    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 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'sAssuming you can get past the part of having to buy the SingStar mic, it's a pretty fun game.

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.

  1. 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.

    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.
  3. 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]
