  • Summary: Making its high-definition debut, Wheel of Fortune brings the fun and excitement of TV's No. 1 syndicated game show to life in this re-creation video game for the Wii and Nintendo DS. Voiced by show hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White, the game will follow the format of the show by putting up to three players at the wheel to solve thousands of word puzzles to win virtual cash prizes. With the show hosts' avatars cheering contestants on, players can insert their own favorite Mii character to represent them within the game. Contestants can play commercial break mini-games for an enhanced gameplay experience. As players work their way up proving their puzzle solving skills, they can unlock new sets and props, as well as customization options for their Mii character. Expand

    I bought this game on demand for $20 along with jeopardy for $30. Both games are very well done giving the player the feeling of actually playing the TV game itself. I honestly didn't have high hopes for the Wheel of fortune game thinking it would be just like the older cheesy pc version released years ago. I was presently surprised that this game (and jeopardy) are really fun to play. My girlfriend and I play both just about every night (worth getting a 2nd controller). I really like the fact that you can press A to skip through a lot of dialog even though the voices sound real enough to give you that feeling of actually being there. It was also very easy to setup for 2 players using 2 remotes. buzzing in before the other player seems accurate even though the timing can be tricky. There are also a few mini games thrown in both games to give it a little variety. I haven't tried online play so I can't comment on that. I can say I definitely feel like I got my money's worth from both games since I've been playing one or the other almost every night for the last week or so. They both just feel like well polished games that are more fun playing than watching it on tv. You also start to understand the strategies used by real players on tv. Expand
