If you've played or know of the gameplay in other SingStar titles, nothings changed. The only reason I give this 4 stars overall (as I would the other S.S. titles) is that rather than singing well, Singstar wants you to mimic the artists performance. Don't get me wrong - it's a fun challenge - but you could grunt instead of knowing the lyrics and as long as your timing and notes are right, the game doesn't seem to care. Don't forget you need the special Singstar microphones to play the title so if you don't already have them, you'll need to buy them.
The playlist is great. I expected the same generic songs you'd find on your typical 80's compilation cd, but they throw in a few unique titles such as Kim Wilde's 'Kids in America' Nena's '99 Red Balloons' and Erasure's 'a Little Respect'. Video's I hadn't seen SINCE the 80's. All in all, if you like 80's music and music videos and like to sing, SingStar 80's will give you hours of fun and nostalgia. Like, totally...
The GOOD: More bonus mixes! Real songs and videos from original artists. Can use EyeToy USB camera. Saves songs for replay.
The BAD: Rather random selection of 80s tunes. Must use GENUINE SingStar USB adapter (but you can plug in other mics into the adapter).
Slow-loading--it even autosaves when you quit.
Can't hear tunes without the original artist singing with you.
This title does not work on updated PS3 systems, even though other titles may still be on the compatibility list (they don't work either). Sony flagged them all, not for technical issues, but because of the upcoming PS3 version which will have an a la carte, iTunes-style download system.
One of the things I'd say about Singstar 80's is that it helps to 'even out' the playing field between the generations.
The only drawback to this game is that younger generations with little to no experience to this music probably won't enjoy it as much. ((Well that and Twisted Sister's video which I was so glad to have blocked out of my memory up until the day the game arrived.))
