  • Summary: The console version of Trivial Pursuit brings the party to the living room TV allowing players to customize the experience with several ways to play. Players can connect with friends in classic Trivial Pursuit mode, hone their knowledge with the single player mode, and gather their buddies and bet on their brains with the high stakes mode where every answer counts.

  1. While Scene It? & Buzz! have delivered the first taste of serious trivia games on consoles, Trivial Pursuit pushes the whole concept further by offering the most complete and challenging videogame based of a board game on the market as of now. Yes, even if the game doesn’t support online play, it remains a great game.
  2. With thousands of questions across six categories, and the option to purchase downloadable packs on the cheap, this version of Trivial Pursuit won't get old anytime soon. You'll love the game's format, thanks to a multiple-choice set-up, jumping player pieces and single and multiplayer modes.
  3. A game that is able to entertain folks, which have never played a videogame before. Sadly, there is no online-multiplayer option implemented.
  4. Trivial Pursuit is a great take on the classic board game. A couple new modes and good trivia questions makes easy and fun classic gameplay.
  5. On consoles it's only really for addicts. [May 2009, p.84]
  6. The classic board game is converted to a digital format, literally. Even though there are three modes in total, of which one is faithful to the board game original and another offering online play, the concept hasn't been adapted enough to the console format. What we're offered here is an expensive and somewhat cumbersome digital version of the board game original.
  7. It's a nauseating barrage of flattery, hand-wringing commiseration, and toothlessly apologetic joshing. [June 2009, p.103]

    definitely not the "Genus Edition" from years ago, this version is a little easier to play, but does occasionally throw out a more recent but obscure question here and there. does have some downloadable content, and is pretty solid all around. Expand
