True to the Show but Lacking Imagination

This game holds true to the game show very well. I think the creators have done a good job taking the tv show and bringing it to the wii. What takes the fun away from this game is not having an objective other than winning imaginary money. The game would have benefited from having a system that allowed you to spend your won money to buy improvements and customize aspects of the game or to unlock other playable characters or areas in the game. As it is, this game is good to rent for a night or two, but not to own as it would get tedious very quickly.
The other downside I found to the game play was the total lack of and AI to compete against. Without another body around, the other game modes are pretty worthless. Overall, not a bad game to have at a party, but not a game I would enjoy owning.

This game was horrible, my boyfriend and I just got it in the mail today and needless to say we will be sending it back tomorrow, we played for about 5 mins and then we were done. I would not recommend this game to anyone.

This game makes you feel like you are on the show. I enjoyed playing solo with a couple friends in the room helping out. The multi player games weren't as much fun. They took a lot longer. Good, cheap, entertainment. The questions can be challenging so get ready!
