Spin, Solve and Win on Your Wii

Now you and your whole family can spin the iconic wheel as contestants on America's favorite game show from the comfort of your own home as Wheel of Fortune finally comes to Wii. In this amazing re-creation, players take on the role of contestants battling for prizes and cash as they uncover letters in the show's familiar turn based Hangman style phrase puzzle format. Mirroring the TV show, the game features 1-3 player support, allowing the whole family to play, or for two players or even a single player to face AI opponents as they solve over 8,000 puzzles built into the game. Along with the standard puzzle format, the game features “commercial break” mini-games and show related trivia that add to the fun and diversify the gameplay action. New and established fans of the show will also be delighted to see that the game contains Wii style representations of host Pat Sajak and the world's most famous letter turner, Vanna White, both in standard studio attire, as well as themed outfits available when the game moves to in-game alternative locations, such as Hawaii. Combine all this with Wii Remote motion control functionality that lets players spin the wheel with a flick of the wrist and Wii Speak microphone capabilities (sold separately) that allow you to call out letters and solve the puzzles verbally, and you have an addictive video game Wheel of Fortune experience that truly does justice to the original TV game show.
