The following are quotes from forums regarding this singstar and it reflects what I thought and felt when I got my copy today and tried it:
“I was really looking forward to this, but unfortunatley the first copy I received the volume on the tracks was so quiet you can't hear the music, so I returned it to Amazon as faulty and they sent a replacement. The replacement is exactly the same, so either its a faulty batch or a big mistake by the makers of singstar!”
"Although this had the potential to be the best SingStar, there seems to have been one small change that really ruins it.
Everything starts well, but as soon as you start to sing, the volume on the backing track is lowered to the extent that you feel like you're singing without one. This takes all the fun out of it!"
I thought it was just me until the wife said it is actually happening. Worse still, I know I sound terrible but I really don't want it confirmed over the speakers!
However, if you are a die-hard fan AND sound really great – then this is a must have.
