SingStar Rocks (Playstation 2) [Sony Computer Entertainment - $49.99]
For those wanting to explore their, um, artistic side, Sony has released SingStar Rocks for the Playstation 2. Sure, the Karaoke Revolution series of games has been around for quite a while at this point, but where SingStar trumps those games is in its tracklist and its ability to feature the original artists on their songs. I guess it helps to have one foot in the music biz and one in video games. To that end, the variety in this edition of the SingStar series is unprecedented, careening wildly from Coldplay to Skynard to Hole(?!) to the man himself, yes, it’s the Fresh Prince on “Summertime”. Seriously, there’s music here for all tastes, making this the perfect 2AM New Year’s party game for you and your talented-in-their-own-mind friends. [Amazon]
