And so one of the biggest-selling games of recent times returns to our screens, complete with more questions, more improvements and more Chris Tarrant. Yup, Who Wants To Be a Millionaire: 2nd Edition knows it's on to a winning formula, and wisely does little to disrupt it.
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!
This is not the case with the 1st edition which I also have.
The game runs OK though and is slightly more relistic than 1st edition due to audience being seen.
Although behind the scenes this games is still the same and nothing much has changed other than the questions which im sure every one will memorise after a few long spent hours on the game.
Fairly addictive until you win the million, after that the question as with the last game occurs 'what now, i won a million but what have i really gained?????'
In a few words better but still not my cup of tea.

This is a great game when it worked, for me it only worked once. it says to install an old version of flash player and doesn't do anything after that. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Andrew

A fabulous game that is very true to the TV show, using Chris Tarrant's voice and the music from the show, it makes you feel as if you were actually there! Read morePublished on 9 Nov. 2011 by Puzzle crazy
