Summary: Parents need to know that this is a handheld version of Sony's popular Buzz! trivia game series, and that like other games in the franchise it features questions that slant toward a teens-and-up audience. Its simplified design has seen the removal of much in the way of the series' sometimes racy cartoon antics, as well as its sexualized female contestants.
Excerpt: The Buzz series of trivia quiz show games has been around for a while on the PS2, but it is only now finally making its debut on the PSP. Unfortunately, a lot has been lost in translation, and Buzz Master Quiz will be a disappointment to Buzz fans and will have a hard time keeping trivia buffs interested for very long.
Conclusion: Ultimately, our main issue with Buzz! Master Quiz is that it's an almost completely redundant package. Solo mode isn't substantial enough to maintain your interest for long and multiplayer options are so peculiarly arranged that the real meat of the series is pretty much lost. Sure, there's fun to be had, but there's a real lack of depth across the board. It's telling that the only mode where Master Quiz offers anything close to previous Buzz!
Excerpt: It’s fair to say that the PS3’s Buzz! Quiz TV was a roaring success. Awarded 4 stars last issue, we were impressed by its raucous character, wide variety of questions, online integration and the terrific wireless buzzers. With their grip on the home console quiz market tightened, Relentless turn to the PSP with Master Quiz, allowing you to take your trivia on the train. But how exactly can you transfer what makes Buzz!
Excerpt: Le plus célèbre des présentateurs à tête de camembert fait une apparition remarquée sur PSP avec cette adaptation portable de Buzz! Un pari audacieux pour un résultat somme toute assez honnête.
Conclusion: «Buzz! Master Quiz» er et godt spill, og Sony har virkelig klart å gjøre noe med enspillerdelen denne gangen. Dette er uten tvil et spill som hadde egnet seg godt å spille alene, og derfor er det litt trist at enspillerdelen er såpass kort som den er. I løpet av et par timer har man fullført spillet, og vil man da spille mer må man ta de samme konkurransene på nytt.
Pros: Lenger enspillerdel enn vanlig, Nye typer konkurranser, Game Sharing (dele spillet trådløst for flerspiller)
Cons: Altfor kort enspillerdel, Savner mer variasjon i utførelsen av både enspiller- og flerspillerdelen, Ikke så mange valg hva gjelder figur og lyder som i tidligere Buzz-spill
