Customer Review

on 14 May 2007
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.
