    While the cumulative experience derived from the campaign may be disappointing, the underlying gameplay is still fun and the set pieces are still exciting, at least the first time you play through them.
  2. Hands-down the best party game experience of the year, Buzz! Quiz World is a massive improvement over the last game, showing that developer Relentless Software not only listened to their fan base but endeavored to actually make the definitive Buzz.

    Buzz! Quiz World is outstanding. Yes, I could’ve done with more names, more variation on round introductions, and the ability to log-in different PSN profiles, but none of that can overshadow the fact that Relentless Software listened to what critics and fans had to say about the last game and fixed the issues.
  4. Buzz Quiz World offers fantastic experience for all the family, this could be one of the must have titles for Xmas parties.
  5. Buzz! Quiz World is a very fun game, provided you have other people with you as it makes for a great party game experience.
  6. More round-types, more characters and more questions could have been added and it would have been a better game. But what you have here is more than enough to last you and your pals until the next Buzz! iteration, which I now expect will be even better than this one. Xbox 360 users might have 1 vs 100 but Playstation 3 users have their own King of Quizzes. Hail to the Buzz!
  7. Overall Buzz: Quiz World improves in every way over all editions of the series which makes it the best yet.
  8. With a huge amount of questions available, as well as a half dozen entertaining game modes to compete in, there is a ton of fun to be had with Buzz! Quiz World.
  9. Thanks to the new features, this part is as much enjoyable as the older ones. You will have real game show feeling that motivates to get more points than your opponents. Buzz! talks to you and let’s you know how well you do. He is a real motivator!
  10. If you have a love for trivia and want a great quiz game for the PS3, there’s no reason you shouldn’t check this out and get ready for some quality time with the family during the upcoming holiday season.
  11. 85
    Because of all the new features this is the best Buzz game made so far. So therefore it's an absolutely must have title for people who like to challenge their own knowledge.
  12. Without a shadow of a doubt, Buzz! Quiz World is the best trivia game on the PS3.
  13. Buzz! Quiz World is a nice step up from the already proven Buzz! Quiz TV and should appeal to fans of the series and attract newcomers alike.
  14. AceGamez
    Buzz! Quiz World continues the high standards of the series so far, the timing making boring New Year parties a thing of the past. For those who never quite liked Buzz, there are no major changes to the formula, but for anyone with a taste for quizzing, this is yet another essential purchase.
  15. 81
    A new part in this long running and big franchise. It’s finally got new modes, features and a more dynamic show with a few great improvements in the basic gameplay. Of all the previous released Buzz! games, this one is by far the best.
  16. Every area of the game feels polished and complete.
  17. It's fundamentally a great game and the best option for console-owning quiz fans.
  18. 80
    While some veteran Buzz fans may be a bit annoyed at having to upgrade so soon, they will realise like everyone else that Buzz!: Quiz World is the ultimate trivia experience on the PlayStation 3, or on any console for that matter. There has never been a better time to Buzz in.
  19. Despite its slow pacing and simplicity, Buzz! Quiz World is a terrific sequel and makes for an ideal purchase for trivia aficionados.
  20. Possibly the best Buzz! title yet - certainly the best we've seen for PS3.
  21. That being said, if you can get around his cynical attitude, and have a few friends who like trivia games, then Buzz! Quiz World is a knockout game can keep you happily buzzing for hours.
  22. Playstation: The Official Magazine (US)
    Quiz World's about as fun as Quiz TV; maybe next year we'll get the best bits of both. [Jan 2010, p.83]
  23. Buzz! Quiz World is one of the best title for a game with family or friends, thanks to the comfortable controller and the new question. Recommended for evenings with friends!
  24. Playstation Official Magazine UK
    It's still the only game guaranteed to get everyone in the family playing, swearing, calling you a cheat and loving every dangerously competitive minute. [Feb 2010, p.115]
  25. In spite of its high-definition, high-decibel wackiness, Buzz! does manage to keep its simple play front and center. The developers understand the implicit marriage of a party game: They supply the game, and the players provide the party.
  26. 75
    Despite its minor annoyances, Buzz is still the best assorted trivia game around.
  27. The best Buzz! game to date offers everything its predecessors do (and more besides) but doesn't break any new ground.
  28. Play UK
    If you don't [own Buzz on PS3] then this is a good, family-friendly game and a reasonable way to spend an beery evening. [Issue#185, p.83]
  29. For those who want to spend some quality time when it gets colder, with family or friends, here it is a fun game for that purpose.
  30. LEVEL (Czech Republic)
    Quiz legend strikes back in full force. Right choice for family entertainment or parties, solo players should look for another title. [Issue#186]
  31. Buzz! Quiz World offers great entertainment on the couch in the living room, but the tweaks made here aren’t really big enough to make this a necessary purchase if you have the previous game. If this is your first time in the wonderful world of Buzz!, please, come on in and make yourself comfortable. This is the best Buzz!-game out there.
  32. 66
    With Buzz! Quiz World however, the future is pretty much set. It now fits nicely, and willingly, in with the other continual release titles. You know the ones. The same music based games with another new song list, or the same sports game with another team roster.
  33. While the edges of the action can get a little rough, especially after repeated use, the core of the game offers a lot of solid trivia and a controller that anyone--even a person who has never played a video game before--can easily understand. That makes it a good dose of group fun.
