The Mega Quiz is bursting with new videos, music and photos, and an all-new database of 5,000 questions. The studio and presentation have been spruced up and Buzz is just as stylish as always. New rounds have been added alongside some old favourites, with the finale revamped for an even more exciting conclusion. With all this, plus refined multiplayer features, this title is set to tax even the most hardened quiz fan. Featuring all-new round types, including Point Picker, Winner Stays On and The Final Countdown, Buzz has also worked with producers to develop "Mystery Games" - special rounds where he takes to centre stage and challenges the contestants to take him on. These special rounds give Buzz the opportunity to show off his multi-talented nature as a card shark, horse trainer and all-round raconteur. [SCEE] Collapse

  1. There's absolutely no doubt that The Mega Quiz is the strongest instalment in the Buzz franchise to date...arguably the first time that the balance of questions, rounds and presentation has been so close to perfection.
  2. Buzz! The Mega Quiz is definitely worth the $40. The game is a perfect complement to SingStar and the Guitar Hero games, and makes the PS2 quite a party machine.
  3. Buzz! The Mega Quiz might not be the best thing for hosting a trivia tournament, but it can be a lot of fun with a group of friends at parties or family gatherings.
  4. Just about as good as the series is going to get on the PlayStation 2. If you want a game that the entire family can enjoy no matter their prior exposure to video games, The Mega Quiz will be perfect.

    It's getting a bit tired now, but this is a decent installment. [May 2007, p.85]
  6. 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).

    This mega quiz is a mega bore. [Holiday 2007, p.78]

    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!

    Tremendous fun - another strong addition to the franchise. (And that is Jason Donovan providing the voice of Buzz in UK/AUS versions).

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.
