    A little repetitive, but still amusing. [Jan 2002, p.88]
  2. One of those games you play with a non-gamer. You know, those weirdos who sit for hours in front of the TV and passively watch what's being broadcast. We've just got to help those missing links evolve a little.
  3. A bad, bad game. It's a quiz show format that can't work as a game, but was made anyways.

    This game simply represents the show faithfully, and it’s fun to play. [Jan 2002, p.232]
  5. But despite Robinson’s remarks, oodles of atmosphere and a decent enough multiplayer mode, compared to Millionaire in the console quiz show stakes, it still manages to be the weakest link. Goodbye!

    It was quite the pleasant surprise. [Dec 2001, p.175]
  7. It's a great multiplayer game for parties, especially with those non-gamer types.

    The Weakest Link in video game form, fun in short bursts with friends or family but no real long term appeal.

    I was not a fan of the gameshow, but I do like this game. The gameplay is deeper than I expected even in single player. The questions are I was not a fan of the gameshow, but I do like this game. The gameplay is deeper than I expected even in single player. The questions are challenging and after a less than stellar round, if you vote way off base on the weakest link, then you're more apt to make the walk of shame. This is a bargain bin must for fans of trivia games and shows. Full Review »
