Top Customer Reviews
* the annoyingly smug announcer - I guarantee you'll turn his volume down to zero after only one game!
* the "cute" animations as the pieces move from square to square, which stay cute for a couple of games and then just take up valuable playing time. Would have been much better with an option to disable these, or at least reduce the number of times they're used (1 move in 2, 1 in 4, etc)
* the "confirmation" pop-up every time you use a Roll Again square. Why? I don't need a confirmation every time I chose History, or Sport & Leisure, etc, so why tell me "John rolls again" when I land on roll again? It interrupts the game play for no reason at all - just put the dice up already! Again, no option to turn this off.
* the map approach to many Geography questions, mentioned in other reviews, adds nothing to the game, wastes time as it progressively zooms in on the right map area, and requires you to not only know the answer to the question (e.g Marseilles) but to know where Marseilles is in relation to three other French cities. Should be optional at least.
None of these are bad enough to stop us playing the game, but definitely detract from the enjoyment of playing. Would definitely be worth trying a friend's copy before you buy.
Clear the Board is a single player challenge, most similar to a speed run option. Once a question has been answered, it's permanently removed from the board. Stringing together correct answers increases the score multiplier, which determines the players overall score. Classic mode is fairly self-explanatory. 2-4 players can compete against each other, battling to win wedges in the usual categories. Facts & Friends mode is very similar, but allows bets to be placed on whether the current player knows the answer. It adds a new layer of competition, because wedges can also be won this way. Multiplayer can be handled with just one controller; players simply pass the pad after their turn.
The trophy set is interesting, split across all 3 game modes. Awards are given for answering category questions correctly, or getting consecutive answers right or wrong. There is a free to download `movie pack' from the store, which adds some longevity to the overall experience, although the premium content is way overpriced. Furthermore, irritating design choices can impact on the games enjoyment, particularly after a few hours. Questions that require an answer to be selected from a map do not list the options available. So not only are you required to know the answer, but where it is geographically. The games announcer is bi-polar to say the least, with no consistency to his relentlessly enthusiastic observations. He'll praise your abilities and call you a loser, usually within seconds of each other.Read more ›
I bought this after enjoying Buzz so much, unfortunately all this game does is show very clearly how much better Buzz is. Don't waste your money.
I played already probably 24 hours and i just saw a couple of repeated questions.
I'm pleased with the game :)
