Excerpt: I’m a sucker for trivia games. After You Don’t Know Jack graced PCs in the 90s, I became a sucker for trivia-based videogames. Unfortunately, there’s still not a very big market for the genre, with only a handful of titles out there worth their weight in salt. Thankfully, we have a series like Buzz! which regularly delivers fun quiz show action through our home consoles. The latest installment, Buzz!
Summary: Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz allows up to eight players to take part in an interactive quiz show experience featuring 5,000 questions based on Hollywood trivia, incorporating new and improved round types including Rollover, Fact or Fiction and Hollywood Stars, as well as hundreds of celebrity images and movie clips.
Excerpt: Trivia games are a lot of fun. You'd have to be a very unusual type of person to not enjoy them. I've always been a fan of game shows such as Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Millionaire, and the horde of other trivia shows TV has seen over the years. Playing trivia games with friends, usually a Milton-Bradley product of some sort, is always fun, too. But the days of picking out and reading trivia cards are long gone, as products such as Buzz!
Conclusion: Though any game can be written about, due to the depth of this game, I feel that this is a game that should definitely be experienced, whether you are into trivia games or not. Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz is one more example of why the PS2 is still reigning supreme, while in its eight year on the market. All I can say to end this review is to gather up a bunch of friends and go toe-to-toe with them to find out who is the biggest movie geek among you guys.
Conclusion: Graphically there’s not much to say as the layout is basic and the characters still feature some jaggies around the edges. Everything works well in terms of presentation values, but the game’s not meant to wow anyone. It's all clean and clear, as it should be. The textures are smoother this time and the color palette isn’t as bland as before. The only downside is the fact that you rarely ever see scenes from your favourite movies.
