The last Scene it, which was called Box Office Smash, was awesome. It has avatars, online, and other stuff. This game has none of those things i just said. There are no avatars in this game, there is no online at all. And to top that off, for some weird reason, this game doesnt tell you the right answer after you got it wrong. WHY??? This game has so many obvious flaws in it, i suggest you play the Scene it that came out last year. The graphics arent great. Its not quite customizable. There is nothing better about this game from last year. If you want to play a Scene it game, try out Scene It Box Office Smash. And may i suggest that 1 vs 100 is FREE to xbox live gold users, and its WAY better than this game.
Wow, I thought the reviews were kidding, but this game is a giant step backwards for the franchise. I really enjoyed the previous Scene It a lot, and was looking forward to this game in spite of the puzzling low scores -- this game is so bad I don't know where to begin!
I was astounded how they got EVERYTHING wrong in this game from the presentation to the actual gameplay!
1. There is no option to use your XBL avatar. 2. Pointless & amateurish animations between segments that have nothing to do with the game, characters, or questions. 3. Flawed game mechanics (the half thought-out star system?!) 4. Unbalanced gameplay -- I had to sit through a ten question marathon on Evan Rachel Wood movies? You can laugh, I did, most of the specialized question rounds are two or three questions long. It may have been fifteen questions about her... all I know is it went on forever!
And then personal aesthetics: the character models looked like 3-D rush-jobs, and the host's shtick was gut-churningly skippable!
Everything about this game reeked of cheap!
Don't even bother with this one. It's not worth the disc it's burned on. Play 1 vs. 100 for some value for money. Or the previous title in the series. Or even Buzz on the PS3... anything else! Really!
Everything you came to love and cherish in the previous scene it game has seem to have disappeared from this new iteration. No use of xbox avatars, a truly annoying announcer and poor use of game types. I wondered why I had heard nothing of this game in the magazines or online. I just happened to find it on game fly. But i see why now this game is a poor excuse to attempt to keep the license going. But i dont understand why they strayed from the previous formula. That is the game that defines scene it. This new poor excuse is not even worth renting in my opinion. Normally I would keep a game like this so I can at least rack up some easy achievements, but I could not stand playing more than one game. I would suggest waiting for a after holiday sale to purchase this truly atrocious game.
