You Don't Know Jack (Xbox 360)

 

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. The latest entry in the venerable trivia game franchise uses snarky...

In the mid-nineties, the You Don't Know Jack (YDKJ) franchise shook up the interactive trivia scene with a sharp awareness of its own audience and the context in which they'd experience the game. The source of much entertainment at social gatherings,...

You Don't Know Jack combines three of my favorite things: sharp wit, trivia, and malicious strategy. This new entry marks the first time since the original PlayStation that console players can screw their opponents and listen to Cookie Masterson berate...

You Don't Know Jack (PS3) Review

 

Jellyvision revives their hilarious trivia game series and it's just as entertaining as it ever was.

During the late 90's, You Don't Know Jack hit its stride on the PC with its brand of off-beat and funny trivia questions you could not find elsewhere. Releases eventually tapered off into a lengthy hiatus that lasted for years but Jellyvision has...

The trivia-with-attitude game a makes a triumphant return.

One downside of a console-based Jack is the lack of a keyboard, which restricts the variety by forcing multiple-choice questions. Other changes are for the better. Instead of lockout buzzers, the game now allows all players to choose an answer,...

It ain't no Trivial Pursuit, baby.

Hundreds and hundreds of questions; …with more downloadable content to come; Jack Attack as freaky as ever

Limited "special question" options

The original crass king of trivia has returned. Trivia games are often made or destroyed based on their selection of questions and challenge. It is always nice to see one...

REVIEW: But you'll smile anyways!

Really good trivia-game formula; funny questions and delivery.; Accessibility and rapid-fire pace make it a perfect party game

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?

You Don't Know Jack Review

 

You Don't Know Jack was an awesome trivia game back in the '90s, but does the 2011 version rock? Yes. Yes, it does.

You Don't Know Jack is a fun, engaging trivia game. It's got a great sense of humor, clever rounds and enough questions to keep you buy for a while. Plus, it's only $30. The presentation isn't anything to write home about, but the base game is great...

You Don't Know Jack Review

 

If you're unfamiliar with You Don't Know Jack, let's fill you in a little bit. In the mid-90's, Jellyvision managed to produce one of the few trivia games that didn't grate on the nerves with a generic presentation and repetitive question. Rather, it...

The gameplay itself is engaging and fun, and online play works pretty good, though there were times we ran into some lag, particularly during Jack Attack rounds. Hopefully, THQ will clean this up this week, so that players can see the full potential of...
