Behind every box office hit is a Hollywood mogul… in The Movies Superstar Edition, that mogul is you.

Starting out at the dawn of cinema, it's up to you to build your studio from an empty lot into a glittering Hollywood empire by producing must-see blockbusters, creating huge stars and giving the movie-going public exactly what they want to see. It's not all award-parties though… you'll need to balance spiralling budgets, fierce competition, and worst of all, actors' egos if you want to make it to the top.

When it's time to start the cameras rolling, settle into the director's chair! The Movies comes packed with tools to help you write and direct your own films. Once you've polished your films to perfection, you can upload them to YouTube and show the world your best shots.

  1. Eh, its ok
    by daisyborat, USA - Feb 21st 2014

    There are some great things and some bad things. Some things you have to MICRO MANAGE and others you dont get the option. Seems like they didnt put a lot of thought into this game, and how is played. I bought it and played it threw one time. I wouldnt say i will ever open this up and play it again, doesnt have engough features and appeal to really bring you back to the table to play again.
    Building is often a joke, hard to control. Having to destroy and rebuild somethign shoudlnt be so difficult, but it is, tryign to move a garden or lots of trees is a HEADACHE, should be able to select all and drag to where you want them.

    I wouldt say this game is worth more than 10.00 dollars, and just dont plan on playing it more than one time.

  2. Fun, but Nothing Special
    by Black_Star, USA - Jan 30th 2014

    Its fun, but can get really boring after a while, and its repetitive. If the price is right buy it, itll distract you for a couple of hours.

  3. Good Simulation, Decent Game
    by J H, USA - Jan 6th 2014

    I wanted to play this game for awhile so when i finally got it I was excited. Its fairly easy to get into in the beginning. Some additional features that are added later on are a bit harder to learn i.e. Custom Scripts. I actually stopped playing it after 3 days. While I admit I'm only a casual gamer, I felt like the game was a bit repetitive and got somewhat overwhelming later on. Overall, I thought the game was solid for what it is and meet expectations.

    Pros:
    -If you're interested in running your own production company. This gives you a fairly satifying sensation.
    -Graphics are decent..looks like the sims
    -Lots on achievements, sets, customs, buildings, etc to get over the course of the game.
    -While you can't make the movie completely you can make the script based on pre made scenes.

    Cons:
    - For you to be successful at the game you have to play it in a repetitve manner. At the end of the day its essentially 'Make movies, Get money, Improve Studio' over and over again.
    - The game starts getting a little overwhelming. You have to micro manage actors, directors, staff, maintenance, movie production, etc. All this is key to making good movies and succeeding.
    -You dont actually create the movies entirely. You can create a script which is basically pre made scenes that the characters will do. This isn't too much of a con to me as it would only make the game more overwhelming.
