Gameplay
Buzz! Quiz World places players in the role of a contestant competing against others, in the over-the-top yet family-friendly, fictional game show, Buzz!, which is hosted by the equally over-the-top host, Buzz. The goal here is to accumulate as many points as possible through a series of rounds, to become the overall champion. As with earlier games in the series, each player has their own franchise specific controller/"buzzer", (not included in this game-only release), which consists of a large red button to ring in to answer questions/make selections and a variety of other color-coated buttons used for scrolling on-screen options, navigation, contestant customization, etc. One of the great features of Buzz! Quiz World is that it is designed to utilize earlier released wireless Buzz! buzzers. These take advantage of the PS3's USB connections via a dongle, each of which accommodates up to four wireless buzzers, ensuring that there is always room for another buzzer, up to the eight players that the game supports both locally and online.

Rounds play out through a wide variety of modes, all of which are focused on fun multiplayer action and compromise both returning play options and those brand-new to the Buzz! franchise. The variety in these is designed to ensure that both casual players and serious quiz fans get maximum fun out of Buzz! Quiz World. Additional features include: PlayStation Eye support which allows players to take pictures of themselves while playing for use as avatars later; online multiplayer chat; AI recognition of over 300 male, female and nicknames that allows Buzz to address/criticize players using your real name; the ability to create and save up to 30 contestant profiles; extensive contestant customization; a standard knowledge base of over 5,000 questions; additional downloadable quiz packs; user created quizzes; and players' choice of preset rounds, or the ability to choose your own.
