This is the latest entry within the Let’s Sing series, this time focusing entirely on a singular group. With that, you get thirty of the greatest Queen songs in one area and they really do have all of the hits I would have expected. It’s actually quite impressive, and if you’re a fan of the band in a karaoke/singing sense then this one delivers.
You get all of the modes, and ways to sing along that you would expect from this series that has grown over the generation. You’re able to play alone, or with others using a number of methods. This includes using your phone with their app or plugging in a microphone too.
The core of this is mostly singing along and trying to get the best score. There’s the classic area, Mixtape 2.0, feat, Jukebox, World Contest and Let’s Party. Each of these sort of mixes up how you engage with the music, but I’m mostly about just jumping in and enjoying the songs without too much variation.
For those that want it, they offer a fair selection of options to play. That’s about all there is to say about the core package, it’s got music and some ways to mix things up if you want to interact with the songs in differing ways. What’s even more impressive is that these are the actual tracks.
This works functionally quite well when it comes to interacting. Using the app you place a code in, then sing a little to sync and get rolling. You can of course use a microphone if you have that ready. I thought it handled well, and accurately. You’re able to play alone, or with up to eight players.
It’s a local multiplayer experience, just so you are aware. There are leaderboards for comparing to others online if you want to be the best. It contains sleek menus, and some customization options including avatars. The video aspects in the backdrops are music videos.
It feels authentic in that regard, and they do deliver the hits. You get everything from “We Will Rock You” to “Bicycle” and “Under Pressure” which includes Bowie lending a hand. You of course get “Radio Ga Ga”, “Another One Bites the Dust” or even “Somebody to Love”.
It’s an impressive offering and I’m surprised they were able to get all of the essentials. I couldn’t think of anything they were missing here. With that, it would have been nice to see some adjustments to the experience to match that of Queen more.
Let’s Sing Queen delivers all of the greatest songs of the band, offering many ways to sing along and engage with the music. It feels authentic to the group, offering music videos in the backdrop. I would have perhaps liked some sort of historical aspect to along with this, that might have been interesting.
Some context as to the music or even the group, something along those lines would have been beneficial. It also would have been neat to see some theme options that matched the band better. It’s a good package here, great songs and if you like a karaoke situation it can be fun.
It doesn’t necessarily do anything wildly new with the formula, but there’s a good selection of options in regards to how you can play the music. I think they put together a neat concept, and I’m not sure there are many other groups that this would work with. It’s an impressive catalogue of music, and a rocking time.
