"This title is cool. Don't confuse it with the competition. Unlike "Scene It", PlayBack does not need a board to play, and it outshines "Shout About Movies", because it allows for up to four players/teams! It even keeps score and can determine ties. This is the ultimate party trivia game. It also plays neat movie facts, just like those old Coca-Cola Screenplays in the movie theaters."
Great Party Game

"I purchased the PlayBack game for a party, and it was a HUGE hit.
We planned on playing one game, but ended up playing it all night. One of the many things that I liked about the game was not having to keep track of how many questions I got right. The game actually kept score for us. NICE feature. I can't wait until the next title.

"I am very dissapointed in this game, it has low production values and honestly, you can't play it more than once. It reused several of the trivia questions from the first game when we tried to play it a second time (dumb but we wanted to see if all the questions were as stupid). But the most irritating thing was that a lot of the questions were really trivial, I know that's the point, but it was to the extent that the game wasn't fun. There were six of us (4 of us watch a lot of movies) and we were all stumped for 80% of the questions because they were movies that I had never heard of. One question was from the strait to video movie with Mandy Moore, "A Walk to Remember" that I had watched on cable (I still couldn't answer the question). Other questions included stuff you would not know unless you read gossip sites specifically about the movie. Don't waste your money on this DVD/Trivia game.
Shout About the Movies (Hasbro) is much better, I've played this at two different parties, there are movie clips, sound clips, etc... and an actual person narrating/hosting the whole thing. You can play with two people or get into teams. The best thing is that all of the questions can be answered if you've watched the movie and are movies you might have seen. Plus Hasbro sells them on its site for $8.99 each."
