I think we've all played tile shuffling games before, but this is a really cool twist. The live video makes even the simple puzzles much more challenging. The selection of music was great, too -- so many other games feature only one or two good songs, but I liked virtually everything on the disk. Unquestionably one of the better uses of FMV.
All Game Guide
A game that could have been a lame music video compilation instead ends up as one of the most interesting and original puzzle games ever conceived. After playing the game through, you can't help but want more videos, more puzzles, more Vid Grid fun. The game may not be a classic masterpiece, but it is one of the most enjoyable experiences you'll have on your Jaguar.
Not bad... Well, at least I can now say that I've played at least one good Jag CD title. I'm not sure if this game is enough to justify the platform, but it's well worth checking out. Good music from good bands combined with a challenging puzzle keeps you going, but I recommend you have the memory card before you play this game so that you don't have to keep repeating earlier levels. Playback on the music videos was impressive, there was compression errors evident in both the audio and video, but not enough to distract from game play though. Definitely check this one out.
Wer sich wie ich in der glücklichen Situation befindet alle Songs zu mögen und ein kurzweiliges Spiel für zwischendurch sucht kann sich einen Kauf überlegen. Mag man aber nur einen Teil der Lieder und sucht einen Titel für längere Sessions ist man hier eher falsch. Schöne Videos, einfaches aber forderndes gameplay, viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten…Vid Grid ist definitiv eines der besseren CD Spiele für den Jaguar aber leider noch lange kein Hit.
The Video Game Critic
Videos with strobe light effects like Enter Sandman are tough enough to watch unscrambled. Trying to solve a 5x5 puzzle of it is headache-inducing. And for any replay value at all, you need the memory track so you don't have to replay all the early puzzles each time you play.
