Norman's Interactive Film Quiz is
one of the many interactive DVD quiz games currently being
released in the run up to Christmas 2006. While the majority
of these DVDs have been hit or miss (with the majority being
"miss"), Barry Norman's offering hits the nail on
long last here's an interactive DVD that uses the format correctly.
Instead of randomly generating questions (which on other releases
can be repeated a little too frequently) this DVD offers you
a choice of 16 "Screens". Each "Screen"
consists of 25 multiple choice questions.
you need to do then is divide yourselves into teams (or you
can play alone) and write down your answers. After every question
you have the option to repeat it or continue to the next one.
Then, after all 25 question have been answered you have the
option of repeating individual questions (in case you missed
any out) or have the answers revealed.
great thing about this release is the fact that everyone has
to answer the same questions, making it a much fairer quiz.
On the negative side you could argue that once you've played
all 16 games then the DVD is useless. However, I'd argue that
that is not the case. For starters 16 games is a lot unless
you fancy sitting down and playing them all over a few nights.
And, unlike similar quiz DVDs, you won't get the same questions
repeated in the same game.
difficulty of the questions are just right too and on even
the really tricky ones you can make an educated guess. There
is also a nice mix of old and new movies in each game - guaranteeing
that all the family should be able to answer some of the questions.
to this the fact that you get a score sheet pad, four free
cinema tickets, six free DVD rentals and money off vouchers
(all of which are redeemed at Vue cinemas and online rental
website), and you have yourself a pretty impressive release
with loads of freebies for the movie lover in your family.
you are thinking of buying an interactive DVD then make sure
it's this one.
