Scene It? Twilight Edition
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this video trivia game exists specifically for megafans of the movie Twilight and the books upon which the film was based. Film clips used in the game sometimes show violent or suggestive behavior, but if your child wants to play this game, he or she is already a consumer of Twilight media and you've already dealt with any of those potentially problematic issues when your kid read the book and watched the movie. If your children are not Twilight fans, pass this one by.
What's it about?
SCENE IT? TWILIGHT is a trivia game with questions based around the extremely popular teen vampire movie, Twilight. The game uses clips from the film (though not from its currently-in-theaters sequel) to illustrate questions, as well as still photos, character portraits, and sketches. Players buzz in, game-show style, to answer questions. Questions are extremely specific and may not direclty relate to the clips that are shown (e.g., a conversation between characters may be shown, followed by a question about where those characters first met -- in a previous, unshown scene).
Is it any good?
Whether or not you think Scene It? Twilight is any good is going to depend on how rabid of a Twilight fan you are. The Twilight saga is the kind of media franchise that has fans obsessed with the most minute details of the story. They know the names of every minor supporting characters; they remember what dress Bella wore to the prom; they can recite dialogue. So Twilight lends itself perfectly to this kind of trivia game treatment. If you're not a Twilight fan, or even if you're just a casual Twilight fan (do those exist?), you're likely to roll your eyes at the type of information the game expects you to know. But if that's the case, then this game is also not meant for you. From the mist-colored background to the seductive male host-voice that calls players by the names of Twilight characters, this game knows exactly who its audience is—and those people will love it.
