Everybody's favorite trivia tv show is on the PS2.
Pretty much the gameplay is just like the tv show: answer questions. Build up an impressive career by winning games to be eligible in the tournament of champions. Also play alone or with two other players. The categories are challenging yet comprehendable. There is really no downfalls to this game which makes it a family fave.

What Is Just Okay For 200 Alex

This game was just alright in my opinion. After you've played a full game you really didn't want to play any more ,but you play just so that you can get to the tournament of champions ( which I never got to ). The game moves rather slow, but it's what you would expect from a quiz show game. It's much like the real game, but more repeatitive.

The game is a little slow, but if you're a Jeopardy fan you'll like it. Answers are the same esoteric, hard topics, but Alex Trebek is actually a part of the game now (only his voice was used last game). Players can write their name in on a digital stylus (again, like the real thing), but are still referred to as "Player 1", "Player 2", etc. Computer players are sometimes omniscient, sometimes dumb as a post.

Although there is a Campaign mode (where you try to qualify for the Tournament of Champions), it's not very engrossing. Neither is the Tourney. However, the Jeopardy Contestant's Quiz is a hoot..! I never knew that it was so dang hard..! All-in-all, a mediocre game (but great for fans of the show).

Just too slow

This game does a good job of capturing the essence of "Jeopardy!", and if you're a fan, you'll probably enjoy it. The content and the interface are inarguably sound. I found the pace to be agonizingly slow, however. There are frequent, unnecessary cutaways to video footage of Alex Trebek congratulating you or informing you that you have control of the board. Not only that, but the AI players can't just pick a new clue quickly and cleanly; instead, they always have to preface their selection with a spoken "U.S. Presidents for $400". It gets old fast. And I guess I've just been spoiled by the point-and-click interface of the Wii version of "Jeopardy!", because having to use the directional buttons to scroll through the alphabet in order to input answers in this version becomes remarkably tedious.

Besides the slow pacing, however, there's nothing here that really stands to disappoint "Jeopardy!" fans, so, if you're a fan of the quiz show, and you think you have the patience, you might want to give it a try anyway.

Brain tester

This game is a blast if you want to test your knowledge of all things. Tournement after winning
5 normal games is a little harder. But you can pick game setup in options only for normal games.
It's a kick and very relaxing.

Jeopardy?

The game was fair. It seems that the categories repeated quite often. Out of about 10 games played about every other game had a category that you had already saw.
