No one adds insult to injury like the host of The Weakest Link, and now this PlayStation game allows you to be insulted in a merciless British accent. Though everyone remembers the insults, this game doesn't skimp on the meat of the matter either, offering more than 100,000 questions and allowing up to seven players.

There are about 2 dozen contestants you can choose from, who are all poorly voiced and have canned sayings which get old quick during the games. The Weakest Link is an elimination style game that is made up of 6 rounds. The first round starts out 2 minutes and 30 seconds with each round taking 15 seconds off the clock. The host goes around in a randomly chosen order asking trivia questions and you can either bank the amount of cash totaled up so far or answer the question. If you're wrong or pass you lose the total amount of money queued.
For the video game the answers start out with one letter and as the timer goes down more letters are revealed. This is obviously easier and faster than typing in a full answer as that wouldn't be any fun. The trivia questions can be rather hard and range from science to sports so having multiple people in the room helps a lot. When the round is over each contestant votes off another and here's where the game becomes a little stale. The AI will automatically vote off the weakest link for the round which is annoying if it's you. This is the furthest from the game as the contestants don't know who's the strongest or weakest link for the round, but somehow the AI knows.
The game continues in this fashion with live action clips of the host rambling on pre-scripted sayings and jokes from the show. It's nice to see but after about an hour you start to see some repeat. Honestly, the only way to play this is with other people and the way too smart AI kind of ruins the game show feeling of the entire experience. It nails down the feeling of The Weakest Link perfectly, but you also have awful voice acting and a limited amount of content.
I would recommend anyone play this who was a fan of the show or wants a fun new trivia game to play. Even for the PS1 the graphics are quite nice and it captures the effects of the show. If you can look past the stiffness of it being a pre-set video game and awful voice acting then give it a go.
You can play alone, or with up to 6 additional players. The game has 24 different characters to choose from, all with different personalities. You can also choose your degree of difficulty (regular, easy, or junior!), and there's a marvelous "cheat" section, where you can raise or lower the frequency of a certain subject asked. (Entertainment buff? Minimalize the Science and Geography questions!). But don't be TOO smart... the other players will vote you right off the stage! Feel daring? Try the championship mode and go for millions! The graphics are decent and, with the exception of a couple minor details, the game matches the TV show perfectly. With 100,000 questions, those without a memory card can go several games before hitting a repeat question.
My suggestion? Play the game with 6 friends. You have to pass the controller, but it was one laugh-filled hilarious time at our last party. Even if you're playing alone, you'll still have a great time. Because, of course, there's always Anne to keep you company.
Until you hear those words, that is. "You ARE the Weakest Link. Goodbye!"
