Summary: This game is ok, but could be a whole lot better. My biggest complaint is that the categories have some questions that are completely impossible to answer while others could be answered by a third grader. Beyond that, some categories are misleading. For example, the history questions are 90% current events from the year 2000 forward. It was pretty irritating. Beyond that, the sports questions are from sports few people care about or have even heard of.
Summary: The only problem i had with this game was that it takes a very long time just to win a round. It was an enjoyable game which you could also learn alot from since it is trivia. i would only recommend it for a bunch of friends just quizzing each other and find out who knows more. But in all yes its a decent game.
Summary: At its core, this is a great game for the trivia buff. But its content really needs work. The graphics are great for what it is (this is a jazzed-up board game, kids, not Halo.) The gameplay - visuals, pace, control - is truly excellent and well-thought-out. The designers did a fantastic job bringing Trivial Pursuit into the video gaming world. My primary complaint is the quality and quantity of content.
Lack of online play really hurts what should have been a great party game

Summary: I've complained nearly since the release of the Xbox 360 that there are no good trivia games for the system. I had purchased and quite enjoyed the original Trivia Pursuit: Unhinged game for the older (original) Xbox system. It was great fun to play, but unfortunately the terribly inadequate backwards compatibility mode for the Xbox 360 didn't include support for that game until several years after the release of that system.
Excerpt: "=== Game play === From the off you will find that the basics of this game remain the same as the board game. You will half a circular board with different colours and there will be special squares that allow you to earn a piece of 'pie' to complete your pie of 6 correct answers on questions from different topics and then you will be the winner of the game. Each colour represents a different topic of question as there are 6 different ones. There ...
Pros: Average longevity, lots of downloadable content, incredibly cheap, fun for lots of ages .
Cons: Did not bother finishing the achievements because I found the game boring after a few hours .
Summary: Good game in general. The questions are a little easy and loading time at the start can be slow. Good way to pass away a night. Only downside is you can't share two controllers with four seperate people, it is one controller for all of you, or four separate controllers.
Summary: I have to say I was quite disappointed in this game. Having got it as part of an xBox bundle, my husband and I relished the idea of going head to head and challenging each other on our knowledge of trivia. Having been brought up on the classic board game, we found this to be a poor comparison. Its obviously made for the American market with too many questions centred around American history, American TV, American Sports ......you get the picture!
Summary: So ein Abend vor der Xbox verleitet mich immer wieder nach spielen zu gucken. Ob nun online im Shop, oder noch einmal spontan in der Videothek. Bei einem dieser Abende ist dann auch das erste mal trivial pursuit auf meiner Xbox am laufen gewesen. Und ich muss sagen, so schlecht empfand ich das Spiel gar nicht mal.
Summary: Le jeu propose trois modes ; un mode solo, un mode multi classique et un mode défi entre amis. Ce dernier mode permet de jouer à tour de rôle et évite que quelqu'un de trop fort réponde sans arrêt laissant les autres s'ennuyer. Les questions sont de difficulté moyenne. 4 fois sur 5 il s'agit d'un QCM classique. Parfois, il y a un curseur à déplacer sur une échelle afin de répondre à une question quantitative.
