    This review is from: You Don’t Know Jack (Video Game)

    I expected this THQ release to be just another one of the same old, same old quiz games. But surprisingly it’s fun, and apart from wanting to the ability to skip intros, there is nothing much bad to say about the game at all.

    So you don’t know jack about what this game is? it’s a quiz game. I know you’re probably thinking, “this guy probably just loves quiz games and that’s why it’s gotten a decent rating”, no, I have played quite a lot of quiz games on the DS, and most of them are pretty annoying after a while, this one here manages to keep you amused most of the time, and the questions vary from off the wall, but logical & truthful answers, and some are pretty easy to work out… but expect to have them presented in a different way then most straight-forward games. Some questions have been put together rather intelligently, and some are just attempts to be funny or crude, which is a nice combination seeing as how some of the humor in this game is funny, and some of it’s that type of humor your dad probably had.

    The host is named… ummm… ok, minus $300 for that question, but he sounds like Steve Zahn (look him up) but it’s not him. Once you start up the game, you are given the choice of 40 blocks to choose, each is a game consisting of 11 rounds of questions, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s 11 questions tho… you will get a majority of questions in a layout like “Are you smarter then a 5th grader” where you are given the question, and 4 answers to choose, but then in some rounds there is a game called “dis & dat” where you get given two words, they might be people or songs, shows, ranch sauces etc, and then you are presented words or sentences/titles/names etc that you have to match to given two categories… to make that sound simpler, you may be given “Bart Simpson” on the right, and “Famous Youtube vids” on the left, what then happens is words appear on the screen like “Springfield” in which you would choose it to go into the Bart category for the points. Another very simmilar but different layout version of this appears in round 11 too which is called the “Jack Attack” round.

    With each of the 11 rounds, before play, you are given a video introduction to the questions number and a little jingle/song to go with it. This is kind of amusing the first few times you play, but it gets a little old pretty quickly, and I wish they had included a “skip” button or an option to turn these off if you don’t want to have to watch them before every round. Some specific types of questions have their own little videos to go with them, too. There is games like, as I already mentioned, “Dis or Dat”, “Jack Attack”, something about Trash? and a couple of other ones. These video’s are a great idea and add to just dull graphics on the screen moving robotic-like all the time, but they can become tiresome seeing as how there is 40 games of 11 questions to play.

    There is something else that I don’t know if it’s a negative or a positive, but the rounds of 11 questions never change. If you select the first block, which is #1, those 11 questions are always the same, they never change, and answers never move around, they are always in the same spot. This can lead to memorizing the answers and playing the round again for a better score, however your previous scores DO count and I don’t think if you replay a block it counts towards your overall top scores in the records menu, but don’t quote me on that.

    Something I find rather unique about this game is it’s 2 player mode. Most games like this you can only play multiplayer via wifi or online with other people with a DS, but on this game, 2 people can play at once… and no, not one go after the other, but at the same time! In normal mode you use the stylus to tap your answer, or use the L & R buttons if told to, but in 2 player mode, player 1 answers the question by selecting what it tells you to press next to the answer you want, like question 1 might indicate to press the left direction button, question 2 is the right d-pad button and so forth.. and then player 2 uses the A, B, X, Y buttons on the other side in the same manner… first to buzz in wins… unless you answer wrong that is.

    And as expected, you main objective is to get as many questions right to score money, mostly it’s based on how long is left on your 20 seconds clock to answer. If you answer and the clock has run down from 20.00 seconds to 15.89 seconds then the money you have won is $1,589, but be careful, if you are too quick to answer and you get it wrong, you could lose as much money as the time you have left!

    The sound of this game has impressed me. Each question is read to you by … damn it, another $300 gone… the video intros are a nice touch, but there needed to be more to keep it fresh and not repetitive, or an option to turn them off or skip them.

    The game advertises that it contains violence and profanity…

    My son loves trivia games and he spent his own money on this. He loved the game, but went through all of the questions in two days.
