Since developers and publishers know that the casual gamer is now as important as the hardcore, deliver trivia games on consoles is far from being over. EA has already released Monopoly a few months ago and now offers more board games through Hasbro Family Night on the Xbox Live Arcade platform. While Scene It? & Buzz! have delivered the first taste of serious trivia games on consoles, Trivial Pursuit pushes the whole concept further by offering the most complete and challenging videogame based of a board game on the market as of now. Yes, even if the game doesn’t support online play, it remains a great game. The cool thing is that through downloadable content, Electronic Arts won’t feel the need to deliver a new Trivial Pursuit 2 right away. That’s said, Trivial Pursuit is a must have in your collection.

Endlich ein Spiel, dass auch Nicht-Konsolenspieler im Familien- oder Freundeskreis in den Bann ziehen wird. Wer Brettspiel-Umsetzungen mag, gerne Quizfragen löst oder ganz einfach „Trivial Pursuit“-Fan ist, der kann eigentlich nichts falsch machen. Leider fehlt der Online-Modus, das bringt einige Wertungsabzüge. Die Mängel im Fragenkatalog könnten die Entwickler ja noch mit Upgrades wett machen, diese stehen aber durchwegs großem Spielspaß und guter Unterhaltung absolut nicht im Weg.­

Trivial Pursuit is a surprisingly fun and well put-together version of the classic board game of the same name. A couple new modes add variety to the rules we've been playing with for most of our lives, and the console-specific tricks, like picking spots on a map and the use of images, is great. The lack of online can't be forgiven, however.

The bottom line here is that Trivial Pursuit the game is a must-have for fans of the board game. The promise of future DLC is invigorating and the sheer amount of content out of the box is already impressive enough. Even with a lack of online multi-player the game delivers more than enough bang for the money, especially considering it is not a full-priced title. If you are a fan of trivia games then you owe it to yourself to pick up this classic-gone-digital, just be prepared to be humbled.

The conclusion is simple. If you enjoy Trivial Pursuit, this title is a must-have in your collection. Everyone, gamers and non-gamers, know how to play it and will be entertained with it. In addition, it comes packed with several language options. However, if you're considering other trivia titles, this is still a good option, but the Buzz! series is really fun too.

If you're considering other trivia titles, this is still a good option, but first try to figure out if you're up for the classic, six-category formula. You might prefer to go for just movies, in which case the Scene It! games are also a very good option, as they include videos as well and not just static images, text, or maps.

It's tricky rating a title such as this, but I think primarily due to the undersized pool of questions, it wouldn't be fair to push this past 7.5. If EA really get cracking with additional questions packs then this could be the definitive Trivial Pursuit videogame for some time to come, although I can't agree at all with the policy of charging for such content.

Trivial Pursuit on the Xbox 360 is a pretty well-made digital adaptation of a board game classic. But its flaws are also rather glaring, especially the lack of online play. EA also needs to give out an extra pack of questions for free if they really want to do right by those who shelled out their money for the full release. Otherwise, we’ll have to skip it and go to pub trivia. At least they have Guinness.

Trivial Pursuit may still be best experienced with a group of friends around the dining room table, but you won’t be able to deny that the virtual version offers some great fun and several modes that would be cumbersome to recreate in real life. In this way, it’s one of the better board game-to-video game adaptations we’ve seen, which makes the budget price that much more interesting.

The game pulls up a map, zooms in, and places four possible locations on the map for players to choose from without text indicating what the name of each is. It is a nice concept, but the game would have done well to at least show borders for states within the US and countries outside of it. The dry announcer lacks personality, delivering a lifeless commentary on the game that gets repetitive quickly. At the very least, the low-key, soft jazz inspired background music is relaxing. Trivial Pursuit earns high marks for accessibility and coming up with fresh gameplay ideas for a game older than most 360 owners. With one free downloadable question pack already available, the game looks to have plenty of legs despite the lack of Live multiplayer. With Live mulitiplayer, this would be the must-have quiz game for consoles. Without it, Trivial Pursuit still proves to be a solid purchase for fans of the genre.

Wie schon bei Monopoly gilt auch hier: EAs Versoftung fängt die Essenz der Brettvorlage ziemlich gut ein, kann ihr aber gerade in Sachen »Gemütlicher Spaß mit Freunden« einfach nicht das Wasser reichen. Speziell der Standard-Modus ist schrecklich unaufregend, die Party-Variante macht da schon weitaus mehr her. Und Wunder oh Wunder, selbst für Solisten ist das Spiel dank der cleveren Fokussierung auf Highscores oder rasante Fragenbeantwortung nebst Online-Ranglisten nicht übel - und doch vermisst man schmerzlich die Möglichkeit, gegen Spieler aus aller Welt anzutreten. Wer das Brettspiel nicht im Haus hat oder es als zu schwer empfindet, der liegt mit dem virtuellen Spielbrett nicht schlecht. Im Zweifelsfall würde ich die stabile Variante aber vorziehen.

La versión digital Trivial Pursuit llega con fuerza y renovados bríos para hacerse un hueco en esas noches de reunión con los amigos bien con su modo clásico, con el nuevo y vibrante multijugador o con el gran desafío que supone el modo limpiar el tablero para un solo jugador. Un buen título que potencia a la PS3 dentro del genero de los party-games.

EA’s conversion of the classic board game is entertaining and offers some great multiplayer action. The developer has intelligently implemented new, inventive game types, which bring with them fresh rules to a game we’ve been playing for years. It’s most regrettable that you can’t jump into a match online to test your knowledge against other trivia enthusiasts around the world, and the inclusion of overly-difficult questions frustrates more than entertains. But, as it stands, Trivial Pursuit has been successfully converted into video game format: it provides a wealth of trivia questions that will appeal to all fans of the game.

This game has a high replay value, looks good, several modes that twist the original game in fun ways, and manages to be a fun experience without doing anything terribly mind-blowing.

The price point is simply too high for what feels like a substandard product, and there are too games out there that are simply more feature-complete to justify spending more than the price of the board game on this version.

Aussi réussie soit cette adaptation du célèbre Trivial Pursuit, on reste quelque peu circonspect quant à son réel potentiel ludique : s'il est vrai que le mode Défi entre Amis rend les parties un peu moins sérieuses, et que le mode Alerte Trivial ! permet aux joueurs seuls de s'amuser, il n'est pas certain qu'une partie de Trivial Pursuit sur écran séduise autant de joueurs que l'original sur plateau. Il faut dire que les questions proposées dans le jeu vidéo sont beaucoup moins difficiles que celles du jeu de plateau dans son édition Genius initiale, un phénomène accentué par la présence de réponses à sélectionner qui facilitent encore plus le travail par rapport aux questions ouvertes de l'original. Si l'on ajoute à cela l'absence aussi regrettable que curieuse d'un mode de jeu en ligne, on comprend que Trivial Pursuit, le jeu vidéo, n'a peut-être pas mis toutes les chances de son côté pour attirer le public de son modèle.

Trivial Pursuit est une adaptation vidéoludique plutôt convaincante malgré ses quelques défauts. Le dynamisme du mode "Défis entre Amis", qui repense les mécanismes du jeu de société sans en trahir l'esprit, en fait une alternative intéressante qui compense l'ennui dégagé par le mode "Classique". En revanche, l'absence inexplicable, inexcusable et préjudiciable d'un mode de jeu en ligne devrait tempérer l'ardeur des potentiels acquéreurs.

Despite its problems, Trivial Pursuit is still fun because the formula tickles the inner trivia nut in everyone. But this flat port of the classic board game doesn't do much to lure you away from the cardboard original. The lack of online multiplayer is a big missed opportunity, but even players content to play locally will run into some issues. The overabundance of geography trivia is a bit off-putting, and trivia buffs may not appreciate the easier multiple-choice format. Facts and Friends mode is a silly twist on the formula, but Trivial Pursuit is too expensive and uninspired to be worthwhile.

Det klassiska frågesportbrädspelet släpps till konsol med tre spellägen. Ett som är så likt det vanliga läget som möjligt, ett för en person och så ett nytt partyläge som gör spelandet både mer spännande och snabbare. Det går bland annat att sno tårtbitar av varandra och så slipper man springa runt på en stor spelplan utan att det händer något. Men spelet saknar helt onlineläge och hade mått bra av att anpassas ännu mer till formatet. Som det är nu är det en dyr och lite onödigt klumpig digital version av brädspelet.

Standard Trivial Pursuit of course awaits you, and there’s even an odd, pointless single-player game that mostly seems like a way to memorize questions before your friends come over. Skip all that and go straight to the Facts & Friends mode, a madcap battle where you share one wheel and take turns competing for wedges. It’s too complicated to fully explain here, but there’s betting, mini-games, cool power-ups, and a duel-to-the death finish. It essentially modernizes Trivial Pursuit in an ingenious way, and it’s really the only reason to spend an excessive $40 for this game now, instead of waiting for the inevitable Xbox Live Arcade version.

Trivial Pursuit is een goede vertaling van het bordspel naar de PlayStation 3. Als je het bordspel erg leuk vindt dan zal je ook deze game wel weten te waarderen. Toch moet er wel gezegd worden dat het qua modi vrij beperkt is en dat je er niet echt veel langer dan een uur of twee per speelsessie mee kunt vermaken. De audio is beperkt tot wat simpele achtergrond geluiden en een host die beter thuis had kunnen blijven. Visueel ziet het er zeer strak, maar erg beperkt uit. Al met al, Trivial Pursuit enkel kopen als je een chronisch gebrek hebt aan mensen die het bordspel willen doen; raar dat deze game geen online multiplayer kent overigens. Er is op zich niet veel mis, maar het is vooral een zinloze release.

Trivial Pursuit is a potentially good game that's been brought down by some pretty major flaws. Despite the effort put into the presentation, issues that really should have been resolved during play testing like the frequent usage of maps, the hard to read text and the balancing of the questions are prevalent, and there's just no reason for them to be there. As a result, I can't help but think that if you've got some friends over and it's the sort of evening that might end up in Trivial Pursuit, you're still better off with the board game.

Nej, att rekommendera något annat än Buzz-spelen till den som söker flerspelarupplevelse med frågesportsinnehåll är svårt. Trivial Pursuit lämpar sig bäst som brädspel, på fyllan med ett gäng folk man mer än gärna trycker ner i skorna med en vunnen tårtbit i konst och litteratur-ämnet. Det är så det måste spelas.
