4.0 out of 5 stars Works with Nvidia 3d Vision Discover, February 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this triple pack in order to try out Nvidia's low cost 3d vision discover. Certainly took some amount of time to get used to the effect. Aside from the somewhat dorkiness of the glasses (look more like 1970's glass than modern shades), they work very well. I've been playing Resident Evil (4 & 5), Left 4 Dead (1 & 2), and few other games in 3d vision and it's an amazing and immersive effect.

There are some downsides to the effect:
1. Desaturation: Most colors are still noticeable, but there is clearly alot of lost of color, due to the filters.
2. Ghosting: Because you can always still see some degree of the other eye's color in each eye, ghosting is very noticeable this way.

These are both inherent to the effect, and not the glasses however. I can't compare them to other red/cyan glasses, since the last pair I used was in 1998 with red/blue (which really messed with the visible color spectrum). The work great once you get used to them though.

I would not recommend these for long periods of time however. After about 2 hours, my brain is usually in melt down. Great glasses themselves though.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1/2 Dbz, 1/2 Competitive fighter, February 24, 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Infinite World is an excellent addition to the DBZ series of games. Budokai 3 was an excellent game that came about as close to the series as any fighting game could. Then Tenkaichi came out and they somewhat dropped the fighting aspect and moved onto the series simulation aspects. Don't get me wrong, those games are excellent too, but it can be a little difficult to have good matches in those with other people. Infinite World, on the other hand, is somewhat of a return to form.

First off, Infinite World was made by Dimps and feels alot like Budokai 3. That said, it's very different too. It seems that they recognized that Tenkaichi was the series simulator, so they moved on to making a better fighting game. That said, they did so using mechanics from the series as well! Essentially, this is Budokai 3, with strategic uses of Ki, Fatigue, Juggles, Teleport Counters, and Combo Cancels. If you can't master every single one of those aspects, the AI will tear you apart on any difficulty.

All in all, this is one of my favorite DBZ games. It's very difficult like many games of olden days, but it does so fairly. If you master the game, the difficulty won't be an issue. I suggest you pick up this and Tenkaichi 2 both. If you can't stand hard games, then get Budokai 3 instead. These three games represent the pinnacle of DBZ.
