I was a huge YDKJ fan back in the day, so obviously I was very excited to see a new version released that is console compatible! Here's the skinny:

The GOOD: It's hilarious! The same action packed trivia show with absolutely hilarious comedy will keep you in stitches! A lot of the old favorite question formats (Jack Attack, Dis or Dat) make an appearance. The wrong answer of the game, which varies by episode and is like an obscure scavenger hunt, keeps you on your toes. The format allows for everyone to play most questions, so even if you have a 'buzzer beater' in your crew, everyone can still score and enjoy the game without bashing the guy who seems to know everything a second before you do. Eleven questions a game (five per round for two rounds plus a jack attack) makes it a quick game, but lots of replay value. I find myself saying "just one more..." after most games. The content is VERY fresh and updated and the comedy is funnier than I remember.

The BAD: No gibberish questions... that's a fan favorite! Everything is multiple choice or jack-attack style, so no fill in the blanks either. Personally, I hate the episode format: you used to be able to pick categories, now you play pre-programed episodes with no choice, which lowers replay value.

Fans of the series: you'll find things to hate, but it's most def worth it. Every format of the game changes a bit, so get over your nostalgic hangups and enjoy the ride.

For newbies to the series: seriously? You're still reading this? Buy the game already: even if you hate trivia, it's too hilarious not to buy.

I had owned and played 5 different incarnations of this game on PC and loved it. So when I discovered it was coming out for my Wii, I preordered on the spot. I got it yesterday and played it. Let me tell you something folks, this did not disappoint! The only less than desirable issue is that it only does a 12 question game, where the PC version gave the option of a 7 or 21 question game, but otherwise all the bells and whistles are there. Can't wait to play with a group of friends!

It's fun...it brings back a lot of memories when we used to play on the computer...BUT when it's done it's done. There are 70-something new games and then it's over...the old game used to mix it up a little...this one - if you've played a certain episode once you will see it the same exact way again. This means when my husband and I get through all of the episodes- it's over and we will no longer have any use for the 30 dollar game.

If you ever played You Don't Know Jack on the PC, well - this is basically the same thing and slightly improved.
Loads of fun to play.
My only complaint is the number of episodes seems quite small - it won't take long before the questions start to repeat.

As one of the earliest CD games, the Jack series made the trivia game fun by adding comedy that most game shows lack. For most of the series, it remained exclusively on the PC. With the latest version, it is now available for nearly all systems. Does the comedy translate to the new systems, or should it have stayed on the PC?

Gameplay

The gameplay is like that of many trivia game shows. The host will read a question and give four possible answers. The faster you buzz in, the more money you can win or lose. Part of the challenge of the game is in how the host asked the questions. Since each question is asked in such unusual ways, "What could conservative spokesperson Ann Coulter do to make herself colt-ier?" as an example, just trying to figure out what the question is part of the challenge. With the unique way of asking the questions, it can give even smart people some problems, which makes the game more fun.

One good or bad part of the game, depending on how you see it, is the "Wrong Answer of the Game." At the start of the game, a sponsor will promote itself, one of which is Magic Pudding. This sponsor acts as a clue to the wrong answer they are hinting at. Picking that wrong answer, in this case is Jell-O, will give you a big boost to your score. This gives those that a trailing a chance to quickly catch up, but it also encourages you to play in a way that is not how a quiz show should be played. Unless you are far behind, it is best to leave this part alone.

Challenge

The other part of the challenge is in whom you are playing with. One thing about the game is that it does not offer any computer opponents. If you are going to play by yourself, the score becomes a meaningless number.

YDKJ is very similar to the version that used to be found online. Complete with zany commentary from Cookie and fake sponsors, this is a fun game when you have someone, or a group of people to enjoy it with. One feature I found pretty cool was the "wrong answer of the game" where you would try and find the wrong answer that went along with the sponsor for that specific episode. My least favorite aspect of the game is definitely the "Jack Attack" - I just don't find it as fun as the multiple choice questions. I finished the game, and one problem I encountered was that it froze my Wii twice. One thing I would change though is that I'd get the XBOX version with downloadable content. I do recommend this game for purchase if you are unable to purchase one of the versions with downloadable content (ie PS3, XBOX).
