Eighty desire to make a fool of myself

Singstar '80s does not hide that it is a mere data disk, as it does not present any structural novelties of particular importance: as in previous editions, therefore, the SCEE title offers players armed with a microphone the opportunity to sing on the notes of as many as 30 original pieces, appropriately provided with videos where available. Winning team does not change, and so Singstar '80s continues to evaluate the user's singing performance based only on intonation, without dwelling on octaves or on the correct pronunciation of the words of the text (to all intents and purposes it is possible to easily sing a whole song using only one verse). Certainly a point in favor of the enjoyment of the SCEE title, which as always turns out to be immediately accessible to all, this time perhaps even to a greater extent thanks to a musical selection that does not require golden throats to be addressed; an aspect that was one of the main reasons for criticism of the other compilations, especially the Singstar Party. Always remaining on the subject of tracklist, it must be said that the choices made by SCEE appear sufficiently appropriate, drawing cheekily pop and commercial melodies but also songs of undoubted caliber: in short, while not representing a perfect cross-section of the music of that decade, Singstar '80s does its job quite well in this regard. Anyone who has lived or in any case knows the music scene of the time will not find it difficult to find bread for their teeth, venturing together with other players in the different multiplayer modes offered by the SCEE product (as the previous ones, in fact, even Singstar '80s has not substantially reason to exist outside this perspective). Also in this case, little or nothing changes from the usual: the Battle option, in which two users compete at the same time on the same song, continues to be the most successful, while the Duet mode appears unconvincing, if only for the inaction of songs actually sung in two voices. The picture is completed by the sections First to the Post (the first to reach a certain score wins), Keep It Up (in which it is necessary to keep the performance level above a certain limit) and Pass The Mic (where a maximum of eight players must sing a piece of song each), without forgetting the inclusion of some medleys useful to spice up the situation a bit. The Eye Toy then continues to be supported to shoot some excerpts of its interpretation on video, while the inclusion of a bizarre version of Pong that can only be controlled by the height of the voice definitely leaves the time it finds. Ultimately, therefore, Singstar '80s certainly does not distort the nature of the series, but thanks also to due filings in the selection of the tracklist it proves to be one of the most suitable party games on the square, at least for the over 20s.



Comment

Difficult to judge Singstar 80's without bringing up the personal opinions of each one of both karaoke and a tracklist obviously confined to the synthesizer decade. And yes, because the last born in the SCEE house differs from the previous ones substantially only in the musical offer, fortunately - this must be emphasized - made up of pieces that do not require professional singing skills, as has too often happened in past editions. Consider therefore the persistent quality of Singstar 80's as a party game and the good variety of the tracklist, the title SCEE remains an excellent choice for more mature users or for the nostalgic of the 80's looking for a genuine source of hilarity for their own. evenings.

    Pro:
  • Great as a party game
  • Satisfactory tracklist
  • Good number of modes
    Against:
  • Reserved for fans of the 80s
  • Little more than a data-disk

Now in its fourth edition between highs and lows, Singstar has always tried to present a musical offer as much as possible oscillating between classic and pop pieces, between old and new, between more elaborate songs and very naughty hit-singles, and not always with results. happy: an excessive dispersion of styles and genres, combined with a not exactly optimal choice of tracks, which ended up more disappointing than satisfying everyone, forcing most of the users to limit their singing performances to a rather small percentage of songs compared to the total. Perhaps for this very reason, SCEE has decided to dedicate this last Singstar exclusively to the roaring 80s.
