Great Game

Being that the PS3 is such a powerful machine I would expect that Buzz! Quiz TV would amp up the visuals, and in the end they definitely do. The game is very clean looking and the whole atmosphere is very game show like. Buzz has never looked better as he can now take advantage of the added horsepower in the PS3. The game show set really did look like it was a game show on TV from the flashy vides screens behind Buzz to the audience who are barely visible as they are shrouded in the shadows behind the contestants. Buzz! Quiz TV is a trivia game show that is hosted by none other then Buzz himself. The game show has different types of rounds for up to eight players offline, and four players online, to test their knowledge in. Should you not have any friends to play with at the time you can go solo. You can choose from one of 15 available characters. From what I understand that this is up from an initial number of 11 and is accomplished with a patch that you download when you first start the game up.

Once you have your chosen your character, you pick a sound for your buzzer. You also get to choose an individual buzzer sound from a large selection of choices, and although I was somewhat worried that they could get annoying they are actually pretty suitable and make for a bit of individuality given that each character can have a different buzzer sound from the others. The character's that are available for you to choose from is somewhat small in numbers. I had hoped for some sort of player creation here, be it from pre-generated models or being able to use the PS3's EyeToy peripheral, however this was not so. You are given a set number of characters, each with a limited amount of outfits to choose from. These characters range from superheroes, sexy ladies, vampire vixens, to an subergeek and even a mime. What is nice is that each of these characters has their own set of animations as they stand around on the stage. They will also break out into various moves to celebrate their victories or show disappointment in their failure. I would have liked to have seen more choice or options in this area,

The sound manages to add to the atmosphere of this trivia based game show. Finally, the crowd and music is very active too, and they really do help to pull you into the game show. The crowd will react when you nail a difficult question or incorrectly answer an easy one, all the while the music adds a bit of tension at just the right points as you try to get the correct answer for the question in front of you. Buzz! Quiz TV for the PS3 is a solid successor to all the previous incarnations that appeared before it on the PS2. With improved graphics, wireless controls and great integration of the PLAYSTATION Network in so many ways, you will spend many hours testing your knowledge with all the trivia questions offered.
