As much as I love this game I can't with a straight face reccomend it to get it on Steam. It's unforgivable how much the PC version lacks functionally compared to the console versions. 2-player max, no controller support, no DLC. BUT IT HAS ♥♥♥♥ING ACHIEVEMENTS. Oh boy! If you have a 360, a PS3, hell even a Wii don't bother, a console version of You Don't Know Jack is easily obtainable in your nearest bargain bin.

Apparently I have to give it a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. There's no option here to abstain. I mean, yeah, it's okay with another human player, but it WOULD be LOADS of fun if I could use controllers, configure or even view my controls, or play with more than just two people.
Those three issues are basically what's keeping me from recommending this game. I wouldn't pay $20 for it, but it's probably worth it if it goes on sale.
NOTE TO STEAM: This is NOT a negative review. It's a NEUTRAL review. Your options are too limited.
Really fun update to a classic from years ago... fun trivia, fun jokes/presentation... the only downer is that currently the only way to play head to head is on the same PC, next to each other. (This is not a total downer, as half of the fun is hearing your opponent yell things like, "I know this one!" while you beat them to the answer).
found it by "accident" because it seems to be available only in north america.
note: this game is NOT included in the "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK Classic Pack"!
and unlike the other "you dont know jack" steam releases, this one works fine and is optimized for new computers and operating systems. (screen resolution, sounds, animations...)
ITS A TON OF FUN and the jokes and questions are well thought out! well, honestly i had a hard time answering some of the questions, its not so easy for a non native english speaker, take it as a challenge ;)
you've got 73 episodes with different sets of questions to play, it will sure take a while to finish and master them all. after that the game probably gets a bit repetitive.
things that bother me about the game are: the missing online multiplayer feature (not even a global/friend leaderboard!), that would make the game a total blast, i would also love to see the game in other languages.... last but not least: there is local coop, but for 2 players only.
nonetheless: this "you dont know jack"-part is worth spending money on
I remember playing this game when I was a bit younger with my father (I believe that it was YDKJ 2), and laughing my ♥♥♥ off at the all of the stuff that was happening on screen, but at the same point... I also remember that I learned.
When I heard that there was a new version of this game out a while ago, I remember being quite excited for it, and I still am! I love this game, completely. There are still the hilarious antics, screwing like mad, but on top of that, there are the new features, such as the wrong answer of the game, and the "Episode Sponsers", which had me in hysterics for my own amount of time, but I still think back to that time before my father passed away and laugh every time I play this game and I think about him, and I still learn stuff!
The only downside that I can even remotely think about this game: There's no Ticklish Testgum.
