Synopsis
Where once upon a time Xena, the Warrior Princess, could take on armies with just her strength and her cunning, now anyone with a DVD player can hold her fate in their hands. Xena: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is an interactive computer-animated DVD in which Xena and her partners Joxer and Gabrielle are forced to do battle with an army of vampires spawned by Bacchus; at key points of the story, the viewer must choose which actions the characters should take, and the result is an action story which can be played back in hundreds of different ways. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Ok, first off no one associated with the show had anything to do with this. The storyline and script are not close to the higher bar the TV show has. None of the voice actors from the show did this as well. I doubt any real Xena fans will like this much at all.

The real problem is that the entire "movie" is done using computer graphics. But not Final Fantasy/Pixar level, no, more like a Quake II engine. Lots and lots of blocky objects with textures. The lighting is awful. All the motion is badly motion captured. If any scene had more than 2000 polygons I'd have been amazed. The sound was equally bad. Any computer game you have bought recently has a better movie/story than this.

The multipath part was equally weak. At times you could make a decision(use the sword or kick), though it didn't really seem to make much of a difference in the storyline. I played it all the way through once, but didn't feel any desire to see if I could die or make the wrong choice. Everytime I did something they really didn't want me to do, the storyline would correct itself and force you the right way.

In all this is one of the worst DVD multipath type products I've ever seen. Avoid it and you will be much happier.
