Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (8 ):

This fun competition offers a new twist to the classic Plinko game by combining it with the question-and-answer angle of other popular game shows. It also strives to keep things upbeat by choosing contestants with a sense of humor and, since they're couples, expressing love for each other during the process.

Regardless of the positive vibes, The Wall is still a money competition, and sometimes there's some greedy behavior. But you can't help but feel suspense as the game is played. No doubt that families who enjoy this kind of entertainment will have fun tuning in and watching where the balls land.
