Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Trivia games often run the risk of being run-of-the-mill. That is anything but the case with You Don't Know Jack. The game, which is a revival of a series that was popular in the mid-1990s, perfectly blends sarcasm and quirky trivia. And it's something that will delight both old fans of the series as well as those just being exposed to it. The game is a throwback to the simpler days of gaming, while still remaining relevant to today's player. And while many titles try (and fail) to be funny, YDKJ is one of those few games that will have you laughing regularly -- and loudly. And if you're not careful, you just might learn something in the process. It's a must-have for even the most casual fans of trivia and party games.

Online interaction: Players can compete with others online. In the Xbox 360 version, though, there's no voice chat with other players or any other sort of interaction aside from the gameplay.
