Conclusion: There is definitely a select market that Sony is trying to hit with this game, and it is the same market that is captured by American Idol each year. There is a current fascination with singing, and Singstar 80s is a great way to just go all out in your living room.
Conclusion: Both titles are excellent additions to the SingStar universe and are better compilations compared to the previous titles. If you enjoy the series as a whole or if you’re just coming onboard now, both of these games are perfect companions for your next party.

Pros: Slick layout, Swappable discs, Real music videos, Great at parties, Weak single-player mode, Requires SingStar mics
