Knowledge is Power – Decades
Top Critic Average
Knowledge is Power: Decades is how not to do a sequel. The premise is still fun, but should only be purchased if you can't get access to the original.
Knowledge Is Power: Decades is still the solid quiz game that its predecessor was, but other than that it's hard to argue a case for its existence. The visual style is fun and appealing, but the format is still too light on questions and there's not much in this year's edition that wasn't already in the original. It certainly does its job, but not much else.
Knowledge is Power: Decades is a fun trivia game that, like its predecessor, wasn't meant to be a longterm experience. It serves its purpose, brings some fun trivia (sometimes difficult trivia) to the forefront, and delivers a bit more variety when it comes to special moves in the game. It doesn't try to change things too much from what made it work the first time around, so don't expect something drastically different.
A funny version of the oriignal title, with few interesting new elements.

Knowledge is Power: Decades is a cool game to gather family and friends, and play Q & A, from new wave from the 80's to the name of the latest FIFA narrator. Playlink is a very practical game mode if you have more people to play with you! I am worried if the game will have updates with new content, because in 8 matches I've found repeated questions and the narrative in general is tiring. Despite the improvements, I didn't understand the reason for a new one with so little difference from the first one.

As a stand-alone title, Knowledge is Power: Decades is fine. The mechanics taken from the first game still hold up well enough, and the small improvements give the game some more depth, such as the ability to remove power-ups and the new modes that remove trivia questions or challenge rounds. The easy and straightforward questions and the small selection of available decades make this feel like it should be DLC instead of a full-fledged game. Decades is a better purchase if you didn't pick up the first game, as owners of that are better off waiting for a big sale before adding this to the rotation.
If Knowledge is Power: Decades featured interesting and challenging questions and more steadily-paced gameplay then it would have been a solid trivia game.
