  1. Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! offers several hours of amusement, but we expected more effort from Screenlife and developer Artificial Mind & Movement.
  2. The bottom line is that if you get stuck with Bright Lights! Big Screen! this holiday season, there's no reason to despair.

    Amazingly I still had a fantastic time with the game thanks to the idea that I am a huge movie buff.
  4. Scene-It? is a fun party game that will sit on the shelf gathering dust until the next social gathering.
  5. Rent it for a weekend and collect the easy Trophies, then get back to Buzz! [Feb 2010, p.81]
  6. 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.
  7. The one and only thing that prevents Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! from being an absolute waste is the sheer amount of available categories and the fact that a great deal of them are a lot of fun.

    Unfortunately this game failed a little bit. There are some nice ideas but they are not well developed. To play a quiz can be fun, but it really has his shortcomings and you have to keep in mind that this game only includes movie related questions.

    This quiz game is all about movies. Only it’s got two major problems. First of all, the buzzer integration is very poor and second of all, the questions are too difficult for the most players. We’ve expected more, but it is what it is and it ain’t good.
  10. This first version of Scene It for the PS3 doesn't have a lot of new material, and to make matters worse there isn't even an online mode or localized text. Spend your money on a Buzz! game instead.
  11. Dreadful presentation. [Feb 2010, p.74]

    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.
  13. If you’ve Scene It? once, you’ve Scene It? all. Bright Lights, Big Screen is an unnecessary addition to the bloated series.
  14. 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 ludicrous for a casual party game. And the thing that's so infuriating about it all is that these problems could have been fixed with almost zero effort.

    my wife and i play this a lot, and occasionally we see some repetition in some of the categories. the lack of downloadable content ismy wife and i play this a lot, and occasionally we see some repetition in some of the categories. the lack of downloadable content is frustrating and shortens the play-life of this title significantly. good, but not great, and other quiz games with deeper content may be the way to go when planning a party.
