Scene It is a quiz games about movies, the title's a pun... Scene It? Seen It? Get it? But the format of the game is a familiar one to anyone who has ever taken part in a quiz game of any type. These titles were originally released as DVD games, which you played using your remote control, and were popular despite the limitations of that format.

On the Xbox 360, this genre of game kicked off with the previous version of Scene It, Lights Camera Action, in 2007.

The difference with Scene It? to traditional quizzes is that when you know the answer, or think you know the answer, you can buzz in, just like on a TV panel game. Once you buzz, your fellow players are shut out and you get the opportunity to answer the question. This avoid any arguments aver who shouted "I know it!" first. If you don't have a "Buzzer Button" controller you can use the standard Xbox controller.

Making use of the multi-media capabilities of your console, Scene It can show you scenes, or play you sounds from movies and ask you to identify the movie or actor. The game also features "Credit Roll", where you are shown the stars of a film and the characters they played, and you have to guess the title. "Panel Flix" shows you an old-school, 8-bit style animation of a scene fro a film, and you guess the name of the film. "Which Is Which" shows similar stills from two movies and asks you to select the correct one. "Quotables," required you to to finish a famous line from a featured film. Scene It keeps track of the questions you've been asked to minimise repetition.

As you would expect, the whole thing can be played on-line, and there's downloadable content available from Xbox Live, and to tie in with the New Xbox Live Experience, the game features player avatars.

Scene It is available either with or without the Big Button peripheral, so if you already have one from the last game, you don't have to pay for it again. But if you don't have one, or you've broken the last one after hundreds of hours of button pressing, you can get another set with Box Office Smash. The Big Button controllers use infra-red rather than Microsoft's usual joypad wireless standard. Although the Xbox 360 has an infra-red receiver built in, it is not capable of handling four devices simultaneously; so the Big Button peripheral includes its own external sensor.
