There's a good chance that if you are reading this, it is because you already have a SingStar
game and you just want your injection of country lovin'. But if you are new to the SingStar
world, let me give you a briefing. SingStar Country
is purely a karaoke singing game and tends to be more of a party game than a single player experience. Gather your cowboys and cowgirls together and you've got yourself one helluva rodeo here. Basically, there are no unlockable songs or anything like that, just a list of songs to choose from. Select your mode and style of play and you are off and running.
First, decide whether to Sing Solo or with other players. If you choose to Sing Solo, then you simply select your level of difficulty and whether you want to sing the normal or short song length, then away you go. In a party situation, you have multiple choices. You can select between Pass the Mic or Team Games. Within Pass the Mic, you will face rounds of challenges including Battle, Medley, First to the Post, Duet, Keep It Up, Micro-Medley and Pass the Mic. The challenges range from hitting a high score, to keeping your performance bar above a certain range, to fighting it out with another player to get the best score on a certain song. Team Games is the same thing, you can just have more players (up to 4 per team) and you will form Red and Blue teams. You can also play Freestyle, which doesn't score you.
If you are really proud of your performance, you can save it and hit Playback to watch it over as many times as you want. If you like tweaking with things, then you can add a range of sound effects to your recording, anything from voice changers to special effects. If you have an Eyetoy camera, you can see yourself performing in the background instead of the music video.
