1.0 out of 5 stars Family Mis-Fortunes 15 Jan 2006
By A Customer
This is a woeful attempt at a DVD game. I own a few DVD games and it was painful to play this game once. The graphics can easily be beaten by the 48k spectrum I had nearly 20 years ago and the gameplay is slow and boring. Save your money and buy something else!!

1.0 out of 5 stars AWFUL 12 Nov 2006
I am in full agreement with others reviewers that the Interactive DVD Game of the Family Fortunes is awful. The interactive game lacks the realism of the actual game televised on TV. Where is Les Dennis? He host this show for over 10 years. We get some unknown voice. Who the hell is he? Playing on DVD fails to reflect the real experience of playing family fortunes, which affects your enjoyment. When you are watching the show on TV, your expectations are high of the game, but in this case it is a total blunder. If you play it on a conventional game set, it is comparatively much better as opposed to an interactive DVD version. It took me a while to get grips with the game, which I struggled and was forced to give up at one stage. Eventually, I did, but bitterly dissapointed. DO YOURSELF FAVOUR AVOID BUYING THIS GAME.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish 26 Jun 2006
By AquaViola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
It is an interactive as a book. And you are forced to play the game in a particular way which is not mirrored in the TV show.

In the Big Money round, you have to guess the top answers - no marks for second answers.

Basically, a book of Family Fortunes would be much better than this. They have forgotten to put something in this DVD - fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars Family Disappointment 11 Jan 2006
By Jaz
It is not possible to play the game as in the TV version from this DVD, as the person playing the presenter does not get to know the answers in advance, this resulted in games where neither group of players got any of the answers correct, but could not continue to play as the correct answers had already appeared on the screen. In addition there was no uh-uh when this was advertised on the box as a feature.
If you like to play family fortunes buy the board game. This contains a wonderful little buzzer that does uh-uh perfectly. Because the presenter is aware of the answers they can give clues to some of the more bizarre questions and can speed the game up or delay pressing the uh-uh buzzer which we found gave lots of laughs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money 19 April 2006
By Simon
I'd like to state that if you buy an interactive DVD there should be some motivation to playing it and then, in turn, continuing to play it thereafter. With similar titles they usually involve the associated celebrity, the correct sound effects/music and should roughly follow the game play of the original TV show.

This has NONE of that.

No Les Dennis, no famous "Our survey said "eh ehhh" " sound for getting the wrong answer and the game play is simply bizarre. I mean - what kind of "DVD" game is it when you have to write down your answers on card with pens which weren't even provided??? With hindsight it would be difficult to do the TV show justice but I would have thought that with today's DVD technology it could be more than possible.

Very disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling 9 Jan 2006
This game is terrible - and is just looking to cash into the Christmas market of people looking for something to play rather than watch eight episodes of Eastenders on Christmnas Day and Boxing Day.
I've chucked mine already. We played it once, and then loaded it up the second time and had already seen the first 3 questions.

How disappointed am I? My arms can't stretch far enough.

Expecting a gimmick-for-gimmick, perfect depiction of the classic gameshow, from the 'ehh-uhhs', to the familiar music, to even a snifter of barely ONE of the show's hosts (Bob Monkhouse, Max Bygraves, Les Dennis, Andy Collins, any of them would have sufficed), I was kicked firmly in the goolies and told to stop expecting so much.

Instead of a game which at least has some connection to the show it's representing, you get a hurried, cheaply-made composition of unfamiliar tunes, barely interactive gameplay (pressing 'select' to reveal answers after you've written them down, with a pencil you supposedly receive with the DVD yet don't) and the undying stench of 'cheap cash-in' lingering all the way through. It didn't even take particularly long to finish one game ~ the premise is there, the execution is not.

I swapped this DVD up the day after buying it for interactive Telly Addicts, which suffice to say has satisfied me far more than this cheap shambles ever could've done. If you still haven't been put off getting it, read all the other reviews. If, after that, you STILL want to experience Interactive Family Fortunes, please RENT rather than BUY ~ I don't want anyone else making the same mistake it seems so many of us have already made.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn 29 Dec 2006
By Helen
On the case it says 'Featuring the famous uh-uh wrong answer sound'. Where is it on the game? Never heard it once. I am very suprised this company that made the DVD have not been fined for breaking Sales of Goods Act. The uh-uh noise is one of the top 5 tv noises. Plus having a DVD game where need to keep your own score is pathetic. Could have ramdonised the actual rounds - not a game as it appears. You know which questions will come on next. Bore me.
