You Don't Know Jack
An Irreverent Renaissance
For those who missed it, YDKJ has been a PC franchise since the mid 1990's. Its combination of wit, thoughful questions, and flat out humorous commentary made it one of the few PC party games that had broad appeal. Now this franchise crosses another line and has arrived on home consoles and the DS. For the DS, you can have up to two players sharing one DS (Sadly, no online play). The real star is the versions for the XB360 and PS3. Not only do they offer 73 different chapters of gameplay, but also have DLC. XBL already has pack 1 which are questions from the original YDKJ. Most gamers have never played it, or haven't in a long time, so they are as fresh as the new stuff. Online play is a great touch, but having 4 players in the same room as "Cookie" (Your host and YDKJ favorite) taunts and teases everyone and everything involved in the game. For the party gaming set, this is a must own and far surpasses the Scene It! and BUZZ franchises in every way possible. There is no reason why this game shouldn't be readily available to play in every gaming household!
I used to play this when it first came out on the computer when I was younger . Id play it over and over non stop. It was way fun. I recommend this to anyone. It is really different then any quiz/trivia game I have ever played. It has a wacky sense of humor to it.
A game your girlfriend will play with you.
I played this game over 10 years ago on PC and it was edgy and fun back then. Now its even more edgy and fun, my girlfriend actually wanted to play this 4 times in a row. The rounds are quick so you dont get bored with it and they arnt the usual ask question get answer format. The questions are put together in fun puzzle like questions to make you think harder than just what is the answer. I admit some of the answers are super harder and so far out there your wondering who or what are they talking about. Theres already an addon question pack for it which are the old questions from the game years back but who can remember those anyway? Anyway for $29.99 this game is well worth the money, it will make you laugh and say wow. Its also great to play with ur significant other.lol
I'm SO EXCITED.....
I just can't hide it! This game was SO much fun! I have played the pc versions.(yes there are multiples) I have been looking forward to playing this since it was announced. It will be nice to play with my friends and not having to cram around a keyboard.
Very Disappointed, Part Deux
I posted a negative review about this game soon after it came out. Now, in the 4 months since it's release, my negative review is only magnified. This game truly sucks. It's actually getting on my nerves. The dream sequence, "who's the dummy" garbage, fortune cookie, just so annoying. As of tonight, I have completed 65 of the 73 episodes and have downloaded the 4 Jack Packs. Why, you ask, if I hate the game so much? I want the achievements. Isn't that why we play these games on X-box? Let me assure of one thing, you most likely WILL NOT get any of the multi-player achievements because...NO ONE PLAYS THIS GAME ONLINE! People know what a piece of garbage it is. In the 4 months I've had it, I've played a total of 3 games online. I'm waiting for July 4th, to get the 7/4 achievement and then let my friend borrow it; the one mentioned in my previous review, so he can get the 7/4 achievement. Trust me, this is not the trivia game to have. After playing this rotten game, you will sorely miss the days of 1 vs. 100 on X-box...for those who played that. I can't wait to unload this game.
This is a super awesome game. I already recommended it to someone. I asked them if they can get it the DAY it comes out. I mean, come on! A person didn't know about the game the first minute, and NOW a 11-year old is talking about how AWESOME a game is a MONTH (not even) before it comes out. Buy it!
Fun, fun, fun!
I played this for hours on my old PC. Can not wait to have this new version of the game. Already ordered mine!
This game was loads of fun on the computer. Very glad to see it coming out on the consoles!
Good But Could Be Better
First off i was a big fan of the computer version and was excited to see it come to xbox! the only complaint i really have for this game is that each episode is to short and has the same questions and answers. it might not be so bad if they mixed up the answer positions but other then that it is funny witty and challenging when you first start an episode but after a few times playing each episode you memerize them pretty fast. this game would be great for a family game night or a casual party. if they fix up the answer positions or even new q/a each time you played an episode it would be great for xbox live as well, but as it is right now its good but could be way better
I can't wait!
I remember playing the Playstation version of this game and having a blast every single time I played it. I can't wait to play UDKJ to finally be on the new-gen systems!
