I'll be honest, I never played YDKJ until my friend bought it for his PS2 when it was first released (at least 2002). I loved playing the PS2 version. So, when I heard that YDKJ was coming to X-box 360, I was very anxious to get it. This is another disappointment like Monopoly Streets and Family Game Night 3. First of all, with one exception, there is absolutely NO randomness to the questions; none, zero, zilch. In the aforementioned PS2 version, you get to choose the categories of EACH question; choose 1 category from 3 options. In this X-box debacle, the categories are pre-selected, called episodes. The jokes are exactly the same each time you play each episode (whether you get the question right or wrong). You can play each episode over as many times as you like...NOTHING WILL BE DIFFERENT! Eventually, I took a scratch piece of paper, wrote down the numbers 1-10 (only 10 questions per episode vs. the old PS2's 7, 14 or 21 questions option) and wrote down each answer. This way, when I play the episodes over and over and over, I'll always have the right answer, except for Jack Attack. That is the ONLY round that has any randomness to it. Writing down the answers to each episode is a sure-fire way to get the $500,000 and $1mil career earnings achievements. I played one game online, no difference in the questions, and got my behind whooped. Why? The other person did exactly what I described above...wrote down the answers. The questions are exactly the same for online vs. local play. The host chooses the episode, so that is another reason having your cheat sheet will come in handy. As far as graphics and stuff go, very detailed, colorful and original. That "guy" from the PS2 version is back, but sadly, his talents have gone wasted for this piece of garbage. The DisorDat takes place before the 5th question and just like all the other questions, you can write down the answers, because they WILL be the same the next time you play. The next time after that. The next time after that. Hopefully you get the idea. I will continue to play YDKJ, just so I can get the achievements. Most likely though, this game will be traded in within a couple of months. The replay value that is on the PS2 version just isn't on this x-box version. Save your money people. It is NOT worth the $30 to purchase.
