Brainy game show, but the excitement was left behind.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

There is a sense of excitement in the Who Wants to be a Millionaire television show that is just lacking in the video game. There are only two game modes -- singleplayer and head-to-head multiplayer -- and the lack of variety bogs the game down a bit. The questions can be real brain teasers, though, and Millionaire bears more in common with board games like Trivial Pursuit than it does with other video games like Buzz.
