Merv Griffin's Goodbye
Michael Kerner "Michael Kerner", Amazon

Summary: It is hard to believe that we've seen classic game shows really start to dominate for the Nintendo Wii. Recently, classic shows like The Price Is Right, and nighttime favorites like Deal Or No Deal and Jeff Foxworthy delivering his wit and Redneck humor with Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? make their way to the P.C., as Deal or No Deal is set to make its way to the Wii.
Summary: Really wanted Wheel of fortune but read that this game is simaliar to it and they don't make Wheel of fortune for the Wii yet. This game was so hard, and if you actually know the answers you can gain a bunch of money, but once you can't answer one, somebody else can take your spot with your money. We did change that in the options but the questions were still hard. While my husband played the game, I tried to hurry and find the answers online.
Summary: I don't know what, if any, the previous reviewer, Michael, stake has in this game but I too enjoyed the tv version of this game. The game would be great if it weren't for the stupid wiimote. Now, I am a big fan of the wiimote for most other games but for this one the wiimote is ill-designed. You have to use the wiimote to "type" in your answers and the wiimote is sooo jiggly (used the regular one AND the motion sensitive one) that when you go to type in your letter..
Summary: It is as described and what was expected. Now I have to add more characters to this rating so I won't be annoyed for comments that are not really required. The only time comments are generally made is when a product doesn't live up to expectations or is so extremely, overwhelming superior than its competitor products. Well, that should be enough characters in this rating to satisfy.
Summary: lets see where do i begin?................the instructions go on and on......and are not clear...... merv is so busy talking and doing his thing that its hard to pay attention to the game and infact slows playing time.................i dont really need to the music and all the chatter.....could just be me.........but i dont play it anymore....
Summary: It is a pretty good game. I have the PC version, which is the same as the actual show. Only difference is that the video game version offers in increments of $500 while the PC version offers in increments of $50. Overall, it is still a cool game.
Summary: It's bizarre, I know, but I'm a massive fan of the show, so I'm likely a tad biased towards the game. Basically, if you like the show, you'll like this. The game is essentially the same as the one you see on TV, and they give you a plethora of option, such as taking out spoilers, changing the difficulty and what clues you get, and getting themed puzzles.
