I have the original scene it, and it's incredibly hard and very tough to beat. This HP one has both a mix of great fun with some challenges! Everyone who know's some stuff about HP can play and have fun. The "my challenge" is a really cool interactive feature that the first scene it didn't have.
The only snag that came with this game is that I couldn't stop the DVD when I wanted to take it out... Fortunately I have a 5 tray DVD player so I was able to switch trays and it would let me take it out. So not that much of a big deal, but it took a while to figure how to take it out :P
I would recommend this game to ANY HP fans of all ages!! It's really is the ultimate cinematic journey, and it's a great way to have a duel out with your HP nerd friends :D (and of course your family :P)

For one thing, there is no "Deluxe Edition" available of this game, (i.e., a version with more trivia cards and extra playing pieces). The pawns here are no longer metal, but faux-painted plastic made to look like metal, and the game cards are decent but not plentiful. I was really disappointed that Screenlife opted not to bring out a nicer edition, considering the fact that the price is somewhat high and that this third edition is supposed to encompass the entire series, but I guess they're doing whatever they can to cut costs, and cheapening the quality of the pawns is how they've decided to do it.
As far as general gameplay goes, the format is the same, but with a few slight alterations and additions. Features such as My Play, All Play, and All Play To Win remain, with a new section, My Challenge, which allows a single player to advance around the board by playing an interactive challenge using the remote. It's a neat addition, if a little too easy, but provides a nice change from only watching movie clips. The All Play challenges are a little harder than before, and feature, like the other parts of the game, characters, images, and clips from the Deathly Hallows films.
The trivia question cards have new categories, with logos that are numbers in speech-bubbles rather than the previous hats, castles, or brooms. This makes it more difficult to identify them when you roll the dice, but I'm getting used to it. I also noticed that the questions themselves have gotten a lot easier than before, with more questions relating directly to the films and what you see on screen rather than behind-the-scenes trivia. This might be a bit of a con for any major Harry Potter fan, myself included, who enjoys more of a challenge, but overall it gives most people a better chance of answering the question correctly in the time allotted.
Aside from the old Party Play feature, there is also the new Bonus Activities feature, which is somewhat like a modified version of charades, including acting a character or thing out, sketching it, or describing it. The charades section is probably the most enjoyable out of the three, as well as the easiest to play with a group, and definitely adds to the incentive for wanting to buy this game in order to try something new.
Overall, I'd have to say that I didn't enjoy this game quite as much as the other HP Scene-Its--it just didn't have that same immersive quality that was so prevalent in the others, which makes my glad I decided to hold onto them--but it's a nice addition for anyone who likes Harry Potter or trivia games.
