  1. 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.”

    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.
  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.

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. Save yourself the trouble and just say "No Deal".

    Just as bad as the TV show...if not worse. [Issue#17, p.92]

    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.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

    Oh my gosh. I would have given this game a 0.5 rating, but I didn't get it out of a $1.99 sale bin. I paid $15 bucks for it! The thrill Oh my gosh. I would have given this game a 0.5 rating, but I didn't get it out of a $1.99 sale bin. I paid $15 bucks for it! The thrill was gone as soon as Howie with unusually large monster hands started talking. If you must play this game, borrow it from a friend who was suckered into buying it. Worse game I own. Expand

    Deal or No Deal: That is the question. No Deal: That is the answer. This game shouldn't have been thought of. I've heard of Deal or No Deal: That is the question. No Deal: That is the answer. This game shouldn't have been thought of. I've heard of companies releasing lotsa crappy games on the Wii and DS, sometimes based off a TV show, typically a baby's show like the abysmal Dora the Explorer, but this just the cake for the worst TV show-based game. The concept doesn't even help: it's about a shitty game show where you pick briefcases with low numbers, no skill at all, it's just luck. Terrible show, terrible game. Expand
