Let’s Sing: ABBA

Gimme, gimme, gimme a... break?

It’s getting close to that time of year once again, you know that “festive period” and is starting to become a bit of a tradition Ravenscourt are back with a new instalment of their Let’s Sing series.
This time it’s another single group focused affair, as ABBA takes the spotlight with a collection of the groups most iconic songs, being given the Let’s Sing karaoke treatment, so it’s safe to say this game is a pure breed party game once again.  If you have played any of the past Let’s Sing games, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting here, as it’s an almost carbon copy of them, but with ABBA content.

If you’ve not experienced them here’s a quick rundown of what you get with the game: a handful of modes mostly built around singing with your mates; where you pick a track, the music video plays in the background and you try and belt it out, aiming to score points by staying in pitch while singing into a mic, headset or your phone.  Because the Let’s Sing series is a bit clever on the input options front with an app that turns you phone into a microphone… so everyone can play; which is a really good feature especially if you have a room full of jolly party people.  Now any of the Let’s Sing games is going to live or die by its track list and when your game is based on ABBA, you can bet you’re going to get a few crowd pleasers.  It has a good cross section of the groups back catalogue featuring Waterloo, Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Fernando, Gimme…Gimme…Gimme just to name a few.  But as always is the way with Let’s Sing games, there are a few tracks missing that you would expect to be included annoyingly.  Once you get brave enough you can head online to battle some of the “best” singers at the game, which adds a bit of life to thing beyond the party focus.

Let’s Sing: ABBA is the identical template from the past three iterations of the series, but it’s very much a case of if it’s not broken just leave it, as Ravenscourt have nailed the framework and are just slipping in new songs and artists.  This could be argued that it should really be DLC for the main line game Let’s Sing 2021, instead of a standalone title.  That aside, break this one out this festive period and you’re sure to have a good time.

An Xbox review copy of Let’s Sing: ABBA was provided by Ravenscourt’s PR team, and the game is out now on Xbox, Switch and PlayStation for around £35.

The Verdict

6Fair

The Good: Good selection of songs | Lots of input options | A hit for Abba fans

The Bad: Cookie cutter title in a lot of ways | Not moving things on for the series | Missing a few songs you’d expect to be there
