  1. Other than totally lacking the "tension" of risking losing $500,000 to go for that million, it does a good job of capturing the gameplay and general feel of the game show.
  2. It'll definitely give you the closest experience to being on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire without actually being a contestant on TV.
  3. When is milking a franchise for all it's worth enough? How about when the franchise's 3rd edition comes out looking and feeling absolutley no different from it's second edition?
  4. The show already invades ABC several times and week. Playing the PSone version on top of that just might drive you over the edge.
  5. Sticks to the show fairly faithfully, but extremely limited options, the inability to skip the lengthy between-question animation, and horrendously slow load times suck out any potential fun you might have with this game.
  6. Regis’s few spunky chime-ins will severely disappoint his extremist fans, as well as nauseate everyone else with how much they sound like assembly-line verbal by-product. [Sept 2001, p.148]

    You can pretty much use a lifeline on every question: Log on to Google. Wonder why they let you pause the game. I got a million dollars and haven't touched it since. Full Review »
