I love this game show on TV so figured this would be fun for the family (all over 22 years old) to play during Thanksgiving. We played a few rounds, which was fun at first, then it got boring. The questions were either super easy or really difficult. I was surprised to find that you cannot choose different levels of difficulty. I sent it right back as soon as possible and will not get this game again.
All in all, it's probably not worth your time. We played the standard bowling game that came with the system more than this game.
I have to admit that I never watched the show in the 80's, so I rented it purely as a fan of game shows in general. I have to admit, I was so disappointed that I put the game back in the mail an hour after I received it!
The questions are either insulting to your intelligence or so difficult that a blind guess is your only chance. The gameplay is as stiff as a piece of plywood, and the graphics hover on the low end of the Gamecube.
This can all be forgiven if the game was exciting, which it is not. There is no career mode, no real create a player, and no way to change the difficulty. All you are left with is a game that takes about fifteen minutes to play.
If you loved the game in the 80's, give it a try, but if I were you, I wouldn't Press Your Luck.

our family was excited to play this game together. we quickly became very disappointed. the game is very boring, no alternate modes to play and just very plain. you only get 2 rounds in multi player and single was not any better. for such an exciting game on tv, we were just very disppointed. i highly suggest rental before purchase for sure.
