The questions on this game were WAY too easy. If you play against a real person, you don’t get to play the bonus round! What’s up with that???? While the graphics are decent, I’m very disappointed with this one. Wish I could get my money back.

So glad I rented, not bought. The questions were just plain ridiculous- not the least bit challenging. The single player mode is stupid- you don’t even get to hear the computer’s question, and the computer almost always misses the question. In the 2 player mode, X always starts the round, regardless of who won the previous round, thus making it virtually impossible for O to win because the questions are so easy that player 1 would have to be a child or really dumb in order to get them wrong, therefore guaranteeing that they will get 5 squares before player 2. There is also no bonus round in 2 player mode. VERY boring, VERY dumb. Don’t buy this- donate your money to a worthy cause instead- at least then it’s going to something worthwhile! I wish I could give this 0 stars, because I would.
I used to love to watch this show with my grandma and even though it is such a simple game, I enjoyed it. You play the game against an opponent (Computer-generated or friend) and you pick squares to answer a question. The middle square is one of the for celebrities – Kathy Griffin, Brad Garrett, Jeffrey Tambor, and Marin Mull – and the host is the actual show host, Tom Bergeron. When you click on the middle square you are taken to an actual clip of the Hollywood Squares show where the celebrity has answered the question – it is pretty neat how good of quality this is! You then agree or disagree which earns you the spot or gets awarded to your opponent. Each time you win a round, a new wardrobe item opens up to dress your character. The game goes really quick and while some of the questions are a little tough, I would say most are really easy! For example, one question asked about the lead actor in “Twilight” and the character said it was Robert Deniro, obviously I disagreed. Other questions ask where the United Nations headquarters are and the character said something crazy like Delaware! It is a very simple game and for fans of the show it is fun and something to take your mind off things! I do though wish the questions were a little tougher and there was more to what you win – dressing my avatar in the game isn’t something I really care to win. Overall, though the celebrity mini-clips are funny and it reminds me exactly of the tv show.
