True Family Fun

We tested this game at my house with a group of players from 16 to 25 in age, and some older spectators. The game was challenging, and provoked lots of hilarity and competition. Still, there is no reading required, and no great advantage to being older or more experienced, so I think that this game would be fun for the preschool set as well.
There are a number of different choices for playing the game, including a random series of quick games, longer games, or a list of games you choose and set in order. I was pleased to see that it is possible to select from the various challenges, since there are a couple (notably one in which players administer shocks to one another's characters) that strike me as unsuitable for young players.
Our testers mostly chose to play the quick game mode. In this approach, players are presented with a brisk succession of fast games using a variety of skills. Many are visual games where players have to quickly match colors, but there are also games involving aim and strategy. For those seeking a fun game with some educational value, Jungle Buzz provides critical thinking and visual-spatial skills practice.
The graphics are fun. There are funny little monkeys in a brightly colored jungle, and they have a variety of adventures. Our kids (male and female) enjoyed dressing the monkeys up in silly outfits, an option offered at the beginnings of the games.
The controller worked well, the instructions were very clear, and there were no problems with using the game. Four can play with a single controller, provided with the game.
This game would be a good choice for young players, and for mixed-age groups.

Although a little intimidating at first with all of buzzers---and we had never heard of the game---it soon proved to be great fun!! The games are easy to get the hang of...and it provided a little bonding time for the entire family. Once getting the hang of it the trick was getting OFF of it...or at least getting the kids to allow you to get off!! Wonderful fun and a real treat......      DYB

This game is perfect for parents to play with their kids. I'm glad they are making games like this that will help bring parents and kids closer... like board games and reading books does. I can't really say anything bad about it except like any video game, you'll probably get bored of it after a while.

. . . for young children.    I appreciate the fact that this game is designed for the PlayStation 2. Those of us who have not upgraded are still in need of games!    I'm a parent, and as such, asked my kids to play and review this game. My 13-year-old son said "Three Stars". My almost 15-year-old daughter (who played the game with her much younger siblings) said "Five Stars". My younger children loved it.    Honestly, in this situation, …

Ever since the world was introduced to "Mario Party" people just can't get enough of party games. "Buzz Junior: Jungle Party" is yet another party game that attempts to capture some of the popularity of the aforementioned game. The problem games like this normally has is if a game requires a special controller, the game normally fails to catch on("Dance Dance Revolution" is a rare exception). Thankfully, "Buzz Junior: Jungle Party" takes care of this problem by not only including the special Buzz …

This game is great from many aspects and it's true that it's ageless for family fun. The first day we got this game the kids played it for about 3 hours straight until my husband and I got in on the action. The game play is easy to grasp for old and young alike. They have the Buzz controllers, which basically each have four colored buttons, Orange, Green, Yellow, and Blue, and one big red "Buzz" button. Having looked at what other games are available for the Buzz controller, there appears to be …
