Chris Tarrant’s 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' game show has become one of the most watched TV shows in recent years. Thousands upon thousands of eager hopefuls have phoned in trying to get their chance to win a million pounds. Those who didn’t succeed can now live in their own illusionary world and win a virtual million pounds in this PC version of the game.

Developers Hothouse and publishers Eidos have gone for a very authentic feel, in an attempt to recreate the atmospheric qualities of the TV show. Chris Tarrant’s voice is featured, complete with the annoying ‘Are you sure?’ question, placing you into an unnecessary dilemma over which answer to choose. A virtual studio has been created, setting the location and environments of the game. Also, the official and very dramatic music of the series has been included on the disc. Those of you concerned about repeated questions making an appearance will have to play the game for quite some time so see them, since there are over 1000 questions in the game’s database.

As atmospheric as the game might be, remember, you are in a virtual world, and everything you win is a fantasy. It’s not real.
