True or False 2 Review

2 False 2 Furious

Did you know that the first fruit eaten on the moon was a peach?

Or that more people live in Tokyo than the entirety of Canada?

Do you enjoy learning about seemingly random, but nevertheless interesting nuggets of trivia, but can’t afford a board game as fancy as Trivial Pursuit?

If all signs point to yes, then True or False 2 might be a worthwhile option for your considerations, though it’s hard to wholeheartedly recommend when there are a ton of decent trivia apps currently available on mobile devices for free.

The nine levels on offer, which each provides around a dozen True or False questions, can all be completed relatively quickly, and the non-existence of any other features like an online leaderboard results in a pretty barebones experience.

The questions themselves are well researched and up to date, there’s even a question about La La Land, and the revealed answer will always tell you more information about the subject.

They’re not so difficult in that they appear obtuse and elitist, in the way that some classic trivia games are, but aren’t so easy and obvious enough that it becomes an unengaging bore.

I will say that it feels a little weird to play a True or False game by myself, and the lack of any multiplayer options is a shame, but I guess you could turn True or False 2 into a party game with some self-initiated rules.

True or False 2 may also offer value to Steam achievement hunters or trading card collectors, since the game offers them by the barrel load. There is literally an achievement for answering every single question correctly, and you’ll be able to nab yourself all 100 of them within a short space of time.

While the background music is quite delightful, the mostly static visuals – each round is accompanied by the appearance of a different animal, for some reason – are significantly less interesting. Some images or animations to signify different questions and answers might have helped keep the proceedings a little more enjoyable beyond the main hook of the trivia itself.

“Do you enjoy learning about seemingly random, but nevertheless interesting nuggets of trivia?”

Honestly, I can’t really fault True or False 2 all that much, especially considering its super cheap pricing. There’s not a huge amount to jump into here, but it certainly does what it says on the tin, at least for an hour or so. There are better trivia games out there, but True or False 2 is a perfectly fine piece of ‘trivia-lite’ that will educate you in some appropriately weird facts and figures.

Score: 57/100
