A fun karaoke session, let down by horrible content management
on 15 July 2010
I bought this disc, with Party Classics, to complete my Lips collection. I Love The 80s has a good selection of songs, some of them my favourites, but none of them you could call obscure. The user interface is good, and the addition of your avatar as a guide to mic actions is an improvement over the First disc.
But I agree entirely with the previous reviewer who said that swapping discs is a pain. It really is, and unfortunately there is no way around it - not even installing the games to hard drive will work. Also, unlike Number One Hits but like Party Classics, this disc doesn't present you with the songs from the first disc by default - you have to change your library view settings to show them.
The Lips series is great fun if you like to sing, and I Love The 80s is well worth it to add more stuff to the party. Just be prepared to feed your console discs to get the full benefit of it... unless Microsoft release a patch to fix this.
Edit 15/07/10 1933: First draft written under impression that Disc One songs weren't directly accessible from library. They're there, just not shown by default.
