Product Description

Buzz! goes next-gen with Buzz!: Quiz TV on PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3), developed by Relentless Software. The quiz title that transforms your home into a TV game show studio is already loved around the globe - but now, thanks to PLAYSTATION Network (PSN), the whole world becomes a quiz show as you go online to pit your quiz skills against the best on offer. If previous Buzz! titles have been individual gameshows, this is a whole TV network. Buzz!: Quiz TV gives you instant access to almost any subject you can think of, and will be supported by vast downloadable and user-generated content. If there was ever a time to pick up Buzz!’s famous quiz show buzzer controllers, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top family entertainment! 9 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before owning a PS3, Buzz! on PS2 never really appealed to me - after buying the main game, additional quizzes were a hefty £20 each - this would mean a spend of nearly £200 to have all quizzes available, not to mention the spaghetti of tangled wires from the controllers!

This PS3 version can be picked up for as little as £35 WITH the 4 wireless controllers if you shop around.

I would strongly suggest getting your PS3 online with this game as, not only does it (obviously) enable you to play other people even when no-one else in the household fancies a game, but, more importantly the online functionality provides you with (free) updates. To date this has meant another 4 playable characters (Napoleon, Mexican Wrestler, Female Vampire and Cavewoman) and additional outfits for the original characters too.

You can also download additional quizzes from the PSN site at prices between £3.50 to £4.99 - VERY reasonable compared to the previous PS2 additional discs costing up to 6 times that.

You can also write your own quizzes and upload them to the site so that anyone out there can also play your quiz! This is a great feature for niche interests.

Buzz! now utilises the PS3 Trophy system too, so that you can gain bragging rights against your friends as to who has unlocked the most in-game awards.

On the downside, it's a shame the quiz formats are a little stale after a while - point builder, pass the bomb, fastest finger, pie fight, high stakes and then the final round - same thing everytime. It would be nice if a download patch had some new formats for quiz rounds, but maybe that will come.

As for playing online with others, it's fastest finger, all that apply and then high stakes and then it's over after 18 questions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but flawed 4 July 2008
By Qmoq

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is another fine game in the Buzz canon, though it's not perfect. The main flaws are:

1. The online quizzes are only 8 questions long. Actually, this isn't as bad as it first seems; the length is something you get used to; but the largest flaw is that you can't link together several quizzes to form a lengthy one. Sometimes you're in the mood for a 100 question quiz, but you have no choice - it's only 8 questions from online content.

2. Another annoying flaw with the online mode is that there's no quick-start - you have to go through the name/buzzer/character options each time. As the quizzes are so short, this quickly becomes tiresome.

3. In offline mode, there's no choice about the length of game or difficulty of questions.

4. There are few options - no QuizMaster, no Quick Quiz

Having said all that, it's the usual wonderfully addictive Buzz, and the quality of online quizzes is surprisingly good so far... though not perfect: Pluto is not a planet!

I've heard rumours of patches to improve Buzz - whether these will fix the flaws, I'm not sure. If they do, this could be the PS3 game with the longest lifetime of all. As it is, it's merely very good indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buzz is missing the point 13 July 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a big fan of BUZZ on the PS2. When I heard that a PS3 version was forthcoming it made me think of endless opportunities to expand the series. Alas, when I played it, I was let down and here's why.

1. As previously mentioned on reviews, the content is fixed. By this I mean you can't shorten or lengthen your quiz games like before. This makes your games robotic and boring. By the time someone says "I'm catching you up, watch out", you've finished the quiz.

2. Online is a good feature, but under explored. The MyBuzz community only allows 8 questions per game? How can that entertain a family of four? When playing three other players online you get 4 rounds and no real chance to show off your knowledge.

3. With Blu-Ray holding so much data, why are most of the 5000 questions just text and narration. Hardly any video clips.....if any, and the music round is poor in comparison to the PS2 version.

4. A big plus point is the wireless buzzers. Stops loads of wires from getting tied up everytime you put the game away.

I sincerely hope that the software house read these reviews and give some of us hope that a few decent add-ons are likely to be put into the PS3 community. It had so much potential, but I think someone's rushed the release without thinking of the target audience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 17 July 2008
By Me
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Given the major possibilities opened up by next-gen gaming, Buzz Quiz TV is a major let-down. OK, so the graphics are in high-definition and very polished, and the controllers have now gone wireless, but the actually gameplay and the variety of games on offer have actually been diminished.

Whereas before you had options to customise the length of game, now you are stuck. Rather than a large selection of changing games, you now always get the same set for multiplayer, the same game for single player and the same set of three (and not the best) for the online game.

You might have expected more characters, more customisable options, more questions (although you can purchase more game packs online for extra money), more video and music questions, but alas none of these have made it.

So, having played the PS2 versions, the game is a disappointment. But does the game stand up on its own? Well, even if you'd never played the PS2 version, I suspect you will still find this game repetitive and disappointing.

It hasn't been well thought out, and appears to have been rushed. Who knows though, perhaps the game can be improved over time thanks to downloadable updates.

Really good entertaining game, questions are pretty wide ranging but it would appeal more if the actual length of the quiz was a few rounds longer and the format more varied. Read more
