Weak

This game starts ok; it’s a simple version of the game show. However after playing it just for a little bit it quickly becomes clear it is not a lot like the show. On the show the students that help the contestants are generally pretty knowledgeable and often give correct answers. I found this game’s student helpers almost useless. And the questions are so simple or repetitive that after just a short time with the game you can easily win it nearly every time. I suppose if you really like the game show, you might spend an hour or two with this game.

This game was not fun. I like quiz games. The questions are ok. The graphics are simplistic but that's kind of what you expect from a quiz game, right? The part that was NOT fun was listening to Jeff Foxworthy drone on about who your 5th graders were for the umpteenth time and then making inane comments throughout the game. The game is repetitive and excruciatingly not fun.

If you like the show, the game is pretty good. It plays just like the game (except for the suspence of knowing if the answer is right or not). I played it with my 7th grader and we could never get past the 3rd question. They were surprisingly hard questions. I only gave it a 7 because we became frustrated by the fact we could not get very far in the game. Even the 5th graders in the game couldn't answer them right. Now that is SAD! I will probably be returning this very quickly.
