5.0 out of 5 stars Great trivia game, A+ January 4, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Game is based on the FOX TV show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, as you should know.

There are 4 game modes:

Single Player:

1. Homeroom - Like the show, answer 1st through 5th grade questions to get to 1 million dollars

Multiplayer Modes (2 to 4 people required):

2. Academic Academy - Each player takes the same quiz (like Homeroom)

3. Flashcards - 10 second timer, 10 questions, answer fastest for more money, answer 1st through 5th grade questions

4. Spelling Bee - 10 second timer, 10 questions, answer fastest for more money, pick the misspelled word

In the Homeroom mode, you use the Wii-mote to click and answer the questions. You have three cheats: Peek, Copy, and Save, just like the show. You can ask each classmate which is his or her favorite subject if you choose. You can skip repetitive portions if you choose. Also, there is no timer, which is very nice. On the TV show, once you get to the higher grade levels, the answers are received verbally with no "True and False" or "Multiple Choice". All the questions in the game are "True and False" or "Multiple Choice", with the exception of the million dollar question, which you will have to type in the correct answer, I'm not sure if spelling counts or they have different acceptable variations for answers, I always spelled correctly.

For the Multiplayer modes, YES YOU CAN use multiple Wii remotes. You can also share Wii motes if you only have 2. You don't use the motion control by pointing and clicking in this mode, rather you use the Directional Pad to select your answers and such. Using the Wii motion controls for the Multiplayer would be stupid, you'd give the answers to your opponents because they'd see your cursor. Smart move by THQ.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game but could be improved with newer versions December 3, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My 5 year old and I and my husband enjoyed playing. It was tedious playing multi-player as some people noted passing around a shared remote was annoying. I was also taken aback at the comments. When your player does not get the right answer the character exclaims something to the effect of "I'm an idiot!" I thought this was appropriate at any age. Other comments were similar. Some are not as sensitive about these things but I do not want my children calling themselves or others IDIOT. We don't use this word in our house. Nor stupid. Remove it from the game. There are better comments to use. All in all, we had fun. Would we play again? Not sure. Maybe. My 5 yr old enjoyed it. My husband and I enjoyed it as well. Decent game for the price and something fun to do as a group. Just a few things I would like to see changed in future releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just like the show. January 14, 2009
By BC
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all... most Wii games are $50+, lets manage expectations here. The graphics are not the best, but if you like the show, you will like this game. It follows the format to the letter. The comments by Jeff and the kids can be turned off in the settings. Also hitting "A" on the wiimote when Jeff is talking will bypass his comments and speed you through the game. I am not sure why other reviewers are mentioning that their kids are bored as the show format is not targeted to kids, thus one would think that the game would not be either. It has been a lot of fun so far!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funner than expected December 18, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I received this game as a gift and I was pleasantly surprised. The whole family enjoyed playing this game (age range of 9 years to 75 years old). Definitely one of our new favorites. We really enjoy the Flashcards and Spelling Features where up to 4 players can play simultaneously. The Homeroom feature (one player tries to win a million dollars) is also fun. You can check the Honor Roll and see all of your game score averages compared to the other players.

3.0 out of 5 stars My kingdom for a "the" and the lack of an "a" February 14, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay...I accepted it when my answer to the question "what track and field event involves water?" was deemed incorrect because I typed in "steeplechase" instead of "the steeplechase." So, when the question was "what do we call a female donkey?" I answered "a jenny." Incorrect again. Correct answer was "jenny." I know it's not real money, but c'mon. That just ain't cool.

Nintendo, I expect better than that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Recommend April 20, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii version of this game is awful. Some of the questions are worded so that they don't make sense or could have more than one meaning. The answers are often inaccurate or entirely incorrect. I have looked up the answers many times after the game claimed the one I guessed was inncorrect only to find that the game was wrong. The strengths of the students do not always match the subjects given, and sometimes their strengths change in the middle of the game. It is very frustrating and disappointing. I have played the x-box version of this game, and it does not have any of these flaws and is much more fun. If I get one wrong on x-box, I know that the game is right. I do not recommend spending any amount of money on the Wii version unless you do not care about guessing the correct answer and "flunking out" because this game says otherwise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tedious and clunky June 7, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
It is nice that the game is very inexpensive, but the overall design and game play were tedious and clunky. There was no real building of suspense within the game or a feeling of fun competition. Sluggish and uninspired.
