Ha-ha-ha, ever get the feeling you're two left-feeted?
We’ve previously intimated (erm, blatantly declared actually) that
we cannot dance, but we can muster a reasonable warble every so
often. Put the two together simultaneously, however, and it’s like
watching a giraffe on an icerink.
This second escape for SingStar from doing what it does best
wouldn’t have to do much to better SingStar Guitar gameplay-wise.
Good news for dance bunnies is it does. With specific routines for
songs that are challenging to follow at first, but can be learned –
just like any dance steps, the Move does what it promises.
However, back to this singing and dancing simultaneously thing.
Putting aside issues of coordination, we couldn’t work out how we
were supposed to hold the mic gob-wards whilst also tackling the
choreography. So, we thought, “Hmm, we need a Madonna mic”. But
SingStar mics are not Madonna mics. So we tried packing-taping
one to the side of our bonce. Having discovered it didn’t work so
well and subsequently yanking it off, we now have something
resembling a Phil Oakey hairdo. Big yays. Not.
So enjoy, those of you blessed with dextrousness. We can, at least,
make do with this functioning as a track pack for other SingStar
releases. Mind you, whilst Guitar redeemed it’s brokenness
with an awesome tracklist, the one for Dance is myopic. It
obeys its title, but doesn’t stray anywhere near, say, rock, indie
etc. Also, more than half the 30 songs are already available
elsewhere, making it weak in the add-tracks-to-the-library
But, at least it delivers what it claims, and does it quite well.
Sigh. If only we’d been blessed with balance, grace, poise,
