Unlike other quiz show video games, Buzz! The Mega Quiz is so fast-paced and eclectic that it takes a long time for it to begin feeling old. You can cut rounds you don't like from the roster and adjust the number of questions asked. You can adjust their difficulty of the questions (though even at the easiest setting we don't recommend the game for kids younger than 10). With a memory card, the game will track which of its 5,000 questions have already been used, ensuring few if any repeats over dozens of competitions.

The surprisingly droll, English-accented host lobs brief, perfectly timed, and eerily accurate jibes at poorly performing players. The only problem is the final round, which lets distantly trailing players catch up to the leader in a matter of seconds if they answer just a couple of questions quickly and correctly. That may be noble, but it can be aggravating to those out front who may have just spent an hour working to build up a significant lead.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
