I'm a sort of fan of game shows, except that i don't really follow them on television. These were the kind of favourite program genres i've liked in my childhood, but since i don't live in the USA, i've never seen any Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, etc. episode in my life, even thought i heard of them and they looked really great.

If you're one of those people who spends their Wednesday evenings shouting things like 'A bird in the hand!' and 'King George, you witless morons!' then you're probably very strange. However if you do it whilst watching Wheel Of Fortune -previously hosted by the mildly annoying Nicky 'sacked from Radio l' Campbell and of late taken over by the extremely annoying Bradley 'devoid of charm and talent' Walsh - then it's understandable.
We've all done it at one time or another - shouted at the television whilst watching a gameshow where the contestants seem to have a combined IQ somewhere equivalent to a small tube of toothpaste. I know, in fairness, that it is a lot more difficult to answer questions when you're actually on the show in front of the cameras, as opposed to when you're munching your way through a microwave meal on the sofa at home. Still, it has to be said that Wheel Of Fortune contestants in particular do seem to be somewhat on the slow side, even compared to your average game show entrant (Fifteen To One notwithstanding - they're all mad geniuses).
You know the kind of thing. Host: 'Okay Sue, it's a three letter word, you know the first letter is D and the last G. The clue is 'Wags its tail and barks'. Now can you solve it?' Contestant: 'Okay Bradley, um... is it... um... is it... is it a cow?' Host: 'Ooh, ever so close Sue! The answer we were looking for was 'Dog', but that was a great guess! Don't go away, we'll be right back!'
I admit, when I heard that Wheel Of Fortune was being turned into an N64 game, I got quite excited, after all, who wouldn't want Jenny Powell, the stunning co-presenter and one redeeming feature of the show, chatting in Estuary English with them in the privacy of their own front room? Disappointingly though, Wheel Of Fortune the game is based on the American version of the show, and so instead of the gorgeous Jenny, we get the American female host, Vanna White.
And disappointment follows disappointment. Take the graphics for instance - never mind a Nintendo 64, they'd look more at home on a Commodore 64! Aside from a couple of short panning shots, the majority of this game is fairly flat, as if filmed with a static camera, which is visually fairly unexciting.
The contestants themselves are particularly awful. They have apparently been digitised, but then someone seems to have knocked the scanner out of focus, so they become faceless figures with no detail and less animation than the contestants on the TV show itself. If you've ever played Lethal Enforcers on the Sega Mega Drive, then you'll have some idea of what to expect.
The host herself, Vanna White, appears on screen from time to time in a box (as you do) and those sequences are a little more polished. FMV on the N64 - make the most of it! She also 'walks the board' when you select your letters, although the animation sequence is basically just her walking from one side of the screen to the other, while the letters magically turn by themselves.
The game, for those of you who don't already know, has two main parts; spinning the wheel, and trying to solve a word puzzle. When you spin the wheel, different segments with values representing amounts in dollars flash past your pointer, along with various bonuses and hazards such as free spin tokens, miss a turn and bankrupt segments. Once a value stops on your pointer (assuming it's not one of the hazards) you then have to guess a letter for the puzzle, in much the same way as if you were playing hangman. If the letter is present in the puzzle, you get the money marked by your pointer. If more than one of that letter is in the puzzle, you get the amount by the pointer multiplied by however many times the letter occurs. You then get a chance to either spin the wheel again, or to try and solve the puzzle.
I have to say that despite its simplicity (or perhaps because of it), I did find Wheel Of Fortune a lot of fun, particularly when playing against two human competitors. However, I've always liked word puzzles, and since that's what the game is about, if you don't like word puzzles then you won't like this.
I know that in America there are people who are obsessed with Wheel Of Fortune, who never miss a show, and who pride themselves on always getting the puzzles before the TV contestants, and I dare say there may be people who are the same over here. There's a word for you - it begins with 'S' and ends in 'D', and means 'the opposite of happy'. If you are one of those people, then you'll probably love this game. If you're not... well, it's a word puzzle game.
All in all, considering the import price, this game is only really value for money if you're a Wheel Of Fortune fanatic. Otherwise your money would be better spent getting a game that really utilises the N64's capabilities, and if you just fancy a word puzzle, then pop down to WH Smiths and get a whole book of them for about a quid.
