The main game is true to the show, but you also have the option to play head to head without spoilers. You can set the difficulty level. There is also a mode to just do regular crossword puzzles. It's not terribly exciting, but neither are pen and paper crosswords.
For the person who loves crossword puzzles this is not a bad game. I had my wife sit down and play it because she is a crossword fanatic. After playing, her only criticism was that the game won't let you fill in an answer wrong which takes part of the fun out of doing a crossword puzzle. You can't go back and say "oh wait, that word I put there doesn't actually work." My criticism like so many other wii titles is the lack of using miis and a clunky profile system. For the crossword lover, this is a buy game and not a rent because of the replay-ability and different game modes. Overall, not exciting, but true to it's title. "Crosswords"
