Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen!

True achievements
8 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Still encountering new (never before seen) questions. Some repetition, but not as much as previous games. Singleplayer is fine, but meeting new friends with online multiplayer would have been very nice. This game version is definitely more challenging/difficult than the first two. It might require more than one rental to complete all achievements.

Great party game's film clips appropriate for teens and up.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this fun, engaging party quiz game uses video clips from real Hollywood films. These scenes are often from R-rated movies and, while they don't show R-rated material, they still feature language, humor, violence, and themes that many parents would deem inappropriate for young children. Parents should also know that children without a decent knowledge of Hollywood and celebrity culture are likely to get quickly lost and frustrated.

  • Conclusion: The Xbox 360 version of Bright Lights! Big Screen! is a disappointment when compared to previous games on the platform. Online play, leaderboards, and avatar support are all absent, despite their inclusion in earlier games. The subpar visuals are even more glaring when viewed next to other installments. If you've never played Scene It before, Bright Lights! Big Screen! will serve up plenty of multiplayer fun.
  • Pros: Multiplayer is fun and engaging, Wide variety of genres and decades, including new releases.
  • Cons: No online play, leaderboards, or avatar support, Not enough new content over the last game, Bare-bones visuals and grating sound effects.

  • Summary: Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! is the third major console release and the first multiplatform offering for the popular DVD-based board game. Unfortunately, like many popular film trilogies, Scene It seems to have reached its peak a bit too early. If you have played either of the first two games in the series, the newest iteration will feel like little more than a pricey expansion pack. Although Bright Lights! Big Screen!
