Are you smarter than a 5th Grader Make the Grade 

 

THQ has brought Jeff Foxworthy back to the Personal Computer, Playstation 2, and Nintendo Wii in Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader Make the Grade. This game is an improvement over the first one in just about every single aspect. THQ took baby steps in improvements, but they are very noticeable here at Family Friendly Gaming. Players answer questions from first through fifth grade, and receive help from real fifth graders. Okay in the game they are not real people, but computerized representation of children. One thing that struck me as odd is how useless most of the information children are being taught in schools. But then I can't say I have used much of what I learned in school either. What turns my stomach is how money is pumped into our educational system for all of this waste, and some people's solution is to throw more money at the problems.

Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader Make the Grade looks better than the first one. I really like the improvements to the characters. They look a lot more realistic, and animate a little nicer. The graphics are family friendly too.

I read Paul's review of the first one before playing Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader Make the Grade, and I talked to him about it. The funny comments from Jeff Foxworthy have been toned down, and could not be taken as offensive anymore. Many of the sound bytes are repeated a lot, so some diversity in this area would be an improvement.

Winning Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader Make the Grade will take a lot of retries. Some questions are simple, and some are difficult. With over six thousand questions players can replay this game for a long time. The different multiplayer modes are also appreciated by this particular reviewer.

Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader Make the Grade controls perfectly. The little movies can be skipped, and the questions are accurate. I agree with Paul that most of the knowledge in this game is useless for real life, but whoever said academics are in touch with reality? I had fun playing this game, and it is better with two or more.

I really had no problem saying those eight words after losing a game, because I know intelligence is about more than memorization of un-needed data. Sequels are still welcome here.
