"Not bad, but has it's limitations"
Easy, engaging game play; has the feel of the game show, with the same theme music and sound effects; computer-controlled characters adjust to keep the game competitive.
You can't customize your character very well; character graphics and animation quality is poor; no voice of Alex Trebek; answers are multiple-choice
This is an easy-to-play basic trivia game. It's a good game when you want to take a few minutes and relax. Though it carries the Jeopardy name, theme song and sound effects, it differs from the TV show in that you do not answer the questions free-form. Instead you pick from a multiple choice list. Years ago, I played a version that required typing the answer. That was frustrating because you would sometimes lose an answer due to misspelling a word. I would think that a better option would be to let the user choose multiple choice or traditional-style answers. The AI engine could be made good enough to figure out most variations of people's typing.
If you don't mind that limitation, then game play will be fine for you.
Another big complaint is the character graphic quality and animation are really sub-standard for any game made in the last five years. The character rendering is somewhat polygonal and the animations are really robotic. The way the characters clap is really unnatural and even out of sync with the sound effects.
You can customize your character, but the customization options are very limited. You have a choice of only a few hair styles, colors and skin colors and even fewer basic characters. If you are expecting customization like the Sims, you will be severely disappointed. If you were hoping to create a character that even looks kind of like yourself, chances are you'll be unlucky as well.
The bottom-line is that this game works as a basic, multiple-choice trivia game, but falls far short as a replication of the TV show. If you were hoping to play Jeopardy! as though you were on TV, you won't find it here.
