The biggest departure of the series within the collection of You Don't Know Jack games on Steam. You Don't Know Jack 4: The Ride is locked in at 13 questions per game, with themed episodes that you choose based on your answer to a hypothetical question before each game. You don't pick your questions, either. Instead, you pick how much each question will be worth, although it's mostly random. It's a much darker and grittier game (literally), with times where it will actively try to mess with you (like disabling all vowels on your keyboard when entering your name), and with a light plot that has multiple endings to chose from. This is definitely the most bizarre game in the YDKJ series, but I think it might actually be my favorite.

This is frankly the best You Don't Know Jack of the entire series. It includes the best hosts of the series: Cookie Masterson, Guy Towers, Josh "Schmitty" Schmitstinstein, and Nate Shapiro. (Buzz Lippman is also there, but that would be going into spoilers. Yes, spoilers for a TRIVIA game.)

The classic question types of Gibberish, DisOrDat, and the Jack Attack are back, and feel fresh. The question types for solely this game, Roadkill and Jack Bingo, also add a fresh feeling to the experience.

The Ride was frankly the shot in the arm the YDKJ series needed back in 1998, since volumes up to this one felt largely the same for the most part. Not that that was a bad thing.

If you love trivia games or game shows, you're doing a disservice to yourself by not getting this game, or the other YDKJs. But this one is the best.

Score: 7/7: F*cking Awesome!

I love this game so much. I use to play it all the time when it first came out. So glad I got it on Steam! The announcers are always funny, the game messes with you from time to time, which adds to the fun, and the mini-games are fun. 100% recommend if you like random trivia!
