Hmmmm. Well, I love QI, I really do. It's one of my favourite TV shows. However, I know I am not alone in thinking that DVDs containing QI episodes would be a much more worthwhile purchase. Unfortunately, for some bizarre reason, it looks like the series are not going to be released on DVD, so we have to make do with this.
Initially I was amused by Stephen Fry's banter and the typically quirky questions. However, I got quickly bored with this game. The questions are so difficult that I found myself guessing randomly every single time. Stephen also has a limited number of responses to getting a question wrong, which quickly gets annoying when you've heard him say "oh no, that's quite wrong," about ten times.
The game might have been more enjoyable if you could compete in teams rather than on your own, if some of the questions were easier, and also if other QI regulars featured in the game. Only Stephen is used. The people who designed this game failed to recognise that the appeal of QI is not down to Stephen alone, as wonderful as he is. It is also due to the hilarious Alan Davies, as well as the numerous brilliant regulars such as Bill Bailey, Sean Locke and Rich Hall. It is a crime that none of these other great comedians got a look-in.
