One of the most celebrated, longest running television game shows of all time is now available for you to play on your computer!

Family Feud Review
Review by Dylan
Family Feud is a classic survey and answer game that has you thinking on your feet to provide the most suitable answers for the different categories, while racing a timed clock. The game is broken into 4 rounds with increasing point value. In it you compete head-to-head against either the computer or a second player. This game's play is similar to the popular TV game show and is worth your time.
Single or Multiplayer Feuding
In Family Feud you compete against other players to answer questions more accurately and quickly. The multiplayer mode has you and a friend duking it out, coming up with answers to popular survey questions. In the multiplayer mode you and your competitor both pick team names and you are referred to as different families. You compete head to head in four rounds with increasing point value and the first to 300 points advances to the “Fast Money” bonus round for a chance to win an additional 20,000 points. This game has you raking your brain for the right answers while simultaneously making you anxious because of the time constraints.
As far as rules and objectives are concerned the multiplayer mode is identical to the TV game show. The only drawback of multiplayer is the non-existent online play. Rather than matching up against random players throughout the world, you are forced to either play a friend on the same computer or against the computer. Online capabilities would open this game up to endless possibilities, making it much more competitive and enjoyable.
If You've Seen the TV Show, You Know What to Expect
The rounds of Family Feud are almost identical to the actual game show if you've seen that before. There are four rounds. In each you need to come up with the most common answers to a question that was posed to 100 people. Questions may be along the lines of, “We surveyed 100 people and asked them to give us the most common words or phrases that comes after the word 'hot'.” You then type your responses in hopes of uncovering all the answers. “Hot Dog” might be a response, along with “Hot Tamale” or “Hot Tub.”
The difficulty level determines how much time you have to give an answer. On the hardest setting you have 12 seconds to come up with and type your answer. The easiest setting gives you 30 seconds. This should be plenty of time for even the slowest typers. The first two rounds are worth 100 points while third doubles the point value, and the fourth round gives you three times the points. This increase in scoring is helpful, especially if you have a bad round in one or two. After regulation the winner (first to 300 in multiplayer or biggest score in single player) advances to the Fast Money round for a chance to win 20,000 points.
Again if you've seen the game show you should be well prepared for Fast Money. In this round you have 2 turns to answer 5 questions. You must have a combined score of over 200 points in this round to win and collect the big prize. The game gets its title “Fast Money” from the time constraints you face. In the first round you have 40 seconds to read and answer 5 questions. This may seem easy in reading, but the added pressure in the moment, especially with the music, makes this a tough feat. After the 40 seconds, your answers are scored and the next round begins. The next round is easier because you are already exposed to the questions and you have an additional 5 seconds. You again answer the same questions, this time with different responses, and your answers are scored. If your totals from both rounds add up to over 200 you win the bonus and the game is over.
Despite all the things that make it great, Family Feud does have a few minor flaws. None of these flaws are giant problems, however, improving upon them would make the game better. It would be great to have the announcer read the questions aloud. Individually reading the questions may slow players down. Some might also find it extremely stressful having to read, process what they just read, and give an intelligent response within the time restraints. Announcing the questions would help alleviate this problem as well as bring about a more game show-like feel.
Not having an online multiplayer mode is also a limiting factor of this game. Playing against the computer in single player can become tedious. Also, it does not give you that sense of competition playing against others can give you. An online mode would make this game have more depth, thus making it more enjoyable to play.
Conclusion - We Say "Play the Feud!"
Overall, this download of Family Feud is a great game that makes you think. Any fan of the TV game show must play this. The actions and puzzles are almost identical to that on TV and the excitement you experience is comparable to the families you watch compete. If you aren't familiar with the game show you still need to give this a chance. It's a word game that has you thinking on your feet in pressure situations. This is definitely worth your time and it will keep you playing for hours on end.
