There are lots of good questions in the deck - and the fact that they have an Expert deck helps (though the Expert deck is considerably smaller and really not that much harder), but the game board is too short, and there are too few clips on the DVD (as others have mentioned).
I have a small technical gripe about the DVD too - it's really hard to tell which category you've highlighted on the main menu. The Bid Avid round is a bit clunky as well, but it's still workable.
Also, it should be noted (for us Americans) that this game seems to have been created by folks in the UK, as a lot of the questions pertain to things that were more popular across the pond. The real give-away to this was one of the Video Trivia question answers, where it a flashlight was called a torch. (At least I'm pretty sure that's not American lingo...)
All in all, it's not awful, but if I'd been able to play it before buying, I probably would have skipped buying it.
We also joked while playing it that a lot of the songs were UK/Australian. You should view this as a warning. A lot of the questions were pretty easy, but there were some challenging ones.
However, when we got to the final Name That Tune section we would just make the other person name the tune in however many seconds they wanted because we knew that so many of them were so obscure that you could safely win by making the other person guess the question and get it wrong (thus giving you a point).
We were really excited to play the game, and gameplay is okay, but even for connoisseurs the UK stuff makes it a too much, and the DVD menu and playback problems were really just bad enough for me to really not want to play it much more in the future.
The speed of the game is painfully slow. There is no reason that a DVD game can't be fun and well-paced (see: "Scene It!" collection of games). But this isn't. The music selections go from obscure to just plain bad (and not in a good way). They don't make good use of the DVD/video format. We have a whole decade of MTV Videos (when MTV played videos) that they could show and yet you won't find them here.
Save yourself some money and skip this game.
I recently we bought this game while I was on vacation with my boyfriend. We played it a lot in that time. It was awesome. Weird to say that. But it was. If you love the 80's and you know their music it's fun. I do say that it's not for those with only a small knowledge of the music.
There are 5 triva questions to go through and they get harder as you go on. Some are hard. Some aren't as hard. The first 3 are multiple choice so a little easier. The video part is so much fun. It's just fun to play and watch parts of these videos.
One of the best games I have ever played. So much fun.
