The problem is, this is the game The Movies should have been from the beginning. While The Movies is, by itself, a fine game, it seems broken and dull next to the expansion pack. This is a rare occurrence in gaming, and I can't give a higher recommendation for an expansion than that.

The Movies ist und bleibt bei allen Neuerungen das, was es war. Eine Wirtschaftssimulation mit teils nervigem Mikromanagement, aber genialer Atmosphäre. Daran ändern auch die Stuntmen mit ihren tollen neuen Sets nichts. Leider wirkt der Titel auch optisch nicht mehr auf der Höhe der Zeit. So bleibt ein Spiel, das Fans und Besitzer des Vorgängers nur dann in ihre Kaufentscheidung mit einbeziehen sollten, wenn sie der Produzentenpart besonders gereizt hat. Denn genau hier finden sich die wichtigsten und interessantesten Erweiterungen. Neulinge mit Interesse an etwas anderen Wirtschaftssimulationsthemen hingegen sollten The Movies auf jeden Fall genauer ins Blickfeld nehmen. Denn nirgendwo sind blanke Zahlen so schön in kreative Spielfelder versteckt.

The Movies: Stunts and Effects is, therefore, an expansion pack for the hardcore fans of the game. It’s for those who have been making their own movies and sharing them at The Movies Online (and some of that stuff is pretty fantastic). If, however, you’re one of those who tried the game out but found all the micromanagement and sometimes awkward controls were putting you off, Stunts and Effects only compounds the issues. Better stick with uploading videos of your cat to YouTube.

The Stunts and Effects expansion takes The Movies to a whole new level, making for a much more rounded and complete game than the original, with a lot more scope for creativity in moviemaking. The management of stuntmen and subsequent testing of their skills in high-risk situations can be exhilarating and frustrating in equal measure, especially when you have your heart set on a big stunt and a bank of injured stuntmen. The new camera adds a new dimension and the special effects add a modern flavour to a game that had previously been limited.
