Despite the harsh reviews there are some irrefutable facts.
The game requires buzz controllers. If you don't know that, now you know. Don't rent unless you have them.
This game was meant for more than one player. You can play single player, but most modes require either playing online or with more than two local players.
The major graphics change makes sense if you think about it. One major gripe about Buzz 1 was that Buzz would announce every round the same way each time, because there were prerendered animations. Now they use the ingame engine for Buzz's dialog. This means that while the speech animations don't match up as well, at least Buzz doesn't say the same thing over and over ad nauseum.
Here's the bottom line. If you've never played a Buzz game, play or buy this one instead of part one. If you liked part one, you'll like this one better, probably. I did. If you didn't like part one, this isn't going to change your mind.

i was very excited to rent this new edition to buzz trivia. since i bought the original version and got the controllers then, it was great to have a new bunch of questions and a fresh new look with some new features. also, it says right on the rent screen that you need the controllers...so all in all its great for anyone who loves trivia and is already a fan of buzz trivia. otherwise dont bother.
