Summary: Well, I was really looking forward to this game and hoping it would revive the Trivial Pursuit popularity as it was in the 1990's. Unfortunately, this version is not it (perhaps a later version will be?). The package is misleading as it is not xbox live compatible - you cannot play others on-line - which to me renders it basically useless. They over did the voice over announcer on this game. I always keep the volume down as it is ReaLLy irritating.
Stupid--yet another game that can't be played online

Summary: Guess I should have done my research before buying this--they fooled me with their little Xbox Live logo on the front of the package. Silly me for thinking I could actually play against real people online. None of my friends like trivia so I guess I'm stuck playing by myself. Why bother?
Trivial Pursuit - a bit pointless! (Trivial Pursuit (XBox 360))

Excerpt: "... Overall, I would not recommend Trivial Pursuit as I think it would have been better if it was released as an arcade game released for 800 Microsoft points rather than a full retail game with an RRP of £40. The game is not awful but I would not recommend buying it separately as it does not have much different from the traditional game and with not very good graphics, sound and especially the fact there is no online play which is just plain lazy I think ...
Pros: Can play anytime, can ` t lose pieces, playable a few times
Cons: No online, bad sound, graphics, lazy, cash in
Excerpt: "...table playing Cluedo, Monopoly or Trivial Pursuit with my family. Most of which, being the youngest, I lost. My other half, knowing my love for silly and simple games, told me when he had heard Trivial Pursuit was releasing a game on the Xbox. Perfect for me, a chance to redeem myself for all those times I lost in my youth! (Sore loser? Me? Never!) And another fun game to keep me occupied for a while. What is it / How to play? ------------------------------- ...
Summary: For the most of us Christmas is a time for family. Three things spring to mind when I think of my Christmases; food, TV and games. Food because I stuff myself to the point of breaking; TV because I used to go through the Radio Times and use a red pen to highlight all the films I had not seen; and games because it was the one time of the year that we would gather as a family to play boardgames.
Pros: Freinds and family mode, fun for a short while
