You'll love it if:
- You’re looking for the ultimate karaoke game
- You love Just Dance and are looking for the same experience for your windpipes
- You often catch yourself singing when you’re alone
Not for you if:
- You’re a party pooper
- You don’t like to sing a lot
- You prefer dancing over singing
I’m the type of person who loves singing. Whenever I open Spotify, I always go for Ariana Grande, Sza, Adele…the list goes on. Let’s Sing 2024 is one of the games I was looking forward to this year, especially since I can annoy my husband while singing the same songs he hates over and over again.
Developed by Voxler and published by Plaion, Let’s Sing 2024 is the latest in the series of games most similar to Just Dance. These are yearly games which come out with updated selections of songs for the fans of karaoke around the globe–what’s not to love? Is this game as fun and enjoyable as Just Dance though? Let’s find out together.
Whether you’re a passionate singer or someone who enjoys an occasional karaoke night, Let’s Sing 2024 has plenty of content to keep you occupied. Just don’t expect top-notch graphics or the same level of quality and style that Just Dance offers.
A Rich Selection of Songs to Choose From
The most important thing in a karaoke game is the selection of songs to choose from. Similar to Samba de Amigo: Party Central, Let’s Sing 2024 offers a long list of popular songs from various artists and genres. Whatever your musical taste looks like, you’ll definitely find songs to sing along to here. Some of these include:
- Ed Sheeran & Elton John – Merry Christmas
- Tom Odell – Another Love
- GAYLE – abc (nicer)
- BTS – Dynamite
- Lady Gaga – Hold My Hand
- Billie Eilish – Your Power
- Queen – Another One Bites The Dust
- Imagine Dragons – Bones
- Shawn Mendes – When You’re Gone
- Kelly Clarkson – Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)
- John Newman – Love Me Again
- David Bowie – Life On Mars?
The base game includes a list of 35 songs, with more added as DLC and in the game’s VIP pass which we’ll take a look at a bit later. Overall, it’s a very diverse mix of songs, ranging from pop to ballads. Not bad, especially when you consider you’ll play many of these songs repeatedly to level up your avatar and unlock new customization features.
Getting the Game Up and Running
Unfortunately, getting the game to work is a bit tricky. In our case, we’ve had trouble pairing the Let’s Sing 2024 on the Nintendo Switch with the official singing app. We tried using both Android and iOS devices and we ran into issues connecting Let’s Sing 2024 to an external microphone, which was a bad start to our karaoke experience.
However, you can physically connect a microphone to your console and the game will immediately detect it. This means that you have plenty of options to make Let’s Sing 2024 work however is most convenient for you. The first time you pair your device, you’ll have to calibrate it a bit so that it detects your voice correctly, but once that’s done, you’ll be good to go!
Sing Alone or with Friends
Let’s Sing 2024 supports up to four players singing at the same time. This makes it the ideal karaoke game for you and your friends. But if you’re not in the mood for a party experience, you can always focus on the game’s Career mode and build your career as a pop star.
The game does a great job of simulating the journey from small beginnings with a singing instructor to performing on a live stage with fans cheering you on. It’s a neat single-player campaign that’ll keep you busy for a long time. However, it has a few odd design choices. For example, Let’s Sing 2024 will force you to sing certain songs in the career mode until you’ve performed well enough to move on.
This can be a bit frustrating if you just want to sing your favourite songs. But, you can just choose the Classic mode and sing whichever song you’d like. Surprisingly, there are plenty of creative ways to approach the same song selection, so good luck beating your high score again and again!
Unlocking New Customization Options
Just like Just Dance, Let’s Sing 2024 lets you customize your digital pop star however you’d like. You can modify your hair, eyes, facial features, etc. The usual stuff. Also, you can unlock a lot of hats, earrings, glasses, rings, and other accessories. Unlike Just Dance, this game features only your floating head and hands–you don’t see your body.
This looks a bit bizarre at first but it makes sense because it’s ultimately a singing game. Customization options are varied and suited to every style so you’ll find a lot of interesting items to grind points for. It’s a good motivation to level up your avatar and keep unlocking more and more cool stuff.
Access Even More Songs with the VIP Pass
Another feature similar to Just Dance is the VIP Pass, this game’s version of a premium service with additional songs you can access. While the songs rotate every few months, some of the songs you can access in Let’s Sing 2024 and its VIP Pass right now include:
- Ellie Goulding – Burn
- Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
- Calum Scott – Dancing On My Own
- Mabel – Don’t Call Me Up
- James Bay – Hold Back The River
- Paramore – Misery Business
- …and the list goes on.
The VIP Pass also unlocks the ability for you to compete with other players worldwide in leaderboards and access a few additional game modes. We’re split on this feature, just like we were in Just Dance. Let’s Sing 2024 is a paid game that encourages you to pay even more for a subscription.
The upside is that the VIP Pass doesn’t renew automatically, meaning that you can buy it for a month or two and forget about it when you’re bored without any issues. Whether you’re a fan of this feature or not will depend on how often you play Let’s Sing 2024, either alone or with friends.
Conclusion – Should You Try Out Let’s Sing 2024?
Let’s Sing 2024 is a game for a specific audience. You don’t necessarily have to be a gamer to enjoy karaoke nights with close friends. The game is very simple and intuitive in its design, making it approachable and enjoyable for all types of singers.
However, you need to understand that this is essentially just a singing game–just like Just Dance is a dancing game. If you’re okay with that, you’ll love Let’s Sing 2024 and you’ll look forward to every new song coming to the VIP Pass. Otherwise, you may want to look for a different kind of party game if singing is not your cup of tea.
