Deal or No Deal DVD Game is a DVD game based on the UK version of the show of the same name published by Channel 4 DVD for the 2006 holiday season in the United Kingdom as part of their 4DVD Interactive lineup of DVD Games. Despite sharing the same name, it has no connection to Imagination Entertainment's DVD game of the same name, which is based on the American and Australian versions.
Why It Sucks
The game is painfully slow to run, even on higher-end DVD players, computers, and consoles.
Basically, the game will run like garbage no matter what item you chose to play it on, making it almost unplayable.
The game is prone to randomly crashing or straight up not even work at all. The keep case actually says that the game won't work on most DVD Players, but it's in very small print that not everyone will even notice.
Due to the way the live video was recorded, you can't choose what numbered box you want, the game only lets you choose Box 5.
Extremely long and frequent loading times represented by a boring black or blue screen.
You have to scroll through box by box to get to the one you want, and as there's only one box on each screen (which takes about 15 seconds to load), it can be insanely boring to get to the one you want to open.
The amounts of money in the boxes when opened are not randomized, say you might get a long line of reds or blues instead of a mixture of both. There are also chances when the game will end up recycling the same layout you would have gotten beforehand.
The dialogue is very repetitive and lacks variety, especially when you ask the contestants for advice about what to do (eg, when the Banker offers you money), they will say the same things over and over again.
A heavy amount of bugs and glitches, including lag throughout the clips and clips even ending before they're supposed to end.
It's nothing more than a cheap Christmas cash-grab made to cash-in on the success of the game show itself.
Noel Edmonds is still the host of the game like he was in the show, and there are real contestants from the first series of the show opening the boxes in-game.
All the live-action footage used was specially made.
The second DVD Game - Family Challenge, released a year later, fixes the problems this game has and makes the experience a lot faster.
