  • Just like a kid again
    It's move for move the same as it was in the arcade. So many other versions have come and gone over the years and something was missing. This is a must have for any Dragon's Lair fan....more info
  • Dragon's Lair 20th, Worth the money!!!
    Dragon's Lair 20th Anniversary is true to the arcade version as is Space Ace and Dragon's Lair II. Just drop the disc in and chose between the three games on the disc & play. No install is needed. You can also mirror it to your hard drive and play it from that as well and If you do the scenes will change over quicker, not that there is any real delay running from the disc. I think this is a great game and I am looking into buying the rest of sequels of the game....more info
  • Exactly like I remember
    I wasted many quarters in the arcade in the 80's playing these games, and they are, for the most part, as I remember them. Game play is exactly the same, but the video is MPEG, so the quality is not the greatest, but is acceptable. The resolution on DL and SA is better then DL-II for some reason - I had to play DL-II in a window rather than full screen so it didn't look terrible (literally), but DL and SA looked pretty good full-screen on a 20" LCD monitor....more info
  • Classic arcade LD games on PC!
    I played all three of these games when they were released to the arcades. They were revolutionary then and just as much fun now as they were then. Game play is identical to the original games as the graphics look great on my 20 inch LCD. I once owned a Dragons Lair / Space Ace conversion arcade console. It had the laser disc for each game and a ROM that you had to change out to convert over. I'll bet its worth more now than I sold it for but buying these for the PC satisfies the nostalgic craving without taking up a lot of space! Highly recommended!...more info
  • Just like the arcade
    DL was the first thing I've ever order from Amazon and it made it to my door step in less then 72 hours with standard shipping. The merchant delivered exactly what they say they would, new in the box. Thanks you Amazon...more info
  • A lot cheaper to play this way!
    The original arcade version of Dragon's Lair came out in 1983 when I was 10. I didn't know what I was doing when I played it back then and as a result, the game would end really fast. I was upset because I could have played two other video games at the time instead of blowing 50 cents on Dragon's Lair and getting nowhere! When Space Ace came out in 1984, I played it safe and watched other people play the game instead. The only problem was not too many people would play Space Ace because they, by then had mastered Dragon's Lair and didn't want to start over on another hard laserdisc game.

    Now that I am older and wiser to how these games are supposed to be played, these are 3 great games to play. Plus the fact that they are the same versions as the ones you may have played in the arcades doesn't hurt either. My only gripe with the games is the pause in between the moves that you make. I first tried the Dragon's Lair DVD on my Playstation 2 and the pause was about a second and a half tops which got really annoying. Then I tried it on my Apple iMac with a 2g hard drive and the pause was practically non-existent! I managed to finish Dragon's Lair and Space Ace each in two seperate long weekends. It will, however take a lot longer for me to finish Dragon's Lair 2: Timewarp. That game is really hard and fast! If you're a fan of laserdisc games, or if you grew up back in the 80's like me, you might want to buy this game package. It will bring back a lot of memories. And you won't lose all of your money like in the past!...more info
  • Nostalgia-filled fun!
    I have always been a fan of these games since they first came out when I went to the arcade & hugged my dollar tight while watching other kids play for hours so I could get my money's worth! Just as much fun as I remember. Not the most interactive game in the world but more than enough fun to pass the time in between working from home & marathon sessions of MMORPGs! Not as much fun once you've mastered them but still kinda cool to show off to the kids/neices/nephews/what-have-you when they come over. Not getting nearly as much burn as it did when I first got it but still jump on it every now & then ......more info
  • Better than expected play.
    What a flood of memories this game brought back when playing on the PC. The game makers set out to duplicate the arcade version of the game for home users and that is exactly what was accomplished. The majority of the game play was exactly re-created for the new generation of gamers seeking a little bit of yesteryear and the way in which video games evolved. Fortunately, with the additional versions being offered with this anniversary set, the game was well worth the purchase price. Considering I didn't have the funds to try and complete Dragon's Lair 2 and Space Ace in their original incarnation. I was excited to try and learn how one might win out against these versions in the home format. This one is definitely one for the avid old school games....more info
  • Mediocre video quality, but the game play is crisp and tight.
    I was disappointed with the video quality - it looks like a second generation video copy. So I went and blew almost $70 on the DVD-ROM HD version of just Dragon's Lair. The HD version's quality was great but the game play was laggy and scenes would start half-way into the action on occasion. Before you say I need a better computer do note that this was on a Core 2 Duo e6600 with a Geforce 7600GT video card. The CD-ROM version's gameplay is much snappier, plus you get Dragon' Lair II, Space Ace, and a lot of "Making Of" type material on the extras disc. In the end, I would say get both of them. ^_^ ...more info
  • Don Bluth's masterpieces
    I find it amazing how well I remember the sounds, button time presses, and overall presentation of Dragon's Lair from when I was young. Running through it once more with this packaged set was nostalgic and fun. I still think this is one of the most exciting games I ever played. Of course, after purchasing this package I was able to try my hand at two of the other great games in the series Space Ace and Dragon's Lair II. These two are equally creative and fun (if not slightly more difficult) and are worth one's time and money especially if you're a Don Bluth fan....more info
