Review For those of you who have played previous Singstar games, absolutely nothing has changed here, so you can just move along - you know what you are getting. For those of you who have not, you'll be happy to know that the controls are fairly simple. First you'll decide if you plan to play single player, in party mode, or freestyle. Once that is decided you'll use the D-pad to navigate the menu system, tapping the X button to make selections. Honestly, there are only two things that are counter-intuitive - the fact that you have to back out to the main menu to change the difficulty level, and that you have to use the same difficulty level for everyone in your party. This is a problem when you play with two teams of four people as it is likely that somebody will be the ringer and want to play on Hard while everyone else hums along on easy. It'd be nice to be able to do something similar to the Face-Off mode in Guitar Hero II, allowing players to select a difficulty that matches their skill level...SingStar Amped! continues in the same vein as the previous titles, good and bad. While the game doesn't make any huge improvements other than the soundtrack, it also doesn't make any new mistakes. If you are a fan of the previous titles you will also like SingStar Amped!
