DVD-ROM Review:
When the InterActual Player 2 software loads up, you will see the typical skimping of work, as the DVD-ROM main menu is exchanged with the DVD-Video menu. All that is available for us ROM users is on the bottom of the screen in the WB toolbar. Besides the usual, boring Web links, there is one extra feature that is worth noting. This feature, titled Are You In Or Out, is a fun series of games designed around different scenes from the movie. To play the games, you must do a series of tasks: anything from winning five grand in blackjack to flipping on metal cabinets to set explosives. Each of the six stages are fun in their own right, but do get old fairly quickly. Some of the tasks actually get pretty demanding, like the third, where you have to randomly select numbers to form a door code. Be careful though, you only get eight trys for 10000 different combinations. I was extremely disappointed to not find more features available for us DVD-ROM users, but was happy with what we received. The games were entertaining, and held my attention until I completed them all, but is not enough to hold Ocean's Eleven with the other powerhouse DVD-ROM titles. (Danny Richelieu)
