********REVIEW CONTEST REVIEW***********

Graphics: 10: The Jeopardy board looks like the one on TV and so do the question screens. You can pick from several digitized characters for your player. The greatest part is there are even FMV's of Alex Trebek introducing the game and ending it and saying whether you got the question right or wrong.

Sound: 10: All the sounds are from the TV show. The Jeopardy theme song is here. So are all the sound effects like the beep when nobody buzzes in to answer the question to the noise you get when you pick a Daily Double.

Game play: 10: You probably no what Jeopardy, the TV Show, is. If you don’t, I'll explain it for those ten to fifteen people: You answer questions for a value of money coming along Daily Doubles where you can pick how much money the question is worth. There's regular Jeopardy, then there’s Double Jeopardy where all point values are doubled and there’s Final Jeopardy where you risk as much money you have for one last question. The winner is the person with the most money at the end of the game. The game does add an interesting feature where you are spelling out the answer the game will finish spelling it out for you (I.E. if you typed "Willi" the game will spell out "Williams" so you don't have to bother spelling the rest out) this is a great feature so you won't have to worry about running out of time while you spell out your answer.

Replay Value: 10: You can play this game with up to three players so you play with all your friends. The game does last a little long though, so make sure you have a lot of time on your hands.

Overall: 10: The game is an exact replica of the TV show and plays well. It's too bad that Gametek went out of business and won't be releasing any more Jeopardy games(unless another Publisher picks up the rights) So this game might be a collectable so make sure to pick it up if you run across it.
