BUZZ! The Music Quiz (PS2)
Advantages: Great quality quiz game, done in the style of a tv gameshow, excellent depth, simple gameplay
The PS2 brought to the masses a hugely improved standard of gameplay from the previous Sony Playstation but having done this they needed to release something to open gaming up to a new market and so the decision to release Buzz! was taken by Sony to try to get all of the family involved and so engage all age groups but did it deliver as a game?
Buzz! The Music Quiz allows for gamers to answer a huge variety of music based questions with a total of over 5000 questions squeezed in to give the game a real longevity. The questions allow for all age ranges to get involved as the music on offer covers from the 50's right up to 2005 and includes over 1000 clips. For me this is one of the games strongest points as I have played quiz based games on consoles previously and found that they quickly become repetitive but thankfully I have never found this to be the case with Buzz! The Music Quiz.
The game is presented by your host named Buzz who is one of the best computer game presenters I have come across and one of the few to not be annoying me after about 10 minutes. Buzz is voiced by Jason Donovan in the UK version of the game and truly suits the character he is voicing to perfection. Buzz is also joined by his assistant Rose who really adds to the feel of a true gameshow rather than a simple console based quiz game.
This is a game designed to be used with Buzz buzzers which allows for the quickest and easiest way to answer the questions. Having the Buzz buzzers is something I recommend as it will enable you to play the game easier yourself and also allow for those who are not gamers in the standard sense to be able to play along too.
Plenty of game modes allows for you to play this until your hearts content with 8 different game modes for multi-player and 2 single player modes so that you can get plenty of practice in on your own or play with your mates in one of the 8 modes on offer. For me the level of depth in this game is brilliant as most of the previous quiz games out there for consoles have simply lacked the level of depth on offer in this great title.
The game is designed to feel like a quiz show rather than just like it is a game on a console and thanks to this I find it much more enjoyable than previous quiz games I have played on the consoles.
Overall this is a superb quality quiz game which is done in the style of a tv show to allow for the most entertaining level of game possible on the console but thankfully the makers did not skimp on the depth as they managed to put a number of game modes, questions and clips in to ensure that you will get true longevity from this title. A great game that is presented by Buzz (voiced by Jason Donovan) to give the best possible gameshow experience that you will want to play over and over again.
Summary: A quiz game that manages to recreate the tv gameshows we all love and want to take part in
