Fun, but lacking
on September 1, 2011
As a fan of game shows in general, I love getting my hands on home versions, especially when they're video games. I own both versions of Price on the Wii and DS, as well as Press Your Luck, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy!, and Hollywood Squares on the Wii. For Plug and Play games like this one I've got 1 vs. 100 and Wheel of Fortune also in my grasp.
Here's the problem with Price is Right as a Plug and Play game. Without any licensed products it is impossible to tell the high-end items from the low-end. Playing a game for a generically described car, with a make that sounds vaguely like a real brand, is very disappointing and also quite difficult.
It's still a fun recreation of america's longest running game show, but it suffers from its lack of licensure.
If you're a die-hard fan, like I am, I say pick it up, otherwise stick to the Wii, DS, or iPhone versions that feature actual products
