Summary

So another Let’s Sing game hits the PlayStation 4. As with all singing games, the playlist is going to play hard into a purchasing choice. Luckily that decision is a lot easier as the game name tells you what you get, Yep that’s right it’s all Queen songs! The list is a collection of the hits and a few not so hits. Back to the game and it plays really well, Connecting up a phone to use as a mic has never been easier and works well. If you are expecting new mechanics and features then you are going to be let down. Yes, it’s easy to pick up and play but it is the same game you played last year and the year before. In short, it has no innovation but keeps the core accessibility and introduces party play with Ai support so everyone can get involved. It’s still a robust easy to use the system but here it feels like a DLC collection rather than a new game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
