"Dave Mustaine unleashes his band's arsenal but doesn't empty the barrels on this 2 disc set. The DVD is basically the Chronology of Megadeth, through various TV clips as well as music videos and commercial spots. It's a very interesting DVD because even though it clocks in at close to 3 hours for both discs total, it doesn't at all seem like you spent 3 hours watching it. The presentation is A plus, even though a few videos weren't included. One thing I would've liked was if Mustaine actually explained the departure and addition of members, not to sling mud, but maybe to shed light on why he chose who he chose, as he does have a history of picking un-metal players and making total metal shredders out of them. Bonus features are, well their really are none. Also thereis this constant gapping or "Bleeping", as it seems Mustaine has chosen to edit his language based on his new beliefs. The mix of music videos and Live footage is great, a lot of videos that went by I had no idea they made. I was really happy with this release, I'm definetly not the biggest Megadeth fan in the world, but this DVD was a great reminder to me and you as well of how great this band really is. I'm giving this a 4."
People are not being honest.

"In terms of content, I have basically no complaint. A couple videos are missing, but most are there. (Not counting the non-Capitol videos, that's a rights issue.) However, there are some major issues with this release:
1. Video quality. This can only be described as grainy at best. I'm talking about the official music videos. I'd rate most of the first discs videos on par with an old VHS tape. The newer material looks better, but still lacks. Bootleg footage and old interviews are going to look crappy and I'm not counting those.
2. Sound Quality. The sound quality may be even worse than the video quality. The proof that most of these videos were just carted over from VHS is when a sound mistake that appears on the Rusted Pieces VHS at the end of Hangar 18 appears in the exact same spot on the DVD. Also, there is a lot of cracking, and volume varies from one track to the next.
3. Censorship. Just about any word that could be slightly considered offensive is blanked out. (This also blanks out any music that may be playing too.) I was almost surprised that the word Hell wasn't censored from the song "Go to Hell." The phrase, "This about how many times I tried to kill myself, but just couldn't get the f#@$%ng job done..." Is cut out from the beginning of "Skin of My Teeth." Also, the song "Holy Wars" has had any of it's "controversial" war footage removed and replaced with bland nonsense.
I'm only hard on this because I've waited for this since DVDs became popular, and this effort was not worth the money."
This (DOES NOT) have everything!

"This is a good, solid collection. I was eagerly anticipating this 2 DVD release, you could say I was chomping at the bit, and sharpening my axe for it. Many reviewers here are correct, this does not contain all Capitol era Megadeth videos. This collection, plays more like a gathering of the Megadeth video collection VHS tapes that were released while they were labeled at Capitol (Rust in Pieces, Exposure of a Dream and Evolver VHS releases). Yes there are some cool features that merit this a 3 star release such as the unreleased live footage from Clash of the Titans and Giganatour, plus all the archival interviews, TV appearances, promo clips, etc is all cool stuff and I'm glad its included. The censors are annoying but just deal with it it's not a big deal. The video qaulity is OK but thats because as I mentioned earlier, most of the videos here are transferred straight from the video collections.The sound mix is good, and what's really important is the the videos that are included have the original mix, these videos do not contain that recently remastered and remixed sound that Mustaine did to his entire Megadeth capitol catalog last year. And that's important because I though some of those remastered albums sounded horrible. But here is why I do not give this DVD release 5 stars because of the absence of these music videos:
99 Ways To Die
But all in all a solid 3 star collection. Hopefully the missing videos will appear on the second volume of Arsenal as Mustaine and Co. do have about 4 to 5 videos made from the World needs a Hero, System Has Failed albums."

"If your dissapointed by this dvd then I guess your not a true Megadeth fan, but I understand if some fans were slightly upset because of a few missing music videos but still you can't complain when you have two dvd's worth of material that runs for 2 and a half hours. The arsenal of Megadeth is one of the best music dvds I've seen so far but the only problem is the fact that they have choosen to censor all the bad language which I don't understand why they did this, they should have just put an advisory explicit lyrics sticker instead. Still this dvd is fantastic it has all 20 music videos from Peace sells to Insomnia, over 20 minutes of unreleased live footage from tours like Clash of the titans, MTV live 95 and Gigantour 2005 you also get archival interviews throughout the years from 1986 untill 1998 and a couple of tv appearances, promotions, behind the scenes footage ect. Overall this highly anticipated dvd is definetely worth it. Buy this dvd now, IT ROCKS!!!
Peace sells...But who's buying."
