ONLY BUY IF YOU HAVE FAMILY/FRIENDS OVER TO PLAY...
Let's get this out of the way right off the bat. Just like EA's Monopoly for the 360, this game sadly has NO online play. There are also no "bots" or automatic, computer controlled opponents so there is very little for you to do if you are alone. The game is only enjoyable if you have family or friends over to play it with. EA needs to get with the program here and put these games online for users to enjoy any time, anywhere. On the plus side, the interface is smooth and easy to use, the in game graphics are crisp and colorful, you can use your XBL avatar in game and there seems to be a lot of questions, I've yet to run into any duplicates. EA currently offers a free Movie Question pack online as well, hopefully they will continue to support the game and release these free question packs every few weeks to keep this game from getting old. I really wanted to love this game and recommend it to everyone but sadly, it's lack of online features and really limited single player mode prevent me from doing so. It's great fun, but again, only if you have people in your house to play it with.
This game is definally is awesome with a group of friends and even alone. The questions for some of the categories are difficult and some are quite easy. The questions range from elementary school all the way to recent years. I haven't seen a duplicate question yet, so that means that there are plenty of questions to go through before they start to repeat. I would recommend this game to anyone that enjoys trivia games. If you love watching those kind of shows on TV then this is the game for you too. You cannot play online against anyone but there is a single player option called Clear The Board which is fun. This game would have been better if you could challenge people online. There are six categories of questions and there is downloadable content which are expansion packs of new questions which is great.
Buy the Board Game
The lack of Online play really takes the multiplayer social experience out of the issue.....I was thoroughly disappointed with the question selection and plan on returning the game the instant i get the chance....or trading it in or whatever. The interface itself is rather nice and the animations are cute.....for the first 15 min. The dice roll system is obnoxious with no real sense of control and the announcer constantly goads you in the background over your correct or wrong answers. Which is just another thing i find terribly wrong with this game. Seriously just save your money and play 1 vs. 100 on the weekends or get the Board Game and play with your Fam/Friends Otherwise, the overly ambiguous map questions will make you want to kill all those around you
No, just no.
If you want to spend your time rolling dice attempting to land on one specific spot this game is for you. Questions that involve maps are ridiculous! They don't even name specific places! Simply choose a dot from the screen. There is little toon lasting value of this game as playing will make you want to loose your mind. Save your sanity and play you don't know jack, or somthing similar.
More for parties
The only problem i had with this game was that it takes a very long time just to win a round. It was an enjoyable game which you could also learn alot from since it is trivia. i would only recommend it for a bunch of friends just quizzing each other and find out who knows more. But in all yes its a decent game.
