A different take on the Vital Vision CD.
I was excited about receiving the Vital Information DVD, but that excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I realized what in fact it was; a compilation of articles in PDF format, some movie files from the D&DH TV show, and an "interactive" computer program with poor graphics and little functionality.
[font=calibri]To start, most if not all the articles could have been obtained by subscribing to D&DH magazine. Good information, but I've already got it in my magazines. [/font]
The 5 instructional hunting videos are OK, but nothing special, and if I watched the show I would have already seen these. They are not something I need to see more than once.
[font=calibri]Most disappointing was the Exclusive Vital Vision interactive computer program. It's interactive in only the most basic of functions; spinning a 3-D image of a transparent deer. And even in that, the controls are crude at best. As far as zooming in or zooming out, it really doesn't zoom but rather changes screen size. But that doesn't really matter, the graphics are so poorly rendered as to be only average quality at best.[/font]
[font=calibri]I can see what this CD would like to be, but it is just not there yet. This would be something I would have accepted in the late 1990's, but not from a product delivered today given the technology available. It is a start, but a long ways from a finished product.[/font]
[font=calibri]Had I paid $29.99 for the CD I would be sorely disappointed. [/font]
