Im surprised to see the incredibly low rating that most reviewers are giving this game. It is, after all, a trivia game and there isnt much you can do with it beyond copy the TV show and put in a lot of questions. And there really are a lot of questions! I played many games, some normal rounds and some speed rounds, and only got one or two repeats. Yes, it gets repetitive quickly. And sadly, playing too much will likely make you hate Jeff Foxworthy because he says the same things over and over.... and of course most of it is geared toward making you think you got it wrong when you actually got it right....how clever! But other than that, answer the questions, get a few gamerscore points and stick it back in the mail. Not a great buy by any stretch, but a very nice rental.

Not A Good Trivia Game

My family and I are fans of the show. We are also fans of Jeff Foxworthy and the Blue collars, but I only mentioned them because I am not sure I can stretch how I feel about this game into as many words needed to make this a legitimate review. I don't know if I would call this an EPIC fail, but it could possibly be very worthy of the title.

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.

This has to be one of the worst games for the 360 to date. It feels like a game you could play on the computer for free and still feel like you are getting jipped. Very repetitive with the animations between questions, and like a previous reviewer said: There is even a cutscene to tell you what the right answer was for a True/False question.........rediculous. Not even worth a rent for easy achievements, because the achievements are not even easy!
