  • Excerpt: Can you imagine films without special effects? Would The Matrix have been half the film it is without its incredible camera technology?

  • Excerpt: Back in January, we gave the original The Movies a 7.0.

  • Pros: You can take your movies to the next level with the addition of stunts and special effects, New sets let you create fresh new epics, such as monster movies, Fans of virtual moviemaking have plenty of new toys to play with
  • Cons: All these new features add to the complexity of the game and make micromanagement a handful at times, Existing problems from The Movies still persist, such as the annoying staffing shortages
