Reviews:

New Media, January 29, 1996

"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 blast."

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."
