If there are two things I like way more than I should it's Disney and karaoke videogames. Unfortunately, my love for Disney doesn't extend to their cable network, so my enjoyment of the last three Disney Sing It games has been limited -- I mean, there's only so much Hannah Montana a grown man can handle. So I was more than reasonably excited to hear that Disney Sing It: Family Hits would feature songs from the studio's huge catalog of animated films. This game has been a long time coming, and it could have been awesome if there weren't some things holding it back...Before I really get into this, we all know what a karaoke game is, right? You sing, you get points, it's exactly what it sounds like and it's been a genre for seven years now. Moving on...Family Hits features 30 songs spanning 60 years of animated classics. The game is available for the PlayStation 3 and the Wii, and both versions are basically the same, except that the PS3 has HD footage and camera support. Normally developing a title for multiple platforms isn't a big deal, but in this case it causes some of the game's problems...The fact is that if the idea of singing Hakuna Matata in your living room appeals to you (as it does for me), then you'll enjoy Disney Sing It: Family Hits, at least for a while. It's definitely a game for the littlest of kids and the Disney fanatics, but these songs are way better than the pop stuff that has filled the previous games. If this game had an online store, or any community features, I could recommend it to everyone, but it really just doesn't have enough to stay fun for more than a night or two.
