This is a board game best played with a few friends who know each other well enough to laugh about the fact that one player can’t remember when the Battle of Hastings was or who invented the printing press.
Conclusion: It's not like Scene It where you have HD video and thus need the space provided by a DVD, a full install of this game was 3.4GB, however I wonder what it is in the game that takes up that much space. Overall this was far and away the worst trivia game experience I've had on any platform.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I can remember many board games from my childhood that I loved to play. Snakes & Ladders, Ludo, and Monopoly are just a few that come to mind.

Excerpt: This latest Trivial Pursuit title is a great take on the classic board game. Although suffering from a few issues, it still has a lot to offer for armchair trivia veterans and casual enthusiasts alike. Ultimately the success of this game will be tied to the frequency and quality of DLC.
Pros: Cool animations and bright visuals. Scrolling stats for each players. Facts & Friends mode is well constructed. Ambient sounds aren't too irritating.
Cons: Some visual questions lack definition. Question pool should have been bigger at launch, and charging for updated DLC packs containing additional questions will likely irritate customers.
