"Sing It: Family Hits"

By Armand Usagi

 

I want to start this off by saying that I have a horrible singing voice, and will not play this in multiplayer mode. I bought this game for my roommate who is a big fan of karaoke and stuff and would probably have never even attempted playing it, if it weren't for this blog. Having said that, this game can be a lot of fun for those of you who know the Disney Animated Films and like to sing.

 

The menus are simple to navigate. The graphics are colorful and can be a bit distracting, depending on which theme you have activated. The first thing you are going to want to try out is the Vocal Coash mode with Anika Noni Rose.

 

The Vocal Coach mode has 3 different sections including, The Basics, Challenges and Games. The Basics help to teach you how to warm up, hold the mic and get used to the way Sing It works. It is actually quite amusing with the way she teaches these things. The Challenges goes into more difficult aspects of singing like, different pitches of you voice, singing faster or slower and holding longer notes. After completing these sections you can play in the Games section that continue to help improve you voice. The games include Sliding, Memory Master, Copycat, Silly Sounds, and Rhythm.

 

The main game mode is called Sing It. In this section you will choose from the list of songs that you want to sing and your difficulty setting. Once you have chosen a song, you will enter singing mode with the lyrics appearing at the bottom as well as showing you what pitch you should be singing in. The rest of the screen will be scenes from the song and movie that the song is from.

 

Here is the complete list of songs available:

1. 101 Dalmations - Cruella De Vil
2. A Bug's Life - The Time of Your Life
3. Aladdin - A Whole New World
4. Beauty And The Beast - Be Our Guest
5. Cars - Our Town
6. Cars - Real Gone
7. Cinderella - A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes
8. Cinderella - Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo (The Magic Song)
9. Cinderella - So This Is Love
10. Cinderella - The Work Song
11. The Jungle Book - I Wan'na Be Like You
12. The Jungle Book - The Bare Necessities
13. Lady And The Tramp - He's A Tramp
14. Lilo and Stitch 2 - Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride
15. The Lion King - Can You Feel The Love Tonight
16. The Lion King - Hakuna Matata
17. The Lion King - I Just Can't Wait To be King
18. The Little Mermaid - Under The Sea
19. Mary Poppins - Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
20. Monsters, Inc. - If I Didn't Have You
21. Mulan - Reflection
22. The Princess And The Frog - Almost There
23. The Princess And The Frog - Dig A Little Deeper
24. Peter Pan - You Can Fly! You Can Fly!You Can Fly!
25. Sleeping Beauty - I Wonder
26. Sleeping Beauty - Once Upon A Dream
27. Toy Story - You've Got A Friend In Me
28. Toy Story 2 - Woody's Roundup
29. Toy Story 2 - When She Loved Me
30. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh - Winnie The Pooh

 

Unfortunately there is only the one villain song, which is always my favorite part of the Disney Animated Films. From what I have read, there will be no DLC (Downloadable Content) packs for the PS3 version. The reason for the lack of songs is that this game was also released for the Wii at the same time and with less disc space for the Wii, they were not able to put as many song selections in the game. I think this is a huge downfall for this game. I would have like to have seen some DLC for other films and maybe a special Villains pack.

 

In Part Play you have 3 modes. Together where you will play with another player. Showdown where you will play against one another for the highest score. The last mode which is Solo and is exactly the same as the Sing It mode.

 

Overall I think this is a fun game and a nice change from all the Disney Channel pop songs that have been coming out for Sing It. If you are a fan of Disney and Karaoke this will be a must have for you. The only downside to this game is the limited song list and no foreseeable DLC packs in the future. As a PS3 title it does have many trophies for you to shoot for. I played this game for a few hours and even with my horrible singing voice, I was able to get 7% of the trophies. I will let you try and guess which ones there were.
