  • Conclusion: What makes it so easy to sink an entire evening into YDKJ is the strength of its material, regardless of the series' lengthy absence. Contemporary pop-culture trends like Twitter are affably indulged in questions, but not excessively.
  • Pros: Kooky intellectual potty humor, Stands alone without nostalgia, YDKJ is finally back
  • Cons: Strangers in online multiplayer, Short rounds go too fast, Running out of questions

You Don’t Know Jack

AV Club

  • Excerpt: For the past decade, trivia gamers have gotten by with perfectly decent quiz-show games like Buzz! and Scene It? —earnest titles that tried hard to please us, as evidenced by their can-do punctuation.

You Don’t Know Jack

Total Xbox
9 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Love trivia? Then you probably haven’t loved its recent evaporation on Xbox 360. 2009’s Trivial Pursuit and Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! were the epitome of so-so, and last summer’s 1 vs. 100 cancellation was a crushing blow for the low-profile genre.
  • Pros: + Really good trivia-game formula; funny questions and delivery., + Accessibility and rapid-fire pace make it a perfect party game.
  • Cons: - Presentation-wise, it’s a little light on variety and visual flair., ? The YDKJ website lists “New fonts!” as one of the game’s features. How awesome is that?

  • Excerpt: History does have a tendency to repeat itself, what was once old is new again. Leggings, velour, disco – it’s all been around before and has come back with a vengeance at some point or another.

  • Summary: It's a rare game that can feel fresh and entertaining 15 years after its debut, but all it took was a lot of clever writing to make the You Don't Know Jack formula a modern success.
  • Pros: Witty writing is often laugh-out-loud funny, Lively format keeps things moving, Novel wrinkles spice things up
  • Cons: Winning is often determined by twitch reflexes, Episode structure can get repetitive, Some crass jokes fall flat
