First of all if you dont like the price is right this isnt for you. The aspect of the game plays great, as far as bidding one player. The multiplayer could of been a lot better. unlike most wii games you cant use your own miis. long story short it will get at most 10 hours and then be sent back to gamefly. its a shame cause ive been watching the show for 15 years. And there is no bob or drew.
The Price is Right is one of those TV shows everyone wants to be on. Screw “American Idol”; offer the public the chance to win a ceiling fan and a toaster oven and they’ll line up half a mile to grab a seat. Bob Barker made his legacy on this seemingly simple past time and has entertained millions in the process. Now this afternoon delight has ditched the soap operas and talk shows to leave its mark on the gaming world for the umpteenth time. A new video game has taken up the reigns and allows you, your friends, and even your grandma the chance to “come on down”. The question still remains, however, is the price in fact right?
The Price is Right has over 70 games in its current rotation and nearly 30 retired ones to boot. So why is it that this Wii title only has 16? It does have some of the fan favorites including Plinko, Cliff Hangers, and Punch a Bunch but those alone don’t make up for the fact that over 75% of the lineup is missing. Seriously, it’s not like the disc was lacking any space for more as most hardly use complicated controls at all.
Each of the eight playable characters shows very little emotion throughout the entire game. The most you’ll see them doing is craning and turning their heads. When they finally do show some sort of reaction it’s so mechanical and unrealistic that it’s almost comical to watch. A big item gets wheeled out on stage… “It’s a new CAR!” what does your character do? Nothing. “It’s a trip to luxurious… PARIS!” Nada. To be fair, the character models are pretty good; it’s just too bad they’re limited to so few expressions.
Overall, it’s a shallow, lackluster game. A poor display in content and controls, it’s hardly worth a rent. Even for the diehard Price is Right fan, the entertainment this game rewards you with doesn’t hold a candle to what the hour long TV show brings to the table. So to answer the age old question, the price is most definitely wrong.
