Summary: I can't lie, I do enjoy playing this game with my wife on occasion even though it has its shortcomings. The maps\geography parts would be my personal top offender, but those have been covered by other reviews in better detail. The movie trivia option is dense with Japanese film references. It gives you the impression that it is heavily influenced by, or possibly written in Japan, and then ported to the US. Standard mode is the only way we play in my house.
Summary: This game is ok, not the best but not the worst. My only real complaint, and it's a big one, is the print/type for the questions is TINY! We have a decent sized TV, but it's really hard to read. Otherwise, it's fun to play on occasion but it's not a game we play a lot.
Summary: I have been playing Trivial Pursuit with my family for YEARS! This is fun on the Wii, but the print is very small even on our big screen TV. I like that there are different types of questions with pictures, and other ways to ask instead of just the cards like the real game. Another downside would have to be that it moves slowly... roll dice, piece moves, question later, it could go a bit faster. But overall a fun game.
Summary: Trivia Pursuit has always been a favorite game of mine. I was really happy when I heard that it came out as a Wii game. I rented the game from my local BlockBuster store before buying and had some friends and their children over to play. As the game started, one child remarked that maybe it was time for us to "zoom in" on the question and make it bigger. We all agreed and wished we could have zoomed in to read the questions.
Summary: The monotonous drone of the 'presenter' could drive you up the wall but thankfully there is a mute button. If your going to try this with the children it's worth knowing that you need to answer the questions within a set amount of time so would be better if you started with a simpler version.
