  • Summary: The Bible Game casts players as contestants on a game show with fast-paced, "beat the buzzer" action and a comical off-screen announcer as emcee. 20 mini- and micro-games with 1,500 questions reinforce inspirational Old Testament teachings such as Jonah and the Whale, David and Goliath, The Tower of Babel, and many more. Multiplayer mode for up to 4 players encourages family members of all ages to play together, and provides a fun alternative for family game nights. Expand

  1. This game is interesting enough to keep most kids' attention with a bit of innocent humor adults will appreciate and a Christian rock soundtrack even non-Christians can bear.
  2. There is enough to entertain a Christian family, looking to bond on a Saturday night, but novelty will wear off rather quickly. The trivia questions repeat far too often and a few of the Challenge games should have been wiped from the stone tablets.

    There's not enough biblical depth to warrant a purchase from religious folk, yet the mini-games aren't that engaging, either. It all feels somewhat hokey as well; almost as though you're playing a game that Ned Flanders would buy for his kids.
  4. To be quite honest, The Bible Game isn't as lame as I thought it was going to be. It's not great, hell, it's not even good but at least it doesn't totally suck.
  5. Underneath the religious overtones is a mediocre party game that shouldn't get much play, even at a Catholic school retreat.
  6. 40
    Interestingly, the saddest part of The Bible Game is how it manages to completely ignore the core messages of religion in favor of trite Nouveau Christian catchphrases. It's all content without meaning or context.
