  1. Though some of the round choices are odd and the commentary could use a bit more humor, the core trivia game here is a great choice for the casual game player looking for a trivia party game.
  2. Even worse, the game gets boring quickly. It offers decent fun, especially with four players, but Buzz could've used more organization, spontaneity and humor to liven things up.
  3. It's not going to set the hardcore world on fire, but it's a nearly perfect party game, and there's room for that in this world.
  4. The game has a nice feel and is definitely the type of game you want to play with others. This is a solid multiplayer party game. The graphics are nothing special, nor – really – is the sound, but the game flows well and can present a challenge (depending on your difficulty level).

    If you're home alone avoid this entirely, but if you're all about riotous social gaming, get involved with Buzz! now. [May 2007, p.112]
  6. A group of mates will have a good time, as ever.

The games are played with buzzers: controllers designed specifically for the game that consist of four coloured answer buttons and a big red buzzer.

    Buzz! The Mega Quiz contains questions about general knowledge and is therefore more accessible to the casual player who has no specific knowledge about sports, movies or music.

    The game is very fun to play with a few friends or family members. Although the host of the show is kind of annoying sometimes and the music is so loud that you can hardly understand the questions, I highly recommend this game if you have other people to play with.

    Despite a "creepy" animated host (the mime character is creepy too) and sometimes obnoxious sound effects (the old lady character's songDespite a "creepy" animated host (the mime character is creepy too) and sometimes obnoxious sound effects (the old lady character's song "Doing rather well, oh, I'm doing rather well" is the worst), this game is actually really fun. Funny, too, and there is such a wide range of question topics that it will keep everybody happy. The unique round types (such as Pie Fight and Point Stealer) are very fun. Even the grand prizes (my brother got a snow leopard) and the smaller trophies such as fastest answers, highest correct answer percentage, etc. will leave no player disappointed. Easy to set up, too!
