SINGSTAR THE WIGGLES
PS3 (also on PS2)
Great idea! The
Wiggles is for toddlers, so we invited a bunch over to get their
Wiggle on for an informed revie-AMELIA! DUNKING THE MICROPHONE IN
‘CORJIGAL’ WON’T MAKE IT SOUND ‘FUNNERER’! We didn’t think it
Little kids are amazing in their ability to destroy stuff-JAKE! THE
PS3 ISN’T A TOASTER! Could SingStar The Wiggles distract them
long enough to leave Gamesblip HQ in some semblance of non-wreckededness?
More or less, yes. There’s nothing particularly different about this
to other SingStar titles, except it’s bulging with Wiggles
songs. But only 25, and at an average length perfect not to lose a
tyke’s concentration, that’s hardly mega-content.
But don’t the kids love it! Busy Hot Potato-ing and Big Red Car-ing
their little lungs out whilst we had a chance to save our stuff.
Somebody needs to start a business toddler-proofing places - if you
end up doing it and gross dollar one, remember us when we’re
slumming it under a bridge, yeah?
Look at the (measly 10) trophies and this is billed as SingStar
Junior, implying difference to regular SingStar. It
doesn’t seem more lenient, as even when we tried our guts out on
‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ we couldn’t SingStar it, yet we can
ace Ultravox’s ‘Vienna’. When you consider that few toddlers can
actually sing, they just bellow words in jazz time, it makes for
some sooky-sulks come score time.
Meanwhile, you can’t swap in other SingStar discs, but you
can pop The Wiggles into regular SingStar seshes,
which may prove handy.
It’s amazing what two former Cockroaches, two other blokes and some
brightly-coloured skivvies have accomplished. They saved our joint
from ruination, and the joy on those kids’ faces jumping around like
loony-lites was precious.
Fuck we’re soft.
