Who Wants To Be A Millionaire UK Edition (c) Hothouse / Eidos


"Is that your final answer?! Well, It is, And usually, its wrong :). Playing some of the "Millionaire" games, I have found this one to be most Intriguing and most difficult to play. I presume that do to the deep and well established culture the British have, it has more of an intellectual feel to it, On the first question, I (And many members of the family :P) had to chip in to actually know the right answer! It is somewhat History and Culturally related, it concerns the British, You could say that this game is truly targeted at the English consumer and not towards the world consumer.

Gameplay 6/10:

I'd say its more or less the usual, no special effects or anything, the only thing that I adore about the game is the British Accent, The Speech in the game is well done, you could actually try and believe that this is the real thing. One really bad thing about this game is, That even on a PIII 500MHZ, the loading time is Too much (Even though it takes about 10 seconds or slightly more), Its still annoying (very), And the Introduction (Spoken by the game show host) is more than repetitive, its aggravating. Overall, Gameplay is well done, Tweaking had to be made before releasing this game, but still, its not that bad.

Graphics 5/10:

The usual 2D graphics, images are 3D rendered ones but still images, Nothing special about them, but their not some cheaply done graphics ether, So, its quite safe to say that the graphics do what is needed to be done.

Audio 8/10:

I think that this is the best part of the game, The audio is simply outstanding, You actually FEEL your playing (At least for the first 4-5 times) the real thing, Even the Suspension is there. The Accent is one hell of a reason to get this release, very nice to hear the British accent every once and awhile...

Overall 6/10:

I'd recommend this to anyone willing to play the Millionaire Over And Over and Over and Over... (You get the point) without actually winning any money. So, if you like this kind of games, I must say that the questions are Classy, very hard indeed (compared to someone that didn't experience the British culture), but overall One Thumb up... :P
