In spite of the minor problems listed above, I enjoy playing Jeopardy!. I played so often while writing this review that I have encountered some questions three times. The game is still challenging for me when set to highest difficulty with adaptive AI (artificial intelligence).
Let’s end this review as Alex and Johnny would want. A fun option for quiz fans, its categories may reoccur, but this faithful adaptation is entertaining anyway — “What is Jeopardy?”
On the whole, Jeopardy is a fine bit of software. It's simple, it's familiar, it's fun, and it's educational. Were it not for this game, I would probably still be embarrassing myself at parties with the misconception that Edward Albee does not capitalize his name. I'll bet my mom doesn't know that...yet.
Jeopardy! is a fine quiz game that most casual gamers, and even some other gamers, will enjoy. If they also happen to be a fan of the show, they'll get that extra little charge at seeing and hearing their favorite TV personalities on their very own computer screen. Jeopardy! has a clean style to it staying true to the show's metaphor without adding a bunch of extraneous 3D fly-by animations and other types of things of that nature that developers all too often try to throw in to glitz things up. Challenging, engaging, and entertaining, Jeopardy! is as fun and inexpensive addition to the casual gamer's library.
You can set the buzz-in time, response time, and skill level (which affects how "smart" your computer opponents are). Like You Don't Know Jack, Jeopardy is much more fun to play when you're competing with real human opponents. If you're a trivia buff, there's plenty here to keep you entertained. But we're going back to watching it on TV.
