  • Summary: The hit TV show is coming to your favorite video game system! The premise is simple: You have 26 briefcases in front of you. Each one contains a different amount of money. Open each case one by one, and try to find the briefcase with the biggest amount of money. Deal Or No Deal?

  1. If you want a quick fix of Deal or No Deal on the go and you can overlook the dodgy graphics, the limited amount of Noel's speech and the fact it's just one five-minute game with some padding with the 'find the mug in the box' and Forfeit mode sections, then you'll enjoy this.
  2. You’ll wonder why you bought this game when you could just be picking random numbers out of a hat. When you see this title on the shelf of your local retailer, if you’re smarter than a fifth grader your final answer will be “No Deal.”
  3. In conclusion, Deal or No Deal is an interesting twist on the original TV show with the inclusion of a variety of mini-games that although are quite forced still shakes things up for the player as the game does not just become a number picking or gambling game.
  4. Save yourself the trouble and just say "No Deal".

    It's a boring, pointless, annoying game that is fundamentally broken and thus rendered completely absurd, much like Howie Mandel himself. To top it off, the game isn't even budget priced, making it an even worse deal.
  6. A $30 game about winning fake money by picking random numbers is awful to begin with, but a completely broken version of said game is another story altogether.
  7. Just as bad as the TV show...if not worse. [Issue#17, p.92]

    this game is fantastic. the game will keep you occupied for hours as you try for the big cash prize multiple times. I was in love when the show came out and now Im more than thrilled to be playing it on my DS. It really feels like your there. Strongly Recommended Expand

    The graphics aren't very good, very uh blothcy.... And there are only a very low ammount of statements the host actually says... Very boring.

    Deal or no Deal is a sad enough tv show to watch. As a game, it's abysmal. People look like cardboard cutouts, and sound is awful and samey. But you haven't even scraped the surface with that. See, if you enjoy picking numbers out of boxes, Deal or no Deal is for you. Anyone with half a brain could make a deal or no deal game without electronics. There's also a board game out of deal or no deal. Its existence on consoles is absolutely pointless. In addition to the main game, there are other modes barely worth mentioning. They're supposed to be extras, but in realoty the best extra would be for this game to burn. If someone tries to sell this to you, whatever the price, even if it's free, say no deal. Expand

    This gets a zero, not only is the game show format terrible and its a mystery to why people watch it but the game is broken and offers no challenge. A horrendous game of unspeakable crapness gets a 1 but a broken version of it is believe it or not even deal Expand

    This game might entertain a kid for a few moments, but so will an empty cardboard box, and that's much cheaper.

    This has got to be the most useless game of all time, of all TIME. Whoever got the idea to make this game MUST HAVE BEEN fired, and if not then this world really has gone crazy. Expand
