We Sing 80s is a decent effort, but the game falls a bit flat in a few key areas. First, the microphones that come with the game are not that good, and the sound generated through them is rather scratchy (though you can play the game with any other USB microphone you may happen to own). Second, as with many karaoke games, players don't actually have to know the lyrics to score well; they can just mumble on-pitch to score points. The songs are enjoyable and a nice trip down memory lane for those who remember that era of pop music.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
