My bet is that they didn't actually play the game with a group of people.

Actually, I'm pretty sure they did. (I wish I could find the review, I'd post the link. Ah. here it is.)

Clemon79 didn't even buy the game.
What the hell is your point? Damn right I didn't buy it. Mainly because I have yet to see a DVD game that didn't pretty much blow anyhow, but more because of the really crappy reports.

I'm not saying it will change your life, but it is a lot of fun to play.
Good on ya. Enjoy it. It still looks awful.

(And take into account that this is coming from someone who thinks Pyramid is the greatest game ever, period, paragraph, end of story.)

People have their reasons for buying and vice versa.  My reason for not buying...that commercial creeped me the *BLEEP* out.  I mean did Patrick Wayne direct that commercial?

And who can blame him?  I didn't buy it either--the packaging reeked of "let's make a quick buck".

Actually if you read the link you posted, he never did play it with a group of people.

Oh, you're right. I thought he had.

It still looks awful, and the pauses that are part-and-parcel with DVD games would still ruin the experience completely. I'll stick with the box game, for now.

I finally did play it with a group.....not so great reception. They would have rather played the board game or had me program presentation software. The down times are just awkward, It's just slow gameplay (esp. the poor excuse for a Winner's Circle) and it just wasn't Pyramid to any of us. Guess we're partial to the classic style. Heck, we've even played Sierra's CD ROM with the PC hooked up to the TV, and that went great. Well, at least some people are enjoying it I guess....I just think they went the wrong route with this....it had so much potential.

Yeah, I think most here forgot/didn't know that title had a Party Mode. Tried it once eons ago and remember it being decent.
