Is It Any Good?

One of the highlights of the You Don't Know Jack series has always been its topical nature. And the series couldn't be more topical in its iDevice debut, with questions and comments about Elizabeth Taylor's death, Charlie Sheen's bizarre behavior, and the royal wedding. As with the recent console version, this is a wonderful blend of sarcasm and trivia and melds old school gameplay with modern times. The jokes might go too far for some parents, though, so this is definitely not a game for younger players. Older players will love the humor, however. And, as an added bonus, the questions are truly challenging, which could help you learn a thing or two as you play.
