Disappointing and almost exactly like the PC Game

I was hoping that this game would be a little more than a "handheld version" of the PC Game that I tried a few months ago. It wasn't. You have only 4 characters to choose from - a black lady, two men (one young, one older, but he's not elderly), and an elderly white woman. That's not my problem. My problem is the beginning when you're on contestant's row and when your bid is incorrect, you get a "X". Three X's and the game is over.

You do get to play random games like Plinko, Cliffhanger, Check Out, etc, and do the showcase wheel and the final showcase, but the last one is only if you're lucky.

Overall, its an okay game, but I can't believe the retail price is $30. Glad I only rented it.

Do not do what I did and rent this game. This game is lame and should have never been made. At least the one on the Nintendo Wii is a lot better. You only get to pick from 4 people and you never get to go to the Showcase. That is why I am giving it a 1 out of 10. If I could give it a lower rank I would but I can't.

The television show is classic and entertaining to watch. The game, however, is a bit offbeat. It's got some of the games you love to see people play, like Plinko. The only thing the game is missing is Bob Barker. If there were a figure present in the game such as Bob, excessive bronzer and all, it would totally improve the game and create a much more familiar and personable experience.

Also, the retail amount of certain products is outdated, thus making accuracy a bit difficult.
