SingStar Rocks- Playstation 2 (Released 2006)

SingStar Rocks is one of the funest PS2 games out on the market. It isnt the first, but after the great love of the first SS, others were released including Rocks. Rocks includes a range of rock songs from the 80's to today.

The game has a large range of songs, which the track listing is different for each country, for each wishes to add their own bands. The international track list though, is as follows:

Bloc Party "Banquet"
Blur "Song 2"
Bowling For Soup "1985"
Coldplay "Speed of Sound"
Deep Purple "Smoke on the Water"
Franz Ferdinand "Do You Want To"
Gwen Stefani "What You Waiting For?"
Hard-Fi "Hard To Beat"
Hole "Celebrity Skin"
Jet "Are You Gonna Be My Girl"
Kasabian "Club Foot"
Keane "Everybody's Changing"
Kings of Leon "The Bucket"
KT Tunstall "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree"
Maxïmo Park "Apply Some Pressure"
Nirvana "Come As You Are"
Queen "Don't Stop Me Now"
Queens of the Stone Age "Go with the Flow"
Razorlight "Somewhere Else"
Scorpions "Wind of Change"
Snow Patrol "Run"
Stereophonics "Dakota"
The Bravery "An Honest Mistake"
The Cardigans "My Favourite Game"
The Hives "Hate to Say I Told You So"
The Killers "Somebody Told Me"
The Offspring "Self Esteem"
The Rolling Stones "Paint It, Black"
The Undertones "Teenage Kicks"
Thin Lizzy "The Boys Are Back in Town"

The menu is used with the PS2 controller and the mircophones are plugged into the USB port below the controller port. Each song has the lyrics on screen as well as the music video in the background. There are music bars on-screen and the decibel of your voice must match the bars, this is done by trying to sing in tune. There are also different modes to play with including Solo (sing songs by yourself), Duet (sing the same song with a friend) and Pass-the-Mic (a few different mini-games with the songs with the capability of up to 8 players).

I love this game, i dont own it, but will soon and then I can play all i want lol. This game is great for solo fun or for parties.

Score : 8/10

Hmmm, not sure I could tolerate the music.

The only track I like is "Paint It Black" by the Rolling Stones. Scorpions "Wind of Change" is pure early 90s german cheese - but quality in that sense!
