Video game number sixteen: Scene It: Box Office Smash!

Game review number sixteen in my 365 Games in 365 Days project is "Scene It: Box Office Smash".

I always enjoy a little movie trivia. Box Office Smash is a pretty good trivia game, with a variety of different questions. There are scrambled movie titles, movie clips (where you answer questions about the movie you just saw), lists of movies that you have to rank in order of release, etc, etc. This is the sequel to another 360 game I actually own, and I've only played that one a handful of times. If you're not playing with a group of friends, there's something hollow about the experience.

This game is just like every Scene It DVD game you've seen in the aisles at Target, except this one has achievements. I played for about 2 hours and got over 300 gamerscore. If I'd had four people playing, that would have bumped it up even more.

I'm sure I'll play this again sometime, perhaps when we're having company over. It's always a fun one (even if you don't use the big button controllers they pack in with it).

Overall Score: 5 out of 10 (eventually, it does get old).

Achievements unlocked? A metric ton, all in a couple of hours. I think this is the highest number of achievements yet for me on this challenge (on a single game in one day):
