Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen!

Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! is a trivia video game developed by Artificial Mind and Movement and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment , and part of the Scene It? series of games. It was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii on November 17, 2009 in North America, and in December 2009 in Europe and Australia. The game features puzzles from high-grossing films at the time and from films considered the best.

Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! Gameplay

Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! features more than 2,800 questions based on contemporary ( present-day) and classic cinema. Players compete to provide the most correct answers to a series of questions and brain-teasers, which are often based on video clips or stills taken directly from feature films. After watching a sequence from a famous movie, players may need to choose the next line spoken (for example), or recognize the events taking place in a movie by quickly studying a freeze-frame of the action. The Bright Lights! Big Screen! edition of the game uses 23 categories of questions and puzzles. As in earlier Scene It? games, available for use on standard DVD players as well as on home computers and consoles, the controls are simple; the challenge is in recognizing the scenes and remember the characters or events hinted in the question. In Bright Lights! Big Screen!, which is designed especially for play on consoles, players can choose movie-themed outfits and props to customize the avatar character that represents them in the game.

The game received mixed reviews from critics. Official Xbox Magazine called it "A decent upgrade or introduction to the series". GameSpot noted "This movie trivia game offers consistent multiplayer fun despite its limited feature set". IGN stated "Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! gets a few things right that a trivia game should the clips are plentiful, the round with the edited photos is fun, and there's a fair amount of questions here but the things it misses sink any shot this game had at being something you need to play". GameZone commented "Scene It? features plenty of movie trivia factoids to keep cinemaphiles happy, but a dearth of features (no online play?!?) and the availability of other, better trivia games for PlayStation 3 makes me doubt that this was ever intended for the big screen to begin with". In contrast, Game Revolution cited "Scene It? can only be entertaining not to mention, fair if everyone playing not only has comparable movie knowledge but also comparable gaming experience, which is completely ridiculous for a casual party game. And the thing that's so irritating about it all is that these problems could have been fixed with almost zero effort".

For the Wii version, IGN stated "The bad lip syncing, the bland visuals, the inability to easily tell who is buzzing in, and so much more just keep this game from being something trivia fans like myself need to invest time and money in".
