DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU'RE AMERICAN!

I bought this game in a rush of nostalgia, because I used to play it with my cousin as a kid. Even then the pop-culture references were sometimes hard to get (we were children after all), but it was lots of fun nonetheless.
Major disappointment when I realised that you can only play it in english - why they don't add language packs that have been out for about 20 years is absolutely beyond me, and there seems no progress whatsoever despite the community has been asking for years (take a look at the discussions on steam). POOR JOB!
I cannot recomment this game to anyone who's not a native english speaker. I'm living in Britain, so my english skills are quite good, but still the reaction of a friend of mine and me to the majority of the questions were like "Eh?" - no fun at all. If you're familiar with american topics from around the 90s you could give it a try, but... well. Good luck with that.

Probably one of the best games I played as a kid. And informative too! Since getting it on steam, I've played it a couple of times when I have friends over and they all get a kick out of it.

I remember playing You Don't Know Jack quite a few years ago on a disc. I also remember having a lot of fun with the game (albeit not very good) but when I found out that this was released on Steam, I was ecstatic.
You Don't Know Jack is a trivia game that is a bit different than other games. It can ask you questions from almost any subject you can think of. One of the questions could be about a television show, while the next question could be about which computer company is most likely to use shampoo.
If you like trivia games, you will definately enjoy this game, if you do not like trivia games, you will probably still enjoy this game. I recommend this game to anybody who can get their hands on it, especially considering the fact that the game is only 3 dollars.

This game has aged very well, at least for me. As I actually am able to get most of the questions correct most of the time. Except when I play with someone else, than it's like I get all sorts of bad luck.

Positives

It has a Classic Retro Feel that makes you feel all nostalgic inside, whether you played the game back in the 90s or are just now starting out. The questions are good and varied, and it's an awesome time all around.

Negatives

If I must say, for those with worse sight, reading the question answers can be quite hard. And local multiplayer can be a pain in a small room too. But these are just minor problems.

Overall

Awesome game, I'd say... an 8.7 outta 10 from me!

God, this game was like half of my childhood. I'd rent it from the library, renew it, turn it, go back the next day and rent it again. Me and my best friend played the original Volume one so often that we literally had every question memorized, it just came down to who could read it faster and buzz in.

Still a pretty good party game, use an HDMI cable to hook it up big screen and everyone can read it. True, it sucks trying to have four people use the same keyboard, but it's worth it for the nostalgia factor. Wireless Keyboard FTW!

Oh, and by the by, back in the day my friend and I were a bit young for this game, I think ten or eleven, up to about fifteen or sixteen, before I moved away from him. We had a couple of years of hilarious fun with this game. And if we didn't get why something was supposed to be funny, we looked it up.

Damals in Deutsch einfach super, aber auf English mit den extrem englischen/amerikanischen Themen in den Fragen für deutsche fast unspielbar. Für eine lustige Partyrunde leider zu Amerikanisch.

For a game that’s just shy of 20 years old, this is proof-positive that some things are timeless. As a long-time owner (yeah, I got it when it originally came out in 1995 on CD-ROM...), I can truly say the charm remains, as does the irreverence. Despite the years, the sarcasm and prodding by the “host” is just as relevant now as it was then. I always leave the game with a smile on my face.

Not only does the Steam re-release introduce a whole new generation to YDKJ, but it ditches the CD-ROM and related issues (Try grabbing the original disc and installing it on a modern, 64-bit O/S. Won’t happen without a LOT of work)...

My only real gripe is that the game is perpetually stuck at a 640x480 resolution, and going full-screen requires a manual change of the PC’s resolution to 720x480

**P.S. DO NOT forget to snag the others in the franchise. They're worth every penny!

To make this clear, this is not for the 2011 game. Instead, it covers the original 1995 game. For those that are not familiar with the series, how the game works is that the host will read a question and give four possible answers. If you think that you know the answer, buzz in and answer. While this sounds like your typical trivia game, this is far from the truth.

One thing unique to the game is that the players receive screws. If a question appears that it looks like another player does not know, you can use the screw to “screw your opponent” forcing them to answer. If somebody has the lead, using them is a good way to try to catch up. However, if they know the answer, not only will they gain money, but also you will screw yourself and lose money instead. They may be screws, but that risk make them double-edged sword instead.

Another difference from a traditional trivia game is that the host wants action. If one player has a big lead but nobody tries to answer the question, the host will not be happy. When that happens, the host will comment on the leader’s cowardice and gets the audience involved. How can there be an audience in a video game is a mystery. When they get involved, they will say, “Don’t be a wimp!” forcing the leader to answer anyway. If you are trailing and know this, intentionally not answering is both advantageous as well as funny watching the leader’s reaction.

Visually, this is the game’s biggest weakness. Most of the time, the only things to see are some faded text, the current question, and the player scores. The only real animation worth watching is seeing what happens to your icon when the score changes. While this sounds strange, a blind person can play this game with a person that can see without any problems. With almost nothing to see, not even the host, there is little reason to watch the screen. Since this is a trivia game, making a stage like in Jeopardy! or Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? would have made the game more interesting to look at.

However, this is not a game about the visuals. Being that this was one of the first CD games, they crammed it with tons of dialog. That dialog is what makes the game fun. The host always has something interesting to say throughout the question. Even with the categories for the questions, it gets you interested in what it might be. In one case, in the category is “The Fruits in Your Looms”, they ask, “Which of these fruits derives from the Aztec word meaning testicle?” Just the fact that they would create questions using such seemingly unrelated items makes each of the questions interesting to hear. In the case of the mentioned question, the correct answer is avocado. When it comments about it and guacamole can make people burst out in laughter. When the comments are strong enough, do not be surprised if a break is required to recover from the laughter.

Considering that the game has hundreds of questions like the one above, this makes a great party game. Just remember that the game really works only when played with others. Since the game offers no computer opponents, it is not the same without live competition. While the humor is there, without competition, the game does not have the same appeal.

There is one final thing to remember. When the game wants you to type in your answer, tell the game, “F%¢& Y@#”. All three players should do this. You will love how the host reacts. What the host does to you, not so much.

Windows 95 Compatibility Mode + 640x480 Screen Resolution + No Desktop Composition + No Visual Themes + No Display Scaling + Administrator Mode + Smartass Host + Mixture of Shakespeare and Scooby-Doo = Instant Memories of 1995.

See? I made it easy for you folks who complain about the game looking small on your fancy-pants 1080p displays. C:
