Great game overall. One of those quirky games that keeps you immersed.

Summary: So far, I've only played the demo. But I just bought the full version on Ebay. This is a great sim type game, especially if you like the idea of running a movie studio. Sometimes, it's gets too detailed, as you find yourself having to micro manage Stars moods and relationships with other Stars. But to my knowledge, there is no other game just like it, and it has a lot of replay-ability.
Summary: I had awaited the release of this game from when I first heard that Lionhead was releasing a simulation game that would let you make your own movies. But once again, Lionhead promised us the world and gave us Wisconsin. The content is limited, the game play tacky, and the universatility (made up word but you get the idea) was merely so-so. Despite all this I do find myself going back to the game from time to time and I don't know why.
Summary: This game is sort of a cross between Dinopark Tycoon and Stunt Island, the best movie program ever written. Until Disney Interactive comes out with a 3D hi-res version of Stunt Island this will have to do.
Summary: Orignally, difficult to install on VISTA. Once installed, it's a fun game. A combination of The Sims & Hollywood Tycoon. It would be great if Lionhead could have provided a way to pick & choose game play options more (i.e. play more like tycoon & less like Sims, or vice versa).
Summary: It is very interesting game it is similar to roller coaster typhoon. It is about building different movie sets and managing actors hiring firing. You can make your own movie but mostly it is about building up and managing. You also get award for movies and lot and rating. But do not expect it to be like real movies you see on TV.
Summary: Such an over-looked game. Proally one of the most underated ever, not an exageration. It takes The roller coaster Tycoon model then shows that model down Roller Coaster Tycoon's throat. Superb game.
Summary: This is a very in-depth game, which is good. It will take some time to really get the hang of it and figure out how to keep actors happy and make good movies. It does a good job of helping to make suggestions as to what needs to be done but don't expect too much automatic behavior. I have only played it a little while but it is pretty detailed. Making a good movie is another whole game in itself.
Summary: If you like Sim games, I'm sure "The Movies" will appeal to you. With the included "Star Maker", you can create your own actors and actresses for import into the game. If you want to concentrate on simply making movies and not having the headaches of running the studio, you can play in "sandlot mode." Also, when you have really polished your skills, you can upload your movies to the game's website so you can share them with fans of the game from around the world.
