Firstly I would like to confirm that this is the best Buzz game for the allround player. It combines both music, movie and general knowledge questions.

The scoring system has been improved and there is also a stats summary such as % of right answers and fastest player.

There are a number of additional characters to choose from but the originals still remain the best (although the old lady does get a few laughs!)

The format has been slightly tweaked, there are a few new rounds such as pie fight (similar to hitman) and a select a category round which is a good as each person gets to choose a topic (TV, film, music, sport etc)

My main reason for buying the game was for 8 player action. This was very dissappointing on the Big Quiz version as you could not play a whole standard game. This has been partly corrected for this installment but it is by no means perfect.

The 8 player standard game does not include all types of rounds and the end of the quiz is such an anti climax. All points gained in previous rounds are transferred into lives for a pie fight round which is essentially a game of hitman. The end result is that the person who was winning gets 4 lives whilst say the worst player gets 2 lives. This then results in the guy with 4 lives being singled out by everyone and elliminated first. Also this final round is more focused on speed as the first to get the answer right gets to eliminate someone else. This tends to result in people who dont know the answer guessing really quickly and getting questions righta and elliminating people who know the answer.

As a 1-4 player game this game is great and I recommend it. If you are after the 5-8 player game that the original should have been then you may be dissapointed.

I thoroughly enjoyed Buzz the music quiz and set out slowly to get the set. So far (Hollywood is on its way) this one is my favourite!
8 players can play along now which is great and its so easy to show everyone what you do and how to do it - the Buzzers are so easy to use everyone can do it.
The rounds themselves are much improved. I particularly enjoyed the round in which you pick a country and answer a question on it and the winner chooses the next country. Also getting a pie in your face is the oldest trick in the book but still provides entertainment when your in a large group. The new final round "The Final Countdown" though may be a bit too random. It basically converts all your points until then to time and then your time ebbs away while you answer the questions in the round. If your the first one to get it right though you gain time and I found on 2 player games it barely matters what you did on the other rounds as this round just makes it so topsy turvy. Some may say its a good thing but I've still got my jury out on that.
A good tip though is to pop your memory card in while you play and that generally stops repeat questions coming up every so often although I have to say I've not had that many so far.
This is my favourite Buzz to date so if you're looking for the best quiz game of general knowledge then definitely go for this one. (500 points for me please!)

Buzz is a fun game for all the family, perfect for a night in or a wet day. Suitable for all the family, this game is very entertaining!

We play as a family of four, but you can play upto 8 players.

Choosing your own character is really fun, characters vary from an Elvis to an Old Lady to Marilyn Monroe. You also choose your own quiz name, you could either make up a hilarious name or just use your name. You also choose your buzz noice, which has a big selection.

The game has a lot of rounds, consisting questions of General Knowledge, Film & Tv, Sport, Music & More!

The battle commences and each player tries to win the top spot, and of course, the winner recieves a prize!! This could be a horse, a jacuzzi or plenty of other smart things.. But they arent real!!

Play It or Miss out. Great for a family & friends night in or a family wet day :)

Hope this helps x

As we already had the original Buzz and have played it a lot, we decided we wanted another one. We have a family aged between 7 - 12 which it is suitable for all ages. It is a game where interaction is required, Which we all enjoy

I have been buying the Buzz series for the last 3 years for my family as a christmas present, I have found that bthey bring the family together & enable us to have fun at the same time
I did find with the wider choice of subjects I could compete with the rest of the family on a more equal basis, but sadly will never win on Fastest Finger First ever again
I would recommend for a present for the family to bring together but be prepared for the competeiveness to come out as they get used to the game

this buzz game is not as good as some of the others but its enjoyable all the same.its the last of the buzz games to come out of the ps2 before they changed it to ps3 so i did expect some big changes but it just the same as the older versions which is not a bad thing really.if you enjoy playing buzz games then they is no reason why you won't enjoy this one.

This game is loads of fun for all the family as there are different topics & you can choose from easy, medium & hard games. Probably best for children 10 years and above, but you can play in teams also. This purchase was a reccommendation to a friend & her family also found it fun!

Bought to play after family dinners; its great fun and come out after every big occasion, simply and interactive causing much mirth and silliness.

Great fun, especially with more people (and perhaps the introduction of some beverages and real fun prizes for winners of a round etc). Buy them all!!

A great family game, played here by 11 - 54 yr olds, all able to contribute answers. A great alternative to the traditional board game at Christmas.
