Mildly entertaining

If you like the show, you will likely enjoy the game. Fun to play with family. Fun to get trophies and unlock new locations for the show to take place at. I won a car!

Could be fun with enough players

Gameplay is like watching the TV show and puzzles are good, not repetitive. Don't like that you can't turn of the round instructions though you can skip them - every single game. Only real gripe is that there aren't consistently a many players online to play against and AI players don't offer much competition.

Good for hardcore fans, but may cheat a little.

I've been a longtime fan of Wheel of Fortune so I was excited to check this game out.

The game that is available for rent here isn't the same one that they're paring with the IGN review, that was a download only title released a few years ago.

This has everything you'd expect from a video game based on this long running game show. The hosts are here, they both have voice overs, the graphics are about what you'd expect from a Wii game, short cartooney characters, sparsely detailed sets.

If you're a fan of the show you're going to like this, it's all here, you can create your own contestant and take on the AI or the world via online play (no pass required).

The biggest gripe I have with this game is that it seems like the wheel is weighted to make you land in the bankrupt wedge, 1/4 of your spins will result in you hitting this spot, kind of a buzzkill.

The trophies will initially pour like rain when you start playing but eventually will require a little grind, some requiring that you win 25-50 games. Nothing too terribly challenging there.

I don't think I can recommend this as a party game because the text entry system is a killer, it's the old school onscreen keyboard, it's 2012, we have microphones either via Kinect, Eye or any USB mic, why can't we just speak our answers into the system?

My girlfriend and I did however have fun helping eachother out.

I'd recommend this game only if you're a fan of the show, if you're looking for a cool game to keep your friends excited at your next party you might want to turn elsewhere.
