Iâ€™m sorry to say that quite a few of us were looking forward to this one. Having gorged on all things Disney during our formative years (read: around the era of Aladdin and Lion King), we were eager to sing along to some of our favourite tunes. To properly test the game out, over a dozen Disney-friendly mates were summoned, to sing until their throats seized up.
As it turned out, singing Circle of Life from Lion King was far and away the highlight for all of us. Itâ€™s absurdly fun, as are a few other highlights. Unfortunately, there are only 20 tracks on here â€“ câ€™mon guys, Disney has rather more songs sitting around thatâ€™d be great to sing to. And whatâ€™s on here is â€“ in the finest SingStar tradition â€“ a bit of a mixed bag. Sure, the songs from Lion King, Aladdin, Little Mermaid, and Toy Story are good choices, but there are some â€“ such as the ones from Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella â€“ thatâ€¦well, that just arenâ€™t. And Winnie the Pooh? Really?
So itâ€™s a bit hard to totally recommend this one â€“ but at least you can pick it up for a fairly cheap price. Just make sure you go to the Warehouse â€“ itâ€™s only available from there. We had a good amount of fun with this game over the course of an evening, but Iâ€™m not sure youâ€™ll get much more mileage out of it. Perhaps itâ€™s best to rent, sing all the songs you want to sing, and then return it.
Of course, if youâ€™re a very diehard Disney fanatic, and know every song, youâ€™ll manage to squeeze fun out of everything on this disc. For the more casual person, however, try and get your hands on this disc some other way. Hereâ€™s the full track list:
