A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The atmosphere of the game is friendly and encouraging, and makes sharing knowledge fun.
Ease of Play
The title's controls are intuitive and easy to use. Players that have Wii Speak can speak category selections, select dollar amounts and answer questions. Those without the Wii Speak, will find the game easy to navigate with the Wii remote.
Violence & Scariness
The questions can reference violent world events in which people were killed.

Products & Purchases
There is the tie-in to the television show, and the occasional answer may refer to a movie, musical albums or other items in pop culture.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Though Jeopardy is rated for Everyone, there are references in the answers to alcohol and tobacco.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that JEOPARDY is based on the television game show. As in the show, players attempt to answer questions tied to dollar amounts, and occasionally bet earned cash on questions when the Jeopardy and Double Jeopardy cards appear as well as during the final question in the game. The answers (players are required to determine the best 'question' for the given answers) can reference news, history, geography, pop culture, and a wide range of other topics, all of which means that younger players may find the game too hard even though this title is presented in a multiple choice format. Up to three players can participate but a Wii remote is needed for each player.
Is It Any Good?
Jeopardy may follow the pacing of the television show, but the pacing may be a touch slow for many people. The graphics are rather mundane and while there are more than 2,400 clues (or answers) in the game, the game just lacks excitement associated with other video games that are based on television game shows. This is not a bad game, by any means, and it will appeal to those who enjoy trivia and keeping up to date on current events.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
