It genuinely feels like you're on the show. I can almost smell Jeff Foxworthy's musk, I can almost feel my parent's shame, I can almost taste the millions of virtual dollars I've won.
Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Baby, when you're having this much fun, it don't matter. 10/10

For decades, man has wondered the ultimate question... "Am I smarter than a 5th grader?". Well thanks to the amazing people at THQ (which shut down shortly after making this abomination) we finally can know where we stand in the ultimate hierarchy. Running on the top-notch "playground engine" with some of the most amazing next gen graphics I've seen in decades, this game is hands-down a classic that will stand the test of time. Now besides the graphics, let's discuss the story becuase I consider the story to be the most amazing part. You play as a nameless man who has just survived a plane crash that landed him on an abandoned island, after searching for help your character is graphically ♥♥♥♥♥ and then beaten to near death by the satanic girl "Amanda" (also, Amanda ♥♥♥♥ING SUCKS at geography). Afterwards you are held captive and tied up in a fake studio forced to play the game of these childrens malicious leader "Jeff Foxworthy". Everytime you win you get 1 million dollars in monopoly money and should you manage to amass 10 billion dollars in 100 hours, you'll be spared and allowed to leave the island (after the rapes of course). It's a truly dark story line for it's time and one that has given me nightmares for months now. There are over TWO multiple endings including: Winning, Losing, Dropping out with "X" amount of monopoly cash, and losing but walking "home" to your torture cage with 25,000 dollars in monopoly money. With so many endings, a deep and dark story line, and some of the best graphics I've ever seen, this game hands down deserves an 11/10 and is a game that will continue to haunt the dreams of grown men for years to come.

People please buy this game, it's not only the wet dream of anyone who wants to prove they are smarter than a 5th grader it is also possible the single best game that has come out since Thief: The Dark Project, System Shock 2 or even Deus Ex.

20/10 must buy...

It's pretty fun, but when you think about it, these students (obviously American, I'm Australian) are really, really smart. I got a grade 1 question 'What is the spanish word for 5'. That is pretty easy but in grade 1?? I couldn't even count to five lol xD. I'm like almost in grade 12 and this grade 6 stuff is kinda challenging, especially the U.S. History and geography since I'm Auzzie. Anywayz, even if your not American, this game is still kinda fun, very small download, and can play offline, so it's great for boring days. TBH it is a bit over priced for such a small game. I would make this maximum probably $2.50 or even free. I would recommend this because it is awesome :).

Played through to completion 6 times and at no point did it get any better. Horrible, Horrible graphics, poor dialogue and despite trying to like it, i found it impossible.

Save your pennies and but ANYTHING else. (seriously, anything)

I love this show on tv, so I thought getting the game would be some nice fun, but the game is very glitchy. All of a sudden you aren't allowed to clik on certain things, or the childreen dissapear. If there was a way to fix these bugs the game would be lots of fun to play with the family. See who knows the most, or to use as a tool to teach your kids new exciting facts.
So game conncept is fun, but the mechanics doesnt live up to its job.
