If you've spent any amount of time in the board game section at any department store, chances are you've seen at least one edition of Scene It. From Harry Potter to James Bond, the Scene It DVD game series has taken on just about every franchise or studio you can think of--including Disney, which is unfortunate for Disney Think Fast. Other than some motion controls and a charming Disney atmosphere, Disney Think Fast offers nothing better than what you would get with the Disney Edition of Scene It. Still, if you have a family with young children or you're an absolute Disney fanatic, this bare-bones game show might be a winner.
Disney Think Fast is set up in a game show format. After picking your contestant and Disney-movie-themed stage, you're whisked away by the show's host, Genie from Aladdin. Up to four players compete in a series of trivia games based on Disney animation. Unfortunately, none of the Pixar movies makes an appearance, but everything from Snow White to Lilo & Stitch does, so there are still a lot of movies to pull from. The default setting assumes you have a moderate amount of Disney animation knowledge, though that can be changed to better suit your Disney experience in a custom game. At the end of a few rounds, the scores are totaled, a winner is declared, and the credits roll. Other than a few unlockable characters and some items to dress up your contestant, that's about it. You can get in at least a handful of games before the questions start to repeat.
If you've played other movie-themed trivia games you'll almost certianly recognize many of the game types found in Disney Think Fast. These include an observation game that shows you a clip from a Disney movie and questions you on random elements from the clip, a sketch game that draws a character and asks you to identify it before the timer runs out, true-or-false and general trivia questions, and a few other variations of these. The best of the bunch are the genre-specific questions (heroes and villains, sidekicks, songs, and the like) and the guest questions. The guest questions depend on the location: if you're playing under the sea, for instance, Sebastian will come in and ask you questions about The Little Mermaid. In addition to Disney animation questions, there are some general knowledge questions, most of which are extremely easy, such as this gem: "Which is more useful in the rain? An umbrella or a balloon?" The simple questions make Disney Think Fast a good game for young children, though perhaps they'll lose interest when the questions start being repeated.
