Oh I love puns. Scene It? Box Office Smash, an early attempt by Microsoft at capitalizing on something other than the core demographic, is a solid quiz party game, and at £6.36 with four free pads, it's a steal at Amazon. The four pads mean you can whisk some mates round, load up a quiz or two and get gaming. Or, if you're terrified of social situations or don't want to clean the mess up the next day, you can simply hop online and test your film trivia mettle against afficianados from all around the world. Terrific.

NB. Although this went out of stock minutes after being written up, you can still reserve to collect for next week at this price, which, considering the saving, we figured might be good to bring to your attention.

Apparently if you want to play any family games with your nearest and dearest, you're going to need multiple extra bits of hardware tat. Quiz games, let's be honest, don't really need an extra pad with a big red button (there are plenty of buttons on your standard controller!), but it's a good way of bundling things with games and potentially squeezing more money out of us: the innocent consumers.

Well this would be the case, except for the fact that someone over at HUKD has stumbled upon a mega-deal of quiz-flavoured awesomeness. Argos are currently giving away copies of Scene It? Box Office Smash for £4.99, along with four buzzers. Now considering that the game by itself is retailing at the moment for around £8, and that the buzzer bundle can't be found for less than £13, I'd say that's a bit of a corker.

In fairness, the buzzers appeal to something that's deeply ingrained within all of us: the desire to press big red buttons. The controller can't really match it for sheer simplicity and, let's face it, these games are really designed to appeal to everyone, including people who've never heard of Dual Shock or an analogue joystick in their lives.

Scene It? is surprisingly good, more or less striving to be Microsoft's answer to Buzz!, and it makes for some excellent multiplayer entertainment that isn't rude, offensive or particularly taxing in terms of mechanics, but will instil a healthy dose of competition and a deep seated desire to win.

Although limited to the movies, this proves extraordinarily well focused, with some cracking rounds such as Sketches, where a clue is slowly drawn on the screen Pictionary-style, Pixel Flix, which sees an 8-bit recreation of a movie you have to name and then answer questions on, and Celebrity Ties, where you have to guess the correct link between a smattering of celebs.

It's all very straightforward and accessible, with a wide range of questions designed to probe the minds of movie buffs, whilst not alienating the casual audience who don't own Hitchcock's entire collection and who can't quote every last word from Withnail and I. All in all, then, it's a bit of a steal at under a fiver, and well worth a look for some Easter weekend fun.

Scene It! Bright Lights Big Screen! £16.95 delivered @ Zavvi [XBOX 360, PS3 and Wii Games]

02389958-photo-scene-it-bright-lights-big-screenThere’s There's nothing quite like having a few laughs with a good old interactive quiz game over the Christmas holidays. So if you’re one of those competitive movie buffs who love to decimate confused grandparents and in-laws with your superior film knowledge, you can currently get hold of Scene It! Bright Lights Big Screen! for £16.95 from Zavvi which is the cheapest price available. Remember to text Zavvi to 82100 to get £1 off the original price however.

Scene It! Bright Lights Big Screen! is the third iteration of the Scene it! series. The game challenges players to answer questions based upon films released in the last four decades and up to the first half of 2009. Players can select from a range of different game modes which include Party Play, where players can drop in and out of a series of non-stop puzzles. Play Now, in which players can select from either a long or short, more structured kind of game. Or the new Fast Fire mode, where players have five minutes to answer as many questions as possible.

Most of the mini-games are carried over from previous Scene it! titles. Most consist of watching a clip from a particular movies and answering questions, but old favourites such Child’s play – in which you have to guess the name of a movie from a child’s drawing – are still present. However many of the reviewers do acknowledge that although fun, Scene It! Bright Lights Big Screen! isn’t quite up to the same standard as its predecessors. The visuals aren’t as good, and there is no avatar support, which means tha Scene It! Bright Lights Big Screen! feels more like an expansion than a credible sequel.

scene_it_lights_camera_action_palIt’s true that Christmas is still a fair way off but we all know how time flies. So if you fancy getting your hands on Scene it? Lights, Camera, Action for the Xbox 360 – a perfect game to play with family and friends etc over the holiday season – it’s currently going for just £9.73 from The Hut. The package includes four Big Button Wireless Pads and beats the next best deal by more than £5 according to price comparison.

Just like the popular series of interactive quiz games Buzz! Hollywood, Scene it? Lights, Camera, Action challenges players to compete against each other by answering various questions on movie trivia. However unlike Buzz! Hollywood, Scene it? Lights, Camera, Action is a game which will please film buffs as it’s more challenging, with greater emphasis on obscure and underground film titles rather than just commercial releases.

The game itself consists of various rounds hosted by the Mr Scene it, the innocuous, but rather irritating producer who informs you at the start of the game that he wants to evaluate your movie knowledge. Mr Scene it then proceeds to guide you through various rounds and ask questions based on a short clip from a film, or a particular drawing, or a sound clip.

The idea of the game is of course to buzz in with the correct answer before your opponents. With some 1800 questions which feature a diverse range of film trivia, Scene it? Lights Camera Action is a highly accessible addition to the home quiz game genre, and one which would make the ideal Christmas gift.

31768_normalIf you fancy yourself as a bit of a diehard movie buff, than what better way to show off your knowledge than with Scene it? Box Office Smash? The game is currently going for just £9.73 from The Hut, which includes four wireless pads, a receiver and batteries. This is a great deal given that, according to price comparison, this package would usually set you back at least £14.99.

Fans of the first Scene it? Lights, Camera, Action edition for the Xbox 360 will be pleased by this sequel as it improves on almost every aspect of gameplay. The format has been revised, new features included, and the game now has an online multiplayer feature. In terms of activities there is no shortage of variety with some 21 different puzzle mini – games. These range from things like guessing the missing object from a movie snap shot, identifying which movies goes with a particular sound clip to figuring out which film is represented in a child’s drawing.

Similar to titles such as Sony’s Buzz!, which have really gone on to popularizes interactive home quiz games, Scene it? Box Office Smash follows the traditional principle of buzzing in to answer a question. The difficulty of the questions is not particularly intimidating and the fact that the movies span more than half a century – from the 1950s up to 2008 – means the game will appeal to a very broad demographic. Overall it’s a great game to play socially, has surprisingly good replay value and - even though it’s a bit early – might be a good one to stash away for the Christmas holidays.
