Format: DVD
OK, let's start by mentioning that there are TWO versions of this DVD. There is a DVD-ROM version which requires Windows 95/98 to run, and there is THIS version (called DVD-VIDEO) which does NOT require a computer to run. Both versions are manufactured by Digital Leisure.
Here is the scoop on both versions...
DVD-ROM version:
-Requires Windows 95/98 to run. (I don't know if it will work with Windows 2000 or Windows Me)
-Has smoother game play. From what I have heard from other people, the game play on this version is practically flawless.
-I don't think that this version has the "watch" feature, which lets you view the entire animation without actually playing the game.

DVD-VIDEO Version:
-Does NOT require a computer to run.
-When I use this on my Sony DVD player that is hooked to my TV, the game play is painful. There are 2-3 second gaps between moves that makes the game almost unbearable. However, when I play this on my computer's DVD drive, the game play is quite good. There are still gaps between moves, but only about 1/4 of a second or so.
-Has a "watch" feature that lets you view the entire animation without playing it. This is very cool!
-Works on MOST DVD players, except some Toshiba models.

WHY I BOUGHT THIS VERSION:
Even though the game play is better on the DVD-ROM version, I decided to buy the DVD-VIDEO version for a couple of reasons...
-The "watch" feature was important to me. I wanted the ability to just sit back and take in the whole beautiful animation without having to do shoot, left, left, shoot, etc.
-I wanted this purchase to last.

Back in the 80's Space Ace was a game for people to get in line because it was a lot of fun. Space Ace has been in every format, and now after almost 20 years from its release we can enjoy it in our house with our DVD's. There is a little pause between every move to the game but that will vary from player to player. There is also a "watch" option that lets you relax and watch the hole game without playing it. A great Classic. Don Bluth made a great game.

If you plunked a lot of quarters into the old Dragon's Lair or Space Ace arcade games then give this game a shot. The graphics and move sequences of Space Ace DVD-ROM emulate the arcade game almost perfectly. The only shortcomings of this game are that the "good move", "bad move" sounds are missing. Also, the timing of some of the moves is slightly off in some areas, which means that you have to make your move a split second before the "danger" appears.
Other than that, it's like having a "Space Ace" arcade game on your computer!
If you have never heard of or played "Space Ace" however, then I don't really recommend it. By today's standards, it is not that great of a game. I bought it largely as a nostalgia item.

To say that I am a Space Ace fan is an understatement. Back in the 80s, I don't know how many quarters I spent trying to discover the correct routes for every sequence (the only games I spent more money on was probably the first few versions of Street Fighter II). I became someone who can consistently complete the game on one quarter (on Cadet level anyway). Everytime I played at the local arcade, I always drew a crowd watching as I took command of Ace to rescue the fair Kimberly. Space Ace certainly has a special place in my heart.

So believe me when I say I tried many of the home conversions that became commercially available over the years, and was left sorely disappointed every time. Of the ones I remember, I tried Sega CD, Panasonic 3DO, PC, and the Philips CDI. Graphic quality of these were usually horrendous. The timing of the moves were completely different from the arcade, and some were just straight up wrong. Some versions did not even include every sequence. The best conversion thus far was probably the CDI version (which I tried at a store demo), but even that was not perfect, and I'm not about to buy a machine costing $300+ at the time just for Space Ace.

When I found out about Space Ace HD on amazon, I had to try it. I've been jaded by all the conversions thus far so I didn't entirely have high hopes, but the very affordable price, the promise of HD, and the generally positive reviews here made it too enticing.

I am happy to report that this is the Space Ace that we have been waiting for! Graphic quality is excellent! Keep in mind that this was done in the 80s so there's only so much they can do, but on my 1080p 46-inch set, the video quality is really sharp.

Space Ace [Blu-ray]

Incredible conversion and bug free despite some reviews. check sound output is linear on your PS3 and enjoy the 5.1 surround mix on your biggest 1080p screen.

Cannot wait for DL2 to go on blu-ray as Dig Leisure have really gone the extra mile in perfecting this product. Obviously there is no future plan to convert DL3 as that product was a severe embarrasment of the past and was nothing more than a pathetic recording of somebody playing DL3D.

But as for DL1 DL2 and space ace you would have to be brain dead not to snatch these titles up while they last. Simply the most superb interactive movie computer games ever created and have been for over 25 years for those gamers too young to recall their massive impact. My package from Amazon arrived here in Australia just 4 days after paying for them which completely stunned me.
