"This is a pretty kewl DVD for what it is. I bought it knowing that there was a 3-D adventure on there, and it's good for what it is. However, I also thought that the actual episode "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" was also on it. The Actual episode is *NOT* on there as well. It is just the 3-D adventure. The animation of it is adequte and very reminiscent of the Xena game for Playstation if you've seen that. The computer animation isn't as good as the new Johnny Quest series on Cartoon Network . The voices are not the same as the episode (i.e. Xena, Gabrielle, Joxer, Bacchus, Orpheus) - they are not voiced by Lucy Lawless, Renee O'Connor, and Ted Raimi. However, the actors try to do as best as they can to at least imitate the spirit of the characters, though Gabrielle is sometimes played a little too young and melodramatic, but that's also some of the writing. Zeus and Hera narrating the story are hilarious. Hera is very reminiscent of Xena's disguise of "Ezra" in the 3rd season episode, "Vanishing Act." Nothing like Meg Foster as Hera in "God Fearing Child," but very funny in a Fran Drescher sort of way. Also, you can not fast forward this or skip to chapters or anything. If you want to try another choice, you have to start all the way at the beginning. Still, it's nice to see scenes that could have been in the episode and some great lines, like Bacchus referring to Joxer as the "stupid funny man," or all the times Xena and Gabrielle get to tell Joxer to shut up. Joxer fans, don't fear, he has some good lines of his own. The possibility of different endings is nice, and it definitely will require multiple viewings before you can experience all of the different choices. Also, ignore the picture of Xena and Callisto on the cover. Callisto is not in this - at least, I haven't found her in it. However, for a big Xena fan like me, it's pretty kewl to have, especially to impress fellow Xena fan friends."

"This an DVD is interactive 3D adventure. It does not star Lucy Lawless, it is a 3D animated adventure. However, it is still a MUST HAVE for Xena fans. Use your remote control of your DVD player to make choices as decide what Xena will do next. You decide what happens next, which weapon to use, and more. It is very cool. If you don't like making choices, just watch the movie and it will still play out. I believe it was adapted from one of the shows and several "multipaths" were added.Also, another title coming out soon is Superman, Menace of Metallo. If you like this one, check it out too.Very cool way to use your DVD player..."

"Just to clarify, this DVD is a multi-path interactive adventure. Bacchus, the great God of Wine, had always been a kind and benevolent God who reveled in love and happiness--until something terribly evil happened that changed him. Bacchus has spawned an army of fanged vixens, the Bacchae. They are attacking and recruiting young village girls, and killing everybody else. You join Xena, Gabrielle and Joxer to find out why Bacchus has gone mad. Together you can stop him, before it's too late. Only you can decide Xena's possible fate."

"I was highly impressed with this DVD. I wasn't expecting much from it, but I was blown away by the graphics and the outcomes of our choices. Although it isn't Lucy Lawless providing the voice of Xena, they picked a pretty good vocal double. The DVD is excellent, a must have for any Xena collector!"
OH COOL! It's an INteractive GAME DVD!

"Hi all! This is my second review, agreeing that I made a boo boo below. At first, I thought this was only the episode. As it turns out, it's the episode PLUS an added twist. You get to decide the fate of the story by selecting what moves our dynamic warrior women will do. Xena (Lucy Lawless) Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor). All right! A Xena game for a great price. Hope they do more like this. Yiyiyiya!"
