    In terms of doing what it says on the box, SingStar Abba simply can't be faulted. [Jan 2009, p.99]
  2. If you like the music of Abba, this game will be your Elysium.
  3. In conclusion, Sony have released a great addition to the Singstar franchise and for those naysayers complaining about Sony's choice for ABBA, you really don't have to buy this game.

    If you are an ABBA fan then SingStar ABBA should be at the top of your list this Christmas - it's an essential addition to your collection. There hasn't yet been a game in the series that has been this focused and downright fun for people who enjoy the artist in question, and for that ABBA deserves as much praise as a karaoke game can get.

    It's a little sneaky that you can't buy the game complete with microphones but the chances are most people interested will already own a pair; otherwise this is as close to a sure thing as you can get with SingStar. The winner does indeed take it all.

    But credit given where credit is due, SCEA's packaging of one group's library(although hardcore ABBA fans might complain about a few song ommisions)on a single Blu-ray is actually more satisfying than SingStar's usual mishmash collections of songs. [Jan 2009, p.81]
  7. I would highly recommend that anyone that enjoys singing try out the series and if you love ABBA then this latest addition to the series is worth a look.
  8. This is a version dedicated to ABBA fans, presenting their greatest hits along with the videoclips, which all together demonstrate the style of this generation.
  9. 80
    Since the winning SingStar formula remaining untouched, this Abba version is a winner.
  10. All in all the list of songs tells the tale. If you like what you see, Singstar Abba is worth your money. If not, consider the other Singstar options.

    We managed to tear through over half the songs before my voice starting shutting down from overexposure to my bad falsetto. We were anything but bored. The songs are fun, the videos are hilariously bad, and a good time was had by all involved (except Tristan, who just seemed a little awkward through most of this).
  12. SingStar Abba is a good addition to the series and a heap of fun to play, provided you like singing as a female Swede.
  13. As a whole, SingStar ABBA contains 25 well known songs from the Swedish super-group. Even though the SingStar series is losing steam quickly, with a lack of wireless microphones and interesting SingStore options, this conceptual title manages to impress with its videos and slick presentation. Recommended for all ABBA fans out there.
  14. For those that enjoy karaoke, or those who are Abba fans and own a PS3, SingStar Abba is most likely a no-brainer of a purchase.
  15. 70
    Singstar ABBA will only appeal to ABBA fans, but anyone with even a passing interest in ABBA should have no hesitations in picking this game up.
  16. This will have limited appeal, and as such is not the strongest collection of songs to make the SingStar roster. If you are an ABBA fan, you will enjoy this. If you are not an ABBA fan, you would do well to leave it alone.
  17. The haircuts alone make SingStar Abba worth the asking price.
  18. I can imagine it now, the family sitting down Christmas afternoon watching Mamma Mia, then wanting to emulate it with SingStar, by the end of the night even granddad will be a dancing queen, and when all is said and done, isn’t that all we want?
  19. We're also disappointed by the lack of content about the band, interviews or other items that fans might enjoy.
  20. However, if you can’t wait to belt out “Dancing Queen,” “Fernando,” and “Take a Chance on Me,” then SingStar ABBA will hit all the right notes.
  21. Where are the mics? Why wasn't this released through SingStar's music store?
  22. ABBA fans, run to the store and enjoy! As for the rest of the masses, we could have taken the option to download the songs from the Singstar music store.
  23. Singstar Abba will no doubt appeal to a lot of people, however it will also turn some people off.
  24. Though it fares better than the last PS3 SingStar release (but only barely), the PS3 version of the game simply shouldn't exist outside of the SingStore
  25. 55
    SingStar ABBA has all the moving parts that make the SingStar games fun, but the scope is so limited that I only see a tiny audience really enjoying this title.
  26. The big problem is that the PS3 has the SingStore, where we could have downloaded only the tracks we wanted. Hence, tossing out what is essentially a track pack is pretty much useless to us.
