Tired of "You Don't Know Jack"?
Bored with "Who wants to be a Millionaire?"

With Buzz! Quiz TV, you'll never need another trivia game for your Playstation 3.

Inside the box is the game, four wireless controllers and a USB dongle. The dongle can connect up to 4 controllers, 2 dongles can be used to connect up to 8 players in one room. Two AA batteries are needed for each buzzer.

The instructions for turning the buzzers on and off are included in the game manual. For the less tech-savvy, the Buzz! website has a 5-page PDF file which explains how the buzzers work.

Buzz! can be played alone, with friends, or online.

The following categories are selectable for Buzz! games:
(1) All types
(2) Movies & TV only
(3) Brainiac only
(4) Sports only
(5) Lifestyle only
(6) MyBuzz! questions

There is the option to choose "Mature" MyBuzz quizzes (online only), view online leaderboards, or test the Buzz! buzzers.

So what rounds are available?

For the single player, there are 3 rounds of "Stop the Clock" - the faster the player answers a question, the more points are awarded.

In multiplayer mode, a single game consists of 7 rounds:

(1) Point Builder - Players answer questions with a time limit, each answer is worth 250 points.
(2) Short Fuse - A random player gets a bomb and must answer a question correctly to pass it. The player holding the bomb when it goes off loses 300 points.
(3) Fastest finger - The player who answers a question the fastest receives more points.
(4) Pie Fight - Answering correctly grants control of the host to throw a pie at your opponents - if hit with 2 pies, a player is eliminated.

Pros: Great variety of questions, nice level of difficulty in questions, wireless buzzers work great, game interface is fun & easy to use.

Cons: Character models are a little generic, lack of variety in in-game question modes.

This is my first experience with the Buzz! game series, and so far it's been very enjoyable. My wife and I invited over another couple, and we played multiple games of 4 player head-to-head matches. The questions are just about the right diffuculty, with some being easy, while others were stumpers. With 4 buzzers going, it's nice that they were all wireless, although you'll have to make sure you buy a bunch of AA batteries to power all of them. We also jumped online to check out some of the top-rated user-created quizzes. These are shorter than the regular game mode (8 questions each), but it is a nice change of pace if you don't want to play the full game.
A few nitpicks; I would've liked to make my own custom character, which is a standard feature in many other games. As it is, you get to choose from about a dozen characters, pick an outfit, and that's it. Also, the game show follows the same format each time, meaning the it has the same series of sections as the game progresses (pie fight, fastest finger, etc)...we felt it could have mixed in a few other modes so that the experience is slightly different each time, and you wouldn't know which mode to expect as the game progresses.
But these are minor complaints, and overall this game was a lot of fun for a few 30-year-olds. grab a few beers, order a pizza, and spend a night inside throwing pies at your friends and family.

Buzz! Quiz TV *can* be played as single player game or online as a multi-player game, but I would discourage anyone from buying it unless there will be evenings where you can play it as a group of people sharing the same physical place. I think that's about the only scenario that will make this a decent purchase.

Visually, the game is rendered in High Definition, so it looks bright and crisp on your screen. I don't have any complaints in that area. My primary disappointment is that it's sort of what you'd expect after hearing about the game. It's a quiz show in your living room using your PS3. There just doesn't seem to be a next level of creativity involved that would make it stand out.

You can write your own trivia questions, try out other user's trivia question, but the interface isn't as easy to you as I wanted.

My suggestion? Try before you buy.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Whenever I have friends over for a party, invariably we end up playing some type of trivia game, usually while imbibing our drink of choice. In fact, it's become a tradition at parties to break out a console and get our trivia game face on. I love trivia questions, as do my friends. Usually, we've gravitated to the Scene It? series on the Xbox 360, but that changed when I received Buzz! Quiz TV.

On the surface, Quiz TV is basically your typical game show brought to virtual life. There's nothing super exciting about it. You just answer questions. Sometimes questions are asked after looking at various pictures; sometimes it's a movie clip; sometimes it's an audio clip. But it's always the same thing: a question is asked and you want to be the quickest to answer. The categories are very wide-ranging, from the biggest blockbusters to different periods of music (90s, 80s, modern, oldies, etc.) to scientific questions to geographical questions...Buzz! Quiz TV has it all. And with 5,000 questions out of the box and more available online, there's a ton of replayability inherent in the game.

What makes Quiz TV unique and more entertaining than other similar games (Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action, I'm looking at you) is the wink and nudge, smarmy humor encapsulated in the host. Buzz, the host, has that voice that can only be described as smarmy and says provocative things. But it's all done with a wink and a laugh, a send up and parody of some of the really bad game shows hosts out there. Additionally, while you can't create your own character, the selection of available avatars is terrific and, again, full of character. Whether you're playing as a mime who strikes poses, the cheesy and egotistical super hero, or the 80s-style mall rocker, there's a lot of humor to be had.
