Kid, 11 years old May 9, 2012

Is it any good?

Kids who enjoy testing their knowledge will love this game. They get to be the adult who must call on smart fifth-graders to help answer questions about school subjects. Some questions are easy, others hard, many deliberately tricky. The theme music and presentation are slick and exciting, just like the TV show, and the game moves along fast culminating in the opportunity to win a virtual $1 million. The game is single player but kids and parents can have fun playing it together.
