Charming, but didnt hold my attention

Philip, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • 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. Maybe I just need to stick with it and play it more. I've recently played Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and found that to be a very addicting, very satisfying experience.

Good -- Not Great

Brian Gibson, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • 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. Still, one can establish some general concepts, such as the quality ranking of actors from one to five stars, which serve well enough for gaming purposes.

Its a great game for those who like tycoon games

  • 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. You create or choose an actor, make a script, and shoot the movie. It says you can create your own movies. Well, not exactly. You choose a pre-made backdrop, choose the year, and write the script.

The Movies

700020784@deleted, Ebay

  • 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. Since then, my enthusiasm has grown exponentially. Eventually, it would make sense that not only would someone have enthusiasm for viewing an art form, but making it as well.

Okay but I got bored with it quick

Gina Emacs, Amazon
12 July 2007
  • 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 build something without knowing all the necessities for that type of building... well, it just left me want an update and more info and help.

This Game Does Have Potential, But It Isn't The Best

M. Hill, Amazon
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.

Good but Flawed

Avalon Daughter, Amazon

  • 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. It acts quite a bit like the Sims but concentrating more on the community rather than the stars that you create; your goal is to make movies as best and with as much star power as possible. The Pros: This game can be fun.

Not Oscar's material

Lestor neeker Wong, Amazon
7 August 2006
  • Summary: There're some excellent reviews on The Movies over here, so I'll just keep mine short. One of the reasons I could never play the Sims series is because of the intense level of micromanagement. The same applies to The Movies. The premise is interesting - a shot at becoming the boss of a movie studio is bound to interest some people. You get to build stage schools, production offices, movie sets, script offices and the likes.

Decent... but needs SERIOUS improvements.

Sherry Berry, Amazon
7 August 2006
  • 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. So here are the Pros and Cons. Pros: - If you really enjoy The Sims games.. this is pretty fun to try out. - You can share your creation online..
