Excerpt: Trivial Pursuit is a well known board game that families all over the world have enjoyed. I initially thought that the home console version of this game would instantly score in the mid to upper nineties. Unfortunately for this game, I am very thorough.
Excerpt: When games based on board games are released, there has to be a very good reason to purchase them. Lets face it, it would be pretty damn criminal to just take the good name of a famous board game and give us nothing to make it worthwhile over the physical, cheaper original.
Excerpt: There’s no doubting that the Wii is going to become the home of the digital board game iteration. You’ve already got Monopoly and a handful of board game compilations, but more are sure to come soon.
Excerpt: After playing a ton of shooters and RPGs for the last few months, I decided to rent a bit of a “relaxation game”. An advertisement on the Nintendo Channel told me that Trivial Pursuit was available as of last week, and I figured that I'd give it a shot.
Summary: Trivial Pursuit does a good job in capturing the classic game, but it seems a little pointless on the Wii. It has one motion for throwing the dice and lets you point at answers, but that’s about it. Also, the lack of online hurts it…although it was expected.
Conclusion: Eventually, after playing for a long time and getting pretty much nowhere (we should have known not to play the long version), we gave up without actually finishing the game. But we all had fun anyway. I definitely recommend this game for my fellow Gen-Xers.
Conclusion: The game takes so long sometimes because the questions are so hard that you really have to think back for a while to come up with an answer. Remember, though, that it's fun to guess too! You might just guess right!
Conclusion: The Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture DVD Edition may not be a quick game to play (as is usually the case with any Trivial Pursuit game), but it’s the perfect game to pull out when you’ve got a few friends over. It’s a fun, casual trivia game that’s sure to bring back plenty of memories.
