Over the past several years, DVD games of game shows have become quite popular. When they are well made they can be rather fun to play, but if they haven't been developed well then the fun and excitement of game play is stifled. Even though I really enjoy the show, "1 Vs. 100" has aired rather infrequently on television. Therefore, when I picked up the DVD game at a discounted price, I was concerned about how well the game would play. I did not need to be concerned.
The 1 VS. 100 DVD GAME plays fairly close to the actual game on television. Just like in the show, Bob Saget hosts. In the introduction he says that he will treat the viewer just like a contestant on the show and that's pretty much the case, bad quips, slow interludes, and all. A person can play the game and take on the DVD mob or other people can join in and participate as members of the mob (up to six other players can play). The only major difference between the DVD game and the actual game show is that Saget doesn't read off each of the questions or have any interaction with any of the mob members.
My family and I really enjoyed playing the 1 VS 100 DVD GAME. We played the game eight or nine different times over a series of a few days and none of the questions were repeated nor did the game give incorrect answers. Also, the questions are on the same difficulty level as they are on the show.
As much as we liked the game, however, there are a few minor annoyances. In the interludes between when the contestant selects the correct answer and the correct answer appears on the screen, the same comments are repeated by Saget. I will say that they have given him about five or six different comments instead of the usual two or three that other hosts of DVD games have, e.g. Howie Mandel on the DEAL OR NO DEAL DVD GAME. The other thing that is a little annoying is that game doesn't seem to allow anyone to get above the $6,000 range of questions before one eliminates the mob. For many people this won't be an issue--on the show contestants rarely got above the $7,000 mark either--but for people who would like to see a few more difficult questions, it is a minor annoyance.
Overall the 1 VS. 100 DVD GAME is a well developed DVD game, with only a few minor annoyances, that is fun to play both as an individual and with a group of people.

Host Bob Saget asks you to take the money, or the Mob in this DVD game based on the hit NBC TV show. Players compete with 100 DVD Mob Members for $1,000,000.00 (in pretend DVD money, of course). You can also compete against a Home Mob made up of other players, or choose to be in the Home Mob. Either way, just like on TV, the money increases the more questions you get right, but so does the pressure. So, which will you choose when Bob asks the big question, the money, or the Mob.
