That's not to say there aren't genuine improvements. For starters, the oft-criticised lethargic pace of the original has been speeded up, and the improved user interface makes the game even simpler to use. Furthermore, there are over 1000 new questions to keep you taxed (although younger players may still be better off opting for its sister title, Who Wants To Be a Millionaire: Junior).
But essentially, this is still the same game, with the same flaws and assets of the first: the questions loop around too quickly, for instance. Yet the look and feel of the game still perfectly captures the essence of the TV show... even if they still don't give you any real money at the end of it.
Who Wants To Be a Millionaire: 2nd Edition is a reliable, entertaining game, ideal fodder for the family although hardly likely to satiate the appetite of the cutting-edge gamer. If you enjoyed the original though, you'll find that this latest release is money well spent. --Simon Brew
Why? Because it doesn't try and be too clever, all it tries to do is capture the fun of the show. Many more questions than the (vastly) over-rated original.
The only problems are (i) it gets boring on your own and (ii) you never actually win a million!
