"I was originally looking for a DVD-ROM version of this particular Anniversary edition but was informed by Digital Leisure that they did not make one, nor were there any plans to make one. They did inform me that there is an HD-DVD version of Dragon's Lair, but as I do not own an HD-DVD player, that option was out.
They also said that, when choosing between the two (DVD-Video vs CD-ROM), the DVD-Video has the best quality but doesn't quite behave like the arcade game (different DVD players will have a pause after you make a move that can affect the playing experience). The CD-ROM version plays more like the arcade game but the quality is not as good.
I went for the DVD-Video version for quality, and I'm not disappointed. Brought back some very fond memories of spending multiple tokens to complete Dragon's Lair and Space Ace. I never got to play Dragon's Lair 2 in the arcade so this was brand-new to me.
There are different versions of the 20th Anniversary Edition. Get the one that's labeled "DVD-Video, PS2 & XBox Compatible". You should be able to play it on any set-top DVD player and your PC's DVD drive. And one final word:

"Can't say it's a horrible game. Really takes you back to the good old days of mom pulling you away from the direction of the arcade in the mall just so you couldn't dump her money into this machine. Now that you're older and can afford your own junk, a good way to spend money and remember why being a kid will never be the same.
It is what it is, and entertains like it should. I'm stoked that it came with 3 games (never seeing the sequel, anywhere ever!), and have peered through them all. Lots of great bonus stuff (including a "Starcade" episode), and extra scenes. My only problem is that the early game is too easy (almost) and the other two (the sequel and "Space Ace") are just frustratingly hard! You'll replay scene after scene, dozens of times before you advance to the next one. And then it's your last life and you gotta start all over, hoping you remembered what direction to go.
Because of the jumpiness of the scenes, I played it on my Playstation 2, making it easier to manuever the little bugger around.
Cool concept (way ahead of its time) and a nice trip down your childhood, Dragon's Lair is a great buy."
