The Price is Right
I love this game.
My husband bought this game for my birthday in Nov. I play this game every night before I go to bed, kind of like a destresser. I love it. It is a challenging and fun game. Without it going over the top like some games. I would recommend this game to any that loves the Price Is Right game show. Stick with the age recommendation for this game. Some children will not understand some of the pricing games. I personal have not had any repeats on merchandise showing on the game. It would have be great if you could have hooked up with other DS systems and played against each other. That is the only thing that I would have changed. You can play up to four people, but the down side is that you have to pass the system around to each player. It would have been cool if my daughter and I could have played against each other like we do in some of the Mario games. Other than this, the game is GREAT. I would have purchased it if my husband had not given it to me.
Do not buy this game! I repeat, DO NOT buy this game
Picked this one up thinking it would be a fun family game, but I was extremely disappointed. Oh my god, where do I start? First of all the graphics are some of the worst I have seen yet on the wii. You only get so many characters to choose from and you can't use your mii. The controls are very simple, a one year old could play this game. Now back to the graphics, the game gets jittery when you spin the wheel, the prices on the products are small, blurry and hard to read and the overall feel of the game is terrible. To me it feels like this game was thrown together in a few hours. I still can't believe I spent ** dollars on this game. I have played some good Ubisoft games in the past but this one makes me wonder if making a quick buck was more important than making a good game. Even if you are a die hard fan of the show, you will be very disappointed if you waste ** dollars in this game.
I could Just CRY
Well, I guess that I read wrongly because I remember quite a while back while this game was still in development that we would have the ability to choose between either Bob Barker or Drew Carey, Well there is no choice. I played four rounds of the game the only time I made it to the showcase is when I was playing with 2 other family members. I saw products repeat themselves in the 4 games that I did play so I am already memorizing the prices. Over all do I think that this game is worth *edit*? NO, I don't and I would HIGHLY suggest that if you are thinking about purchasing it that you go and rent it first, or wait a few more weeks because it will be on the *edit* shelf at Gamestop in a matter of no time. Really sad actually. The mini games are fun though so maybe, if you just really need to get some urge to play a version of PLINKO out of your system... would I even CONSIDER buying this game.
Family Fun? Come On Down!!
I love this game. My whole family loves this game. Sure the character choices are cheesy, but funny! The animation isn't world class but so what! YOU are the ones really playing. I don't really care if my on screen character claps like a seal on Prozac, we are having fun! Everyone gets to play, its fast moving, fun, and I'm amazed at the HUGE selection of pricing games they have! I am sure they do not have them all, but so far i cannot think of one game I like that they do not have. Anyone can play its a great party game, it doesn't require a lot of concentration and it really DOES have the look and feel of the real game, and everyone comes away smiling win or lose!! Trust me, in a highly competitive family like mine, that's a miracle in itself! Looking for some Holiday Family fun? Look no further! This game will leave you relaxed and giggling and wanting MORE!
I was very excited to get this game, I am a huge Price is Right fan. Unfortunately, I was also very disappointed. It was okay for the first time playing, but it got old after that. I couldn't get the excitement out of it after the first time playing. The graphics on it were okay. And the games were pretty much realistic. I did like the fact that the prizes were modern everyday items. The kids had a hard time with the mini games though, but again they are kids and don't really have a concept on actual prices of big ticket items like cars. We all really enjoy party games and try to get all of them. But us adults just found it boring and repetitive the second time around. So sad to say it was one I had to return. And I am usually pretty good at reading reviews and stuff before buying so I don't get so disappointed. I didn't do that for this game. Bummer!
Please don't make me come on down!
Wow, I was so excited when I saw this game was coming out and I even pre-ordered months in advance. For the most part I am very disappointed. I don't want to be though, I love price is right! The game itself it fun for about an hour and then it becomes boring. As most wii games, they just collect dust. This is not a fun game to play by yourself over and over again. I just wish it would have had a little more depth and I was hoping to see a host of some sorts. The prize videos are cool because it's actually footage but other than that. The players are happy go lucky and its hard to tell what's going on. A person gets about what 5 chances to bid correctly or else the game is over? I guess that makes sense it a way, because it can't go on forever and ever. I just wish there was more to do. One other positive thing, is the games are actually fun to play.
It’s about time someone created a video game out of my all time favorite game show. And not just any game show video game. This one actually translates to the video game world well. The controls for the Wii seem a natural fit for some of the games (spinning the wheel! I’ve always wanted to spin the wheel! JOY!). Playing with 3 other people is a good time. This is a good party game which can also be thoroughly enjoyed by yourself as well. Most games I’ve played are either good single player experiences or good multiplayer experiences. This one has found that balance between the two. It doesn’t matter how you choose to play it, you’re going to have a good time if you are a Price is Right fan. The real joy of this game lies in its authenticity, from the announcer to the audio this is geared to be a complete recreation of the game show experience.
Not what I expected!
I am a fan of the show, so when I saw that a Price is Right game was coming out for the Wii, I was really excited. I expected it to be a fun family game that I would enjoy with my husband and kids. What a disappointment. There are only a few "contestants" to choose from, and most of them were a bit bizarre looking (I was so hoping that we would get to use our Miis for this game). The games are very similar to the ones on the show, but the controls were mostly point and push "A", or pushing up and down on the control pad. I expected it to be more interactive. Even spinning the big wheel, if you just push and release the "A" button, it spins. Sure, some of the games were fun to play (plinko was fun), and there might be some folks out there that really enjoy this game. For me, though, it was just not at all what I expected.
This game is just like the game show - makes sense. If you have ever watched the game show you know that the prices are all over the board and so when playing the game, expect to get a lot of prices wrong. This wouldn't be so bad if it quickly changed to a new game, but instead it takes FOREVER to load after each activity so I was so irritated with losing so many times and then waiting around for the game to load, that I just took it back. If you're a die hard for Price is Right, then you may enjoy this. I mean, you do get to play Plunko! But if you are impatient like me and hate to sit there while mediocre graphics take forever to load, you may want to give it a miss.
This sounds like it could be a lot of fun, but what do you do with the money you win on the game? it would be awesome if you could win WII points, that would be flippin' sweet, and i love watching the show, it would be even better if i could actualy be on the show, but this is the closest i will probably ever get, so sweet, i think i will test this game out.
