This game really does have the most accurate title. We got through the whole game, and we still don't know who Jack is!

I have played other versions of this game for PC over the last 15 years. It is a great triva game for teens and adults that will make you laugh as much as it makes you think. 2 Thumbs up!

In this modern update of the awesome YDKJ 1-3, you still cannot use the mouse, thhe scoring is futile compared to the Jack Attack (if you can call it that anymore). And the number pad does not work.
The questions are OK, some are worded strangely, but the whole system is clunky and unfunny.
Id much rather dust of my cds of the original YDKJ 1-3.
Dont Waste Your Money.

I've been playing YDKJ games as long as they've been around. Though I've always loved them, I think this may very well be the best one. It's hard to put my finger on why. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm often laughing out loud.

It's a party "trivia" game. It's hilarious as hell, but unless you're at the wii or something, there's not much point in playing it unless there's not much choice.

I would recommend this game if I knew who this Jack guy was.
The title certainly doesn't lie.

(Real Talk: pretty funny, and fairly fun at parties.)

If you like funny trivia games, get this.
I'd like to see some more multiplayer functionality that isn't solely local only though.

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.

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

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.
