 02, 2008)
Da wäre eindeutig mehr drin gewesen. Es ist entweder verwunderlich oder bewusste Abzocke, dass Sony trotz des beträchtlichen Speicherplatzes, den eine Blu-Ray-Disc bietet, nicht viel mehr Songs eingebaut hat. Nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil auf der neuen Playstation 3 mit 40-Gigabyte-Festplatte keines der alten Singstar-Spiele für Playstation 2 läuft. Zudem sind einige der Videos arg verpixelt und mit Bildstörungen übersät. Nicht ein einziges der 30 Musikvideos läuft im hochauflösenden Modus. Auch da hätte sich der Blu-Ray-Vorreiter wirklich etwas mehr Mühe geben sollen. Auf der Haben-Seite steht jedoch das schier unverwüstliche Spielprinzip, mit dem Sie abermals jeder müden Party locker auf die Sprünge helfen.
58
Game Revolution (Jul 03, 2008)
The same can be said about Singstar’s PS3 release. There’s a lot of potential in the music store and there’s the much-needed ability to turn off the original vocals, but there’s also the same problems that have continued to linger: the lack of any rewarding single-player game being chief among them. Singstar is still the best party karaoke game for the consoles, but it doesn’t quite step up to the next-generation with confidence. Instead, it steps up the Brit Pop, and that ain’t what we want. Not what we really, really want. Really.
 
Darkstation (May 23, 2008)
Sure this isn’t the ultimate upgrade, there are still some areas where I would have liked to have seen more from the game. However in the end if your wondering if its time to upgrade to the Playstation 3 version of Singstar, this first entry is a great start and just show’s all of the great that is to come from Singstar on the PS3 in the future.
