YOU DON'T KNOW JACK Vol. 4 The Ride reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
YOU DON'T KNOW UNTERWEGS The Game series originally came out for Playstation 1 and has now been released, years later, On Steam. The Thumb goes up, but please read the whole Review, which is representative of the entire Game series! Gameplay The entire "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK" – series is a Quiz Game characterized by abstract Questions and a lot of Humor. You can choose whether you want to play alone or in Party Mode and are then asked 7 or 21 Questions, whereby you can choose from one of three questionable Categories. Whoever presses the "Buzzer" may answer: If it is Correct, there is the Sum on the Account, otherwise it will be deducted. Occasionally there are Additional Games where you have to associate Terms and the Like. "The Ride," Unlike its Predecessors, Chooses a Category and asks the Questions about a Random Generator. Story Clear, the Game is a Quiz Show and has no History with it. However, the toned Voices are simply the Hammer and constantly tear very Jokes. In the End, there are also disturbing and funny Promotional Clips to Listen to. The Categories are also quite crazy and the Questions are sometimes asked so strange and branched that you have to work out the Question at first. In Addition, the Game often includes Foreign Words or older political Themes. But here lies the big Problem: The Game is only available in English! Normally not a big Deal, but as already mentioned, many Foreign Words are used, which one can already translate hard into German and then rarely knows what is meant. In addition, historical, social and political Questions target the USA and not, as in my Playstation Version, at the Germans. Unfortunately, the Resolution is not simply so scalable, which only opens the Game in a small Window. Otherwise, the Game is not graphically elaborate, because it is very old on the One hand and a Quiz Game on The Other. The Music sounds very flaky Like a typical Quiz show and the Setting Was just great in the English version and at that time also in the German. Verdict "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK" is a super Game, which used to Make me laugh on the Playstation all the Time. Unfortunately, the Steel version Was only published in English and I really tried almost everything. I searched for the German Setting on the Internet and wrote to the Developers, but to no Avail. However, you can play the first Part recreated in the Browser, but I will not publish the Link here logically. Definitely Thank you to this Guy for recreating a super Game. If you are really good at English, you can buy the Game Series, otherwise I would strongly advise against it. Did you like the Review?
