All thins considered, this is a fun game. After all, it's really hard to screw up a video game based on a real-life game show. While not compelling in a long-term session, Wheel of Fortune is definitely one of those "rainy day" computer games devoted to good, clean and wholesome family fun.
With over 2000 puzzles, Wheel of Fortune does promise a lot of variety. But, in the end, it's only going to offer lasting fun to hardcore fans of the gameshow ... you know, the ones with lots of piercings and tats of Vanna on their butts.
But the worst part of Wheel of Fortune was the lack of reward. This is a game where the only reward is winning money and prizes. Imagining money and prizes is just not the same. Even watching other real live people win money and prizes on TV was better than imagining how I would spend my imaginary $50,000 while driving my imaginary Land Rover. Another couple of games, and I'm cracking my computer case to join Computer Player 1 on her African ballooning safari.

cEven more annoying is the
game’s unseen timer. Hesitate too long, and play unceremoniously (and unapologetically) moves on to the next player. With three people crowded around a PC, it’s too easy to get burned by this “feature.” Overall, this game is better than the last PC WHEEL, but you’re better off with JEOPARDY or almost any of the YOU DON’T KNOW JACK games.
