Product Description This software is BRAND NEW. Packaging may differ slightly from the stock photo above. Please click on our logo above to see over 15,000 titles in stock. Amazon.com Review The first version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire was the third bestselling game of 1999 and continues to fly off store shelves, so a sequel was inevitable. Who Wants To Be a Millionaire: 2nd Edition gives fans 600 more questions and brilliantly captures the feel of the TV show. The only thing missing is the cash.
You're in the hot seat with more questions, more Regis, and more fun. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Second Edition is packed with 600 all-new questions, lifelines, and Regis banter that is sure to satisfy fans. The pressure is on--win a million or lose it all. Just try to keep your cool when Regis asks, "Is that your final answer?"See all Product description

On a CD there should be room for many thousands of questions. But the use of audio files for the "phone-a-friend" lifeline likely eats up a lot of the available space. If they were all authentic, some people might judge it worthwhile. But most of them seem to be the silly "psychic hotline" responses, and these are definitely not worth it.
At ..., it still makes sense for fans of the show to give this a shot -- just be aware that you'll only get a week or two of enjoyment out of it. If you want a larger database of questions, consider the board game at ..., which *does* have several thousand questions.
I had trouble. It wouldn't run and no live tech support is available on weekends, the website helped to identify the problem and downloaded the patch for Pentium 4 systems and it flew. Go to the website if you have any problems starting this game. The graphics are superb and Regis' funny demeanor and voice are there. I didn't mind reading the questions, speech takes an awful lot of disk space and there's enough speech anyway. I'm never good at the fastest finger question and am glad there is a 1 player option. The questions are just like the show, varied, with some I know and some I have to look up or ask someone; thank goodness for the pause feature! The music, look and ambience is almost exactly like the show and is fun whether you win or lose, with Regis' trash talk.
The negatives: Why the timer? If they don't have one in the game, they don't need one in the CD-ROM version! One person took over 50 minutes on the show on one question! Why should we be punished?!?! (Again, thank goodness for the pause feature!) There is no way to skip the lengthy introductory credits; we know who made the program, let us skip to the game like Hasbro does for their gameshow CD's! If you take too long putting in your name, the game will force one in; I was talking to someome at that point and the game put a name in! I had to start over, watching the annoyingly long intro credits! Sometimes Reege chatters too much between questions; I like him fine, but maybe a "chatter" setting should be implemented so if you're in a hurry to move the game along, you can. The "trash talk" is still fun.
These are very strong negatives, but this is a terrific game and the negatives detract only slightly, hence the 4 star rating. It is still a lot of fun once the game is going. Lastly, I mean no offense by saying this so please don't take this too seriously: you know you can't really win the million dollars. It's a CD-ROM game for the computer, already! Even Reege himself says so after you win the virtual million dollars! Here's a reminder for people disappointed in not winning real money: TAXES!!! This is just for fun, and that's exactly what this game is, a lot of fun!
It's true, the questions aren't repeated as much as before. The problem is, now they're MUCH harder! It's impossible to get anything higher than $16,000 now! And since the questions don't repeat, you'll never get to the top!
But what's the worst part? That's the ONLY CHANGE that was made to this game. NOTHING ELSE!!!!! It's as if the first game had no problems whatsoever! Regis is STILL appallingly rude and impatient, the "Fastest Finger" mode STILL doesn't let you put the four answers in order, the game STILL quits if you take too long to do things, you STILL can't skip the introduction sequence, the Phone-a-friend lifeline is STILL worthless, there's STILL no option to make the games easier or harder, you STILL only get instructions once, and there's STILL no option to use the mouse! Regis even says EXACTLY the same stuff as before!
I bought the game out of total curiosity, just to see if this game was really any better than the first. As it turns out, it is virtually the EXACT SAME GAME. It has all the problems of the first, except for one which was replaced by another one!
This game has not been improved one bit over the first. The makers didn't even try to improve it. This game displays total laziness and lack of creativity. It's not worth one second of your time.
