The game is based on the hit TV quiz show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? PC and Console games players can now experience for themselves the excitement and tension of the TV show as they try and win one million virtual pounds. The UK version of the game features audio clips of the TV show's host Chris Tarrant, who will be asking the questions, giving the answers, and of course, uttering the famous line, "Is that your final answer?"; other localized versions have different hosts/voices, in addition to using questions suitable for each country.
Particularly notable is that this title made UK chart history by becoming the first ever title to top the All Format, PlayStation, PC and Dreamcast charts in the same week, according to an Eidos press release.
