Press Your Luck: 2010 Edition[1] is a video game released in 2009 and is the third video game adaption based on the TV show, Press Your Luck, the first being GameTek's 1988 MS-DOS adaption; the second being the 2006 Interactive DVD game.

Why It Should Be Whammied Out

  1. Lack of Mii support, as with many of Ludia's titles.
  2. Uninteresting Big Board; only 3 different boards. One board has the lowest amount on the 4 square, and no whammies. The 2nd board has the middle amount on the 4 square and two whammies and the last board has the big number up top and seven whammies sprawled out. The Round 2 board is the same, just with more money.
  3. The Wii version's glitches, including a non-looping board sound.
  4. Some questions are no-brainers, including what 6 times 6 is, but the AI answer them incorrectly. Um, Ludia...It's called "artificial intelligence" for a reason...
  5. Annoying host. He says the same things without any change of tone or wording.
  6. Bad graphics, even for seventh generation standards.
  7. Like the Interactive DVD game released 3 years earlier, the Whammies don't have nearly as much charm or personality as the old ones.
  8. Only one prize on the board in the Wii version; a trip, which has a set value of $3,000 in round 1 and $4,000 in round 2.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Unlike the 2006 DVD game, this game is much more faithful to the source material, despite the flaws this game has.
