Not A Good Trivia Game

First we start with the graphics : The foxworthy character looks like Jeff Foxworthy, and the kids, well. They end up looking like very creepy kids, that has the same animation every time they are shown. You are given a choice of characters, and a very limited amount of different hairstyles and outfits to customize them with. Not that it makes any difference. Frankly, I would have preffered being able to use my Avatar.
Sound : Well, they play the theme song constantly on every menu screen. so you can expect to tire of that rather quickly. No matter what guy character you chose, they all sound the same, it goes for the girl characters also.
Foxworthy does his own voice over, but it seems he has only recorded about 15 phrases, so it takes no time at all for it to become very repetitive.
Gameplay : It is very simple, pick a category, you are given a question. Press the corresponding button to the answer. Okay, fine. Very simple, yet for some reason. It takes forever to load between answers. Also do not expect to get this for some easy achievments. Most of the things you can get, will be either far too long to play. Or online, and good luck finding anyone to play online with you
Over all it is a failure of a game. It should have at least been an entertaining trivia title. Instead, it has made me not even care about the tv show.

An XBL title at retail price? No, thanks.

The way the game is set up is frustrating to say the least. And why is the contestant always a blonde woman?
One really annoying thing is when you get a true or false question wrong. It takes so long for them to go through the whole, "Let's see the correct answer." spiel. If you got a true or false answer wrong, you OBVIOUSLY know what the correct answer was.
You get so tired of repeated animations and Jeff saying the same thing over and over in the first 10 minutes of playing that you start spamming the A button and skipping scenes. But the weird part is that you can't skip every useless scene.
And when you do win, it doesn't really feel like you accomplished anything. Plus the achievement system in this game is bogus.
This game got mailed back the same day I got it.
I'd give it a big, fat, zero if I could. It is worth nothing.

Achievements: The vast number of the achievements are in online multiplayer mode, which is bad for the main reason that I could never find a single person online to play with in any mode. Not that I blame them.
And the single player ones are pretty crazy. Play the game 100 times, and answer 6,000 questions correctly. Insane. You won't be able to play this game more than 5 times. I even had one that was bugged that I should have unlocked.
Game play: Fun for the first time or two, but forget about it. Foxworthy only says about 3 different things. You have to skip every cut scene and there are a lot between each question which really slows the game down.
Also each "kid" that you can pick has two categories they like. However, it even changes during the game. For instance I picked kelly who is good at animal science. And then if you ask her after you pick her, she won't say animal science. Plus even if the kid is good an animal science, it doesn't mean anything. They still miss the question as much as if it waswn't their specialty, so who knows.
All of the questions are multiple choice except for the last which you have to type in. Make sure you know how to spell and exactly the order of the phrase or you'll get it wrong. Horrible.
There are bugs and bad graphics abound too. You can customize your character with a whopping like 2 choices per outfit.
Overall I don't see a single reason to rent this game. It'll keep you entertained for about 20 minutes and that's it. Achievement hounds need not even try. Nothing here for anyone.
