"Jack is the first game since Tetris that I've
trashed off my desktop out of fear that I'd never get another lick of work
done. And it proves you don't need rendered photorealistic texture mapping or
actors filmed against blue screens to make a great title. It's a trivia game
for one to three players that somehow intertwines subjects like the continental
drift with The Brady Bunch with twists like 'Screw Your Neighbor' and
'Don't Be a Wimp.' The developer, Jellyvisions, provides hysterical writing, a
great game-show host, classy animation and smooth sound to make a game that's a
Computer Gaming World, February 1996
"...what we've needed is a game that takes this semi-sacred
cow of American pop culture and makes burger patties of it. And boy do we get
it in You Don't Know Jack, a diamond-sharp satire of every game show you
ever watched. It's all there, from the unctuousness of the host to the
smarminess of the music and the pressure-molded look of the screen. Everything
is Turtle Waxed to a high gloss, right down to the closing credits, which
include dead-on skewerings of cereal and toy commercials."
"You Don't Know Jack may displease those who don't
enjoy giggly frat-house innuendo, either out of prudishness or maturity...I,
however, just love giggly frat-house innuendo and laughed myself sick playing
this game. All the game show spoofs 'Saturday Night Live' has ever run and all
the hipper-than-thou game shows MTV has concocted wish they were this good.
Uh-uh. This is the real thing; they don't know Jack."
Computer Player, July 1996
"...they'll soon be immersed in a thoroughly enjoyable,
computer trivia game that has more than 1,200 humility-inducing questions."
