BUZZ! QUIZ WORLD

Sony
PS3 (also on PSP)

The oddly proportioned Muppet-wannabe that sounds suspiciously like Jase Donovan (‘cos it is) returns – and this time he’s brought his ‘A’ game.

The third incarnation of the trivia franchise to hit Sony’s PS3 could be described as a reboot. Whilst Quiz TV and Brain of Oz were fun, they were limited options-wise, and just getting around was kinda clunky. They were pretty much ports of the original PS2 game, and it showed. Not so with Quiz World, where we get what we should have all along – a really solid, really-fun-for-anybody-with-a-pulse trivia game that takes advantage of the PS3.

If you’re not Buzz!-aware, it’s a quiz presented as a TV show that’s kind of a melange of Sale of the Century and Eddie McChins’ thang. Up to eight players (just part of the new additions) compete through various rounds, some dependent upon speed, others smarts and some on sheer flukiness.

Faves like ‘Pie Fight’ and ‘Pass the Bomb’ return, along with several new rounds and a more varied array of categories. It’s even been localised, so don’t be surprised if a question on AFL pops up.

Neat touches include personalisation – so Buzz says your name (if it’s included) – and customisation, so you can choose which rounds to play. Online is improved, with seamless access to quizzes you’ve created, or those that others – many seemingly illiterate – have cobbled together.

Single player is virtually nonexistent, but that’s not what Buzz! is about. Get some mates around, knock a few back and enjoy – not just competing, but abusing that smart-arse bloody puppet!

take me back to the start...
