I wasn't expecting much out of this title, and was highly dissapointed when I heard about the lack of the ability to randomize questions. All the questions are set up in a pre-set pack/show. This is the only thing preventing the game from getting a 10. The rest of the game is hilarious, fast talking, adaptive, fun, and even a bit raunchy. My friends and I never got bored and played it for hours. I wouldn't recommend it with 2 or less players, but it plays great with 3 or 4. I would also recommend staying away from online, my brief was very unpleasant.
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.
To start with, if you have EVER played a You Don't Know Jack (and enjoyed it) then there should be absolutely no hesitation in adding this game to the top of your queue right now. The game has all the hilarious quarks and inside jokes of the past as well as a whole slew of new ones including my personal favorite: the wrong answer of the game. Now, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the YDKJ series, listen up. Do you like trivia? Do you like jokes? Are you already paying to rent games? Well you have found your salvation. Ideally, you want at least two people to play this game, four would be ideal (you don't want to play it online, more on that in a bit). Even if you don't have four controllers, I was still able to play with four people using my two controllers, my steering wheel for GT5, and the BD remote because the you literally need six buttons to play this game and none of them are joysticks. CONS: Ok, so the game isn't particularly long. Each round consists of Ten questions (nine really, one is a Dis or Dat which is played by the player in last place), and the followed by a final lightning round. There are only 73 games included (There are a few DLC's) and if you try to replay one, the same questions will appear in the same order (which could be an advantage if you're say.... a cheater). Of course, this is a reason that makes this a game PERFECT for rental! I mean, with almost zero replay value, why wouldn't you rent it, play through it, and send it back. I know I did.
