6 month old son reduced to tears!

One of the most violent videogames I have ever played with my children. For the question "Do you still speak Italian" my 6 month old son Craig responded with "No". The Trebek avatar then frowned and pulled out a revolver while saying "Incorrect". He pointed the gun at Craig's avatar and restated the question. My poor 6 month old son burst into tears! He would not stop crying and the makers of this evil videogame should be ashamed of themselves. There were also questions about the henious Playboy magazines including IMAGES!!!!!Two thumbs down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
