    Why does the NFO show an ASCII picture of Kim Jong-il?

    This game has to be the best game ever to come to the DS.

    Quality in games is really going up near the end, eh?

    I know you're sarcastic, but the new Golden Sun and Sonic Colors are pretty good DS games that came out late this year... As for WoF, I haven't tried this yet but I might just to see how bad it is. After "Deal or No Deal" for the DS (look up the reviews), I've lost faith in most games based off of game shows.

    TBH, Deal or no Deal is the worst game show I've seen in my life. It takes no skill other than dumb luck, and its retarded how the ugly host tries to make people think they have the 500k case and the moron contestants actually act like they do, when the reality is that your chances of picking it is 1 in 26 no matter how many you eliminate, and so its just a pure luck game of trying to squeeze as much cash out of the low balling banker who knows your case is a garbage one.

    Wheel of fortune on the other hand actually requires some skill, but also requires a certain amount of luck to make it more interesting.

    Lack of AIDS infested cum from a black man makes this suck.

    DoND's main draw is the gambling element. If the contestant takes the banker's offer and they have the million dollar case, it's the damn contestant's fault that they lost money, not luck.

    And Wheel of Fortune doesn't reward for the skill. If you can solve the puzzle right away, you barely get any bonus for doing so (even if it takes a lot of skill to do so). The money-making part is mostly about chance with the wheel.

    How about the 3 toss-up rounds? Those are worth $6000 combined. Can't forget the prize puzzle round & bonus solutions either, and obviously the bonus round, which takes at least some skill imo.

    What gambling element? There is a less than 4% chance that he has the case NO MATTER HOW MANY ARE REMOVED. It can be assumed that he doesn't have the case, and therefore all he is doing is hoping he doesnt pick the cases with the high amounts of money and trying to get as much as possible from the banker.

    Wheel of Fortune requires both skill and luck. Sure, you could solve right away, but it is highly unlikely. It still requires skill to solve the puzzle, but an added element of luck makes the game more unpredictable and exciting.
