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: "The Movies" is a strategy simulation in which you are the very wealthy head of an up and coming movie studio poised to make a name for yourself with budding actors and "green as can be" directors and film crew.
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: So Activision decided to jump in on the Sim gaming community and create their own version of the Sims -- Hollywood style. Not bad, but heavily flawed. The premise of the game is to run a movie studio.

Summary: My boyfriend got this for me for Christmas, however he didn't check all the system requirements before he bought it. Do this!!! My computer is 4 yrs. old and had to update graphics that are DirectX 9.0 compatible.
Summary: First of all, I need to say what some other reviews have already said.. this game is WAY overpriced! I mean, this is even more than how much The Sims 2 cost when it first came out. That's not right because in no way is this game better than the Sims 2. This game should be at most $30. But that's it.
Summary: This is a fantastic idea really. You own a studio you produce movies you create stars you even uploading them the in the net so you can get critics on them. Do you want more? Ok here it comes with the virtual money you earn from the game you can go to the site [...
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...
This Game Does Have Potential, But It Isn't The Best
30 July 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.
