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. I used the Wii version for this review after finding it on clearance at a store. This game is also on the Xbox 360, Playstation 2, and Playstation 3.
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. Following the likes of Monopoly and Hasbro Family Game Night, Trivial Pursuit is EA’s latest take on a famous board game.
Conclusion: On regrette amèrement la présence d'un mode en ligne voire même la simple présence de l'ordinateur contre lequel nous pourrions jouer. En l'état, le titre d'Electronic Arts ne permet aucunement de profiter de lui en solo. Ce n'est pas le maigre mode destiné au joueur seul qui permettra au jeu de tourner souvent sur la Wii. Orienté multijoueurs, ce titre ne s'apprécie donc que si vous êtes à plusieurs.
Pros: Plus accessible que le jeu d'origine, Mode de jeu Défis entre amis plus dynamique, Présence de la partie classique pour les puristes
Cons: Pas de mode en ligne, Pas d'ordinateur contre lequel se battre, Obligation d'être à plusieurs
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a video game based on the Hasbro board game of Trivial Pursuit. There is one minor reference to alcohol in terms of complimenting your success by popping bottles of champagne.
New version of classic board game adds a fun twist.

Summary: Parents need to know that Trivial Pursuit: Bet You Know It lets players compete in a traditional version of the Trivial Pursuit board game as well as a new, more rapid-fire version in which all players get a chance to answer every question. Players 'bet' on whether or not they know the answer, and whether or not their opponents know.
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. Put simply, the industry thinks that if you own a Wii, then you’re more likely to play casual games such as this – even if the controller doesn’t necessarily lend itself to controlling dice, cards and playing pieces.
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. This marks the first time I have ever rented or even played a console game based on a popular board game.
