If you're trying to get this game to work on something with a high DPI (what Apple would call retina) display, it may crash. If it does, make a short-cut to it on your desktop, go into the properties of the short-cut, select the "Compatibility" tab, check the box labeled "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings", and then click OK. If this was your problem, the game will run fine when you use the short-cut and scale itself automatically (I think THQ implemented it with vectorized graphics and text anyway). It would be nice if Steam could do this for folks with older games in which it's necessary, although this may be one of the few.

This game is fantastic. An instant classic. A humorous romp!! I am terrible at trivia but it is absolutely worth it to play these games even just for the funny narration and comments. Bring your friends into the game. Don't forget to ignore him when he wants you to type your names in. :)

"The show where high culture and pop culture COLLIDE!!"

More YDKJ is good, missing some question types but still wacky and fun, especially with friends.

It's rare that a video game is funny. This video game is funny. It's also fun. Kinda wish it had online though, but the old versions were always couch coop anyway.

This is a fun game with great trivia. You will learn something from playing this game. The questions can range from easy to downright difficult, plus it is a lot of fun to find the wrong answer of the game. My only gripe is that when you play through the different episodes, the game feels like you are doing the exact same thing over and over. But otherwise a fun game with great humor.

Great game with lots of fun to be had. The only problem is that the concept is too much for some people. For example, I was playing with my cousin and he got all pissy when the question was confusing to figure out. So, i say to him that's the point of the game to figure out the question, then answer. After this, I tell him what the question is asking and he still doesn't get it right and just quits. So, make sure friends are not idiots.

Closer to it's roots.

The past YDKJ games have been subpar. There's no disputing it but everything after the original was downhill, thankfully this newest installment tries to recapture that same feel and atmosphere. While it's definitely not nearly as good (pre-made rounds and no three player mode I'm looking at you) as the original it is a step in the right direction to creating good funny trivia games again.

A great purchase but lacking in multiplayer and having to play pre-made (non-random) games isn't the correct format for this game.

This is an irreverently funny trivia game. The questions mix pop culture with general knowledge in fun and humorous ways. There is single-player mode for seeing how much money you can make on your own, and 2P versus mode for competitive play. The sense of humor is quite dirty at times though, just to warn you. I found it hilarious.

Do you like multiple choice questions? Do you like questions so absurd you barely have enough time to wrap your head around them? Do you like listening to a cynical show host degrade you for everything you do, right or wrong? Then this is the game for you! With the zaniest trivia this side of Cuba (Cuba? I'm sticking with Cuba.), you're gonna have a great flippin' time. Excellent 2-player game as well: Watch your friends squirm as you screw them (you heard me) and get the wrong answer of the game, rocketing yourself into an unreachable first place. All around, 10/10 game. I seriously can't find anything wrong with the game outside of local multiplayer only, which I feel works with this kind of game. Pick this up ASAP.

+ Hilarious questions and dialogue
+/- Generous amount of episodes, but no DLC for PC
- Only 2 players?

Twisted trivia to make you and your party guests laugh out loud. Yes, you can play by yourself, but this is absolutely a party game, like the You Don't Know Jack of the 90's. So why, oh why, can you only play 2 players? Supposedly, it's because only 2 people can feasably use the keyboard at the same time. I guess Jellyvision didn't know you can use game pads on your PC. Sheesh.

All gripes aside, the game is hilarious. Sometimes, answering the question right is a matter of deciphering the strange wording of the questions, which can be funny or frustrating, depending on how clever you are. Be ready for anything, this is not a standardized test.

It sure seems as if this will be the last 'traditional game' iteration of You Don't Know Jack. Now with mobile games, you can play against a bunch of people you don't know on Facebook, instead of in the same room with your good friends shouting and acting silly. Huge improvement, social media sure is making our lives better! /sarcasm

Well, that's the way the Cookie crumbles!

As much as I love this game I can't with a straight face reccomend it to get it on Steam. It's unforgivable how much the PC version lacks functionally compared to the console versions. 2-player max, no controller support, no DLC. BUT IT HAS ♥♥♥♥ING ACHIEVEMENTS. Oh boy! If you have a 360, a PS3, hell even a Wii don't bother, a console version of You Don't Know Jack is easily obtainable in your nearest bargain bin.

Apparently I have to give it a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. There's no option here to abstain. I mean, yeah, it's okay with another human player, but it WOULD be LOADS of fun if I could use controllers, configure or even view my controls, or play with more than just two people.

Those three issues are basically what's keeping me from recommending this game. I wouldn't pay $20 for it, but it's probably worth it if it goes on sale.

NOTE TO STEAM: This is NOT a negative review. It's a NEUTRAL review. Your options are too limited.

Really fun update to a classic from years ago... fun trivia, fun jokes/presentation... the only downer is that currently the only way to play head to head is on the same PC, next to each other. (This is not a total downer, as half of the fun is hearing your opponent yell things like, "I know this one!" while you beat them to the answer).

found it by "accident" because it seems to be available only in north america.

note: this game is NOT included in the "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK Classic Pack"!

and unlike the other "you dont know jack" steam releases, this one works fine and is optimized for new computers and operating systems. (screen resolution, sounds, animations...)

ITS A TON OF FUN and the jokes and questions are well thought out!
well, honestly i had a hard time answering some of the questions, its not so easy for a non native english speaker, take it as a challenge ;)

you've got 73 episodes with different sets of questions to play, it will sure take a while to finish and master them all.
after that the game probably gets a bit repetitive.

things that bother me about the game are:
the missing online multiplayer feature (not even a global/friend leaderboard!), that would make the game a total blast, i would also love to see the game in other languages....
last but not least: there is local coop, but for 2 players only.

nonetheless: this "you dont know jack"-part is worth spending money on

I remember playing this game when I was a bit younger with my father (I believe that it was YDKJ 2), and laughing my ♥♥♥ off at the all of the stuff that was happening on screen, but at the same point... I also remember that I learned.

When I heard that there was a new version of this game out a while ago, I remember being quite excited for it, and I still am! I love this game, completely. There are still the hilarious antics, screwing like mad, but on top of that, there are the new features, such as the wrong answer of the game, and the "Episode Sponsers", which had me in hysterics for my own amount of time, but I still think back to that time before my father passed away and laugh every time I play this game and I think about him, and I still learn stuff!

The only downside that I can even remotely think about this game: There's no Ticklish Testgum.

Fantastic. Great fun with a friend or even by yourself. Funny and mind-engaging all in one. Just I'm not sure if its quite worth 20. Many websites sell this (bought my copy off of amazon for $3) and its steamworks so will always activate :D So make sure you catch a sale somewhere.

I was a big fan of YDKJ back in the day, and was excited when I saw this remake was available. Unfortunately, it disappoints on a few key fronts and I can't wholeheartedly recommend it:

1) 2-player only. Many older YDKJ version offer more players, and console versions of this remake offer 4-player. This is a game where more players = more fun, so the lack of 4-play is disappointing.
2) No net play. While Jack is best face to face, and none of the older Jacks had this either, if I recall... it should be a standard feature on a modern remake like this.
3) No controller support. This is probably the reason for the 2-player limitation. Both players have to huddle around the keyboard, which is a bit lame. I'd like to hook a laptop up to the TV and give each player an xbox360 controller to buzz in with... but no dice. This is another feature available on consoles, by the way.

In summary, this is tha YDKJ you know and love from 1996... which is 2014 is a bit disappointing. The PC version is also surpassed in features by the console version.

Nice twist for a trivia title. Owned my first CD version in 2003 and once i discovered the latest version on STEAM, it was a no brainer. Very re-playable, especially if your an achievment ♥♥♥♥♥. Witty humor and a variety of in-game games make this title enjoyable, at least in the casual gaming scale. Looking for a title to pass time with a friend? Try this one out and be soon to realize.. YOU DON'T KNOW JACK!

A fantastic trivia game filled with snarky commentary and questions so oft abstruse that they verge on being utterly nonsensical. Unlike any trivia game you've played before, even if you've played the prior YDKJ games. This new installment in the series far exceeds the weirdness and hilarity of the older games.

This game is just awesome. It's witty, funny and a pretty good piece of comedy. It has a ton of content, I still have 60 episodes to go after 4 hours. It's a great game you can play with gamers and non-gamers. However, you can still play it alone, but the game is at it's best when you play with someone else.

It's an awesome party game.

The most fun and entertaining trivia game you can imagine. The host, Cookie Masterson, really outdid himself voicing the most hilarious lines that could ever be heard in a trivia game. Not only that, but it also somewhat makes you feel like the game interacts with you in a way. (By insulting you in every possible way) Got this during the sales, and it was entirely worth it. I even got an acheivement for laughing at something Cookie Masterson said. x3
