Summary: This item puts you right in the hot seat. It mimics the old Millionaire TV game with Regis, not the new one with Meredith Vearra. What I didn't like is that if you lose, the whole game is over. In the old millionaire game, you used to be able to just continue. I got very frustrated with the game because of that. However, to some people, that is acceptable and true to the original game. There is nothing wrong with that. I guess it just goes to personal preference.
Summary: I'm sorry, but 15 seconds is NOT enough time to even read the entire question and the 4 possible answers. For those speed readers, maybe okay, but for the rest of us, there should be some way to adjust the timer. NOT a good feature!
Conclusion: Even though this game is now only around a tenner I would not recommend it. Having played it around five times you begin to see the same questions over and over again. Who wants to be a millionaire is a good game format but this version could have done with a much larger bank of questions to improve its longevity.
Summary: I normally love this game, however they have made a slip up with the Nintendo DS version. Although the format, workings of the game and graphics are good, the same questions appear time and time again which means playing the game is very little challenge. I've only had my game a week and by the third go I was already seeing repeats. What a shame, if this problem had been rectified before release, I would have given it top marks!
Summary: This game simply does not have enough depth to it. It is what it is. Just like on TV with 50/50, "phone a frend" and "ask the audience" but its quickly boring. Some of the questions are quite difficult and I dont consider myself to be a stupid person!! Unfortunately - as I say in the title, it just doesnt have enough depth. Its not like other games where as you can unlock difficult things or get higher on levels.
Summary: I purchased this game based on the first review placed here but was sadly disappointed, the game is repetative and did not come up to expectations, the questions are repeated endlessly and the game lacks simple touches such as recording your highest score or signing in as a player. The game will keep you entertained for a short while but will not stay the distance...
