  1. If that isn't a pair of dream tracklists, I don't know what is.
  2. 90
    It's the closest thing to karaoke perfection I've seen yet.
  3. It really (for us, at least) holds very little appeal when by yourself. With a group of friends though, it’s easily the most fun you can have with a PS2.
  4. Yes, all of these songs came out in the decade of neon. Not all of these will fit your taste, but that's the way it is. Do not buy this game alone, it should be seen as an expansion to another Singstar title.
  5. You'll need to be mad on '80s music. If you're not, don't touch this with Simon Le Bon's. If you are, it's loads better than Popworld and well worth the cash. [PSM2]
  6. Singstar 80s is a good solid experience that I believe most will just really enjoy.
  7. Similarly, it's cool that you can hook up an EyeToy and record yourself; if only the PS2 had a supported hard-drive and higher resolution EyeToy camera - like the PS3 will have.
  8. SingStar 80's is laser-targetted at hen parties, 20-somethings and drunks - and works much the better for it. [Nov 2005, p.116]
  9. An awesome nostalgic package. [Nov 2007, p.86]
  10. SingStar '80s is a natural progression for the series and a more light-hearted alternative to the aggressive post-pub fare of Pro Evo and the like. If you've always yearned for an excuse to dig out those pink leg-warmers, then this is for you. [PSW]
  11. Singing 80's karaoke could not be better. Nothing new in the gameplay, but who cares. [Jan 2006]
  12. As it stands, while very good, SingStar ‘80s is not overly indicative of the time period in the music world. Still, it offers a solid collection of tunes that karaoke singers will thoroughly enjoy performing.
  13. 75
    If you're in the mood to scream the lyrics of a Duran Duran classic or try to keep up with Nema, this is the title for you -- everything that's in this game is available for you and your friends as soon as you unwrap the plastic.
  14. Having the real music and the real music videos is both an unexpected plus and an unexpected minus.
  15. If only they would hear my plea and allow me to turn down the master track.
  16. SingStar '80s' track list is still too wide-ranging to keep you from burning out on the small handful of songs that you'll enjoy singing.
  17. If Sony could offer more tracks per release it'd be worth the money, but as it stands it feels a little overpriced for the existing fans who'd be more than justified in feeling a little brassed-off with the idea of spending more on what is essentially the same game as last time with new tunes.
  18. The score at the bottom is almost irrelevant, because I expect almost anyone reading this will already know whether they will enjoy this game or not.
  19. Sony's latest SingStar doesn't add any frills to the package, but it does have a delightful mix of '80s pop and rock classics.
  20. 70
    The technology behind Singstar needs to improve; charging $49.95 for what is essentially a cd is fairly expensive. However, the game is still incredibly fun and addictive in multiplayer, plus the songs are some of the best yet.
  21. To some, SingStar 80's is pure nostalgic bliss, but it needs more content.
