As another reviewer commented, the only lame aspect is the final leg of the race, where the questions are the same for everyone. I really don't see why there couldn't be 2-4 sets of questions for the final leg... But we worked around this by requiring the other teams to not watch the screen when one team is going into the final leg, and reminding that team not to say anything out loud about the questions or answers.
Great game for a fun evening with friends, especially if they're AR fans too!
Two small issues:
First, I echo the issues with the final leg. There should be more questions.
Second, has anyone else noticed a pattern with the Head Start? I've noticed that if you select a two team game with the red team being the first team chosen, you'll get Dallas as the city every time. This was so much an issue that I actually returned the game because I thought it was defective. Then with my second copy, I figured out that there was a pattern.
I do hope that future versions of the game come out. I'll happily buy again.
I have to say that just when we thing we have seen everything we get a whole new set of questions.
About the ending.
We do the last leg 2 ways: Either we just leave the room and take breaks for each other or we blind our eyes (like when you were 5). Also we have a portable dvd player and when we played on vacation we just turned the portable to the person answering.
As has been frequently cited in the posted reviews, the final leg format diminishes some of the fun at the end of the game (why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars). My suggestion for the creators would be to have the team select their multiple choice answer much like the answer is selected for the "Team Think" where the selection isn't visible on the TV screen. Using the remote control's up, down, left, or right arrows would continue to allow the 4 multiple choice options.
To the engineers, designers and creators of the game: this DVD seemlessly flows between options and keeps track of each team's location within the game amazingly well while injecting the energy, scenes from past shows, and great int'l locations which make AR so entertaining. Great game!
My only gripe is at the end, when your answering questions to race to the finish line, basically once one person gets a question right everyone else can just choose the same answer, like looking over someones shoulder. Maybe they should all get different questions or something, to make it a bit more fair.
It did not disappoint. It was so much fun!
I liked the clips from previous seasons and that fact that Phil, the host of the televised Race, is also the host of the game. Nice touch.
Two minor gripes-the first is the format of the last leg of the race which has been commented upon by other posters. We tried the look away technique which resulted in mayheem as some of the teens playing with us unabashedly peaked/cheated when other teams were answering the multiple choice questions(this actually added to the fun!)
The other gripe is the lack of variety in locations. We played the game three times. Two locales(India and Egypt) were repeated twice over the course of the three outings of the game.
Other than these minor annoyances, the game is time and money well spent.
