  1. Trivial Pursuit earns high marks for accessibility and coming up with fresh gameplay ideas for a game older than most 360 owners.
  2. The price point is simply too high for what feels like a substandard product, and there are too games out there that are simply more feature-complete to justify spending more than the price of the board game on this version.

    On consoles it's only really for addicts. [May 2009, p.84]
  4. This game has a high replay value, looks good, several modes that twist the original game in fun ways, and manages to be a fun experience without doing anything terribly mind-blowing.
  5. This version of Trivial Pursuit turns out to be something slightly different from the classic we all got to know through the years, mainly due to the multiple answers structure. The main drawbacks are the poor graphics, no online gameplay and, mainly, the retail price, that we expected to be lower.
  6. Skip all that and go straight to the Facts & Friends mode, a madcap battle where you share one wheel and take turns competing for wedges. It’s too complicated to fully explain here, but there’s betting, mini-games, cool power-ups, and a duel-to-the death finish. It essentially modernizes Trivial Pursuit in an ingenious way, and it’s really the only reason to spend an excessive $40 for this game now, instead of waiting for the inevitable Xbox Live Arcade version.
  7. There are plenty of good trivia questions, but this is a flawed port of the classic board game.
  8. Trivial Pursuit is just another example of why some games should stay as board games.

    How about pursuing a price drop, EA? [May 2009, p.95]

The game is good fun and pretty easy achievements. Better than scene it, but the animations do get tedious. Full Review »

    A lot more content then we expected, only come across a few repeats while playing it at least once a week but the questions are routinely A lot more content then we expected, only come across a few repeats while playing it at least once a week but the questions are routinely mis-filed - a question on "History" was asking a "Geography" question. A lot of the sports are about international sports - we're Americans, let stick to American sports and leisure please. My wife inadvertantly chose a non-pleasing avator but there is apparently no way to change it - the "manual" provides no help. And the fancy graphics are fine to being but annoying after the third time yet there is no way to turn them off. Poor production value, poor user interface, dubious questions, poor Quality Assurance - I don't think we'll be buy another product from this group. Full Review »
