Auch wenn der Spielmodus etwas geändert, die Grafik verbessert und eine richtige Hintergrundstory dazuerfunden wurde: Trivial Pursuit bleibt Trivial Pursuit. Fans dieses Quizspiels werden vom Nachfolger sehr angetan sein, denn die zirka 4000 neuen Fragen sorgen für nächtelanges Grübeln. Domark hat sehr auf Altbewährtes gesetzt und große spielerische Experimente gescheut.

Same old game and the graphics are OK too. Surprisingly, it's got quite nice sound effects as well.
Commodore 64ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The graphic presentation is good but once again it's just a trippery which makes little difference to the game. Same questions, same gameplay.
Amstrad CPCACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The graphics are not too hot on the CPC but they always were unimportant to a trivia game. Same questions and gameplay as other versions.
Commodore 64The Games Machine (UK)
As in the original game, score charts can be displayed, new blocks of questions loaded in, a time limit imposed and other features familiar to those who've played Trivial Pursuit are present. And as such the title of a New Beginning is a dubious one.
I really enjoyed playing the C64 A New Beginning but I'm disappointed that the Amiga version of one of my favorite games hardly makes any use of the Amiga's power. The graphics just don't amount to anything worthy of 16-bits and the sound, simply, is virtually non-existent. So what, you might say, it doesn't need them – well, no, but £19.95 still seems a bit steep when you can get the superior graphics and gameplay of Powerplay for a few quid more.
