[PC] You Don't Know Jack - crippled version compared to consoles

Recommended Posts

IGN gave it 6.0 out of 10

and reviews on amazon.com are not good for the PC version

 

 

Basically the game that started off on the PC and attaining its cult status there, will be getting a crippled version compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

 

Consoles: 4 player local

PC: 2 player local

 

Consoles: online multiplayer

PC: Local only

 

Consoles: DLC available

PC: none.

 

... even the original version from 1995 supported 3 players.

This seems like a huge step backwards. Great way to shaft the fans.

 

They obviously don't think much of PC gamers either.

 

 

Loved the ones from back in the day. The game always stuck with me and any fan will remember the gibberish questions.

I'm very disappointed.

 

I'm undecided if I want to buy the console version or not.

I remember the original way back in the day, and actually played it on a Mac before anything else. Many a fun time was had with mates and the multiplayer. Very disappointing that this is the road they're now going down.

Thing is that YDKJ has a very different feel to regular trivia games. The questions are presented quite differently to regular trivia games and you won't get the answer until you work out the underlying question.

Reb1rth.: Those that played the original back in the 90s would buy it. I mentioned the game somewhere else and a heap of nostalgia flooded the post. All PC gamers.

You used to be able to play a shortened version on the YDKJ website, but they have shut that down now. Shame, was good fun.

 

Might look at the new release, but only after the reviews are in.

Why can't we get decent game across all platforms without developers creating crippled monstrosities with just alienate formerly loyal customers.
