Product Description

The best interactive DVD Game from the best talent show The X Factor! This is a music and X Factor trivia game to test all ages and decide: have you got what it takes? This DVD is packed with auditions, the judges' most memorable moments, unseen footage and is great for music and X Factor fans alike. It includes clips from all 4 series. Fearne Cotton (The Xtra Factor host) brings the game alive and makes you feel like part of the show every time you play! The interactive quiz tests your skill as a judge in the Auditions and then takes you through to Bootcamp, the Judges' Homes, the Live Shows and, if you're good enough, The Grand Final. The aim of the game is to score points in Rounds 1-3 and then reach The Grand Final in Round 4. Answer questions correctly and you stand a chance of winning a fantastic prize including backstage passes to The X Factor Live tour 2008!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fun for its short lifespan 3 Dec 2007
By Mart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Although obviously aimed at X Factor fans this game does have enough general music questions to keep the occasional viewer entertained.

It's entirely endorsed by the producers of the program, so we have the real X Factor music, the four current judges Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne, Danni Minogue and Simon Cowell, and the cheekily happy Fearne Cotton keeps the whole thing moving at a good pace. She reads out all the questions throughout the game and changes her outfit for each new round.

The game can be played by up to 4 players (I'm not sure why one person would play on their own?) and is quite simple, but that's not to criticise, for its appeal is in its simplicity. To win the game you have to answer questions correctly (using your DVD remote), getting a few bonus points along the way, and hopefully ending up in the Grand Final. The first one to get there and answer the Grand Final question correctly wins. It's as simple as that. A brief explanation of the 4 rounds is as follows:

Round 1. THE AUDITIONS

Fearne shows us a 10 second clip, taken from any of the previous X Factor Series, and asks us to guess whether the performer made it to Boot Camp. Guess correctly and you get a point, get it wrong and Fearne tells you off. Some of the clips are hilariously bad.

Round 2. BOOTCAMP

Once at Bootcamp you are given a category (Groups, 25+, etc) and again have to answer questions, but this time they are multi choice and are based on general music knowledge as well as X Factor based.

Round 3. JUDGES HOMES

Here you retain your allocated category and answer multi choice questions against the clock, having 5 seconds to make your guess. This is a good round for speeding up the game.

Round 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant fun, for anyone 26 Dec 2007
By Bj Lucas VINE VOICE
I received this as a Christmas gift. To get past the audition stage, you have to guess correctly whether an auditionee got through or not. from then on answering questions to make it from boot camp, through to the live shows and finally the grand final. wicked fun, My brother played along with me and he's not even really a classic x factor fan and enjoyed himself. you'll love it whether you're into X factor, or music in general.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've got to be honest here: if it hadn't been for the fact I got this as a gift recently I would have been the wrong person to review this game properly. I am a music buff and so a quiz like this is a tad more easier than the music questions at my local pub quiz night. However, this isn't all that bad for what it is.

Luckily, the wife and I are fans of the show (though not necessarily the records released in its wake) and the odd clip or two punctuating the questions stirred a few memories of past shows and familiar X factor faces. It was a bit of a glide through to the final rounds for me but I'd imagine some of the question will tax many out there with even the slightest knowledge of music trivia. However, to my surprise, the final question to win the X Factor was a real toughie and I got lucky...on my 2nd attempt! Oops.

Another worthwhile feature is the chance - in Round 1 - to be one of the 4 judges and decide if a contestant makes it through. In some cases it's very easy to guess correctly that the caterwauler in front of you didn't go anywhere near bootcamp, but with others it's far less obvious. In fact, I incorrectly guessed the future status of quite a few of the contestants in the first round.

Unfortunately, although all of this was fun the game has two big faults which marred the overall experience for me. Firstly, it's presented by Ferne Cotton. Yikes! Her schoolgirl over-excitedness about the most meagre of details was really irritating after a while (thank goodness we don't watch the Xtra Factor these days!). In the 2nd game that I played I just flicked on as soon as she appeared (cruel, I know) which meant the game went very quickly!! Now why couldn't they afford the eminently likeable Dermot O'Leary?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun for the family 27 Dec 2007
By P. Barclay VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.
