Trivial Pursuit





Trivial Pursuit 


Trivial Pursuit is a well known board game that families all over the world have enjoyed. I initially thought that the home console version of this game would instantly score in the mid to upper nineties. Unfortunately for this game, I am very thorough. I used the Wii version for this review after finding it on clearance at a store. This game is also on the Xbox 360, Playstation 2, and Playstation 3. Electronic Arts included various modes in case the normal mode bores you. There are also ways to customize this game towards your particular skills. Be sure to clear some time to play this game because it can take hours to complete one game.

There are some really high points to the graphics in Trivial Pursuit. The presentation shines, and makes this feel like an interactive board game. There are also some low points in this game. I noticed certain pictures like statues of naked human beings. This is not everywhere but young people commented on it. I also noticed it. To be honest it stuck out like a sore thumb, and this game could have been so much better without it.

The music in Trivial Pursuit compliments the game nicely. I wound up turning the sound down because of the comments by the game’s host. He is trying to be humorous, but wound up irritating certain members of the family who were trying hard. Not everyone is going to know all of the information contained in this game. A more positive attitude from the host would have helped this game tremendously.

Hours can be spent playing this game. Thankfully there are lots of places where this game saves. So you can continue your game later. Different modes, and up to four players rounds out the extras nicely. Trivial Pursuit can get addicting.

I have some real issues with the game play in Trivial Pursuit. Rolling the dice to get the right wedges can become very annoying. Then finally getting to the right spot only to miss a question is highly disheartening. I lost track of how many games I wanted someone to win so we could be done with it.

Initially I thought Trivial Pursuit would be a great family game. There were some questions that all of us found odd. One was the closest relatives to dinosaurs that we are still puzzling over. Last I heard the whole bird theory was publicly discredited. Families can learn all kinds of information from Trivial Pursuit. But that leads me to question who compiles the information, and defines it as truth.
