Excerpt: For a group of countries whose national identity is based on bad teeth, rubbish weather and eating crumpets we’ve not done too badly for ourselves. Our Empire used to stretch across the globe and we’ve given the world the likes of Charles Dickens, The Beatles and Ricky Gervais (sorry). Needless to say we’re great and Relentless Studios agree, as they’ve deciding to give us a Buzz! game all to ourselves in Buzz! Brain of the UK .
Summary: I have been playing quiz games on various platforms for years now, probably starting with a PC game called ‘You Don’t Know Jack’. Although all seem to either capture a particular well known real life game show, or add bizarre gimmicks to lure us in, I have been persistently disappointed by the lack of a true title winner that excels.
Pros: Glossy presentation, Superb UK theme, Great with friends
Cons: Very similar to Buzz!, Not downloadable, another disk!, No new modes, less questions
Conclusion: So if you have the original Buzz for PS3, you are no doubt wondering whether this rehashed version is worthy of your attention. Well really it isn’t in all honesty. Although the targeted UK questions are a strong positive, it doesn’t justify the additional cost as who wants an extra disk. Why on earth this wasn’t a downloadable content option I will never know and certainly would have been a lot more convenient, however this is the scenario we find ourselves in.
