The Movies Superstar Edition Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac|Life has posted a new review of The Movies: Superstar Edition. The game package includes Lionhead Studio's The Movies, the Stunts & Effects expansion pack, and a bonus music soundtrack featuring 30 original tracks. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Itís a remarkable ecosystem where everything feels truly connected, but it can get overwhelming unless you ramp up very slowly and figure out the myriad layers one at a time. Between making the films, managing the talent, and running the studio, youíve got a lot of balls in the air. Fortunately, the beautiful music and detailed graphics keep the experience from feeling like a chore.

The main story mode has you competing against rival studios for awards and prestige, and thereís ton more going on in this game, like a sandbox mode with no awards where you can set your own starting parameters and focus on the areas you like. The optional Advanced Movie Making features let creative people really get hands-on, choosing a sequence of scenes, the actors, costumes, sets, props, camera angles, and lighting. Then they can edit their film in the post-production office and even record voice-over dialogue that in-game actors will lip-sync. Audio clips and samples from iTunes, GarageBand, and iMovie are available, a Mac-only feature. Export options include iPod/iPhone size, and direct export to YouTube. Oh, and the StarMaker application lets you play Godís plastic surgeon by completely designing a new actor from the ground up, including physical aspects and personality.
