    Buzz! Quiz World tries to offer an alternative for the console version. Unfortunately this game doesn’t really succeed in bringing forth a real quiz feel, especially because of the limitations of the PSP. Its short lifespan – with all modes – will make you put down this game relatively fast.
  2. As far as presentation, my only complaint is that Buzz talks too much and repeats himself far too often. Outside of that, the rest of the audio presentation is fine, the graphics are good, and the load times are great. So while you won't find the flashy presentation of the PS3 version, you certainly will find a very competent, functional, and good presentation here.
  3. Buzz! Quiz World for the PSP had the potential to be a great compliment to the PS3 version by offering a similar but portable-friendly experience that fit the PSP well, but numerous annoyances, odd handling of the large pool of questions, and completely barren online play makes the group this game could appeal to a very small crowd.
  4. While it is a respectable game, BUZZ! Quiz World suffers from a bad case of Little Sibling Syndrome, as the PS3 offers a much better BUZZ experience.
  5. Maybe in a few months with enough user-generated and downloadable content, Buzz! QW might be worth looking at. As is, however, it is nothing more than a completely lackluster, dull, and boring trivia game.

    There’s definitely a better presentation to the modes and I dig the new color scheme, but the game's littered with issues. Why have the option for set names if Buzz won’t say them? Why not let me download MyBuzz quizzes to the PSP to play on the go? Why not be able to tell the game I can’t use sound like in Brain Age? Why have so many questions repeat so quickly?
  7. I appreciate them trying to extend the longevity by allowing easy access to user made content, but they forgot to put the party in this party game, and what's left without that is nothing more than a bland trivia game.
  8. Buzz Quiz World is a fun game, its just a pity that the few flaws it does have keeps it from being a great one.

    I love the questions of the game, it really challenges me. I also love the graphics, the loading speed (it's fast) and its diverse environment of single and multi-player modes. I just don't like Buzz himself, he is weird: the way he talks and the way he jokes. For the quiz genre, it is a great game. Full Review »

    I'm a big fan of Buzz! it's one of the quiz games out due to the variety of subjects it has on offer. If you have played Quiz World on the PS3 all the modes are on this version expect for the grunge round. It also includes game sharing so you play it with a friend/family who doesn't have the game. Pros: The game has a strong single player mode, multi player is good fun, game sharing included, it now has access to My Buzz Quiz, and online support. Cons: No one is ever online, you cannot download My Buzz quiz (these are quizzes that people create online) so if you want to them while your out you can't you must need an internet connection this should be patched so that you can download them at home and play them when ever you want, Buzz repeats himself far to much, some question do repeat quite often. It's still worth the money it's an enjoyable Buzz! game more people just need to get online and Sony need to market the game more. Full Review »

    Review for PSP Go PROS: buzz quiz world is a new and refreshing addition to the trivia game genre with nice graphics,quick load times,unique single and multi-player modes. Cons: Buzz talks way to much his corny off the cuff jokes can get old quick would be a big improvement if you could turn him off. Conclusion: over all I really like the game and recommend it to my friends.Me and the family play it all the time in the car on trips we run it through the stereo so that even the driver gets to play...Funny the kids never seem to get tired of buzz's jokes.
