Excerpt: Until the release of last year’s Quiz TV, I was actually a Buzz! virgin, but upon discovering the series for the first time I soon came to realise that, for multiplayer gaming, it was something really special. Quiz TV soon became a Saturday night fixture with the family, drink in one hand and wireless buzzer in the other. I actually skipped Buzz!

Summary: Parents need to know that Buzz! Quiz World is a straightforward trivia game for one to eight players filled with general knowledge questions suitable for teens and up. It features mild violence in the form of exploding bombs that cover contestants in soot, and some of the avatars are somewhat sexualized. There is an online element, but it doesn’t let players communicate with one another.
Excerpt: The games industry is home to some absolutely ludicrous titles and Nanaca Crash definitely rides high on the list. Once you start the game, you see a generic looking anime dude standing around minding his own business, complete with some stupidly shiny hair (because he’s worth it!). You’ll notice behind the hapless guy an angle meter just begging to be clicked. One click chooses an angle, and another selects its power. What happens next?

But despite his incessant yammering, Quiz World provides hours of brain bending fun -- as long as you have a group of friends with which to play along.
Pros: your trivia games are exhausted or your new to the genre and family nights could use some wholesome fun.
Cons: you prefer your quiz games in cardboard boxes you can keep in the linen closet or not at all.
