Oh Crikey, it's the Rozzers!,
This review is from: Top Gear - The Challenges 4 [DVD] (DVD)
Back again with Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow that put their own lives to the limit and beyond in these challenges that have proved quite dangerous, funny, extreme and painful (if you argue your case when riding the Vincent Black Shadow Bike in 1949!). As we all know, the challenges in Top Gear always provide a usual humour and utter words of 'Cock', 'Ambitious but Rubbish' when something usually goes wrong which is predictable.
Continuing the theme from the Third Top Gear Challenges DVD, the Menus are animated in the view of a Speed Dial Gauge with some of the challenges been shown, the scene selections is still perfect and there are extras like the last volume. Sound like Top Gear heaven? It gets better to the list of challenges including the Train Race in 1949, Electric Car (Geoff), Ice Rear-Wheel Racing, Classic Rally's at Auction, Fiesta test in Shopping Mall, Communists Car, Rally Driver Ken Block and James May, Audi Vs. Skiers, Richard in a Car and James in a Boat Race and the McFlaren Vs. Veyron. All of these challenges has got tremendous amount of humour and laughter to fill you up with and so many comments that never fail to raise the smile even more.
However the challenge that is included that will be mentioned often is the Police Car Challenge, this challenge was the most anticipated one and mercifully the BBC listened and now the challenge is included in this DVD with the rest. This will certainly put a smile on many people's faces for now.
For 200 minutes of Top Gear, what more can be included, I don't know maybe a second disc for the second time giving more Extra's? Why yes they did, on a second disc you get the Jenson Button & AC/DC's Brian Johnson Extended Interviews, Ride with The Stig and Training Run with Speed Flyers in Multi-Angle, Unseen Top Gear Awards, Unseen Ken Block Slow Mo Footage, Exclusive Unseen Footage and Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 200mph run in Abu Dubai and More! The DVD is a structured Top Gear DVD and has no problem with navigation and yes it does include subtitles for English Hard of Hearing and a aspect ratio of 16:9.
One Difference be warned is that the Challenges are NOT all on one disc, due to the runtime of the challenges included in this volume, it is impossible to fill all one disc with the challenges. Overall, this is worth buying as it still is the same, the only downside some people can complain is that some of the Music has been changed on some of the challenges and that some cuts have been made but not sufficient enough to be noticed. One downside is that some other challenges like '17-Year Olds Car', 'Caravan Holiday' and 'Ploughing, Cropping Tractor' are not included. But mainly, it's a brilliant release and like any other Top Gear fan, this should be part of your own collection.

i'd also love to see the van challenge once again, where Hammond crashed his.
