"Fastest Finger First"

I have recently been finding myself pretty much bored and fed up with the ammount of garbage available for the PC and the PS2. All the games are of the same ilk and playing one is pretty much the same as playing the other. So you can imagine my excitement when my son bought BUZZ. Something different most definately, fun.......again most definately.

Well we all like to think of ourselves as smarty pants especially when it comes to music. for some strange the reason the competitivness is far more important when it comes to answering questions on music. Of course we all remember the classics, but can you remember who wrote them or who produced them. Can you even recall the line in the middle that has become part of our culture. All these questions will be answered and more should you decide to buy and play BUZZ.

Buzz is a Playstation game which comes with four controllers which are used to BUZZ in the answer. There are various catagories in the game and there are a varying ammount of rounds depending on how many players are playing.

Questions are posed on the sceen and basically the first to BUZZ gets the option to answer. You can choose from a variety of characters to play all with their own quirky sayings and doings. From the initial Start when BUzz introduces the game you are on the edge of your seat ready to thrash the opposition.

The compare and charaters are all cartoony and are a lot of fun, but as with any quiz the questions and gameplay are essential to having a good time. The questions vary in difficulty and span through many decades and music types. There is undoubtedly something in here for everyone, and the buzzers just add that little bit of excitement.

One of the Rounds in the game is called pass the Bomb. A bomb is passed round with a time fuse burning away, you must answer a question before you can pass the bomb on to the next player. If you are unfortunate enough to be unable to answer the questions you get wasted by the bomb and you lose..................simple but fun, just like electronic pass the parcel with a twist.

Througout the game we are guided by Jenny our hostess who at the beginning asks a few questions to determine what length and type of game you are going to play. You can choose different outfits so that you look pretty good when you are awarded one of the Top Prizes of a car or holiday or DVD player.

The object of the game is to get as many points as possible to beat your opponents. In some rounds there are penalties for buzzing in to quick with a wrong answer, and on the Offloader round it is important to guess correctly who you think DOES NOT KNOW THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION.

It is available in most shops which sell Playstation games and costs in the region of £15.99. Shop around there is always a bargain to be found somewhere.

All in all this game in a tremendous ammount of fun, and with plenty questions to keep you and your busy for ages. As of yet i have not managed to win a game since being a know-all who knows nothing I tend to lose more points buzzing in too quickly with wrong answers. I do love it though and have a great deal of fun participating, as i think you will too...................HAVE FUN
