Summary

So another singing game hits the PlayStation 4. As with all singing games, the playlist is going to play hard into a purchasing choice. We got hands-on with the base game and all current DLC, For me personally, it had a few good songs but generally, it wasn’t all for me. 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 its 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.

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!
