Is It Any Good?

Is it worth picking up if you have the original? Most of the show's best and most recognizable pricing games -- including Cliffhanger, Plinko, and Safe Cracker -- are in the original game, so, unless you really want to try new games like ½ Off (in which players try to determine which of two product prices is half its actual retail price) or Flip Flop (in which players have the option of reversing one or two pairs of numbers in a price), this follow-up isn't exactly essential. The real pity is that they didn't spend a couple of days in the last year working with either Bob Barker or new host Drew Carrey to add their voices to the game and give it a bit more personality.

The game captures the show's look and feel surprisingly well, but it's almost wholly lacking in personality, save that which announcer Rich Fields adds while describing products. That said, if you haven't played the original and are a fan of the show, it might be worth checking out. There's enough content here to keep people playing for several hours without encountering much repetition.

Online interaction: Not an issue.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
