  • Summary: Join up to 6 other players as Anne Robinson slings over 100,000 questions (along with a few insults) at you in the home version of the popular T.V. game show.

  1. It has more questions than "Millionaire," a faster pace, and an entertaining blend of team sentiment and selfish strategy. [Holiday 2001, p. 68]
  2. While answering questions is fun, it gets boring watching the computer try to act like it's thinking about the answers and then waiting for a response.
  3. Offers a solid cerebral challenge. However, there are other trivia games, such as the "You Don’t Know Jack" series, that while adult-oriented are much more entertaining.
  4. But having been published under such a distinguished label as Activision, the ugliness of the presentation is unforgivable.
  5. If you're a big fan of The Weakest Link and have posters of Anne Robinson on your wall, then I guess it's fair to say you should seek psychiatric help – er, sorry I meant you should definitely consider buying The Weakest Link.
  6. So little has been done to jazz up the game's presentation that only those who long to hear more abuse spew from Anne Robinson's curled lips will find enough here to justify spending 20 bucks.
  7. If it’s trivia you’re after, read questions from Trivial Pursuit cards. Or pick up an Encyclopedia Britannica. Don’t, however, buy this game. [Feb 2002, p.99]
