You Don't Know Jack
High culture and Pop culture collide again!
This game was all the rage to satire enthusiasts from the 90s since its major appearance on PC and the early playstation console worldwide. The premis of the game feels like a satire of game shows in a computeristic atmosphere. A long running series with 9 hosts and dozens of combo packs for more zany questions. My thoughts of this would be great for YDKJ fans, plus if this game was popular today like its predecesor, there could be a new game show in the making and i would cast Michael Hall and Daniel Tosh as the new hosts of this game.
Having been a HUGE "You Don't Know Jack" fan back in the day, I was super excited to hear they were coming out with a new game for Wii. Well, I should have known that the Wii curses everything it touches! While this game appears to be like the classic YDKJ, the "look" of the game is all it has in common with the old ones. However, it did look like the game tried WAY too hard to appeal to the "3D" crowd, and the graphics were totally forced and weird looking. I played the first few games by myself, and I was waiting for the computer to insult me for being all alone. This was the appeal of the previous games; they interacted with you. If you played it on a holiday, it would ask you why you weren't spending time with your family. This one does not. Another strike against this game is its replay value. There is none. The game consists of three short rounds, and when I say short I mean short. In less than an hour I played through 3 episodes. There are only 73 episodes with unique questions so once you have played through all of them you begin to get repeat questions. This is fine if you play the game once a week for one round, but hardcore trivia buffs will eat through all the episodes in no time. Overall this game is a huge disappointment and I would not recommend it.
A fun and funny game for families.
This game had a lot of great things about it including great trivia and funny host. perfect game for families
This game looks okay but it is just a trivia game. It dosn't look crazy good just normal. But it is not worth over thirty dollars.
