Is Let’s Sing 2021 one to sing about from the high heavens? Or should you run so far away? Find out in our Let’s Sing 2021 review!
Karaoke has long been a popular social activity, both at many of your local dive bars – pending the pandemic – as well as in video game form. Let’s Sing 2021 from Deep Silver is the latest entry in the long-running karaoke franchise, and it is now time to take it for a spin on PS4! You can play alone in the all-new Legends Mode or get a group of friends together to pop and rock out to the included 30+ tracks. There are songs here for all musical tastes and all ages. Is there enough in Let’s Song 2021 to keep you coming back for more?
For the most part, Let’s Sign 2021 accomplishes what it sets out to do. The UI is straightforward and makes it easy to get down to the singing. There are a variety of modes to play with your friends – in a socially distanced scenario. But for those times when you want to sing like no one is watching, Let’s Sing 2021 features a Legends Mode with 16 challengers, three basic challenges, and a final battle against each antagonist. You don’t see many karaoke games put that much effort into a single-player mode, but it is a welcome addition here! There’s even an option that will just drop you in a random mode when you don’t know what you’re in the mood for.
A staple of the Let’s Sing series is their companion app for mobile devices, and that app is still supported here. Everyone has a bunch of USB microphones from the Rock Band or Karaoke Revolution days just lying around, right? Wait… just me? OK. Got it. Well, if you aren’t like and don’t have a pile of microphones, the Let’s Sing Microphone app is here to save the day! Simply pair the app with your game session with a code (similar to how games such as the Jackbox series handle things), and you’re off to the races. In my testing, the app worked reasonably well. While I did notice some latency, after a quick recalibration, it was smooth sailing.
A karaoke game is nothing without a good mix of tunes to belt out and Let’s Sing 2021 delivers a memorable and diverse catalog. You’ve got modern hits like Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” or “Sucker” from the Jonas Brothers, Panic! at the Disco’s “High Hopes,” and more. There are also classics like “I Can’t Dance” from Genesis or Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose.” And if you want to expand your horizons, there are also DLC song packs available so that you can add even more songs in a good variety of genres.
Let’s Sing 2021 delivers another solid hit for karaoke fans worldwide. With its variety of gameplay modes for one to eight players, it’s hard not to find something to play with your group of wannabe superstars. The track mix is good, and singing with either a USB microphone or the companion app is consistent. Let’s Sing 2021 is available now for the PS4 with a $39.99 asking price.
