The Movies: Stunts & Effects Review
The Movies: Stunts & Effects pretty much sums up the new content brought to The Movies in its title. Now your studios will be able to create those summer blockbusters we all know and love. The new structures, sets, and other supporting additions to the game will give you more flexibility in building your studio’s movie portfolio, but the gameplay itself will not change significantly from that of the original game.
If you so choose, Stunts & Effects will let you start out with a pre-built studio set in the 1960s and walk you through the new additions to the game. Of course you’re free just to dive in on your own or start from scratch, but the walkthrough the game provides is an excellent way to get some hands-on experience with the new content.
|Time to recruit a new stuntman.|
Stunts & Effects adds little motorcycle helmet icons to the genre boxes used
to specify movie genres. Dropping a writer onto the helmet icon in a script
genre box in the writers' building will cause the writer to include stunt scenes
in the movie’s script. When it comes time to cast the movie, the same icon will
appear in the casting box to let you know how many stunt people will be required
for shooting. Pick your stunt people as you do your other actors and they’ll be
ready to go when it’s time to shoot the stunt.
