You've watched the cheesy Chris Tarrant helmed quiz show
Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and if you're anything like the staff here they you'll have shouted your answers at the television on numerous occasions. You now have the chance to
experience the next best thing to sitting in the studio with Tarrant with this fully multi-player DVD game...

In this 2nd edition you can play with up to four friends and family members, or in teams, in a head-to-head race for the top prize. All the features of the show are here in this brand new edition - 50:50, Ask The Audience and Phone-A-Friend, as well as a different set of all-new questions every time you play.

Your DVD player remote control is all you need to play this challenging interactive game, and then you are just 15 correct answers away from a virtual one million pounds! Reach the virtual million mark and you can enter the prize draw to win a fantastic holiday for 4 to Universal Mediterranea in Spain.

Although, to be honest, as you have as long as you like for each question, it's not too difficult to go onto the Internet and find the answers - but that would be cheating now, wouldn't it.

Now is it me, or does everyone want to smash Chris Tarrant's face in with a cricket bat? This feeling grew stronger in me after playing this game for about 20 minutes. Why? Well, the king of brie, the master of edam, the champion of gorgonzola manages to look incredibly weird every time he appears on the screen. After he has finished talking the DVD skips to the next section and we are rewarded with a freeze frame image of Chris (camembert) Tarrant - who looks like he is about to fall asleep - mind you, if you look closely, you can see his fake tan is starting to melt.

There is no escaping the fact that this game is incredibly addictive though, and very entertaining. We did notice that a few of the question did seem to be repeated a few times, and that your Phone-A-Friend interactive mates are a bit simple, but other than that we couldn't fault this release.

If you like the TV series then you'll love this game.

...and yes. That is my final mark (sigh).
