      A must have for any singstar and/or Disney fan

      Singstar is a really great game to play with a group of friends. It's a great way to get the party started, and also to come home to at the end of a night when you're just not ready to go to bed! This Disney version (probably aimed at a much younger audience) has been a huge hit with my friends (all around 24-26).

      The only issue I have with it is its selection of songs (listed below). Some, like 'A whole new world' from Aladdin, is the obvious choice and probably the one most girls would want to sing along to. On the other hand from The Little Mermaid they didn't choose many people's favourite 'Part of your world'. Finally some songs, although good choices, don't work well multi player, as while one person gets to sing all the lyrics another is left with weird background sounds!

      Overall, a fab game if you grew up on these Disney movies and love sitting around with your friends pretending to 5 again!

      The songs on this game are:

      *101 Dalmatians - Cruella De Vil
      * Aladdin - A Whole New World
      * Beauty and the Beast - Beauty And The Beast
      * Cinderella - Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo & The Work Song
      * Lady and the Tramp - He's A Tramp
      * Peter Pan - Following The Leader and You Can Fly!
      * Sleeping Beauty - I Wonder and Once Upon a Dream
      * Tarzan - Son Of Man
      * The Aristocats - Ev'rybody Wants To Be A Cat
      * The Jungle Book - The Bare Necessities and I Wan'na Be Like You
      * The Little Mermaid - Under the Sea and Kiss the Girl
      * The Lion King - I Just Can't Wait To Be King and Circle of Life
      * Toy Story - You've Got A Friend In Me
      * Winnie the Pooh - Winnie the Pooh

      Good fun for all the family, but could have been so much better

      Genre : Sing a long
      Target audience: One for the kiddies
      Players: 1 - 8
      Network play: no network play

      Singstar Disney combines my two greatest loves in life Disney and computer gaming. Sold for the PS2 console you also need to buy yourself some Singstar microphones before you can play this game. Let the humiliation commence. Also compatible with the USB eyetoy but this is not a necessity.

      Tracklist

      * 101 Dalmatians - Cruella De Vil
      * The Jungle Book - I Wanna Be Like You

      Singstar Disney has a wide range of tracks from popular Disney films for you to sing along to from ballads, to Randy Newman, Elton John and up tempo tracks. My issue with Singstar is that there are such a mass of Disney songs out there that the potential was huge, while they may have selected some great songs there are also plenty that they have missed. Twenty songs doesn't seem like much to offer when there are so many out there.

      Blisfully, rather than listening to yourself catcalling along to the Disney classics, the original versions are here too. In fact, in reality, you don't even have to sing the words. I've found it you just hum along for a while you still earn points, which I suppose is cheating a little but what can I say.

      Gameplay

      Pass the mic : up to eight players compete by you guessed it passing the mic so everyone gets a go. Not really much fun for the other players who have to sit around waiting for it to be their turn again.

      Battle : Go head to head to score the most points and beat your opponent into the ground with your epic singing skills.

      Duet : Combine your skills and sing together. Good fun for those who lack the competitive need to succeed.

      A word of advice. Avoid playback. If you wish to retain any sort of dignity do not use this feature. Stripped of the comfort of the original vocals, playback allows you to listen to just yourself mumbling into the mic. It isn't pretty. The quality of the microphones isn't exactly brilliant and they do little to amplify your voice.

      How you play

      While clips from the movies play, the words come up on screen and you sing along with them. Your pitch is classed as either awful, bad, good or cool depending on how well you hit the notes and a bar on screen shows where you are in relation to where you should be. It's pretty simple stuff and is easy to pick up. The kids will love it and adults can have fun playing along too.

      What I would have liked is a wider selection of songs to sing to as this selection certainly won't last long. Songs are available to play either in long or short version. There are also medleys on offer which are a selection of tracks mixed into one, not exactly seamless track.

      Most of the appeal in this game comes from the entertainment value of hearing yourself belting out all the Disney classics, it's not meant to be hardcore gaming, it's just a bit of fun. Great for kids parties and a bit of family fun.

      One feature missing from this version of Singstar is the ability to interchange disks while playing. Usually you can change to different versions without having to restart the system however in the Disney version this is not possible.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Worth buying if you can pick it up cheaply

      Singstar is fabalous entertainment when you have your friends over to see who can make the biggest fool of themselves. In addition, if you have the compatable camera you can upload your videos onto the internet for the whole world to see.

      I already own a variety of the Singstar releases including the Abba & Queen versions. I wouldn't normally buy the Disney version but saw it on special offer at Argos for a mere £2.99 so though I couldn't go wrong really. Although this is the PS2 version, it should be noted that after a recent upgrade to the Singstar application, all PS2 versions will now also play on the PS3 which is very handy meaning you don't have to get rid of your singstar titles when you upgrade.

      On the whole, this title is alot of fun & contans alot of familiar songs we have all come to love from the disney films. I wouldn't pay the full £20 I think this title would normally cost as I don't think it's worth it for that price but if you can pick it up cheaply like I did, it will offer you a few hours of fun with your mates.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not bad

      I'm not really a games console person but when I was introduced to singstar on the playstation 2 I was hooked. I bought myself a second hand playstation, microphones and a couple of singstar dvd's. I'm a huge Disney fan so it only seemed normal to buy the Singstar Singalong with Disney dvd which was released in 2008.

      I bought it from Amazon for around about £10. You can now purchase it for £8.61 which is a great price. Anyway it arrived a few days later and I was very excited and looking forward to it.

      So basically this dvd gives you a chance to singalong to some of your favourite disney songs and have a karaoke night in your front room with family and friends and who doesn't like to sing along to disney songs. On the dvd there is 20 original tracks and music videos.

      It can be played from 1 to 8 players in party mode, sing solo mode, battle mode, freestyle and mode. Each performance is monitored and you score points for hitting the right notes and the long notes. If you dont want to be scored then you can choose the freestyle mode and sing till your hearts content without and pressure. At the end of the song it tallies up how many points you get then tells you what you are i.e amateur, hit artist, superstar, singstar. And i'm sure everybody is the same as me and tries in vain everytime to get the top marks and be named 'singstar'. On the couple of occasions I have acheived this I've danced a merry jig round my front room.

      Tracklist

      101 Dalmations Cruella De Vil
      Aladdin A Whole New World
      Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast
      Cinderella Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
      Cinderella The Work Song
      Lady and the Tramp He's a Tramp
      Peter Pan Following the Leader
      Peter Pan You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!
      Sleeping Beauty I Wonder
      Sleeping Beauty Once Upon a Dream
      Tarzan Son of a Man
      The Aristocats Everybody Wants to be a Cat
      The Jungle Book The Bare Necessities
      The Jungle Book I Wan'na Be Like You
      The Lion King The Circle of Life
      The Lion King I Just Cant Wait to be King
      The Little Mermaid Kiss the Girl
      The Little Mermaid Under The Sea
      Toy Story You've Got a Friend in Me
      Winnie The Pooh Winnie The Pooh

      Now alot of these songs are great and are some of my favourites, I think that this dvd had a lot of potential but I think they didnt do it justice. Some of the songs on here are hard to sing and for me not as well known as some of the ones they could have picked. I do have fun singing along to some of the songs but they only picked songs from 14 of the disney movies and by 2006 there was 46 movies to pick from. I guess I'd like to have seen a couple of different Little Mermaid songs on there and at least another from Beauty and the Beast which I think are excellent films with great soundtracks. And maybe even one from Snow White in place of Sleeping Beauty as those songs are hard for an adult to sing never mind for a child (in my opinion).

      This dvd is for 3+ and was greatly enjoyed by my 7 year old niece so it did please someone, it just didnt totally live up to expectations with me unfortunately.

        i still dont think this is the best Sing star out but if you like singing and you have little children or brothers or sisters then this singing game will make them happy as they will know most of the words to sing to

          Only really for die-hard Disney or Singstar fans

          SingStar is a PS2/PS3 karaoke-style game with marks out of 10,000 at the end of each song for your performance. There are over 20 different discs, such as ABBA, 80s, 90s, girlbands vs boybands, and Rock Ballads. There's even a Bollywood version, High School Musical discs and an RnB edition, so there really is a disc to suit everyone!! This review is of the 'Singalong with Disney' disc, which is only out as a PS2 game, although I've used it on our PS2 and PS3 and it works fine on both (you need to have at least one PS3 Singstar game to enable your PS2 games to be uploaded though).

          *There is some overlap of this review and my review of the ABBA Singstar disc as they, obviously, involve the same gameplay*

          ~The basics of SingStar~

          To start playing SingStar you need to buy the microphone additions that plug into your PS2/PS3; these can be bought either separately or in combination with a game and are good value as they are hardy - ours have lasted 4 years, including numerous parties (although we don't have any children). On inserting your game disc you have a short intro of Disney music and then the welcome screen pops up. After entering the players' names, you get to pick your style of karaoke: you can sing one-by-one, sing simultaneously against another player ('battle'), or play a range of variations on the theme in team 'pass-the-mike' style contests. We nearly always play battles, as it's less embarrassing than singing by yourself and we like competitions.

          The song selection screen helpfully plays snippets of each song as you scroll through and, if you're like me, you'll probably recognise more songs than you realised from their titles. Once you've picked your song, it's time for the combatants to take to their mikes and prepare to sing.

          The songs play with the music video on the screen (so for this game you get a lovely Disney movie clip). The lyrics are at the top and/or bottom of the screen for you to follow, and there are grey bars overlaying the music video in the middle of the screen. These grey bars are the notes you are supposed to be singing! They highlight in red or blue (depending on your mike colour) as you sing - the nearer your red/blue line is to the grey line the better you're singing and the more points you'll be awarded. At the end of each phrase the computer will give you a mini-grade from 'cool' to 'awful' to give you an idea of how you're doing! Each player has a score at the top of the screen, which gradually clocks up as you progress so you can see who's winning so far.

          At the end of your song, the scores are counted and you get a final score screen telling you your mark out of 10,000, as well as who the winner and loser are - you each also get a SingStar grading from 'totally SingStar' via 'wannabe' to 'tone deaf'. As you can change the marking setting between easy, medium and hard, and you can clearly hear the original singer singing the song while you're singing, SingStar is actually a lot easier and, therefore, more fun than real karaoke. Finally, there are options to re-listen to your singing (it's recorded) and mess around with the recording, giving yourself alien voice effects etc. Then it's time to pick your next song...

          Be warned that this game is surprisingly addictive as you keep thinking 'I can score better than that' so you try again... and again... My husband first bought me a Singstar game to cheer me up when I was feeling down. I'd never done karaoke and didn't even want to sing in front of him but once he'd convinced me to try it, I didn't stop for SIX HOURS and that was only because I was losing my voice! I've seen this effect over the years on many of my similarly competitive friends, most of whom you can't get off the mike at parties once they've got the first song under their belts.

          ~Tracks~

          So, the all important question (it's much easier and, therefore, wiser, to sing a song you know well) - what tracks are on the disc?

          Cruella De Vil - from 101 Dalmatians
          A Whole New World - from Aladdin
          Beauty and the Beast - from Beauty And The Beast
          Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo - from Cinderella
          The Work Song - from Cinderella
          He's A Tramp - from Lady and the Tramp
          Following The Leader - from Peter Pan
          You Can Fly! - from Peter Pan
          I Wonder - from Sleeping Beauty
          Once Upon a Dream - from Sleeping Beauty
          Son Of Man - from Tarzan
          Ev'rybody Wants To Be A Cat - from The Aristocats
          The Bare Necessities - from The Jungle Book
          I Wan'na Be Like You - from The Jungle Book
          Under the Sea - from The Little Mermaid
          Kiss the Girl - from The Little Mermaid
          I Just Can't Wait To Be King - from The Lion King
          Circle of Life - from The Lion King
          You've Got A Friend In Me - from Toy Story
          Winnie the Pooh - from Winnie the Pooh

          This is quite a good, wide selection from the best known Disney movies, although there are a couple of songs that I suspect only die-hard Disney fans will be familiar with.

          ~Overview of the 'Singalong with Disney' disc~

          I would say that this is the hardest Singstar disc out of the 10 we have, which was a bit of a surprise! Although I vaguely recognised all the songs, and knew quite a few scarily well given I'm 30, singing them was a completely different matter as many of the songs are actually very difficult to sing. A few songs are impossibly high (even for someone who sang soprano at school), such as 'I Wonder' and 'The Work Song', the latter of which is the mice singing on a level of communication with bats. Similarly trying to sing the backing African chants to 'Circle of Life' produces endless amusement for anyone watching your efforts. This is not the disc to choose if you like high scores! Others, on the other hand, such as 'Following the Leader' and 'Winnie the Pooh,' are very repetitive, which quickly bored us.

          I'm a massive Disney fan so I had really high hopes for this disc when we got it, but I would say, although this CD is still good fun (and there are a couple of songs I absolutely love singing), the novelty quickly wears off and people are usually put off by scoring a good 2,000-3,000 points less than they score on other Singstar discs, so switch discs pretty quickly after a couple of songs. I think that there are much better Singstar discs out there that you are more likely to keep going back to above this one.

          Currently down from £19.99 to £14.66 on Amazon, this is quite a bargain so if you fancy a novel addition to your Singstar collection, or perhaps have young children who love the Disney movies and don't care too much about scores, then you may want to buy this disc. Otherwise, I'd recommend the 80s, Rocks, Rock Ballads or ABBA games as better options for long-term enjoyment.

          Thanks for reading!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            difficult songs to sing

            I first purchased the singstar game because my sister had one and I thought it was great fun. I got it as Its good for parties as its just like a karaoke just more fun as it also rates you on the notes hit. I first bought the 80's disk and the r 'n' b one so I thought the disney one would be good for any children around the house at parties, my sister is 5 and my cousin is 6 so I thought this game would be suitable for them as it says 3+ on the front.
            The track list could be better, there are more disney songs which could of been added. The ones already on are:
            101 Dalmatians - Cruella De Vil
            Aladdin - A Whole New World
            Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast
            Cinderella - Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
            Cinderella - The work song
            Lady and the Tramp - He's A Tramp
            Peter Pan - Following the Leader
            Peter Pan - You can fly!
            Sleeping Beauty - I Wonder
            Sleeping Beauty - Once upon a dream
            Tarzan - Son of Man
            The Aristocats - Ev'rybody Wants To Be a Cat
            The Jungle Book - The Bare Necessities
            The Jungle Book - I wanna be like you
            The Little Mermaid - Under the Sea
            The little Mermaid - Kiss the girl
            The Lion King - I Just Can't Wait To Be King
            The lion king - Circle of life
            Toy Story - You've got a Friend in Me
            Winnie the Pooh - Winnie the Pooh

            There are different settings to choose from including duet mode and battle mode. You can also pick the level to play (easy,medium or difficult) I put it onto easy and my sister and cousin couldnt play it, it was too hard, as they didnt know all the words they could only sing the chorus etc as thats all they knew and the song didnt go any slower than the origional when on easy as I thought it would seen as though it says its for 3+.

            No adults wanted to singalong with disney only the classics (circle of life/a whole new world) and the children just couldnt keep up. So now it is just sat in my cupboard collecting dust. I would only recommend this game to children who no the words to the songs already or are at an age where they can read the words quickly enough (8+ I would suggest)

            So althought I love the singstar I think the singalong with disney game isn't up to standard.

            One to buy only if it's really really cheap

            I love the singstar games, it's great to get down to a bit of karaoke in your living room. I got this from Argos the other day for £2.50(ish) and I have to say I'm really glad I didn't pay more.

            Although looking at the track list on the back you'd think it would be a good selection of songs, when it comes to actually singing them it's not that good at all and there's only a few that I would even consider going back and singing again (beauty and the beast, the one from aladdin).

            The problem is that whilst everyone knows the songs, the actual lyrics are quite complicated. Take 'I wanna be like you' from the Jungle book, the lead singer has all of the lyrics whereas the backing singer spends 3 minutes making monkey noises. It's the same with 'Circle of life', great lead vocals, really really hard backing vocals.

            I know this is probably aimed at the kids and given practice they'd do ok but I'm not sure they'd bother with it too much. I'd probably say that this is good for single player as you'd get to sing the lead vocals and not have to bother with the dodgy backing lyrics...

            2 stars overall, most disappointing.

            Fun for all, especially the little ones. Add it to your Singstar games.

            Do you remember the Sing-A-Long a Disney videos from the 90's which focussed on specific films before the films were actually released on Video. Well this would be it's more modern Grandson.

            Singstar Singalong with Disney has 20 Original tracks with video footage taken from the original Disney films.

            I will resist listing the tracks as DooYoo recommend that you don't use lists, but the 20 tracks are taken from 14 Disney Films. The Majority of people's favourite Disney Songs will be in here although there are a few good ommisions;
            Can you feel the love tonight is a good song from the Lion King which is missing as is Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid. Be Our Guest from Beauty & the Beast could also have been put on here. Especially when you bear in mind the majority of Signstar games have 30 songs & not 20.

            The songs all play pretty well. Some of them are abridged for their orginal movie format to make them a bit more song friendly. Because of this some of the songs aren't exactly as you remember. I think the best song on here, which is unchanged & as you will remember is Under The Sea from the Little Mermaid. Try to resist trying to take off Sebastian's accent.

            Over all, not the best Singstar game that there is although it is a good addition to the family & by far the best for young children. Plus if Argos are still selling them for £4.99 which is what I paid, you can't go wrong.

              Disappointing, but can be fun for the few decent tracks on the disk

              I've been a fan on SingStar for some time now and own all but a couple of the titles released so far, however, this Disney version was rather disappointing and rarely gets played.

              I actually bought it for my 8 year-old daughter who loves SingStar and loves Disney (especially the 'princesses'). Before giving it to her I wanted to try it out, and was quite happy at first on trying a few favourites from the more recent Disney films like Aladdin, Lion King and Beauty & the Beast.

              However, once I got past those 3 or 4 good ones I struggled to find any more that I wanted to sing. There are a LOT of songs from the earlier classic Disney films, like Snow White & Sleeping Beauty, etc and they are extremely hard to sing....and compared to the songs in the modern films, they are quite poor songs (in my opinion).

              When I ordered it, I had just assumed it would be the 'big' songs from the more modern films for today's kids. It was perhaps my bad for not reading the track list properly.

              In the end, I ended up buying my daughter another present because I didn't think this was suitable for her. I'm not sure it's suitable for adults either...if you prefer the classic disney film songs then this may well be the game for you, but personally, I was disappointed with the song selection.

              its fun but lacks depth

              Singstar is a great family multiplayer game for the Ps2, its basically karaoke that scores you! and in this song pack, it is Disney songs! When i first heard of this coming out i was so hyped because i loved disney songs and they were fantastic, and to be able to sing along to them would be perfect!

              Upon buying this game, i was slightly disappointed with the short tracklist consisting of only 20 songs, and each of them is rather short. It also lacks some pivotal tracks from Disney such as Pocahontas, Mulan and Hercules. The videos are high in quality, shown whilst playing the song, and the fact that they used footage from the films was excellent and very thematic.

              It must have been copyright hell for producing this, so it should be commended for the really good songs such as Beauty and the Beast, Tarzan, Aladdin (must have), Lion King and sleeping beauty whichwill get you through hours of fun.

              Whilst it would've been great to get the full 30 tracklist, it is a good addition nonetheless and gives scope for a future edition which can then fulfil my appetite! The lack of great songs is only minimal.

              You can purchase this for around £10 and is certainly worth it!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Overall a fun game, but other Singstar games better

              I have been a fan of Singstar ever since it was first brought out, so I have tried many of the different Singstar games. For those who don't know, before getting a Singstar game, you need to buy the microphones first, which cost am extra 20 pounds.

              Singstar is basically karaoke, where you actually have to sing in tune to earn points. There are three modes - Solo, Party (for 2 or more players) or head to head. Once you have chosen which mode you want to play, there is then a choice of difficulty to choose from. There is then a choice of songs, but if your'e playing in Party Mode, you aren't allowed to choose the song you want to sing, so if you don't know the song that's been chosen, you can use a shuffle token to change the song, but be careful, as you only have a certain amount of these to use! As the song plays, it shows the video in the background with lyrics on the top or bottom on the screen, depending with microphone you are using. There are then bars, showing the pitch that you should be singing at, going across the screen, which you have to hit to earn points. Once you hit the bar, it fills up, showing you that you're in tune. This may sound complicated, but I promise you, it's incredibly easy to play! Just sing and voila!

              The price is 15 pounds, which I think is quite reasonable, seeing as most of the Singstar games are around 20.

              It is a great game to play at parties or with family, when there are 4 or more people. My friend bought me the Disney Singstar for my birthday and, as a huge fan of Disney, I was very excited to play it!

              The game includes songs from the classics, like Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, while also including songs from the more recent films, like Toy Story. The main problem that I found with the game was the choice of songs. Disney has made tons of movies, yet six films have been given two songs each - Cinderella, Jungle Book, The Lion King, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan and The Little Mermaid. Also, some of the songs aren't as well known as other songs that they could have chosen. I didn't really know "Son of Man" from Tarzan or "I wonder" from Sleeping Beauty, among others.

              On the whole, I think this game is fun for all the family, but it isn't the best Singstar game out there.

                good for youngsters and maybe partys

                At university Sing star was always a great hit when we were all a little bit broke but wanted a laugh. Being from a family with younger siblings i also recognise that Sing star is a great game to play with the family. What i find most Sing Star games lack is variety, and when Disney Sing star came about i was overly impressed. As a huge fan of Disney i was very keen to purchase the game and so i did, and it was not the most expensive Play station 2 game i have purchased so i was impressed. Sing Star has a variety of songs from different Disney films, such as classics from The Little Mermaid and Beauty and The Beast, to newer films such as Hercules and Toy Story. What i thought the game lacked however was a bit more variety, there was two tracks from the lion king, two from the jungle book and two from the little mermaid, then no songs from Dumbo, or any Disney Pixar other than Toy Story one. I felt the game was not as up to date as it could be, but it was still great fun. I definitely recommend stitching somebody up by making them sing the player two in The Lion Kings - Circle of Life. The game i found is widely enjoyed by the family but is not really to be played often, i think since Christmas i have played twice with the family, but a good game to have especially if you have youngsters who love Disney films.

                Good game but should have had different songs on!

                For those of you who don't know, Sing star is a game in which you have to sing and match the notes it shows on screen. It's a bit like karaoke, but you get marked for your performance! As the song is playing it shows the video in the background with lyrics on the top or bottom on the screen, depending with microphone you are using. As you sing your bar get's filled up with colour (red or blue depending what player you are) which shows what pitch you are singing. The bars are the actual pitch you should be singing and you get more points for matching these.

                I love singing (though not to anyone as I don't have an amazing voice!) but me and my sister recently decided to get some sing star games and the microphones. When we were out shopping we found this Sing star sing-along with Disney game for £15, which we thought wasn't too bad as its only about 2 pound cheaper online and it was worth buying when we could play it when we got home. The tracks that this game has on it are:-

                - 101 Dalmatians - Cruella De Vil
                - Aladdin - A Whole New World
                - Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast
                - Cinderella - Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
                - Cinderella - The work song
                - Lady and the Tramp - He's A Tramp
                - Peter Pan - Following the Leader
                - Peter Pan - You can fly!
                - Sleeping Beauty - I Wonder
                - Sleeping Beauty - Once upon a dream
                - Tarzan - Son of Man
                - The Aristocats - Ev'rybody Wants To Be a Cat
                - The Jungle Book - The Bare Necessities
                - The Jungle Book - I wanna be like you
                - The Little Mermaid - Under the Sea
                - The little Mermaid - Kiss the girl
                - The Lion King - I Just Can't Wait To Be King
                - The lion king - Circle of life
                - Toy Story - You've got a Friend in Me
                - Winnie the Pooh - Winnie the Pooh

                I love Disney films and when we got home we put it on straight away. It comes with options such as solo mode, party mode (2 or more players) or head to head. Don't be fooled by thinking this game should be for kids. It has much loved favourites from year of growing up!

                I have sung every one of these songs and think as they go it's a pretty good game. I do think that they shouldn't have put some on there, such as sleeping beauty songs as they are very hard to sing! Even in easy mode. They could have picked well known songs that would have fitted in better. I don't find it hard to sing the songs, though some do have a few high notes and some can be hard to sing, such as the lion King - Circle of life song if you are player 2 and singing the harmony!

                Although this game isn't as great as I have expected, I wouldn't say no to have a belt out! I guess its better if you know all the films because then you'd know the songs...I haven't seen the lady and the tramp, sleeping beauty, Tarzan or the little mermaid much but have tried each song anyway! Disney is all about fun so try having some when playing this game.

                  More thought should have gone into the song list

                  When I heard that there was going to be a Disney singstar I was over the moon. Disney and Singstar, two of my favourite things in one place!

                  However when I bought the game I was pretty dissappointed.

                  There are some classic Disney songs on the game (all listed below), yet alot of them aren't that easy to sing along to.

                  It would have been better if they had put some more well known songs on the game like more classics from the Little mermaid for example "Part of your world", or "Be our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast, or what about classics like from Mary Poppins, "a spoonful of sugar" or "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! (I wonder if that's how you spell it). These would have been great songs to sing along to!

                  I think even younger players might be dissappointed with the game as I doubt many little ones would know the melody or words to some of the older songs.

                  This is the short track list -

                  101 Dalmatians Cruella De Vil
                  Aladdin A Whole New World
                  Beauty and the Beast Beauty And The Beast
                  Cinderella Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo & The Work Song
                  Lady and the Tramp He's A Tramp
                  Peter Pan Following The Leader and You Can Fly!
                  Sleeping Beauty I Wonder and Once Upon a Dream
                  Tarzan Son Of Man
                  The Aristocats Ev'rybody Wants To Be A Cat
                  The Jungle Book The Bare Necessities and I Wan'na Be Like You
                  The Little Mermaid Under the Sea and Kiss the Girl
                  The Lion King I Just Can't Wait To Be King and Circle of Life
                  Toy Story You've Got A Friend In Me
                  Winnie the Pooh Winnie the Pooh
