"Franta and Pugmire do a remarkable job staging a staggering number of fights with different possible outcomes that look polished, fun, exciting, inventive, and safe all at the same time...The large ensemble cast does a stupendous job of embodying the essence of their video game personas...If you grew up playing 'Mario Brothers,' 'Mega Man,' 'Donkey Kong,' 'The Legend of Zelda,' and/or 'Final Fantasy' you will love it. If you weren't into video games you will still have plenty to enjoy."
"An exceptionally smart concept. It is desperately seeking guidance and a strong outside perspective to assist to bring in a stronger plot and character development...It needs to feel unpredictable. It's clear that there were certain outcomes that were planned and thusly felt staged...There was an overall sense of discomfort from the cast. The play just needed to be tighter...There is great room for progress...'The Video Games' deserves an extra life. It's marketable."
