5.0 out of 5 stars VGL!! Dec 10 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Next best thing to being there live. I enjoy their concerts like I do my favorite bands. Even if you aren't a video game fan or even a classical music fan, the two of them together create a fun chemistry. It's a unique experience. I really like the behind the scenes and interviews. I'll definitely be waiting for their next concert when they're in town!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Video Game Live is awesome May 21 2011
Format:DVD
I really like the idea of having a symphonic orchestra playing the video game songs I think it was awesome and really well made. I like the comments but mostly the music. So if you like video game and their music it's a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music, format could have been better Oct. 25 2010
By B. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert but an average BD Oct. 19 2010
By R. Caymo - Published on Amazon.com
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. But what you really getting is a front heavy assault with the surrounds left for the audience. Most live BDs achieve the envelop sensation almost perfect, this one not so much. Maybe this was by design, but it sounds more like a Jazz Club rather than an Amphitheater. It is a bit disappointing, but overall the great music lets you hear past this.

EXTRAS:
Loads of extras on this one! If you are an old school gamer like me, you will probably appreciate the interview with Ralph Baer (Father of Video games), the making of Dragon's Lair, and the documentary on Tetris. But other than that there are bunch of behind the scenes and interviews.

Overall I would say pick this one up. Whether you are a BD enthusiast, musician, gamer (of course), you will enjoy this 100%. These concerts stand apart from many others you will ever see. Check it out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointed March 27 2011
By Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
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 Disappointed at the lack of Final Fantasy finale Oct. 26 2011
By J. Wu - Published on Amazon.com
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 Oct. 22 2010
By entertainer in training - Published on Amazon.com
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.
