Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz
Finally another Buzz! game on the
PlayStation 2 with Jason Donovan reprising his role as Buzz in "BUZZ!
THE HOLLYWOOD QUIZ" that is the next instalment of this popular series.
This time in Buzz, the player has access to 5000 different movie based
questions that include clips, pictures, celebrity images and sound bites
that will really test your knowledge of Hollywood.
As with the previous
version of Buzz, the buzz controllers are a must in order to truly
experience this game as how the developers intended. Like the previous
version, the gamer or gamers play against either each other or AI
players in order to become champion of the Hollywood Quiz which allows
for up to 8-players via multiplayer for the best Hollywood trivia game
The main star of Buzz besides the sometimes
annoying and entertaining host Buzz are the huge big red buzzers which
are meant to represent quiz show buttons that also feature four
rectangular buttons in order to assist the gamer answer multiple choice
questions. The beauty of Buzz is that even non-gamers can play the title
which is extremely accessible to a wide majority of people. In fact,
it's extremely easy, push the big red button to answer and then one of
the four coloured buttons to answer.
Before starting the title, the players must choose from a variety of
different Quiz avatars, each with their own personalities, traits and
looks. The game also gives the player or players a variety of different
quiz games that they can play, each with different lengths, rules and
types of questions. The title offers a variety of different questions
from the personal lives of celebrities to a huge range of movie
questions. The clips and sound bites are extremely entertaining and
really give this title a great range of interactivity. Needless to say,
the questions will suit a wide range of movie goers of all different
Graphically, the entire Buzz series is
rather plain and cartoon like with its strange looking avatars and host
that ironically suits the genre. Buzz features some great animation as
he spins around the set. The movie clips are good quality as with the
musical score of the title and the sound bits. The voice acting is
clichéd and strangely annoying, especially Mr. Donovan as Buzz but in
the end, it's all part of the fun.
In conclusion, BUZZ! THE HOLLYWOOD QUIZ is
definitely recommended for the entire family that is a great addition to
the franchise and I for one cannot wait until this or a new franchise
begins on the PlayStation. With a variety of different movie questions.
