Mit Wer Wird Millionär 2. Edition veröffentlicht EIDOS Interactive endlich den legitimen und langerwarteten Nachfolger des erfolgreichen Quiz-Games Wer Wird Millionär. Über 750.000 Quiz-Begeisterte holten sich bereits den ersten Teil der 1:1 Umsetzung der wohl beliebtesten deutschen Quiz-Show auf den PC und die PlayStation. Die zweite Edition wurde nun vollkommen überarbeitet und bietet den Fans nicht nur über 1000 neue und exklusive Fragen, sondern auch viele neue Features.

But people will soon discover that this game, like its PC counterpart, moves at a snail's pace and the questions often repeat - so often in fact, that by the third day of playing, about half the question in a run were repeats. Even with its drawbacks Millionaire is fun; just don't expect too much.

In the end, all computerized trivia games come down to one thing: the number of questions. Who Wants to be A Millionaire doesn't have a terribly large bank of questions to choose from, and you'll probably start to recognize a few questions after only three or four sessions.

Considering that no matter how smart you really are, you won't actually win anything except for the nod of approval from silent and angry Player 2. In that case may we recommend playing You Don't Know Jack, also developed by JellyVision, which has better questions, more life and is a great party game to play with a few people. WWTBAM may be a great show, but it just doesn't translate well to the home. Honestly though, I would have been a little more lenient with the PSX version if the price had been $20.00. If you are reading this, you obviously own a computer, so save some cash and buy the PC version. As for this game, rental only.

Une seconde édition qui n'a d'autre raison d'être que de permettre à l'éditeur d'engendrer des bénéfices faciles sur le dos du grand public forcément attiré par le nom du jeu. L'ajout du millier de questions inédites ne justifie en rien l'achat de cette nouvelle mouture.

Where Hasbro and a few other game companies have mastered the art of transferring tried and true board games and family entertainment games into video games by adding spicy animations and an affable interface (see Monopoly or Risk), Buena Vista (Disney) has merely pasted trivia questions onto a rudimentary, bare boner graphics display accompanied by that trademark dramatic trill and gothic elevator music that has no business on my PSX… the GameBoy, maybe… a free Java based web site, sure. But $40 for a clunky trivia game? On the damn-near-obsolete PlayStation? Who wants to be an idiot?
