Genre: Game Show
Total time played: 40 minutes
Short review: A slow paced version of the TV game show. The game is not fun as most of the time you are just waiting for your turn to spin the wheel.

Wheel of Fortune on the NES is not a fun game. The regular, Family and Junior editions are the exact same game with different puzzles. The issue with the game is that if you lose control of the wheel, which you are sure to do because you will land on bankrupt and lose a turn constantly, you just have to sit and wait for sometimes 5 minutes or more until it is your turn again.
There were several times that I could have answered a puzzle correctly if it were only my turn. I realize that is part of the game but unlike Jeopardy! a lot of the time when I lost control of the wheel it wasn’t due to something I did wrong, just bad luck. I cannot recommend playing any of the Wheel of Fortune games on the NES. If you do choose to play be prepared to watch 80% of the game without doing anything.
