Millionaire 2nd Edition is a good representation of the TV show, but how does it hold up as a game? It's a pretty good trivia game, but there are many things I thought could have been improved. The interface is weak, and the game play is limited. There are many people who would buy this game simply because they are either huge Regis fans or the TV show's fans. Others might stay away from it simply because of the fact that Regis is the host of the game. Nevertheless, I believe that Millionaire 2nd Edition is more of a way to market the show than to serve as a genuine trivia game.
In the end, the mark of a good game is that you want to play until it drives you insane. On that front, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire succeeds in a big way.
I am impressed, however, with the depth of the game as there are tons of questions and even more sound bytes. Enthusiasts of the game will be able to play for quite some time. Furthermore, adding to the fun is the leader board (to check overall or nightly standings) and multi-player options, enabling you to play a "fastest finger" game right in your own living room.
But aside from a few nice touches, Millionaire falls flat. If multiple players want to take on Regis, for example, they have to crowd around the keyboard. And although the game's graphics nicely re-create Millionaire's futuristic set, the empty chairs become a little boring. As a result, Millionaire doesn't hold up well with repeated play
Millionaire 2 is not a bad game, but falls a little short of an unreserved recommendation. The difficulty of its questions (both too easy and hard at inappropriate times), sporadic and undecipherable asking of whether something is your final answer, and its horrible excuse for a multiplayer game, makes Millionaire a little less than a good game. Even if it’s the case in reality, a game like this shouldn’t feel like it was rushed out the door, and that’s what these problems seem to indicate.
