The extra time given to the Euro release has given the developers the chance to correct many of the criticisms rightly mentioned about the USA version of the game. Now that up to 4 players can compete together either as a team, or against each other, it really does put this miles ahead of the traditional board game version that has been on sale since last Christmas - especially when using a multi-tap as you can all have a go at those 'fastest finger' questions. Added to this is the increased interaction between the presenter and the players - including those dramatic pauses where you are waiting to find out if you answered correctly. The 'phone a friend' option has also been brilliantly implemented with sound samples of real people giving you their verdict on the answer.

I was very excited about Who Wants To Be A Millionaire when I heard it was coming. Hearing Sony was doing it was even more exciting since I know they are usually all about quality. However this version is not what I, nor other fans, would want it to be. Very disappointing.

Als absoluter Fan der Sendung (noch keine Folge verpasst!) bin ich von der PlayStation-Fassung doch etwas enttäuscht. Abegdrehte Fragen wie „Was für ein Baum ist auf der Flagge des Libanons zu sehen?“, „Wo findet man die Lambda-Draht?“ oder „Wie heißt der englische Original-Titel des Films Der unsichtbare Dritte?“ konnte man ja als Minimum erwarten, die sterile Präsentation ging dagegen ziemlich in die Hose. Und Günther Jauch durch einen namenlosen Sprecher zu ersetzen, stellt einen echten Frevel dar. Dann doch lieber als Brettspiel oder umsonst bei

Une adaptation fidèle à l'émission dont elle est inspirée et qui pourra procurer un bon divertissement à plusieurs, en tout cas lors des premières parties, même si l'intérêt ludique du soft n'est pas flagrant. Mais au vu du succès qu'à remporté le jeu outre-atlantique, il y a fort à parier que ce titre rencontre un accueil tout aussi chaleureux en France.

Au final, Qui veut gagner des millions est un jeu de quizz plutôt réussi et très fidèle à l'ambiance qui peut régner sur le plateau de l'émission. Les menus sont sobres et clairs, la voix de Jean-Pierre Foucault sonne juste et tous les ingrédients sont là pour se croire à la télé. Reste que le concept est cependant assez limité, surtout en solo, et que les questions peuvent se répéter au bout d'une vingtaine de parties. Sympathique pour une partie de temps en temps en famille ou entre amis... mais un peu cher tout de même.

This game will be popular over the Christmas season, you can be assured of it, and you can also bet that a lot of families are going to feel ripped off at paying full-price for a product that only offers the limited appeal of a budget title. It's alright for a laugh when you start off, but come a couple of weeks and you'll have soon forgotten about it.

Ironically, the main problem with Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is that it doesn't really cater itself well to being a videogame. You can have a lot more fun by just watching the TV show. Even from a mainstream gamer perspective, there just isn't that much enjoyment or long-lasting appeal here. It's not like you're actually going to win any money by answering these questions, so why bother? Do something more productive with for time, like perfecting that Regin Philbin impersonation.
