I was surprised to find so many other reviewers rating this item highly. When I read their reviews, it became clear that they were rating it in comparison with a previous DVD version of the game, and considered this to be a vast improvement.
I didn't see the previous version, and can only assume that it must have been TRULY dire.
I suppose anyone who buys this will already know all about Deal or No Deal, but as an experiment, I first tried this disk on a few people who had never watched the program.
There are no written instructions with the game. I watched as this roomful of quite intelligent people watched the on-screen 'tutorials' several times. They learned the 'mechanics' of using the DVD, but were left totally clueless about the overall object of the game.
Then they played two games. At the end of this process, they were still unclear what had happened, whether they had won or lost, and what the overall object had been!!!
I guess that doesn't say much for the game instructions, but I then tried it on a couple of fanatical DOND fans.
As you might expect, they enjoyed it more than the previous crowd (because they already knew how to play the game), but they still found it overly slow and a bit clunky. Having played it once or twice, they showed no interest in ever playing it again (and proved it, by politely declining the disk when I offered it to them as a gift.)
Having watched others play the game, and having had a go myself, I have to say it leaves me unimpressed.
