On the PlayStation 3, Buzz is as close to
most of us mere mortals will get to starring in a quiz show and on this
console, it comes with four wireless buzzers (4 Players, although 8 is
possible) to assist in that quiz show experience. The game can either be
purchased with or without the buzzers. Hosted by the annoying and
sometimes funny Buzz who is voiced by Jason Donovan, gamers must engage
in a variety of challenges in order to become the the Brain of Oz!
Featuring a variety of different categories
that include music, sports and films to name a few, players compete
against points which are generally rewarded by either answering
questions correctly or by stealing points from another player. Whether
casual or hardcore gamers, Buzz's appeal caters for everyone and is
definitely one of the great party games. Apart from playing with friends
in your lounge room or home, gamers can also challenge other gamers from
around the world, more specifically from Australia for this current
Gameplay wise, Buzz supports quiz games that include Point Builder, Pass the Bomb, Fastest Finger, Pie
Fight, Point Stealer, High Stakes and Final Countdown that offers
thousands of different questions. In terms of Australian content, there

international questions too and considering that there a variety of
different versions of this game, it's understandable.

controller with four coloured buttons below it that correspond to the
answers displayed in the game. In its essence, it’s the perfect control
In terms of graphics, the title is similar
to the previous game, however with an added paint of the Australian Flag
to give it the title some local ownership. Needless to say, it's quite
cartoony and looks exceptionally colourful on a HD screen. The voice
acting is as clichéd and as forced as ever and actually suits the game
perfectly plus the commentator also throws in a few "aussie" gangs,
slangs and colloquisms.
Buzz! Brain of Oz! doesn't try to be
clever, rather it gives the user several thousands upon thousands of new
quiz questions, some locally based for Australia. With no real new
gameplay, Buzz! Brain of Oz! is still entertaining and is definitely
more enjoying as a party game. It's fun, just don't expect anything
