The Weakest Link (PS2): All the abuse!
5 September 2002
Summary: "Single player game? Have you got no friends then?" What a way to start eh? The beginning of the actual game renders the player drenched in gloom and despair and there you go; feeling useless before you've even started. Anyway, let's get on with it. I bought this game alongside Tony Hawk's Skateboarding 3, taking advantage of the 2 for £30 offer from HMV over the weekend. The PS2 is brand new in my life so I love to see offers like this to tempt me into newbies.
Pros: Can be a laugh if there's a good group playing, The insults can be really funny
Cons: Annoying contestants, Takes ages to get loaded up, Annoying game all round!
Summary: When a game has a box on the back stating ‘The version that gives you MORE abuse’ you know that you’re in for a thoroughly devious time. That feeling is increased further when we’re talking about a recreation of the popular television show ‘The Weakest Link’ featuring the Queen of put-downs, Anne Robinson.
Pros: Faithful recreation of the show, Many characters to choose, Great fun with several 'real' players
Cons: Gets repetitive within a month, Not much fun in single player mode
