One of the pluses of DVD is the way it handles dark images. A well-transferred disk can give you the truest blacks of any home video medium. The Game benefits from these rich, dark color transfers -- any movie that has important scenes in near-darkness benefits tremendously from the format. Zero video noise and sharp details of whatever objects are visible give these sequences almost the same quality they had in the theater.

The sound is also exceptional, if not as flashy as on some other DVDs. Oneof the director's strengths is his subtle use of sound, which is very evocative (try to think of Seven without recalling that film's oppressive soundtrack). The Game makes similar intelligent use of sound that adds to the film's suspense.
