Wheel of Fortune Review
Overall - 8.5
Wheel of Fortune is a fun game show that would come on TV. I remember watching all the time with my family and trying to figure out what the word or phrase is. Making a game out of it should be expected a good game to play, but it seems to look boring on the NES version. It is just like Wheel of Fortune on TV. It plays very well and this is the only game I know that only has up to three players. I would play it with my family and for some reason, they would prefer this one than the one on the Nintendo 64 because it seemed more complicated than this game. I guess this makes the game interesting.
Graphics - 8
The graphics are good. What bothers me is the characters that you can pick. They look weird and some look like they are too stupid to be in the show. The effects are boring because it does not look like the actual TV show.
Sound - 8
The sound is good. I like the way it sounds, even though it sounds NES-like. The effects have no interests cause it is just a game show and I know that there is no sound effects on game shows, except for the wheel spinning.
Addictiveness - 7
I would play this often since I liked playing Wheel of Fortune, but not too much cause it can be annoying. This game is fun, but I would probably prefer playing something much better than the NES.
Story - N/A
There is no story in this game. It is a game show, so you just play the game and hope to be the winner. I guarantee you that it is a fun game show.
Depth - 6
There is not a lot of things in this game. The only thing you can do in this game is play up to three players, that is it. I would expect something like a section of what type of game to play in Wheel of Fortune, but no. There is things like buying vowels and solving the puzzle and choosing consonants in Wheel of Fortune if you did not know about it.
Difficulty - 6
I am not that good in Wheel of Fortune, but it still is a fun game to play. Some of the words or phrases I can know, but most of them are hard. That is basically everything about the game cause it is a game show and nothing can be hard except for the problem you need to solve.
Wrap Things Up...
Wheel of Fortune is once again a fun game show game to play. I recommend trying this game out if you have not already. It is very popular back in the old days. :)
