A truly solid expansion that adds to the overall experience of the game, whether playing out in the game’s goal-driven ‘campaign’ or in the sandbox mode. The ability to really customize your own movie becomes a deeper experience with Stunts & Effects. The words used to describe the original title – addictive, and just plain fun – still apply. Owners of The Movies will want to add this expansion.

So it really simply comes down to whether you're planning to play The Movies as a simulation game or use it as a creative tool. All of the additional creative sets, scenes, and the rest are certainly going to appeal to any movie maker. The same goes for the addition of the free-camera system and nifty new special effects. There's some really wonderful additions that should push any films to a new level of excitement which make it very easy to recommend picking this up if what you want is more robust options for making movies.

Stunts & Effects is an expansion, and therefore will only be of interest to fans of the original game, and as such does its job of extending the game pretty well. The new sets, vehicles and costumes add another element to the movie making pie, and while the same old problems remain, the gameplay is as engrossing as ever. Wannabe movie makers will also find their lives taken away from them thanks to the newly improved movie making tool.
