Shiny and new
Jason Donovan — the voice of the eponymous Brylcreemed host Buzz — is back for another installment of the PlayStation's trivia game series. In the latest PS3 version — a PSP version is due later in 2009 — Buzz has been given an extra splodge of make up, a new larger, spiffier set, and updated shinier, glitzier graphics. Despite the lengthy start up time, the wait is well worth it as this is easily the most satisfying Buzz in many a moon.

For the first time Buzz addresses contestants directly by name but, although there's a method to the available names, many are bound to be disappointed. Dereks, Alberts and Sharons will either have to find nearby approximations or make do with nicknames, like Hotty, Macka or Shiela. Non-Anglo-Saxons are catered for, with the likes of Ibrahim, Hyun Woo and Hriday part of Buzz's lexicon, and those named Anzac and Prawn may be happy for the first time in their lives.
