I loved this game when it was on television and this PC version brought back the fun and nostalgia of those golden years when game shows ruled the TV. Even if you have not seen the television version, you will enjoy the game just as much. It is one of those games, which can be played by family members as well as a party group. It is fast paced, well done, and never a dull moment. With that said, I will end this review and head on over to the pyramid and try and win that 100,000. Okay, maybe the money is not real, but the fun sure is!

Overall, The $100,00 Pyramid™ can be an entertaining game to play. The graphics and sound really bring out the game show environment. There are many hours of gameplay available before you start to repeat pyramids. The only drawback to the game is that you need to have good typing and spelling skills if you want to be successful, if not you'll easily get frustrated with the game.
If you're a fan of the classic TV game show, The $100,000 Pyramid is not to be missed. It's a great party game, much like You Don't Know Jack, but with much more interaction. With outstanding sound, competent graphics, and accurate gameplay, this replication of the word association game of the Eighties is a great effort, and definitely worth the price tag. I knew those Egyptians were on to something.
All in all, $100,000 Pyramid is a good diversion for a few plays and one of the better game show titles we've played. If it weren't for the disserted theme song and the inability to see the words and categories you've missed, we'd rate this much higher. But as is, it's just good to suck up a few minutes of your spare time.

Overall, I enjoy playing this game as it is fast-paced, entertaining, and I can play successfully even if I’m having a blonde moment. I can complete a round in less than 5 minutes and can save and quit or I can continue round after round for as long as I like. I really don’t mind the repetition as they throw in enough new questions that I can’t always anticipate what the answers will be – and if I do, that just means I can get that much closer to the $100,000 level, something I have yet to do but that isn’t from lack of trying.
With four players, The $100,000 Pyramid is a light but entertaining diversion. But if you don't plan on having this many contestants at a time, you'd be well advised to steer clear of Pyramid and pick up the latest copy of You Don't Know Jack instead.
