Great game, when you get past the nonsense just to get there

Summary: "Jeopardy!" as a game certainly deserves five stars, and the reasons why are universally known. The Xbox 360 version gets only four stars from me, though, because of the distractions that exist around the game itself. The in-game menus just to begin playing the game are awkward, clumsy, and, to a large degree, unnecessary. So many clicks just to start the game!
Summary: Of course, the knowledge of trivia is great, too. However, I noted my son's speed of reading the answers really improved as he played. A lot of unfamiliar words and great teaching moments. Who would have thought?
Summary: For me, the difficulty levels are not well-balanced. "Easy" is Medium, "Medium" is Hard, and "Hard" is "Challenging." However, it's still fun to play, for the most part. If you like the show, you'll probably like the game.
Summary: Like I've stated for all the Game Show console conversions...they're slow and the graphics are U-G-L-Y. The game play is good but you really want to choke who ever decided everyone in the game should play like they're drunk geriatrics....I do suggest it for older, non-twitch console players...but I'm waiting for someone to come out with an excellent conversion...haven't found one yet...
Summary: My husband just got this game for Christmas, and just put in the game for the first time tonight. He did everything he could think of to get the game to start but pressing the start button did nothing! We did a search online and found out that if you have a Scene-It controller sensor that plugs into the usb port of the xbox, the game won't work until you unplug it. We did this, and it started right up. Overall, my husband likes the game.
