Fans of the series may be surprised that this time around Buzz will ditch the series roots in favor of a more puzzling affair. It doesn't fit into the main series; while Brain Bender keeps the wisecracking host of the previous games, it doesn't bring back the quizzes, acting more like PlayStation Portable's answer to Brain Training on DS."
The Good: A successful attempt at switching genres
The Bad: The host's voice can get annoying
The Ugly: The jokes
