Lights, Camera, Action brings friends and family together for a casual movie trivia game that everyone can play and enjoy. Using the simple and intuitive Big Button Pad, challenge your friends to see whose movie knowledge reigns supreme, with real content from your favorite movies and actors. New puzzle challenges: The Xbox 360 game includes more than 1,800 questions not seen before in any otherScene It? game. It features five new types of puzzle challenge that are sure to keep you guessing all night long. Enjoy "Credit Roll," where you guess the film based on the list of characters and actors, "Child’s Play," where you guess the name of the film based on a child's drawing of a film scene, and "Quotables," where you are challenged to finish a famous line from a featured film. In addition, all 21 puzzle types have been designed to provide the ultimate multiplayer experience on Xbox 360. Big Button Pad: Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action is shipped with four new wireless Big Button Pads, so each player has his or her own buzzer. Making games such as Scene It? more approachable for all types of players, the Big Button Pad takes its inspiration from the game show buzzers of yesteryear but uses the latest infrared technology to minimize the chances of an argument over who answered first. Hi-def visuals: The game offers a wide assortment of movie clips in HD format, as well as hundreds of stills and audio clips from your favorite films. Minimal repeats: The Xbox 360 version keeps track of questions that have already been asked and minimizes repeats so you rarely get the same question twice. [Microsoft] Expand

  1. There are so many clips and questions packed into this game that you’ll likely still be having fun long after your first game. The game also saves which questions each player has seen, making it much more difficult for a repeat question until well after seeing the majority.
  2. While I'm disappointed that the controllers are infrared and there's no online play, Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action is a solid entry in the casual area of games.
  3. It's nothing revolutionary, but the Big Button Pads add a new competitive element, and the new questions will entice fans of silver-screen trivia. This could actually see a lot of action during holiday get-togethers if you've got a bunch of movie buffs in your family.
  4. A decent "Buzz!"-rival for the Xbox 360, but don't expect any thrills or frills. [Christmas 2007, p.83]
  5. For drinking fun with people who are in their twenties and know who Parker Posey is, pick Scene It. For family fun with people who are either too young or too old to drive and think Truffaut is a special kind of Ferrero Rocher, pick Buzz! Hollywood.

    A respectable debut for the series on the Xbox 360, the buzzers are wireless, it's a shame about the number of questions but Scene It? is definitely a game that will get the casual gamer involved this Christmas.
  7. This game is meant to be played with three other people. With two or on your own, it is a boring affair. With 1800 different questions and a bunch of moviescenes, you can definitely have fun for a few nights, especially if you and your friends are movie-lovers. If you're not that much at home with the cinema, this game isn't meant for you.

Few trivia games have ever gone to the lengths this game does to keep things fresh, and the fact that it comes with 4 controllers means that everyone can play, right away. The fact that downloadable content is on the way is a big plus... this game could easily last for years. Expand

    If you love Sceneit then you will love it on 360, the only thing that could make this better is downloadable add ons.

Tons of fun for anyone that is a teenager on up (it is a bit tough for younger kids because they will not know most of the movies). This is better than any prior version of Scene It because the 360's hard drive eliminates duplicate questions. If you like movies, this is a great game to play with your friends and family! However, it is so much fun that we will probably play through all the questions in not too long, so I really hope that they issue some downloadable extra content through X-Box Live! (You hear that Microsoft-- I will be willing to buy a download for this game, so get to work!) Expand

    Excellent multiplayer game with the benefit of future downloadable question packs from Live Marketplace. The only negative for me is that if Excellent multiplayer game with the benefit of future downloadable question packs from Live Marketplace. The only negative for me is that if you haven't seen some of the films, you'll struggle, although having said that, the questions aren't always related to the rest of the movie, they can be observational too.

    Decent enough trivia game IF players have extensive film knowledge. I took this game to my parents' house on Xmas day, and both they and Decent enough trivia game IF players have extensive film knowledge. I took this game to my parents' house on Xmas day, and both they and my 18 yr old brother struggled due to the relative obscurity of some of the films and the difficulty of the questions. They did not particularly enjoy the game, as they could not answer many questions. If a trivia game is going to specialise in one genre, the questions should not be so specific as to alienate those without huge knowledge in that genre. That said, for film buffs this is a good game.
