Summary: I bought this game because I loved the other 2 so much. The first was great, the second even better. It made sense that the third would be awesome! Nope. This game is totally different from the other two. Game play is a lot different and it just feels and sounds boring. It almost like someone tried to see what they could do with 1/3 the budget of the other two games. The answer is you make a very disappointing game.
Summary: In my house we love the "big button" games Scene It and Scene it Box Office Smash. When this was released, we jumped on it. What a mistake. There are so many steps back from BOS, such as the removal of avatar support, the annoying host, and lots of other missing options. It is an inferior product in every way and a huge dissapointment.
Not as good as the others, but good if you can catch it on sale.

Summary: We've played the other two XBox versions of Scene It over and over and were getting kind of bored with them, so we were glad to see this game. The announcer on this game is annoying, but you can turn it off. There are a few new game types and it does have different movies. But this isn't as fun as the other two Scene It games, and I wouldn't pay full price for this. We bought it for $18 on sale, and I wouldn't pay any more than that.
Summary: Very seldom do I find a game that I have little that I like about, or is a MAJOR backspin from previous versions. However, this time, I have to say this is the case. This has GOT to be one of the worst "upgrades" from the previous version that I have ever seen in my life. PROS: I get that some thought the announcer was a bit annoying, so turning that off, or allowing it to be turned off was a good idea.
Complete Change of Direction for the Franchise (not good)

Summary: I enjoyed the previous Scene it! games for the Xbox so when I saw this new update on shelves I was excited (all be it mad that more DLC wasnt provided for the already released games) I took it home to play with my wife and was severely disappointed. All the character of the first two games, the themed back grounds and interludes, was removed and we are left with a generic trivia game that just happens to be about movies.
