By far one of the best Jack games to date. Yeah, some of the questions are a bit dated (hey, it was made in 1998), but it still fun to play. The classic questions types are back like "Dis or Dat" and (to the hosts' dismay) "Ticklish Testgum" (Gibberish Questions) along with new ones like "Roadkill" and "Jack BINGO". "Roadkill" is simular to the Jack Attack, but you have to connect two items together instead of finding an item's match. "BINGO" has you buzz in when the correct letter of the answer is lit up, simular to Three Way from YDKJ 3. It does add a lot of variety to the game. This game features all the host from previous Jack games and has a small story arc (you'll know what it is by the second time you play). Don't worry, it's still the same game with the randomness and twisted trivia you know and love. Also, screws has been changed and for the better in my opinion. Instead of pressing S once to screw somebody, you have to hit S multiple times to make the question totally unreadable and force your opponents to answer the question, whether it's readable or not. One small thing I want to point out is the music. The electric guitar can really get you pumped to play. Special mentions goes to both versions of the Jack Attack music, by far the most tense music out of all Jack games. The one downside is that this game is very US-centric. So if you do not live in the United States, the jokes and refrences can fly right over your head. This poses a problem since most of the jokes are built into the questions. All in all, if your looking for a fun party game to play with your friends (or alone for all you hermets out there) then this game is a must buy.

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.
