The Movies Reviewed
7:51 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The PC version of Lionhead Studios' The Movies was recently reviewed by GamesFirst!. The game places players in charge of a movie studio which they must manage from the 1920's to present day. Along the way stars will rise, directors will become legends, and classic movies will be filmed. GamesFirst! gave the movies four out of five stars.

From the review:

The Movies is very much a "sim" style game. The advantage The Movies has over other sim games (Sim City, Sim Ant, Sim Theme Park, etc.) is the implementation of a historical narrative. It is one thing to build a city that's "like" New York City, or to create the world's greatest ant colony, or even to manage a single "regular" person's life through birth, job and grave. But it is quite another thing to become a part of the worldwide cultural phenomenon that is the film industry.
Feral Interactive is currently working of the Mac version of The Movies. For the full review click the link below.
