Billed as "The Irreverent Quiz Show Party Game" on the box, You Don't Know Jack Volume 4: The Ride is a quirky game show that you'll never see on television. The Ride is different from other versions of You Don't Know Jack in that instead of choosing your category before getting your questions, you are given a topic for all the questions in the game.
On the other hand, the game is similar to all others in the series in terms of the host's irreverent abuse of players. If you do not get a question right or if you do anything else deemed stupid by the computer host, you will be the target for humiliation, all in good fun. Even if you get a question correct, there is still the possibility of getting slathered by the host.
You Don't Know Jack Volume 4: The Ride contains over 800 new questions, five hosts (all returnees from the original series) and multi-player capability of up to three contestants, human or computer controlled. For fans of the series, a bonus CD is included in the package: You Don't Hear Jack which is a compilation of commercial parodies and other audio tracks from previous games.
In the end, no matter what you know or what you don't know, you may discover still that You Don't Know Jack! ~ Joshua Hoffman, All Game Guide
