Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is based on the wildly popular and Emmy-awarding winning TV game show of the same name that debuted in 1999 and has been in U.S. daily syndication since September 2002. "Is that your final answer?" has become a popular catch phrase in popular vocabulary. You take the hot seat in the all new Who Wants to be a Millionaire game. Win $1,000,000 by correctly answering 15 multiple choice questions, each worth an increasing amount of money. Just like on TV, players can seek help for the super stumper questions via lifelines like "Ask the Audience", "Double Dip" or "Phone a Friend". Can you stand the pressure, or will you walk away?

And the "Party Mode" where you play against up to 3 others completely fails, 20% of the time it "says" that you answered for example "D" when you very deliberately chose "A" with the 4-way rocker. It makes it more frustrating than its worth.
Compared to similar game show themed Wii Games, I would rate "Millionaire" above both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy simply because its easier for everyone to jump in and play a short game. Everyone answers every question (unlike in Jeopardy and Wheel, where you wait your turn to play) and each full game lasts 15-20 minutes.
There doesn't seem to be any scaling of question difficulty in multiplayer party mode. For example, the $100 questions seem equally difficult as the $500,000 questions. There are also no lifelines during party mode and you can miss questions and still stay in the game (you'll just drop down a dollar value level when you miss a question.)
In solo mode, you retain the original 3 lifelines (ask the audience, 50-50, phone a friend) and missing a single question will end the game. The questions seem to become increasingly difficult as you gain in dollar value levels.
I would highly recommend this if you are looking for something fun to pick up while entertaining guests or playing with your kids/family. It has a few shortcomings but overall, its good fun. B+
First, its the old version.
Second, it has weird steps to the million dollar question.
Third, the host literally puts you to sleep.
Forth, the "ask the audience" is wrong most of the time.
Fifth, it would be so nice if there was a way to start at a higher level than the first question, as the first few questions are bone headed easy.
And sixth, and the VERY most annoying part of this game is that the way they have it set up between the boring host talking, technical issues and there is no way to skip stuff you have heard a thousand times, it results in a mind-numbingly slow, slow game. It's insane. I literally threw the game away due to this. Uggg.
Don't buy it will put you to sleep, I promise!
