All of you that voted this game anything higher than a 3 star is a crazy person. It is boring, pointless, somewhat annoying and completely uneventful. When you win something like say a big vacation package, they don't even list what kind of trip it will be! Also the music is something from one of my nightmares. It will keep you happy for literally a minute, until you realize that the game never gets any better, it just gets worse and worse. Don't waste your time, or money.
To be fair, this game is pretty true to every aspect of the gameshow. The computer players even say "Big bucks, no whammies, no whammies!"
The single player pretty decent for a little while. The questions are reasonable, ranging from extremely easy (how many months in a year) to fairly hard (obscure questions about sports games from the 60s). The game doesn't ever change though so it gets boring fairly quickly.
As a multiplayer game, this game completely dropped the ball. First of all, if you only have 2 players, you aren't able to add any additional AI, so it's just the two of you. Second of all, the game will only recycle questions that you've already used in single player. So that makes the game completely unplayable since whoever was the person playing single player will be the one to know all the answers ahead of time.
If you're a fan of the show, rent it and play it for an hour, then put it back in the mailbox. Otherwise, it's not worth renting.
