Scene it? Yup. Though I sorta wish I hadn't - Globe and Mail reviews latest Scene it? Bright Lights! Big Screen!

Once exclusive to the Xbox 360, the latest edition in Screenlife's board game-based trivia series--dubbed Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen!--is a multiplatform release, and its presentation suffers as a result.

The new texture-less graphics lack luster and fluidity, and the distinctive rooms (including the casting trailer, movie theatre, and special effects studio) that once played host to each new round of questions have been completely eliminated. Even semi-competent lip-syncing seems to be beyond the designers' abilities (we watched once as our host's lips kept flapping for nearly three seconds after the end of a sentence).

We're uncertain as to whether the game's graphics suffer because it was designed to run on the Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 with minimal visual differences between platforms (and, hence, was coded for weakest of the three machines), or if the absence of the money Microsoft paid for Xbox 360 exclusivity simply meant Screenlife couldn't afford to polish it up the way they had past games. Regardless, the result is an extremely bland looking game.

Gotta love these reviews eh?? Makes you wonder if it was still an exclusive it would be getting a lot better reviews? It's not much different from the other games yet gets slated. Fanboys claiming it was 360's answer to Buzz! which it clearly wasn't and now it's gone multi-platform all the fanboy reviewers are crying over it and giving it bad reviews. I'm not saying its worthy of AAA but they give some pathetic reasons for slating it.
