For some reason THQ asks if you’re smarter than a fifth grader

Shortly after the hit TV show hits FOX on September 5th, THQ is bringing Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader: Make the Grade to the Nintendo DS, Wii, PlayStation 2, Xbox Live Arcade, Windows PC, PC Download, 3DO, Jaguar, and Super Nintendo Entertainment System this October. The TV show has already been hailed as the singularly greatest achievement in the history of the human race, so the game is sure to follow that path as well.

Make the Grade will be hosted by a virtual Jeff Foxworthy, who will ask you questions in over 23 elementary subjects. If you get a question wrong, guess what that means? It means you might be a redneck, silly!

The Nintendo DS version of the game has 3,000 new questions, while the Live Arcade, Wii, PS2, and PC incarnations will have over 6,000. And if you burn through all of those questions, you’re crazy and actually bought Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader.
