The PC version of this game does not feature online multiplayer or the 4-player local play that many old YDKJ fans are accustomed to. Instead, there's only a local 2 player option. It won't affect the overall gameplay much, but you'll miss out on some of the exciting multiplayer features (ex: "screw"ing another player)
Meanwhile, the console version (X360, PS3) of this game does feature online multiplayer and 4-player local play.
For me, that is quite a big deal breaker, cause YDKJ is most fun with a bunch of friends.
You answer trivia questions from every part of academia while cracking up at stupid puns, double entendres, and very funny jokes being told by Cookie Masterson, the bodiless voice that hosts the game. This is not a Regis Philbin type host. He will mock you for getting questions wrong. And it's hysterical.
The questions are of high caliber, and typically expect you to know two separate things to answer the question correctly. For example, you may be asked to identify the Sesame Street character that is the color "mauve" or equivalent questions where you are drawing knowledge from very different parts of your brain. It's funny, it's NOT easy trivia, and each episode (Of which there are 73!) lasts around 10 minutes.
Aside from that, the game is funny, entertaining, and a whole lot of fun. Keep in mind, it is the exact same game they sell on xbox 360 and PS3, so you won't be getting any different questions if you already own it on one of those systems.
I also wanted to mention that some reviewers were upset you needed to use "Steam" to play the game. Steam is a game portal, and if you are a casual gamer, you may not have heard of it, but its actually HUGELY popular with most PC gamers. It's a great application, with TONS of game sales. If you like $3 games... you really should check out steam. I understand reviewers lower rating since they did not realize it was "activated" through steam - Just don't pass on this game because of it without actually checking out Steam. Using Steam is free, so don't think you are getting bamboozled into some scam. :)
Requires Steam for installation. Running this on Windows 8 and no compatibility issues.
There is no mouse (or apparently controller) support. From my understanding, THQ, the game's publisher, is going on under/getting bought out. And given Jellyvision's comments regarding their PC support, and my own experience with this PC port, I'd say you're rolling the dice when you buy this game.

It was fun for a while, but becomes annoying. As with most computer games these days, you can unlock more with more purchases.Published on October 12, 2013 by Jack Roberts

Our familiy loves this game! It is very fun and entertaining. Some of the content can be a litte racy, but in a humourous way. That is why it is rated T for Teens.Published on April 9, 2013 by Mommy of 3
