Based on the hit BBC (and brief-hit NBC) game show comes the video game version with ridiculous quips from Anne Robinson.

"Who here has passed their sell-by date? Who's been sitting on the shelf for too long? Is there someone here who needs to head for the checkout?"

DUMMY.DAT

DUMMY.DAT in the PlayStation version is a video from the French version of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.

Regional Differences

Quite a few changes were made for the game's US release, primarily to match the NBC version airing at the time (which Anne also hosted).

Hmmm...
To do:
  • A lot more regional differences, including but not limited to:
    • The change in announcer from Jon Briggs to John Cramer.
    • Different intro sequence.
    • Different voice clips.

Character Changes

Many characters had their names and/or occupations changed for American localization.
