Just like the show, this DVD has superb graphics, launching into the game with a cosmic zoom from out of space. Fern Cotton guides us through the game, as she does the live show, with great verve and energy.
The game is very easy to get into: the rules are simple, the context familiar and the questions are straightforward. The quality of the production is evident throughout with clear video and audio. Fern's dialogue works well with the game play and doesn't seem overly stereotyped, although there is obviously some repetition.
The show features questions about the previous 2 series but does not have any questions about the latest series which was in production at the time the DVD was made. Hopefully later versions of this game will be updated to include clips of Rhyddian, Leon and the others.
We enjoyed playing this game for an hour: it made a very pleasant alternative to watching television. I think we will enjoy playing it again a few more times as a family in the coming months.
This game lacks any addictive need to repetitively play the game and reach higher level, which is a major plus point.
All in all, a good gift for the X factor afficionado which will give a few hours of fun at a reasonable price.
