  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. To some, SingStar 80's is pure nostalgic bliss, but it needs more content.

    Assuming you can get past the part of having to buy the SingStar mic, it's a pretty fun game. The collection of songs is almost perfectAssuming you can get past the part of having to buy the SingStar mic, it's a pretty fun game. The collection of songs is almost perfect without any real clunkers like so many other games have although more songs would have been nice. Having the videos for most of the songs was great. I prefer the way the lyrics cross the screen in Rock Band and Guitar Hero to SingStar but it's a minor complaint. Also would have been nice to have a ten name top list for each game instead of five.
