    In general though, video mode adds very little to the game for me. I much prefer short "non-pinball" ball gimmicks; such as The Battlefield in The Shadow or Jumping Rope in Champion Pub. So with that said, of the games I've owned, here are my video mode rankings from best to worst: Fish Tale, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Congo, The Shadow, then Johnny Mnemonic. Fish Tales is the best and with a subwoofer attached it sounds like WWIII. Bram Stoker's Dracula is fun, but even with the difficulty turned up, it's still too easy. Some additional reward for all last moment shots might add to the challenge. Congo and The Shadow are very similar. Dodge items coming from the top of the screen. I enjoy the rafting theme more, but take your pick. The Shadow certainly can be difficult. Johnny Mnemonic, despite being the lowest on my list is still fine. I have it ranked the lowest simply because the control is not intuitive.
