this is easily the worst game ive played all year. the trivia is trivia, cant complain about that. the other things bring it down. namely jeff foxworthy. hearing his little comments constantly drive me insane. he got stuck saying the same line after every question for 10 questions. the game plays much better with the tv muted. also the only playable character is a lady who looks like a soccer mom. this game is so family freindly it makes me nausious. also the acheivements dont come easily, so dont rent it for the points. in fact just dont rent it. or buy it

This is a different version than the arcade game with more achievement points and more game modes, but it doesn't help.

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.
