Editorial Reviews

The Lombardi Trophy returns to Titletown, USA! For the fourth time in their storied history, the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl champions!
 
In this unforgettable four-disc set, relive the Packers' remarkable championship run with the original network broadcasts of their thrilling four-game post-season run. Follow Green Bay as they fight off a late Philadelphia comeback in the Wild Card round, breeze past Atlanta in the Divisional Playoffs, out-slug the arch-rival Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship Game and then charge past the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

It was a season to be savored for all of Packers Nation. Over these four games, Green Bay captured the imagination of an entire nation and their story became etched into the fabric of their incredible NFL legacy. Now, those games are yours to own on DVD with Road to XLV.

All the people buying this are going to be upset.

Does that mean every Super Bowl set from now on will only be released in DVD or are Packers fans just getting a raw deal.

Why would you even consider not releasing a Blu-ray version of a sports spectacle that was meant for HD?

OK, I am a Packer fan, so I sprung the cash for this. Don't follow my lead. I was stunned by the poor video quality of the Super Bowl broadcast. To say it looks like a VHS recording off an analogue source is being only slightly hyperbolic. The sound is OK, so long as you don't have it turned too high. But the picture is fuzzy and with poor detail even in close-ups. Extremely disappointing in comparison to the high quality of the "greatest games" DVDs. Shame on the NFL and Vivendi for releasing this inferior product.

NFL-Green Bay Packers-Road to XLV I read the reviews & didn't heed the warnings of the poor quality. I wanted to have a copy of the final 4 games of the season that I ignored the reviews figuring, how bad can it really be? It is like a poor copy on an old VCR machine. Why? All the people buying this are going to be upset.

This makes no sense at all. Why would you even consider not releasing a Blu-ray version of a sports spectacle that was meant for HD? If Vivendi decided this on their own then the NFL needs to get in touch with them and TELL them "if you release our product it has to be on Blu-ray". Maybe when Vivendi is sitting on a few freight cars full of unsold SD dvd's they will realize their mistake (but probably not if they were dumb enough to do this in the first place). If nothing else, when they start dumping the SD discs on the clearance market for 5 dollars I might finally break down and get one if that's my only option but I'm sure not buying it now.

When I first saw this item available for pre-order, I had to reread the product description a few times just to make sure that it was really promising the entirety of the last four games of the Packers' phenomenal 2010 postseason, including their Super Bowl XLV victory. As a lifetime Packers fan with a DVR full of games I just can't seem to bring myself to delete -- and having watched these four particular games on an almost endless loop over the past year -- I was amazed to see a price tag around the twenty-five dollar mark for this. I jumped at the chance to own it, and I haven't regretted that decision for a second.

Reading the reviews here, one would think that some customers and their families were personally targeted by Vivendi and/or the NFL by their failure to produce this in HD. Last week, I popped in a videotape (!) of a game I had recorded many moons ago on the local CBS affiliate using a RABBIT EAR antenna on the top of our TV at the time. There were points when 'snow' interference blurred a play or two, but I wasn't watching it for the clarity. I was watching it because I loved the MEMORY of that game and what was going on with the Pack (and with me) at the time it happened. Mission accomplished.

As soon as I got these DVDs in my hand, I held my breath and inserted the disc of the Atlanta game, prepared for the worst after sifting through all these complaints. Imagine my relief when I discovered that the game was perfectly fine! I switched back and forth between a couple of plays from that game still on my HD DVR and on the DVD, and there is absolutely a drop in quality (hence 4 stars instead of 5), but it's certainly nothing that will keep me from enjoying these four games for years and decades to come!

This release is a complete failure.It seriously looks as if they recorded it off the t.v. with a VCR and just paused it during the commercials.If anyone did view this monstrosity,did you notice the glitch at 1hr 13min 53sec of the Bears game? The video just freezes for second or two.I returned my first copy in hopes that it was just a fluke,but there it was on the second copy also.I hope Vivendi didn't get paid too much for this. Horrible,just Horrible. Your better off getting the games from the internet or someone who DVR'd it.

I'm writing this review to lend my voice to the many who agree that this should be released on Blu-ray, for all the Packers fans across the country who want to preserve these games in our collections the way they are meant to be seen, in broadcast HD! Hopefully this will send a message to Vivendi that there is a market for this, and they will release these games on Blu-ray as NFL Films has for the last few years. When they do, I'll be the first in line to order my copy!

I agree with other reviewers regarding the lack of HD. The SD quality is average. Some of the close ups are OK but the on the field play visibility is poor quality (blurry). I wanted to wait for a blu-ray version, but when will it come? I purchased it as a Christmas present for my spouse. Really disappointing to watch from an HDTV. Sad that the NFL can't make a quality product for us. It's a slap in the face for Packers fans. They had 9 months to put this together and can't do blu-ray? Shame on the NFL!!!

Once again, the NFL wants your money and is banking on you giving it to them even though they are purposely releasing a sub-standard product. Yes, I know it's Vivendi Entertainment that is releasing this, but one has to believe that they are in lock-step with the NFL in how this release is being done.

The fact that they are taking archived broadcasts, recorded with HD cameras, and releasing it on DVD only is a slap in the face of the fans. If you're a backwater octogenarian who "can't tell the difference with HD", then by all means go ahead and enjoy this DVD set. However, if you're one of the tens of millions of people who watch football every week on an HDTV that you purchased in the last few years, then stand your ground and let Vivendi & the NFL know that just because Green Bay is the NFL's smallest market doesn't mean that the fanbase deserves the smallest effort. Once again, the "Road to XLIV" boxed set for the Saints was released on Blu-Ray...a year ago. This is progress?

No HD - no thanks.
