Go on, admit it – you love ABBA. You turn the dial up when an ABBA song comes on the radio, you sing ABBA loudly in the shower, you even wish you were old enough to have seen them perform live!

With simple lyrics and catchy hooks, this Swedish pop group become immensely popular worldwide and are one of the world’s best selling bands with over 400 million albums. Singstar ABBA was a no brainer of course and it would have to be a sure thing that this won’t be the last band specific Singstar game to be released.

Singstar Abba is a collection of Abba’s 25 greatest hits with ABBA fans bound to find a song they like. I did think this would be the first time I would manage to beat my fiancee in a game of Singstar, so after booting up I decided to throw down with Mamma Mia, in my opinion the greatest ABBA song ever! Of course I proceeded to receive a severe ass beating. After picking my ego up from the ground, it suddenly dawned on me that a mono toned sports jock is never going to be a successful Singstar champion.

After playing through the more popular of the ABBA songs, it’s apparent that two thirds of the songs here will not get any play time at all. Which makes you wonder was it really worth releasing a full disc, or could Sony have gotten away with releasing a Song Pack to download? I would have expected Singstar Abba to have come in at a slightly cheaper price point than your standard Singstar games, but that was not the case. Unless you are a die hard ABBA fan, I’m just not sure that this compilation is worth a purchase.

  1. I was alive when these songs were released and believe me they are all a great selection of Abba songs.
    For those of us that remember them being released there is possibly only two duds on this disk.
    I disagree with the review and say this is a great collection of Abba Songs.

    I was never an Abba fan but somehow know all the words. My wife loves every song and this disk gets a lot of play time.
