Terribly fun trivia game for all ages - literally. Up to four people can play & the questions are actually adjusted to meet the participant's age levels! Sweet. The topics are well chosen, the questions are varied, the Wii pointer works dead on the money. You buzz in by snapping the wiimote backward, feels rewarding.
This is a great trivia game for friends or for family gatherings around the holidays... not too hard to include the kids and not easy for adults. It's bright and friendly and very inviting to both gamers and non-gamers. Feels like everyone playing a really fun board game, except it's much more fun.

We brought Smarty Pants to Christmas dinner, and the wii generation was playing this game. The elders and non-gamers could see and hear the game from the side and started to pay attention and join in. Soon thereafter, our parents were playing a round themselves! While "competitive," the entire family started to help all four players, making for great memories and laughs. It is an easy platform for fun and icebreakers at parties. The game is most fun if there is a group of people. I could not imagine it being fun with just two people.

The drawback to the game is that we did see some recycled questions within the two games played. And in some instances, the questions didn't make sense though age appropriate. However, everyone started jumping in to eliminate the wrong answers. Now who's got the quickest thumb to buzz? A bunch of laughs within itself.

Smarty Pants is a collection of trivia questions accessed via the Wii as opposed to the old-school deck you'd find in a traditional board game. Unfortunately it stops there, since the scant additional features feel tacked-on like a lazy afterthought.

Though the menu claims to offer options, they boil down to single vs multiplayer and co-op vs competitive. The rest could be summed up as "difficulty". Once the game commences, you are presented with multiple-choice questions and choose the answer you want by simple point & click with the Wii remote.

The game's weak attempt to add motion control is implemented so poorly that as long as you waggle hard enough you get credit for any task you're supposed to perform, be it "Dance", "Jump", or even "Tug-of-War". I was hoping for more, but found myself disappointed.

The positive side of being such a basic game is that there was little opportunity for bugs or glitches- I certainly didn't encounter any. The game offers a lot of questions on a pretty wide variety of standard trivia topics, so if you're just looking for endless trivia this will be slightly more interactive than going through a Trivial Pursuit deck card by card.

In the end, though, if I'm going to plunk down my hard earned green for a video game whose core concept is already available in non-electronic format I expect to see some additions to the recipe and a unique experience. Smarty Pants fails to fulfill that expectation.

What is really neat about this is that it is AGE oriented meaning that questions correspond with a person's age. That said, being that I don't know a lot about a lot of subjects and am more "specialized" for lack of a better word, I got a lot of wrong answers. No matter, I went back and lied about my age (told it I was 20 when I'm really 40) and it was a little better.

The entire family played this togehter and we had a lot of laughs! Having to "dance" or "wave" to get more time is ingenious! Here you go - play a trivia game for the Wii but you STILL HAVE TO KEEP MOVING! Thus you can get your exercise while playing. And we all laughed at each other and our silly dance moves.

Something else that was nice - at the end, it seems that everyone gets an award - even if you miss every question (as I did while still playing as a 40 year old). I often got the "fastest" answer award; my youngest got the award for getting three out of four correct in a given category, et cetera. So you can keep your spirits up and not feel bad. Besides that, we all helped each other. My husband and dad shouted out answers to the sports questions - I gave answers on science and we all were amazed at what we didn't know about fashion!

Fun - but it IS Trivia! I think it's best with a crowd.

We absolutely love playing this game! Family game night has become a Smarty Pants night...the board games are growing dust.

This is a very fun game because each player enters their age so I can play with my all of my kids at one time and no one has an advantage. Not to mention the kids love the silly things you have to do like tug of war and spinning of the wheel

I would recommend this to anyone...its also quite a bit of fun with friends over and a few glass of wine :)

If you own a Wii you should pick this one up!

We have 3 trivia types of games for Wii: Smarty Pants, You Don't Know Jack (YDKJ), and Jeopardy! Smarty pants isn't horrible but its the least favorite of those 3 comparable games. It can be fun and it can also be very frustrating. Sometimes you can play an entire game where the questions are very easy or very difficult within the same game. When it's playing easy, medium, and hard at the same time its fun, otherwise it's annoying if they're all too hard or too easy. Some of the questions are just so off the wall like "What company published [insert book name here]"? This games tries to be like Trivial Pursuit but doesn't do as good of a job at it as Jeopardy! does being like Jeopardy. And YDKJ is just a highly unique and entertaining game. Other annoyances of Smarty Pants are: When nobody answers correctly the correct answer is given but it goes by in an eye blink and you often miss it, sometimes you never get the correct answer, and although the physical aspects to the game can be fun if you're in the mood for it sometimes you just want to chill and play some trivia not dance around the room or play tug of war. Finally, their are times where you play "sudden death" rounds with your opponent and have to answer questions until you miss. If you happen to be player one then a big green arrow blocks your view of the question for about 1/4 of your alloted time often leaving you with insufficient time to answer the question. If you have other trivia games that you like I wouldn't buy this one unless you get tired of the others and if you don't have any trivia games then I suggest YDKJ or Jeopary! first.
