Family Feud HD



TV quiz show becomes fun multiplayer game.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game plays very well. Since you only have a few seconds to input your answer, an auto-fill program guesses at what you're typing -- if you see your answer pop up after only a few letters, you can just tap it to submit an answer very quickly.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Family Feud HD is based on the long-running television game show and requires players to guess what a random selection of surveyed people answered when asked a certain question. This is a quiz show more about guessing what people think than it is about knowing the correct answers. It can be played by multiple people (either on the same or opposing teams) with just one iPad.

Is it any good?


FAMILY FEUD HD is a very well-crafted video game adaptation of the famous television quiz show. It's nice that the computer-controlled opponents offer some challenge; even when they're wrong, their guesses are reasonable. The crisp graphics are very nice even if the contestants have ridiculous fashion sense; the sound is great, but the host's delivery is a bit awkward and sometimes comically stilted. The game's only real flaw, though, is the same flaw in the original game show -- some of the answers are just plain dumb. But that's because these answers are from random people taking a survey, and some random people are bound to give nonsensical answers. With four members on each team, though, Family Feud HD makes for a great pass-and-play party game.
