  1. Overall, Buzz! Quiz TV is a terrific PlayStation 3 debut for the franchise. The downloadable question packs (both paid and community-made), wireless buzzers and online multiplayer, as well as the improved presentation make the game one of the PS3’s best multiplayer offerings.
  2. Buzz! Quiz TV is going to provide countless hours of educational fun for you, your entire family, and a group of friends that will surely increase in size once they learn you have this game.
  3. It’s definitely not worth buying a PS3 over, but it’s definitely a must have title if you’re the kind of person who likes to have friends around to goof around with video games.
  4. Despite Buzz! Quiz TV’s shortcomings it is a very competent game. It’s not often that a title can appeal to everybody and for it to be easily played by everybody.
  5. Buzz! Quiz TV isn't quite the brilliant PS3 debut we wanted it to be, but it's still one of the best quiz games on the market. Its superb production values and impressive online functionality, including user created quizzes, make it a must own for anyone who watches quiz shows on a regular basis or anyone who fancies themselves as a bit of an egghead.
  6. Right now this is the best Buzz!-game out there. The concept is still working and will guarantee many hours of fun with friends or online against others. They could've added more questions though, as you keep seeing questions you already answered.
  7. Ultimately Buzz: Quiz TV plays like a hollow, broken shell of a once classic game with so much potential yet very little of it actually realised.

    Such an awesome game. I wasn't sure I was gonna like it, but I picked up a copy anyway and wow, I played it until 3 am (well I Such an awesome game. I wasn't sure I was gonna like it, but I picked up a copy anyway and wow, I played it until 3 am (well I didn't start until midnight) but not any game could keep me awake that late these days. I love the part when you can load user created quizs online that gives this game a high replayable value. because as long as you don't choose the same topic you don't get the same questions and answers. And there will be planty of new quiz topics daily (if not hourly). Anyway I really enjoy this game. I finally found something that would last until Little Big Planet comes out. Great job again Sony. I know I could always count on you. Expand

It is balanced perfectly. Trivia savvy people have an advantage, but all players are always capable of winning right up to the final round. The questions vary in difficulty and subject matter. I don't know what more you could want out of a trivia game. Expand
