SingStar ’80s

Thunderbolt Games
14 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Karaoke. Perhaps the single most effective means of enjoying whilst simultaneously humiliating yourself in public. It’s one of those pastimes which, although mildly enjoyable on your own, is exponentially more pleasurable with one or more friends, much like paintball or orgies. SingStar , along with the EyeToy was one of Sony’s first attempts to tap into the casual market back in 2004, and since its first release there has been approximately eighteen hundred differing...

SingStar 80’s

DarkStation

  • 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. Sure you may not have the voice of a Madonna but it is still fun to try. Singstar 80s is a good solid experience that I believe most will just really enjoy.

SingStar '80s Review

GameSpot
20 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Sony continues to establish a foothold in the American market for its SingStar karaoke franchise with two more releases, SingStar '80s and SingStar Amped. The former ought to be self-explanatory--sing your favorite cheesy pop songs from the 1980s--and the latter focuses on classic and contemporary rock music. Both of these games are essentially identical in feature set and presentation to the last two SingStar games, Pop and Rocks!
  • Pros: Solid lineup of familiar '80s hits, Menus easily navigable for SingStar veterans
  • Cons: Same no-frills feature set as all previous SingStar PS2 releases, Package feels limited in comparison with download-based next-gen music games coming

SingStar '80s

Project COE

  • 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. While we patiently wait for the PS3 version to hit, there are a lot of new songs here to master. You really can’t go wrong with both of these highly entertaining packages.

SingStar 80's

Game Revolution
10 September 2007
  • Excerpt: The Song Remains the Same Breaking out a karaoke machine (which SingStar really is) at any party is a lesson in human psychology. Most regard microphones the way cavemen regard monoliths. First, there is feigned disinterest and denial. Everyone either can’t sing, has a horrible voice, or boy, will you look at the time… Then, signs of curiosity.
  • Pros: Slick layout, Swappable discs, Real music videos, Great at parties, Weak single-player mode, Requires SingStar mics

SingStar 80's

Playstation Illustrated
19 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Another few months pass by and, like clockwork, another iteration of SingStar is released. The latest is targeted at fans of the music of the 80's titled simply SingStar 80's - and what a collection of tunes it is! Several songs, like Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time and Madonna's Material Girl , we've seen already on Karaoke Revolution , but not by the original artists, so that's a treat.

SingStar '80s

  • Excerpt: I need to begin this review with a bit of a disclaimer. Normally I am against the practice of writing a review for one version of a game and then using it for the review of another version. If you played and reviewed the PS3 version of a game, it doesn't mean that the review should apply verbatim to the Xbox 360 version.

Singstar 80's

  • Excerpt: The PlayStation 2 isn’t short of a peripheral or two when it comes to novelty games. EyeToys and dancemats aside, there’s one title that uses an even simpler device for interacting with your console – a microphone. All the party hosts with the most will be aware of the phenomenon that is Singstar, the game that lets you sing along to music. Of course, being a videogame this is one up from your average karaoke machine.

  • Summary: SingStar 80's is one of the better games in terms of song selection, and while there's almost nothing new in terms of game mode's it's an essential purchase for fans of the series.
