The host is too robotic and not human enough. Like his sound bytes are too repetitive.
The clock keeps going after the choice is made. The host asks "Is that your final answer?" and you cannot answer until the button is revealed on the screen which takes about 1.5 seconds.
It's a fact, the Wii has like 3 games that are actually fun, the rest are junk. I know Who Wants To Be A Millionaire isn't exactly riveting gameplay but this game is nothing short of boring after 2 mintues. No options for user levels, team play, etc... same thing repeatedly and the "party mode" is not done well at all. I can't believe they release junk like this but after playing other Wii games I guess it's on par for the system.

I had recently received this game and was eager to play since I enjoy the show. I was disappointed by the poor graphics and lack of Meridith Vieria as host. This game is played like the old verison of the show which is something I really enjoyed. The questions at first are pretty easy and get harder as you go up the winning scale. You also have the phone a friend, ask the audience and skip a question. The questions could be a little bigger, they are hard to read for how little time you have to answer. Also the controls dont always respond very well leading to you losing because time ran out. I would recommend this as a rental only. If you are not a fan of the show then stay away from this one. There are better game show games out there for the WII.

The game is great if you want to sit around answering trivia questions all day. I imagine this would be cool for a party to have on for some competition, but playing it alone after 20-30 minutes gets pretty boring...
My only complaint is it doesn't give you enough time after you use a "phone a friend or 50/50"- I have to click the answer and the yes I'm sure button real quick or you lose the game... lame!
I also found it weird that in 2 games in a row I got a Tim Cruise Question... anyways, so I'd recommend buying it for your collection if you like trivia games... but I wouldn't rent it unless you're having a party- cause you may as well do other online trivia games to make the time go by... if that's what you're going for...
Questions were good... nice mix of everything. I didn't play it enough to notice any repeats...
