Excellent

"OK, let's start by mentioning that there are TWO versions of this DVD. There is a DVD-ROM version which requires Windows 95/98 to run, and there is THIS version (called DVD-VIDEO) which does NOT require a computer to run. Both versions are manufactured by Digital Leisure. Here is the scoop on both versions...DVD-ROM version:
-Requires Windows 95/98 to run. (I don't know if it will work with Windows 2000 or Windows Me)
-Has smoother game play. From what I have heard from other people, the game play on this version is practically flawless.
-I don't think that this version has the "watch" feature, which lets you view the entire animation without actually playing the game.
DVD-VIDEO Version:
-Does NOT require a computer to run.
-When I use this on my Sony DVD player that is hooked to my TV, the game play is painful. There are 2-3 second gaps between moves that makes the game almost unbearable. However, when I play this on my computer's DVD drive, the game play is quite good. There are still gaps between moves, but only about 1/4 of a second or so.
-Has a "watch" feature that lets you view the entire animation without playing it. This is very cool!
-Works on MOST DVD players, except some Toshiba models.
WHY I BOUGHT THIS VERSION:
Even though the game play is better on the DVD-ROM version, I decided to buy the DVD-VIDEO version for a couple of reasons...
-The "watch" feature was important to me. I wanted the ability to just sit back and take in the whole beautiful animation without having to do shoot, left, left, shoot, etc.
-I wanted this purchase to last. In other words, I didn't want to be forced to buy a new version of this product when I switch my computer system over to Windows 2000 (or whatever Bill Gates comes up with next).
ABOUT THE ACTUAL GAME:
What can I say??? This game is an arcade classic, and a personal all-time favorite of mine. The images on the DVD look EXACTLY like they did in the arcade. I can not tell any difference. It is awesome, and I love it!!!"
A Great Classic Brought back in DVD

"Back in the 80's Space Ace was a game for people to get in line because it was a lot of fun. Space Ace has been in every format, and now after almost 20 years from its release we can enjoy it in our house with our DVD's. There is a little pause between every move to the game but that will vary from player to player. There is also a "watch" option that lets you relax and watch the hole game without playing it. A great Classic. Don Bluth made a great game."
Emulates the old arcade game very well

"If you plunked a lot of quarters into the old Dragon's Lair or Space Ace arcade games then give this game a shot. The graphics and move sequences of Space Ace DVD-ROM emulate the arcade game almost perfectly. The only shortcomings of this game are that the "good move", "bad move" sounds are missing. Also, the timing of some of the moves is slightly off in some areas, which means that you have to make your move a split second before the "danger" appears. Other than that, it's like having a "Space Ace" arcade game on your computer!If you have never heard of or played "Space Ace" however, then I don't really recommend it. By today's standards, it is not that great of a game. I bought it largely as a nostalgia item."
Space ace the bomb

"Space Ace [Blu-ray]

Incredible conversion and bug free despite some reviews. check sound output is linear on your PS3 and enjoy the 5.1 surround mix on your biggest 1080p screen.

Cannot wait for DL2 to go on blu-ray as Dig Leisure have really gone the extra mile in perfecting this product. Obviously there is no future plan to convert DL3 as that product was a severe embarrasment of the past and was nothing more than a pathetic recording of somebody playing DL3D.

But as for DL1 DL2 and space ace you would have to be brain dead not to snatch these titles up while they last. Simply the most superb interactive movie computer games ever created and have been for over 25 years for those gamers too young to recall their massive impact. My package from Amazon arrived here in Australia just 4 days after paying for them which completely stunned me."
