I thought it was very easy to catch onto, some of the catorgories were a little out there, but it was still fun. The bad thing however was how fast you beat the game! Really!! You only play 12 families after that you get to see the credits rolling...i went back and got better scores on the ones that I didnt "win" the 20,000, but it really didnt take long..maybe 2 hours. i started a new game and found shortly after that that I was seeing things repeated so I sent it back. Worth the rent, but unless ya got a huge family that will be playing this not worth the money to buy.
Seems to be true to the TV show as much as is possible for this kind of game. I guess my biggest complaint is that I have to think up all the answers. On the TV show you have a whole family, five brains coming up with answers. Here I only have me, myself and I to think of them and type them in what seems to be a very short span of time. I don't think there is anything they could change in the game to improve this other than giving you a bit more time. Also I think the game loses a bit of its appeal when you are not competing against other people and winning money for doing so. I wonder if my game opponent family is programmed to lose. I haven't played it enough to know. So good for a few laughs but not something I would want to own.
