Summary: This game is entertaining for a bit but it doesnt hold my attention for long. I like sim games, tycoon, building games, etc. but this one left me feeling a little dssappointed. That's not to say that it's not well done, the game looks pretty good and it's fun to watch some of the movies play out.
Summary: I empathize with the game developers. Trying to make a game about making good movies was a tough challenge because "good" is subjective. One person's Gone With The Wind is another person's Mars Needs Moms.
Summary: First off, let me say this. This game is not new at all. If you have a new computer, the auto-run feature won't work. Instead you are going to have to install it manually. Now, about the game. Game play is similar to the sims or Cruise Tycoon.
Summary: I really love the Tycoon-style games, and was hoping this one of that type. While it is amusing, it does not require nearly the strategy and brain power I was expecting. You can make "movies" within the game, but are so limited by the available scenes that the movies are jarring and odd.
Summary: Around middle 2007, I became interested in film as a serious branch of art for people to display their aptitude for emotion, people direction, writing, and decor and compositionary designing. Otherwise known as acting, directing, screenwriting, art directing, and shooting a movie.
Oh so close to being in the same company of Civilization 4

Summary: I waited years for this game to be released. I first came upon it in a computer magazine. It wa sin development for at least 2 years. The previews looked fantastic. So much to do, but the greatest part of this game was going to be making movies, editing, and watching your possible masterpiece.
Summary: It's like The Sims, yet not. It didn't hold my attention like The Sims games do. Not knowing how to do certain things, not knowing which people have which skills (and from a distance, it's hard to tell who's who), not knowing who should go where and when, and them needing stuff while I'm trying to...
This Game Does Have Potential, But It Isn't The Best
15 December 2006
Summary: The game fun after the two weeks though you find out how limited you are. When you buy this game you want to make movies but you don't make the scenes the game does. It it hard to make a decent movie. The fun part is running the studio.
Summary: Back in the early 90's Disney released an obscure little gem of a game called "Stunt Island". The point of that game was to become a movie director on a fictitious "stunt" island off the coast of California and make movies of intense stunts.
Summary: I enjoyed the game overall, however, the "movie-making" feature of the game which I was most excited about ending up being the most disappointing part. However, controlling the studio is fun, developing characters reminds me of my Sims days, and overall this game is good as long as you've got the...
