Not too bad
12 November 2008 | by (Minnesota, United States) – See all my reviews

This show premiered last night on the Sci-Fi Channel, and I have to say I enjoyed it. I compared it to "The Amazing Race" meets "Fear Factor." It also made me think of night games like sardines that I used to play as a kid. They call the game a 'live action video game.' Ten players are dropped on a 'Game Board' trying to survive for 60 minutes with out getting caught by a hunter to earn $25,000. Each player equipped with a map, a phone to receive game updates from the host and to call other players for help, and have a pack attached to their back (purpose is learned later). But that's not all, on the board, there are other things that will improve the game. There are flags that will earn the players more money if they win and items for evading the hunters. Some items are earned for individuals, some can be earned for the whole group.

As the game progresses, more hunters are added to the board. Most hunters are on foot and their purpose is to tag the runners. There is one hunter, introduced near the end of the 60 minutes that is on a motorcycle. They cannot tag the player, but they do inform the other hunters to their location. The hunters are basically my one gripe about the show. They were basically made to look and act like terminators. THEY ARE HUMAN, obviously electronics will not work on them, but the show makes it look like they do.

Interesting show to watch, but I think I'd rather play the game, than watch it be played.
