    4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music, format could have been better October 25, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    The music is fantastic, and for a first effort, this is a great package. A couple nitpicks...
    Interviews between songs should have been dropped, or there should have been the option to watch the entire concert from start to finish without interruptions. Yea, even a minute or so of the intermission.
    The Advent Rising transfer is horrible. No other game looks that bad, and the camera recording the screen looks fine, but direct transfer footage is just awful.
    Lastly, it's in 1080i, not p. Not a huge deal, but something to note.

    All that said, I'd still pick up the package, particularly for the price it's being offered at. The music is wonderfully performed, and if you're a fan of video games (which, if you're looking at this, you probably are), it's worth a purchase.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointed March 27, 2011
    By Thomas
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I bought this as a birthday present for my brother. I had seen it on PBS but he missed it. We both love the music from Final Fantasy and on PBS there were quite a few Final Fantasy songs performed. On the DVD there are no Final Fantasy songs performed at all. The only Squaresoft song performed was the Chrono Cross theme (which is awesome)

    The music that is here is excellent and well worth the purchase. As for the missing Final Fantasy songs I blame Squaresoft because it turns out that they weren't allowed to include such music on this DVD. However there was a sticker on the front of the DVD (on the outside of the cellophane) which claimed that there was music from Final Fantasy on it. Obviously they had planned on including such music and probably had to pull it some time in the production process. The sticker must have been an oversight.

    If you aren't specifically looking for Final Fantasy music then go ahead and purchase this, it's great music and a lot of fun.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert but an average BD October 19, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    A little bit about the concert first; I have never been to a VG LIVE concert but I have been to a Final Fantasy "Dear Friends" and the recent "Distant Worlds" concert. So picking this one up I knew what to expect. Great music but familiar in a different light with all the cool (but cheesy) theatrics. In all honesty, hearing your favorite gaming tunes in a live symphony and choir is truly an unforgettable if not inspiring experience. Really, words cannot describe how these or in this case VG LIVE concerts are; IT IS SOMETHING TO BE EXPERIENCED FIRST HAND.

    However if you were unable to make the concerts, Shout Factory was kind enough to grace us with this BD/DVD combo for your home viewing experience.

    PRESENTATION:
    I am one for the full home theater immersion of a live concert with no interruptions (except to what is actually happening at the concert) but I am not too fond with the side commentary before each presentation. They should of had an option to watch the concert without commentary. Not experience ruining for most but that is just me, it feels a bit disjointed.

    VIDEO:
    Despite what the box labels (1080p) this concert is encoded in 1080i. Surprisingly though, this is a very clean transfer that would rank next to other great Live Concerts such as Rush, NIN, Incubus, Within Temptation, etc. Though sometimes it does look a bit soft in some shots, that is to be expected in a low lighted environment. But definitely for the most part it is an eye pleasing and crisp picture.

    AUDIO: DTS-MA
    If you are expecting an aural experience as with most great live concert BDs, VG LIVE somewhat fails in this department. For the most part it trumps the clarity and projection found in standard DTS counterpart.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed at the lack of Final Fantasy finale October 26, 2011
    By J. Wu
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    The disc is good overall except Square Enix did not let them put Final Fantasy music at the end (which is actually advertised on the disc label sticker) which really ruined the climax of the concert. I see no hurt if they allow it as this product is not really competing with Square's concerts. People love it would like to get all related items as they are totally different good experiences.

    5.0 out of 5 stars VGL for the masses October 22, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray
    This dvd is the best way for those who aren't able to see the concert live the opportunity to see this event, and the best thing is, it's like having the best seats in the house. The quality of the video is excellent, thanks to the blu-ray capabilities, and as if the music wasn't excellent in the first place, the sound is crisp as well.
    The nice thing about the show is that it casts a broad net for their audience. You don't even have to play video games or know video games to appreciate and love the show. For game veterans it's a celebration of the games they love. For the casual or non-players, it's a fun experience to learn and in a way experience the wealth of music, visuals and pop culture that these games bring. Either way, the energy from the show is like nothing else. Video Games Live has been touring the world since 2005 and this is their first dvd release. It's about time.
    If you enjoy this dvd, I would also look into their cd compilations as well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An Engaging Unforgettable Experience September 27, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    So while I understand that this product hasn't been released yet...I'm writing this review based on the fact that I was in the audience of the show they filmed for the DVD/BRD in New Orleans.

    I can only hope that not much was edited out of the final product. This show was so engaging that it was sick! While I used to work in the performance industry, the person I brought with me to the VGL show had never seen or heard a live orchestra before. He was blown away by not only the audible aspects but the visuals as well. The local Philharmonic and Choir were absolutely flawless and actually entertaining to watch. ..especially in the final piece of the show then a rather senior cellist stands up, lets his hair down, and begins to head bang alongside Tommy (the creator of VGL) while still playing perfectly.

    The energy of the performance enchanted people of all ages and backgrounds in the audience. Diehard gamers like myself salivated over hearing familiar musical scores brought to life in front of us, while non-gamer parents stared listlessly at the operatic performances of some of the vocalists is such pieces as Advent Rising and the Intro to Civilization.

    Overall, purchasing this DVD/BRD is wise. Not only is it a great addition to any media library, it also shows your support for video games as "Art." I've got mine on pre-order and I can't wait to relive the experience again. Thanks Tommy, Jack, and everyone else...come back to New Orleans soon!!!
