    Review Performous

    Have you ever heard about SingStar, the classic game with several installments that gained fame thanks to its appearance on the PlayStation console? You have to know that we can similarly have fun on our computers. This is through Performous, a title born precisely for users to demonstrate their artistic and vocal talents from the screen.

    There are many elements in common that we will find between SingStar and Performous in case we have enjoyed both entertainment platforms, considering that the operation is almost the same. You will find, in fact, the main screen in which the lyrics of a song that you have to interpret appear, but with an extra difficulty, which is that the software itself can rate the way you do it.

    The truth is that we can not fail to consider that there were many criticisms that Performous received in its first versions, primarily due to the significant number of failures that showed at the time of the interpretations. Fortunately, that has been modified over time, and at this point, we are sure that it is one of the best alternatives we have at hand in Windows when we want to have fun singing.

    Performous has evolved into an open-source program, a massive advantage because we can generate our files and songs to sing later with colleagues. You will even find in the various network forums and communities a considerable amount of content that you can take advantage of to entertain you like never before.

    You will see that this system currently has songs that only have the virtual lyrics that scroll as the song progresses, while others even have the original video clip to make them more entertaining. Thanks to this complete entertainment proposal, Performous has become one of the main alternatives in karaoke programs for computers.

    What game modes does Performous offer? Several and everything will depend on how you plan to spend your time since you can choose between the Duel Mode or the Individual Mode , in which you have to face the intelligence of the system, which will measure how well you have done according to how faithful you have been to the notes of the chosen song. Of course, you'll need a microphone connected to your computer.

    There is not much to add about the Duel Mode, taking into account that its name makes it clear that it is an alternative in which we will sing a song ourselves and each of our friends later. From that moment on, a competition starts in which the program will analyze the coincidence with the times and notes, scoring the different players until a winner is determined.

    Finally, if you still don't feel confident enough for the system to be grading your performances, you should know that there is also aPractice Mode that you can put into operation to check how well you do without the pressure of doing well. Indeed, this possibility of accessing up to three modes makes Performous an excellent choice for all users.

    As for the interface of this utility, we must say that we did not expect too much, and we have not found too much since it is a simple image in which we barely have access to several functions in the Main Menu. You can select whether you want to Play , Practice or access the Options game settings. A negative issue of Performous that has not finished convincing us has to do with the fact that not only does the program not have built-in songs in its original version, but also, although finding some of them on the web is not complicated, then it does take too long to be able to add them to the application. We must follow a complicated tutorial, which is quite annoying, at least at the beginning.

    In summary, Performous is one of the best karaoke platforms for computers with the operating system Windows that we can access today, with several game modes and a vast amount of songs available on the web, even some of them with built-in video clips. If you don't find its adding song system annoying, you will find it an ideal ally for your entertainment.

    And keep in mind, although we have mentioned above, that if you want to enjoy this game and allow yourself to be rated by the game's intelligence, you need a microphone connected to your computer. It's the only way for the game to know how well you've done and score you on your performances, and thus to be able to compete seriously with your peers.
