"OK, for the record, these ARE all the complete games. The VIDEO is just what was broadcasted on gameday. The games are only edited slightly. And I'll tell you what has been cut out: 1. the commercials. 2. When CBS would, in between plays, put up the graphic and go through the starting lineups. 3. The footage that is shown when the network comes back from commercial (which serves only as a backdrop for ads/logos anyway). That's what I've noticed so far. But getting rid of that only streamlines things and you won't really notice it. That being said, the AUDIO is the Pittsburgh radio broadcast team, not the network commentary team. That is a little weird at first, since sometimes the screen is showing a stat or player and the radio guys are talking about something else entirely. The games start seconds before kickoff. But for the Super Bowl DVD, they do include the trophy presentation after the game, and you can hear each person talk and the music, just as on gameday. That was a nice touch. Essentially, all they took out was the audio track of the guys in the booth and looped in the radio team. Also as a bonus, they have include an NFL films piece on each DVD. There are segments on Chuck Noll, Hines Ward, Dick LeBeau, and Bill Cowher. I think this is a must buy for any fan who wants to relive the greatest run in Super Bowl history."

"The dubbing of steeler anouncers over the video is nothing short of outstanding. You get the Pittsburgh slant as you watch. Imagine what they said when Jerome fumbled in Indy, Ben made the tackle, then headcase Vanderjagt gave us the "immaculate redemption". Imagine what was said when Fast Willie broke it 75 yards for the TD or when Antwaan hooked up with Hines.
The one thing you have to get used to is the time between plays is totally cut out, and so just when you think you can get up and refill your chip bowl, the next play starts. All the plays are there, but the huddles and timeouts are gone. You decide whether that is good or not.
By far, if you are a steeler fan, you will want this in your collection. If you are a Cincy, Indy, Denver, or Seattle fan, you may want to wait for another year."

"For those out of state Steeler fans, this is a must get. Having Bill Hillgrove and Tunch Ilkin's radio broadcast synchonized with the action is great. Made me feel like I was back home in the 'burgh watching the game while listening in on the radio.
As others stated, you just get the action, the games are dubbed very well. NFL Films has done it right."
Only one dissapointment

"I really enjoyed watching the Steelers playoff run to the Superbowl again. My only dissapointment with the DVD's is that although they show every play, there were sections that were cut out. I like to watch the whole game, with pauses in play and all (exept for the commercials). For example, much of the coverage of Palmer being injured at the beginning of the Cininnati game were cut out. Overall, I would recommend buying the 4 DVD set."
