I've wanted to buy this set for quite a while but was a little reluctant after reading other reviews on it. However, a few days ago I picked it up for 20 bucks in Zellers and decided to see how it really was.
Yes, the video isn't HD quality, and yes, the audio fades a few times, but, c'mon guys, these games are thirty years old. Just remember, HD didn't exist in 1976 and neither did DVDs. I can't imagine anyone back then thinking that thirty years later, someone would want to have copies of these games. And to be honest, only the video quality in the U.S. game is below average. Everything else looks pretty good.
The chance to see Phil Esposito, Bobby Clarke, Bobby Hull, Denis Potvin, Bobby Orr, et al. competing on the same team is amazing. As for which games are or aren't included, yes it was disappointing not to see Canada vs Finland but I'm assuming the video wasn't very good or didn't exist anymore.
And as a Canadian, do I want to see Finland play Sweden, or the Czechs play the States? Not really.
Anyway, I have the 1972 Summit Series, now I finally have the Canada Cup 76. I can't wait until the 1984, 1987 and 1991 Canada Cups come out. And I would even consider the 1981 tournament as well.
If you love watching Canada in international play, buy this set. It's worth it.
