I remember playing this game back in the day and having a blast, And this title did not disappoint me. Whether your trivia buff like me or just a casual player. Jack has a huge variety of questions that will keep you amused and scoring points. I would recommend this game to anyone who wants a break from FPS's and RPGs and just wants to have some fun playing on a trivia tv show.

If anyone remembers how much fun the PC version was that we used to play back in the day, then you'll love the reboot on PS3. The game added a few tweaks to the new version, but overall, it's just like the good ol' days.
The one thing that kind of bugged me was that on PC, you had the option of playing a quick game or a long version (21 questions i think?) On PS3, there's only 10 questions and then the final classic Jack Attack round.
Other than that, i have no complaints. The additional downloadable content is $5.00, each set of questions are hilarious, fun and unique, plus you have the classic commentary true to the Jack game. There's also a special "Wrong Answer of the Game" where you are given a clue at the beginning and you have to find the answer which is hidden among one of the wrong answers throughout each round. It will deliberately be the wrong answer when you select it, but you'll actually be rewarded $8,000 for finding it. ($4,000 if both you and your partner select it at the same time).
I have a half-dozen PC YDKJ games and love them, so I had high expectations. The PS3 version only allows 10 questions followed by the Jack Attack. My wife and I played several games and were both disappointed. Every game came down to who knew the answer and had the fastest finger on the Jack Attack... we could've skipped the rest of the game and just played the Attack and gotten the same result every time. For party/quiz games, we have much more fun with Scene It or Buzz Quiz games.
