Gaming Illustrated has posted a new review of the PC version of The Movies, the movie mogul sim from Lionhead Studios. The game allows players to take the helm of a studio and attempt to steer a course toward success. Gaming Illustrated gave The Movies a score of 90 percent.
From the review:
I've never played a sim game like this, and doubt I ever will again. The amount of detail, the deep level of play, the amazing amount of controls, and all the fun stuff to experience is something that no sim game has ever dug this deep for. This is the type of game we'll look back on in 5 years and realize just how great it was compared to anything that had been released up to this point. Tremendous originality for a genre that sorely needed it. The Movies for Mac is currently in development at Feral Interactive. The rest of the review can be found at the Gaming Illustrated site listed below.
Gaming Illustrated: The Movies Review
Clearly, The Movies is a big winner in our book and a great PC game that everyone in the entire family can enjoy and get a lot of entertainment out of. The level of detail that was given to the title is absolutely stunning, and overall made for a great gameplay experience. If there's a downside to the game, is that sometimes the game gets SO big that managing the studio seems like an impossible task (this happens around that 40 to 50 year mark). Too many stars to deal with, too many lot issues ... it'll sometimes drive you right up the wall and teach you amazing mouse dexterity (since you constantly have to click around at a second's notice). It's not a horrible experience, but one that I am sure some gamers will be turned off by. Nevertheless, there's so much that is good about the game, it's hard to pass up and comes highly recommended for purchase for PC gamers, movie buffs, and people that have always dreamed of making their own movies.
