5.0 out of 5 stars Buzz Quiz TV. More to know ? 6 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At time of writing, for £3 more than the regular blisterpack version you get a much better presentation box, but thats not all. Its still a bit big to store your controllers in so i'd have liked to have seen the nice felt bag included. You get the National Geographic Safari Quiz (£4.99 on PSN) and the Video Games Quiz (£3.49 on PSN). Thats 1000 extra questions and a money saving. Wether the other bonuses are extra or not i don't know but it lists 4 crazy new contestants, 10 bonus buzzer noises, quickstart mode and of course the recently added trophies. The actual dvd game case shows the writing "Special Edition" so i'm going to assume it is an updated version of the game. Its really the bigger box and extra questions for the £3. I think its worth it... Now i must go play :)

4.0 out of 5 stars For gamers who still have a social life! 29 Jan 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This has to be one of the best social games going. We originally bought this for Boxing Day as an activity for when we had friends and family round . . . but we have found that we are using it a lot more since. Even on my own it is still great fun.

Working through obtaining the Playstation trophies is quite achievable as long as you are putting in quite a bit of playing time. Most are awarded for completing so many types of game, but the hardest one so far is to score more than 5000 in a single match. Very tough but achievable.

My only niggle is that it tends to get a little repetitive and unbalanced which is the only reason for not giving it the full 5 stars. Some of the matches could do with going on for a bit longer so maybe an option for the number of rounds played would be a good idea. But do not let that put you off buying this.

This is an absolute must for all PS3 owners who still have friends in the real world.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice party game 16 Mar 2009
By Ves
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Getting this game with the buzzer is a must. Your most likely to play this game with friends and/or family as there is where the most fun is.

A few things I found negative about the game was that the rounds can sometimes last very short. It feels that it has not been optimized for the PS3 but rather a system upgrade.
Also there is no clear statement from SCEE that if you buy a different version (language) then you playStation Store the add-ons might not work.

All in all this game is a great party game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buzz TV - More than just a game? 12 Aug 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this as I enjoy quizzes and wanted something to play with friends when they came round that was SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) friendly!

First Up...the box is Massive! I took down a wall in the house and had it winched onto the bookcase. But it does contain a lot.

1 game
4 controllers
4 sets of batteries
1 USB receiver

All this allows you to play the game straight out of the box without needing to buy anything else. Time to start the game!

The whole game can be controlled via a Buzz remote. These are wireless and use the receiver. They appear to have plenty of range and also the batteries included have lasted a long time.

You can choose to play against other people in your living room (a great fun game with comedy characters!) or you can challenge people all over the world - The Sofa Challenge!)

There are thousands of questions in the game and I'm yet to have a repeat. It is interesting that the rounds you play when you are with friends aren't exactly the same as the ones on-line. Included on-line is a 'all that apply' game in which you see the opponents answers....but he might be lying and remove some at the last moment! An additional twist that adds to the excitement of on-line play.

There is another side to Buzz TV which is that you can create your own questions and upload these so other people play them! I've played a few of the games people have created and although there are some easy game e.g.
What is 3+2?
a) 5
b) 9
c) 11
d) A baboon
It does have some great rounds with harder questions and it is easy to find quiz-set in subjects you like (Simpsons/Movies/TV/Soaps/Music), with specific questions existing for bands and movie-stars alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fun 13 April 2009
By wicket2005 VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son, who has a XBox 360 and a quiz game on that, introduced me to the world of console quizzes and I so much enjoyed playing his game I thought I would buy one for my PS3.

I decided on this edition of Buzz as it is actually such good value for money and is the cheapest price I could find on the net and in town. It is actually cheaper than the standard edition. As well as having its own box to store the controllers it does come with two extra quiz packs (Safari and Video Games) which are about 4 pounds each online.

The game play is so like a normal tv quiz show complete with the music and the over the top quiz host. The show consists of playing a few different heats from quickest finger to pass the bomb before hitting the final countdown round. As there are a variation in games it makes it good fun to play as you progress through the show.

Four people can play and you can also play online which again is great fun and has a slightly different format. We all thought is was fantastic and can see us playing it for many year' to come.

On the Playstation store you can purchase other quiz packs, with price ranges from 4 to 7 pounds. The latter price being the newest packs.

This game is ideal for families with older children or grown up children. I don't think a lot of young kids would be able to answer some of the questions but then it would help improve their general knowledge if they played with a parent.

We just loved it and it is a must for any PS3 collection.
