    The presentation might not be elegant, and the AI might cheat a little sometimes, but, if played with friends and family, the classic Trivial experience is reproduced in a convincing way.

    Basically your standard trivia game (of course), Trivial Pursuit Live! is a good title, fun to play with your friends, but only if they are actually in your living room. The online component is too cramped and limited: you can't setup a match with a friend, and it's far too easy to cheat.

    Trivial Pursuit Live! is an amusing, original adaptation of the original board game. Its terrible online mode, visual slowdown, and lack of variations let down what is otherwise great fun with friends. For the right people, under the right circumstances, you won't see a single problem. For everybody else, this is one to buy later down the line.

    Another quite amusing version of a great classic... if you have friends to invite on your couch. The online features unfortunately are too limited for a “live” game.

Like playing Buzz but without the actual Christmas family time fights (seriously, one year everyone ended up in bed before midnight because there were so many arguments about being "custard pied" by your sister)... but anyway. The game itself is very similar to Buzz, and therefore enjoyable when it's possible to play it. But therein lies the problem: either no-one is online, or you manage to find some people and it says your connection was lost before you even start, or it gets to the first question, acts as if no-one else has answered, and then just hangs until you cancel the game. I spent £12 on this game; if it were just generally crap, boo to me... but when it doesn't actually work, what's even the point? So far today I've managed to complete two games, everything else was a right-off. Expand

    The game is fun to play... THAT IS IF IT WORKS! I have never seen a game as flimsy as this one.
    There are two options, you either play online or a local versus game and both aren't stable!
    If you're playing offline the game might freeze at any time and then either crash and kick you out of the game or it then takes aaaaages to load each question.
    Playing online is a whole other thing. You have to be so lucky to finally get into a game and even if you do there is at least a 50 % chance that you get kicked out of the game. The connection is very flimsy so in my opinion this game isn't worth more than 5 bucks!

    This game is garbage.

    We bought it as a fun activity while on a family holiday and the first play crashed after about 20 minutes play, the second game finished, but bizarrely awarded the win to the wrong person totally causing confusion as to why the person with an incomplete pie would have won the game.

    All we wanted was a recreation of the board game, this game is broken up into simplistic rounds which often introduce mechanics that only serve to hinder the game, for example there is one round where you have to race to put your pointed over the correct answer - which totally doesn't work when your pointer starts at the other side of the screen allowing your team mate to easily get there first,

    Additionally, the final round (after which the game ends and seemingly awards the game win on a completely arbitrary basis) consists of two fixed answers around which all questions are based, this is dull beyond belief and a really anticlimactic end to the game.

    All that is required and wanted is a faithful recreation of the board game, where the only thing that matters is knowledge.
