The Game

 (1997)

The Game Blu-ray features mediocre video and great audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

There are no rules in "The Game". And that will make life very difficult for Nicholas Van Orton, a successful businessman who is always in control. Van Orton lives a well-ordered life - until an unexpected birthday gift from his brother destroys it all. Like it or not, Nicholas has been enrolled in a game - "a profound life experience" that begins quietly but soon erupts in a rush of devastating events. Van Orton has to win this deadly game or lose control of everything in his life.

For more about The Game and the The Game Blu-ray release, see the The Game Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Michael Douglas, Sean Penn, Deborah Kara Unger, James Rebhorn, Carroll Baker, Armin Mueller-Stahl
Director: David Fincher

The Game Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, David Fincher's The Game arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Studios-UK.

This is a dated and fairly inconsistent high-definition transfer. Portions of it, and specifically the daylight scenes, look fine - detail is decent, clarity adequate, and for the most part contrast levels acceptable. Unfortunately, the nighttime and indoor footage, which represents the bulk of the film, is problematic. First, there are various mild to strong compression artifacts that are extremely easy to spot. Second, background noise is rampant. It is not always consistent, but when it pops up, it is quite overwhelming. Third, traces of mild to moderate edge-enhancement could be seen throughout the entire film. Some noise filtering has also been applied. Finally, I noticed numerous tiny flecks popping up, which I am fairly certain will annoy a good number of viewers. All in all, from all of the catalog Blu-ray titles Universal Films-UK have released recently, The Game is clearly the most inconsistent one. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu. Please note that the main menu can be set in one of the following languages: English, French, German, Catalan, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, or Traditional Chinese).


The Game Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are seven audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, French DTS 5.1, German DTS 5.1, Catalan DTS 5.1, Portuguese DTS 5.1, Spanish DTS 5.1, and Russian DTS 5.1. For the record, Universal Studios-UK have provided optional English SDH, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Catalan, Dutch, and Traditional Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside in the image frame.

I don't have any major complaints about the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The bass is potent and punchy, the rear channels active and effective, and the high-frequencies not overdone. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. Howard Shore's music score is not prominent, but it is nevertheless well treated by the loseless audio track; there are no balances issues with it. Lastly, while viewing The Game I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or dropouts to report in this review.
