Summary: I really loved watching this game show as a kid even if it was before my time they still had reruns... this game made me feel a bit ripped off as the questions seem to repeat themselfs too much after playing only about 5 times.
Summary: I purchased this game as a surprise for my wife as she used to love this gameshow when she was growing up. As most of these types of games, it is difficult to duplicate the television gameshow experience that you hope for. Press Your Luck for Wii is for up to 3 players and is similar to the actual show. It has the cartoon whameys and the game board looks like the real deal. So, what's the problem then? It is just a little lacking.
Summary: This game is fun, however I was expecting a little more. When you do land on a whammy it is not exactly like what you experience on t.v. The whammies just simply appear on the screen they do not speak or sing like you see on the actual game show. I was a little disappointed in this feature of the game. Besides that point it is pretty realistic to the features of the original game show verision.
Summary: Overall, this game is lot like the classic show, but it's cheesiness prevents it from being that much fun. You're likely to get bored with it in a short time. Like other reviewers have suggested, this game's MSRP should be much lower or they should give us several game shows for the price of one game. Just being able to use your Mii character would be a significant improvement. The game's avatars are pretty poor.
Games missing critical details, feels rushed to market

Summary: I bought PYL for my wife for Christmas, and was also interested because we were both such big fans as kids back in the day. My wife likes the game fine, but for me, there are a few things that make it disappointing. First and foremost is the boop-boop-boop that plays when you're pressing your luck.
Summary: I purchased this game as a Christmas gift for my daughters who love the game show. They were so excited to play it but every time they go to play together they have to sync the wii wands. They have only been able to play once together. It is much more fun to play with others than alone. Also, the questions are the same each time. I played two consecutive games and every question is the same. When you know every answer there is no challenge.
Summary: I bought this game for nostalgic reasons. It is cute and has the whammies like the game show. The only problem is that the questions are way too easy (and believe me, my husband and I are not rocket scientists). I have only played with two players, have not tried to take it on as a single player. I think the more players, the more fun since you have to buzz in as quickly as possible.
