Interesting game but not very good. Slow beginning And an fun middle. Its seems thought like all the prices on the items are kinda random thought. Would be more fun if it had Bob Barkers voice or something and not just the announcer. No real thrill to get INTO the game. Its more of a "Hey look i just won $50,000 fake dollars" kind of 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.
