The same annoyances are present with this as with the aforementioned Lair. You have a couple of seconds to press a directional button on the remote control. Thereís no way of knowing which button to press, and even with the game guide on, itís difficult to know when to press the button. This game actually moves faster than Lair, so when you hit the wrong button, you start over from your point and immediately get started again.
You again canít save, but even if you could, you probably wouldnít. Todayís gamers really need control and some type of logic in their games in order to keep their attention. This doesnít really have either. I love the fact that studios are finding new ways to utilize Blu-ray technology, but they could have done more with this. Thereís nothing wrong with updating the game play. Heck, I would have been happy if when I press ďupĒ, the character moved up. With a little more animation and time, they probably could have made that happen.
There is an option to watch the cartoon all the way through without playing the game. This is kind of nice and at least gives you a chance to see the cartoon. The cartoon itself is kind of neat in a nostalgic kind of way. I thought the animation was dated, but it looked beautiful on Blu-ray.
Interviews with the creators (5:54): The same three guys do these interviews that did the commentary. Coincidentally, they did this almost at the same time they did Dragonís Lair, which explains a lot. Most of the discussion is basic stuff about the voices, music and the rumored sequel.
