It seems impossible to imagine that theres anyone in the world (who isnt employed by Microsoft) that could possibility try and talk about this game without instantly referring to the PlayStation 2s Buzz! series. In fact if the Scene It? name hadnt been licensed from the popular range of board games Microsoft probably wouldve been on the receiving end of a few stern letters from Sonys lawyers. As it is the games main gimmick, that it comes with four special game show buzzer controllers, is identical to Buzz! They even look exactly the same, although Microsoft has got the extremely shaky defence that the Buzz! games have never been released in America.
If youve not played the original board and DVD game version of the concept the basic idea is that you are presented with a series of themed and general knowledge movie trivia questions, many linked to a series of clips from the respective movies. The game comes with over 1,800 questions and more than 20 styles of puzzle. These include trying to complete a famous movie quote, guessing a movie title from a partial list of credits and working out a movies name based on a childs drawing.
Using the buzzers insure that no one can get intimidated by the regular Xbox 360 joypad, with the giant buzzer at the top used to cut in when you think youve got the answer and the four smaller buttons used for answering multiple choice questions. Its not a new idea then, but still a very entertaining one.
