Who Wants to be a Millionaire

You've seen the show? You've seen that game... The game is a basic replica of the show in that you answer questions that vary in difficulty, getting harder and harder with each question. Some of the questions are a joke, being so easy to answer it's not funny. Once you start getting up there in money, the questions get harder and harder. The first time I played, I got up to $32k before I blew the question. Not bad. I only wish I could do that in real life. If you are into trivia type games this is a good one for you to get. The music gets old (as does the show's music) but it's not that bad and Regis talks to you to ask you the questions. I enjoyed it.

Graphics/Display:

The graphics for the game are ok, nothing to go overboard over though. It takes the main stage from the show and puts you in a ranged view, and when you go to the question, it zooms into the monitor and that's about all you see. It's pretty basic.

Interface/Controls:

Game control is really basic. Other than the keys you use to type in your name, you use the a,b,c or d keys, or you use the letters of the lifelines (phone=p etc). Either than that, there are no other controls.

Multiplayer (if any):

Summary:

The gameplay is simple, answer the increasingly harder questions to win a million dollars. You get 3 lifelines just like the show, the "50-50", "phone a friend", and "ask the audience" ... The 50-50 is the only true lifeline in the game, as the others are more of a guess, and you have to figure out if they are right or not. At least in the show, your friends will tell you they don't have a clue. Overall I liked the game. I enjoy trivia games, and thus, another trivia game goes to me to play. The questions are interesting and tend to keep you on your toes. I got up to $32k so far, and as little as $1000 when I blew a question about popcicles (how the hell was I suppose to know that orange is the most popular flavor?)
