The singing game play in SingStar Queen was better than the singing elements included with popular video games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero. You can belt out the high notes as only Freddie Mercury can in 25 popular Queen songs and strut across the stage to the screams of your fans.

The Parts of SingStar Queen That Need Improvement
SingStar Queen is one of those great PS3 games for living your singing dreams, but figuring out how to do the harmony segments of the songs is difficult and takes practice.
SingStar Queen doesn't ship with any online playability or content to add to the entertainment of singing as Freddie Mercury. This omission is something that definitely brings down the playability of SingStar Queen and the entertainment value of playing it over and over. Games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band have an advantage over SingStar Queen in this area of game play options.

SingStar Queen is a very entertaining production that has a limited amount of playability because it only includes a small selection of 25 songs to sing. Once you have played and sung the included Queen songs, there isn't anything else to do, accept sing them again. You do need to focus when singing the songs, especially if you're playing with a friend. Songs like Bohemian Rhapsody feature complex, multi-tracked harmonies and SingStar Queen's simple Karaoke style interface will take getting use to.
