Music has always been a huge part of my life, so I was extremely excited to get the opportunity to review Sing4 for the Wii. What is Sing4? Well, it's just like karaoke without all the drunken pervs pawing all over you...Or wait...Does that happen to everyone, or is it just me? Anyway, Sing4 is a great game for those who want to bring the thrills of karaoke into their own living rooms. This is awesome, since karaoke bars don't generally allow children and are full of the above described drunken, often tone-deaf perverts. The fact that it is played at home also opens up the world of karaoke to those who may be a little on the shy side and wouldn't feel overly comfortable belting their hearts out for all the world to see!
Sing4 comes with it's own special microphone, and offers over 40 chart-topping, current hits from the likes of Ke$ha, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, The Doors, and many more superstars! You can even download additional songs if you'd like! Once you've chosen your song, simply set the voice controls to your liking and sing away! That's right, I said voice controls. They're actually pretty cool. You can sound like you've inhaled a TON of helium, sing normally, enable pitch correction, and more. While you're singing, Sing4 tracks your progress and you earn points for singing the songs on point. Another thing that also makes Sing4 unique is that you can play in "Juke-Box mode" which shows the music videos for the songs. Sophie, my 2 year old, LOVES music videos, so this is an awesome feature. She had a blast dancing to all the awesome music on Sing4!
My 11 year old, Kyle, wanted me to take video of him playing Sing4 to demonstrate how cool this game really is. He's not the best singer in the world, but he's having fun and that's what counts!
