Who wants to beat up a millionaire? Didn’t think so. Who wants to make fun of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? That’s more like it. Simon & Schuster Interactive have developed a reputation for themselves as the comedians of the video game industry. This latest offering is a quiz game parodying the extremely successful international hit WWTBAM.

Nearly every aspect of the TV show is picked on from the host’s mannerisms and catchphrases to the dramatic lighting and music. There is a lot to pick at but ultimately we find it hard to laugh at a television show and a game making so much money. Anyway, it’s time to let your hair down and enjoy yourself.

Who Wants To Beat Up A Millionaire is a game for up to four people. The aim of the game differs from the format of the T.V show in one main comical way. You are not trying to win money, but trying to win the chance to beat up a virtual millionaire. There are special weapons on offer to help dispense with the rich people. Don’t attack the same area over and over because they will learn to defend themselves.

Overall, the quality of this title is not up to much, but it does make you laugh from time to time and that’s always a good thing. The questions are varied in topic and there are enough of them to make for a varied game. If you like parody games, Who Wants To Beat Up A Millionaire is a good example.
