Disney Sing It
I really enjoy choir practice at my church, so singing games fit right under my umbrella. This video game appears on the Wii, Playstation 2 (PS2), Playstation 3 (PS3, and Xbox 360. Since the Disney name was on this game I expected it to be clean and safe, especially since the ESRB put no descriptors on it. Boy was I shocked to see some of these women gyrating around with not enough clothing on in these music videos. I did some checking and found that even Disney has gone farther away from modesty with their musical artists. MTV may have worse videos, but the ones in this game are taboo in my house. Singers like Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, Jesse McCartney, and Aly & AJ are included as well as songs from High School Musical movies (editor: thirty-five tunes in all).
I had a little fun with Disney Sing It by showing certain songs/music videos to different people. At the exact same point of the song every single person asked: "where are their clothes?" Bear in mind they were not naked, just dressed in a lustful manner. Add in the fact that many of the women are very skinny, and I believe it sends little girls the wrong message about their bodies.
Disney Sing It has a lot of songs about love in it. However the context of that love seems to translate more into lust. I have trouble with a 15 year old singing one song about leaving a boy for a mistake, and then another about staying with him forever no matter what happens. I also have an issue with how fast many of the songs are even on the easy mode. If you know these songs then you will probably understand the cadence much better.
There are a lot of songs that are playable in Disney Sing It. Disney Interactive Studios also included some different game play modes like singing with friends. My problem with the replay is the messages in a lot of the songs. Those should have warranted a 'T' rating in my book. I know some will say there are worse, but if you keep pushing that line farther away from God, you never know where you will wind up.
Disney Sing It has friendly controls with intelligent screens. I did have some problems with the microphone. At times I thought I was singing just like the game, and it did not register. I even turned the volume of the TV up, and put the microphone up to it - that did not register much better. Then other times I was talking and hitting all the notes perfectly. Maybe it was just me.
I had such high hopes for Disney Sing It, and they were dashed to
pieces. The music video direction with the wardrobe selections, and many
of the lyrics are the downfall of this game in my opinion.
