Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful Game

If you’ve ever had the urge to tap you feet and sing along whilst watching a Disney movie – Rejoice!

Disney Interactive Studios finally brings out a sing it which includes all those infectious songs we have grown to love.

Disney Sing It: Family Hits includes songs from classic movies such as “The Jungle Book” and “The Little Mermaid” as well as newer hits from the likes of “The Princess and the Frog” and Disney Pixar collaborations.

With over 20 songs to choose from, there are plenty of family favourites to sing along to, although many of the more popular tunes did not make the cut – and are replaced instead by less memorable alternatives. The potential for extra songs via downloadable content is obviously something that is expected in modern music games, but right now there is nothing to be found. It would be disappointing if Disney passed up the opportunity by not supporting this in the future. If downloadable content was available it would have definitely added to the games current longevity, hopefully Disney considers this in the near future as more movies/songs come out.


Every song includes a video montage of the film in HD which is great but I don’t understand why it did not correspond to the scene from the movie.  It would have been nice to have the option to choose this – but either way the footage looks amazing on the PS3.

After each song you can choose to review your performance by watching the tracks Disney Montage video back but with your own audio on top. This encore mode will let you tweak your vocals during playback by adding cool affects. If you want to have some fun then there are three settings which allow you to manipulate your voice. You can choose the Robot – which makes your voice sound “mechanical”,  the mouse – which makes you r voice sound squeaky,  or the Lion – which makes your voice sound deep and husky.

Disney Sing It: Family Hits offers a number of different game modes to keep players interested – from singing solo to having a full-on sing-a-long with family and friends.  The game supports up to eight players at once. There is an option for a duet – which enables you to sing with a partner, or you can opt to sing as a team – either together or against each other in a Sing-off. Like the “Sing It” franchise, the game includes the option to plug in a Playstation Eye so you can see yourself on screen – but maybe this is the one Singstar game where watching the Disney Montages would be more appealing than watching yourself!

The always helpful vocal tutorial mode is great for those new to the series, especially younger players. This time the vocal tutorial is hosted by none other than Anika Noni Rose – the beautiful voice of Princess Tiana in the “Princess and the Frog”.

Overall

Being  a massive Disney fan myself, any game which allows me to sing along to my favourite Disney movie hits gets massive thumbs up from me. Disney Sing It: Party Hits is the perfect party game for family and friends with fantastic graphics and great audio. If you are looking for a good excuse to sing a duet with you loved ones, then I highly recommend adding this Singstar game to your collection.

Disney have hit all the rights notes with this one and this title offers an interactive game which complements their timeless films. The game won’t fail or disappoint and is certain to delight Disney fans of all ages.

Loves games i work for a Game store for the last ten years too so i am a all game girl

    I LOVE singing games, and I’ve been waiting for a Disney sing it with actual Disney animated movie songs to come out since the first sing it. Why can’t they put this on the 360? I guess I can always get it for the Wii, but then I have to buy a new mic and everything.
    Bah. I’ll just put on my Beauty and the Beast soundtrack and sing myself.
