We bought this for fun with the family as we had heard good comments about it and I am pleased we did as it certainly is good family fun!

Buzz is a quiz game made for Playstations. Unlike other quiz games which we have had before this one is a much better quality and has a much better way of getting you to interact.

You play the game with controllers which you can buy along with the game or separately. These can be used with all of the Buzz games. They are easy to use, you just press the relevant coloured buttons or the big red button on the top. It's perfectly easy even for me!

The game consists of various rounds where you compete with others. Before playing you select your character and choose the buzzer sound of your choice. The Playstation will store this to memory so that when you play it again it will all be set up ready and your character will be waiting.

The rounds include things such as Pass The Bomb where you have to answer questions as quickly as possible before a bomb explodes. Fastest finger where you have to compete with other members to be the fastest to answer and point builder where you answer as many questions correctly as possible.

The quiz show host, Buzz, is a vibrant character who comes out with some amusing comments and helps the game to flow. He explains the rules and in a normal pace so you don't feel as though you are being patronised.

At the end of the game the winner is awarded a rather random prize which is always fun to see what it is.

The graphics are very bright. The setting is of a brightly coloured television studio so you do 'feel' as though you are on the quiz show.

The questions are varied so there is something for everyone. We play with all the family from friends and relatives of various ages and everyone enjoys it.

We play this on a regular basis with many people and we have found that it is always fun to engage in. We don't get bored of this probably because it';s different every time and the questions vary so much so you don't get the same one twice. I really enjoy it.

If you like quizzes and quiz shows then this is one game for you! All of the family can enjoy it, it's great for parties. There are various other ones too which are focussed on specific subjects such as music or the world and you can buy children's ones. Really recommend this, we all enjoy it.
