stuhayes2010: That game did suck, great graphics for 1986(?), but it was all patterns and not very fun.
brap: I remember that as the game you would just hang out by until someone that had memorized it put their quarter in. Because it had a very expensive learning curve and wasn't very satisfying play-wise. Fun to watch though.
GoodyearPimp: "cartoony graphics" otherwise known as "a cartoon". farking kids these days.
Smeggy Smurf: It's no text based Zork
cjoshuav: "I had never heard of this game before I got it for review, and after playing it I could clearly see why."Well, now that you're done with your review can you get to bed early? You may have to run laps in PE in the morning Junior.
Electrify: I don't have Kinect, but I could actually see it being useful and adding fun into this game.
Mikey1969: Microsoft Studios and Digital Leisure have taken it upon themselves to reintroduce this motion-capture...And that's where I stopped... This wasn't "motion capture", it was a purely animated game that had a bunch of preset screens, nothing "motion capture" about it, and if you're too retarded to understand that simple fact, you probably shouldn't be reviewing video games.As for the game, I agree with the posters upthread. Not a particularly "fun" game, as it was just memorization, but ye Gods! it was beautiful. I believe it's special gimmick was that it was on LaserDisc, the point being that it was a high quality movie that you got to play. I don't know that it would really hold its own nowadays, and not really be worth the money to convert it, but it was definitely groundbreaking.

unyon: He apparently has absolutely no idea that this game is the prototype for every game he now loves.

Fun to watch though.This.They have one at the pinball museum in Vegas, and I played it last time I was there, just because.I died. A lot. And I'm not sure why.
Virtual Pariah: It doesn't, but it's very cheap to convert.Technically, you could build DL for a DVD player. Using the arrow buttons to go to the next track.From what I understand, most of those laserdisc games made their cost back plus some when they hit the arcades. Everything since has been gravy.
