If you're at all like us, you're sick of ever-increasing ticket prices and gimmicky new ways of combining mass transit with phobia-inducing animals. We'd rather make our own cheesy flicks with the expanded version of The Movies than pay $10 to watch the latest pap from some Hollywood hack.

In the end, the Stunts & Effects expansion is a must for moviemaker fans, since they're the ones who can take the most advantage of all these new sets and scenes to create even more imaginative movies. If you're a more casual fan of The Movies who prefers the studio-management game, you'll find that the production values and overall gameplay haven't change that much, as you'll still find yourself guiding a movie studio through the decades, from the black-and-white era to today's modern blockbusters.

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.
