Review: You Don’t Know Jack

  • Conclusion: All in all, You Don’t Know Jack is a highly underrated title.  The game has a one of a kind, hilarious sense of humor that is guaranteed to get you to laugh out loud more than once.  This is particularly a must own if you are into face-to-face social gaming, and would provide a nice alternative for quiz show fans and those Rock Band fanatics.  With the game being $29.99, there is really no excuse why you shouldn’t get this.

You Don’t Know Jack

  • 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. Its future has been looking pretty dire — but thankfully, You Know Don’t Jack feels like a good step toward recovery.
  • 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. Hell, even ancients like Duke Nukem are attempting to become relevant again, so why not everyone’s favorite trash talking game show?

You Don't Know Jack: Jack Is Back, And In Rare Form

Game Informer

  • Conclusion: Concept: Resurrect the snarky pop-culture quiz show for a new generation Graphics: The text is readable, bumper animations are clever, and…that’s about all there is to see Sound: Cookie Masterson is back, and in rare form. He and his supporting cast manage to sell even some of the slightly weaker material Playability: See the right answer, press the appropriate button.

  • Conclusion: Jack won't blow you away with spectacular high-definition graphics or a deep and involving story. But then again, it's not supposed to. The essence of You Don't Know Jack is playing with friends, having fun, and getting a good laugh. The little changes of gameplay in comparison to other entries, especially the ability to allow everyone to answer a question, make for a better experience.
