Buzz! The Sports Quiz
Buzz and Rose are back
in the next incarnation of this popular series, this time taking the
mental challenge to those with a bit of a liking for all things sports.
Using the controllers that are provided, players will have a ball with
the different ways that you can play the games that are included with
questions ranging from general knowledge through to indigenous questions
about Australian Rules football and other bits and piec6es that Aussies
will identify with.
Yes, this is the way that these games should be put
together now, with content relevant to the region in which the title is
released. I remember in earlier games years ago, you simply had to take
into account that trivia games would ask obscure questions about
baseball and American Football that you would be guaranteed to have no
idea about. Now there has been a lot more thought put into the whole
thing with different parts of the world being asked relevant questions.
You make your way through the title and there are a
variety of styles which you use to play the game. Buzz keeps it all
interesting throughout and the voice work that is done is funny and
entertaining. Buzz is one heck of a host and though heís over the top at
times, strangely I did not get sick of it. The graphic style of the game
is also pretty basic but itís almost the simplicity of it all that keeps
it so amusing to play.
If you want to up the ante when playing the game
against mates you can also wager points on if you get the next round
right or not. Possibly not such a great thing to be teaching the kids,
however with a few beers on a Saturday evening, it sure provides a lot
of fun times when there is gambling involved!
As you would expect with a game that has a title like
this, everything is sporting themed and the winners are shown by a medal
count. Even the gaming backgrounds are sport oriented which all makes
sense but does really bring me to this point: If you donít like sports
then this is a game that will not work for you one iota as you get it in
spades. For those who are enthusiasts, it will be right on the money for
you. I would also add that some of the questions might be above the
ability of our very young players to handle however the content is
This latest Buzz! Game is a good addition
to the series, though the direct theme of it in this nature may put off
some gamers. This might be one that if you already own the controllers
then a rental first may not hurt to see what you think.
