  • Summary: The world's most popular trivia game is about to become a wild free-for-all! With incredible new game features, this all-new version of the Trivial Pursuit game rewards the clever, the speedy and the sneaky-- while still highlighting everybody's trivia talents. Trivia fans can bet against others, steal wedges and even crush rivals' game pieces (along with their hopes of winning). Add in some impressive Hollywood types hosting each category, and loads of multimedia clips, and you've got a Trivial Pursuit party where everybody is in on the action. For those who crave free-for-all play, the traditional game, or even a quick trivia fix, there are plenty of modes: the Unhinged version, the original classic, and a fast new "mini" game. It's an outrageous twist on a favorite game with movies, stars, sports, and news that you know you know. Y'know? [Atari] Expand

    The biggest advantage to picking up the classic board game for PS2 is the online play. Getting a game started is simple enough and there are no noticeable technical problems.
  2. If the game really interests you, go ahead and get it. You probably won’t be disappointed and it even has online play, though goodness knows why as you’ll be lucky to find an opponent.

    Won't hold up to extended play anyway because of the too-small question set. It's a shame; it's a well put-together game otherwise.
  4. So the big question is, "Does Trivial Pursuit Unhinged improve upon the actual Trivial Pursuit experience?" The answer is a resounding "No."...That there are far fewer questions in Unhinged than in your average Genus Edition doesn't help.
  5. Lives up to the name of Trivial Pursuit in every way except for it's limited question bank. It's a glaring flaw that's hard to overlook. Flash and Unhinged modes are fun and provide a fresh take on the game, but repeated questions will take the wind out of any game's sails.
  6. Unhinged's ultimate downfall, however, is that there is no digital opponent when you play alone - apparently, it was decided that offering online play was enough. Since half the fun of games like these is actually beating someone, the lack of A.I. is disappointing. [June 2004, p.88]
  7. The general lack of thought and polish is obvious in almost every aspect.

    As board games and trivial games go its good, and multiplayer can be good too overall it's a good game, that can be addicting at times. Also the tower game is pretty fun. Expand
