  1. For those that enjoy karaoke, or who enjoy SingStar games and own a PS3, SingStar Vol. 2 is most likely a no-brainer and you might well treat yourself.
  2. To the dismay of fans everywhere, here’s another Singstar-title with no ambition to innovate. Being able to buy songs through your PSP is a nice nuance, but the new duet-mode is the one great feature in an otherwise familiar package. A set of great and fun songs saves this title from earning a really low grade.
  3. Whether you want to fork out for that will depend, as ever, on your approval of the track listing.

    Overall, SingStar Vol.2 is a step in the right direction, if only because it’s slightly better than your average sequel on the PS2.
  5. SingStar Vol. 2 offers up more of the same, but at $40 isn't worth the purchase price when you may only tolerate half the tracks available, if that.
  6. 70
    SingStar Vol. 2 is a tough sell. Although it has a wide berth of exclusive (and fun to sing) tracks, it offers little in improvements over Sony's six month-old release.

    Like a new season of American Idol, the first thing you notice when you pop in SingStar Vol. 2 is that it's curiously similar to the last one. [Holiday 2008, p.82]
  8. There's not that much more here aside from 30 new tracks for the game that are not available from the online store.
  9. 58
    I just wish it had more material. To compete in a genre with games that offer so much more for so much less, SingStar needs to bulk up. It's possible, however, that Rock Band killed the karaoke star.
  10. Owners of the first part better hold on to their money and buy songs they really like in the SingStore.
  11. When you get down to it, SingStar Vol. 2 just doesn’t make sense as a purchase if you own the original SingStar PS3 and have a broadband connection.
  12. There's honestly no reason to pick up this release short of getting the songs in HD.
