Description

You Don't Know Jack: Volume 4 - The Ride is the fourth main installment in the series of humorously inclined quiz games. Several changes has been made to the game's structure and themes, compared to the previous entries. The game follows an episode-based format: "The Ride" refers to an elevator that transports the player character to rooms, each dedicated to a different theme. The choice of room for the player to tackle depends on his/her answers to the game's initial questions.

The rest of the gameplay revolves, as in the previous installments, around answering trivia questions and gaining money by doing so. The game has a higher degree of randomization regarding the prizes offered for correct answers. There is also a new type of question, called "Roadkill", which requires the player to find a word that connects two other phrases.

Commercials

The game was packaged on two CDs: the first was used solely for installing the game, while the second contained all the game data. Also on the first CD was a selection of the joke commercials used in the credits of the games. If you wait around 6 minutes into track 42 of that CD, you'll hear an extra little ditty...
