I bought edition 1 last year and reviewed it favourably, however put against this edition it really doesnt stand up. Everything feels slicker, the video, the ability to choose specialist subjects and even the menu's seem more polished. I'd like to think that the makers had been on this site and taken notice.

There was an issue with a limited amount of questions on version 1 and this has thankfully been resolved as this new game claims to have double the amount of questions. Although I personally didnt have an issue with questions in version 1 people that played it very regularly could definately feel a case of de ja vu.

I do recommend this for working out the grey matter, Millionaire games are usually good value and this one for me does seem a good edition to my collection.

having played this game for a couple of days now, i am completely frustrated with it. when it works, it's good, but when it starts to pick the wrong answer for you, it is bad, very bad. i have, on quite a few occassions now, picked an answer, using the stylus, only for the game to decide that i picked the answer either next to, or below, the one i had actually picked. i wouldn't mind so much if it had decided to pick the correct answer, but when it's the wrong answer, and you find out you had actually picked the correct answer, it does get extremely annoying. it's not until the later questions in the game (the last 2 for me) that it actually asks that infamous line 'is that your final answer?'. why couldn't it have had a system where you picked the answer, and then you had to re-touch the same answer to confirm that was your choice? it would save having to waste money and throw the game in the bin!!

i also felt the sound was bad, especially when mr tarrant was saying an 's' sound. it sounded rather harsh and like the sound was up full, even though it was on a low setting.

overall if the game worked properly, i wouldn't have a problem with it, as it is fun in short bursts, but with these problems i have mentioned, it's not that great at all...

We had high hopes for this game as my 11 year old son and I are avid viewers of the TV programme. In short, the sound quality is appalling, the graphics are poor, questions were beginning to be repeated within 3 days, the phone a friend people are useless (usually they don't even bother to offer an answer!) and I, as a reasonably intelligent 40 year old, found the questions on the Junior setting far too difficult. My son was so disappointed as it was an eagerly anticipated Christmas gift.

Great game to test your knowledge, otherwise the only use I had out of it was to set questions for the local pub quiz.

Millionaire is as near to the real thing as possible, with Chris Tarrant asking the qustions. Very good for adults and older children.I am still trying to win £million!!!

Received this as a present this morning and am loving it. Had the DVD's before but so good to be able to play this on the long journey to work.

This is a great game,but occasionally the DS picks up the wrong answer then you are history! Great to play with friends!

quite a boring game, but you can have some fun with it. Is inclined to repeat questions

Bought for my husband because he lost his PC one. The game is great and my husband loves it, but I find that Chris Tarrant's voice inbetween the games is a bit repetitive. Still as long as my husband is happy :-)

The format of the game is fine, but it constantly highlights the wrong choice having used the stylus to select another answer and effectively loses you the game. Damned annoying!
