Excerpt: We Sing has finally come back to Family Friendly Gaming Nation. So the millions upon millions of readers can enjoy a review. If you smell what I am cooking. Impressive introductions aside, it is time to review We Sing 80s on the Wii. The package Family Friendly Gaming was provided contains two microphones.
Excerpt: Sometimes I like to take time away from the killing machine of online play and relax with something a little less hostile facing me. If my kids are around I also like to refrain from playing the more mature games in favour of the Wii or something a little light hearted. The We Sing range of games from Nordic Games suit the Wii and what it entails perfectly.
Summary: Parents need to know that We Sing 80s is a karaoke game for up to four players. The game features 30 songs that were popular in the 1980s. There are several ways to play, either in Solo mode or Party mode. The Solo mode contains a Lessons section that is more about pitch than anything else, whereas the Party mode contains the standard variety of games, such as Pass the Mic and Versus, and a few interesting modes like Blind (wherein the lyrics are not displayed and the...
Summary: We Sing 80s does everything right in terms of gameplay. Everything works as it should, there are plenty of options, and there are even a bunch of trophies to collect. Check out the tracklist. If these looks like songs you want to sing, you’re good to go. If you don’t want to sing these songs, it doesn’t matter how well the game was made.
We Sing 80s Review | Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?
10 October 2012
Conclusion: The Short Version: We Sing 80s gets dragged down by an unambitious setlist that neither capitalises on the gleeful cheesy excess of its source material, nor provides a consistently enjoyable selection of singalong hits. Diehard fans of eighties music might well glean some cathartic enjoyment from it, but I fear that even they will notice the gaping holes in the lineup.
Pros: Solid tone recognition, full music videos to watch while you sing, Slick interface honed through years of iteration, A few fun and cheesy classics to belt out
Cons: Inconsistent setlist with lots of filler and downtime, 30 songs compared to 40 in previous releases, So many painful omissions
Summary: We Sing 80s is a decent continuation of the series, and is likely to cause nostalgia overload for gamers of a certain age. Its biggest strengths are multiplayer fun and an excellent tracklist that covers some of the most memorable songs of the period. It's weakest played solo, where it's really just a karaoke machine that's supported by a rather unsupportive Lessons mode, while the video and sound quality is rather typical of a Wii singing game — passable but...
Summary: Die „We Sing“-Reihe ist mittlerweile ein fester Bestandteil der Spiellandschaft der Wii geworden. Während die erste Episode nur bedingt überzeugen konnte, war ihr Nachfolger so erfolgreich, dass direkt eine handvoll Ableger zu unterschiedlichen Musikrichtungen veröffentlicht wurden. Nach Rock, Pop, Deutsche Hits und UK Hits kommt mit „We Sing: 80s“ nun ein neuer und vielleicht sogar letzter Ableger für die Wii in den Handel.
Summary: We Sing 80s est un jeu de karaoké finalement assez classique mais plutôt efficace. Il propose un répertoire de titres connus par un large public, des classiques des années 1980. Dommage cependant qu'il ne soit pas possible de télécharger des chansons supplémentaires sur le WiiWare.
