We love this game and are so glad it came to the PSX. It has always been a great PC game but huddling around a keyboard isn't easy, so being able to hold your own controller is a real treat. If you've ever wanted game that ALL members of your party, regardless of age or sex, assuming your of age to play this game, will enjoy then we don't think you'll find anything better.

You can't really understand how hysterical this game is unless you play it yourself, but I'll try to explain: Raoul's questions-and his responses to your inputs-are so varied and natural-sounding that it really feels like you're dealing with a human being. What's most entertaining is what happens when you either mess up a question or don't follow directions (try to answer before ringing your buzzer, for example, and Raoul gets very testy).
Doug brought home five games one weekend, including Pac Man, Boombots, Spyro 2, NFL Blitz 2000, and You Don't Know Jack, and my friend and I immediately popped in You Don't Know Jack before any of the others. I played this on the PC two years ago, and it's still every bit as funny. This game is definitely worth buying because it's great for family holidays and it's the funniest game on the PlayStation.
In the end, You Don't Know Jack is a wonderful experience that is superfun for anyone who enjoys competing and laughing and who knows a bit about Star Wars, Greek mythology, or, well, just about anything. There are enough questions in the game to keep you going for hours without seeing repeat questions. It's definitely a great multiplayer party-style game.
You Don't Know Jack for the computer is something of a cult hit among tech-savvy trivia buffs, but who's ever heard of the PlayStation version? In all honesty, the PC version outclasses the PSX version in every way -- the controls are more intuitive, and the questions are more plentiful and diverse. But much of that is due to the limitations of consoles in comparison to computers. If you think of this title as Diet You Don't Know Jack, or You Don't Know Jack Lite, you should have a blast.
