In Jeopardy! for the PlayStation, your goal is to answer as many questions as you can in six different categories. Each category has five answers ranging from $100 to $500 in cash value; answer correctly and the sum will be added to your totals.
The second round doubles the money and ends with a Final Jeopardy! category, where players can wager as much of their earnings as they want in an attempt to best their two opponents.
Over 3,500 answers (created by the writers of the television show) are included along with video clips and speech from host Alex Trebek. Before playing, you can "draw" your name on the monitor using either the pad or analog stick.
Players can choose between either a normal or speed game, with the latter allowing them to go straight to Double Jeopardy! Other features include a high resolution mode, Johnny Gilbert as announcer, Video Daily Doubles, adjustable buzz-in and response times, adaptive AI (the computer opponent tries to keep its score close to the highest scoring human player), and an answer completion option that forms words after you type in a few letters.
Find the competition lacking? Not only can the computer's skill level be adjusted from easy to hard, but spell tolerance can be tweaked in five increments from loose to strict. The game will also save question progress and the top three scores to memory card. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
