Top stuff! a must-buy for PC gamers,
This review is from: The Movies (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I really don't approve of all these folk who write 5 star reviews of a game that they haven't even played. It totally skews the average and they don't have the experience to know what they're talking about, no matter how much they have researched it.
I however, HAVE played the game and can safely give it 5 stars.
Pre-release, I was little confused and intrigued as to how you would be able to create such different and personal scenes and movies. Essentially, most of the work is done in the "script" phase, where you basically decide where, who, and how things happen - There are preset animations for every scene - e.g. "Two people enter the room, shivering", or "Three people are having an argument" etc. The possible roles are represented by wooden mannequins - to assign an actor to that role, you simply drag them onto the relevant mannequin, and then they will act it out when it comes to shooting.
If this sounds restrictive, be assured that there are dozens and dozens of these preset animations - enough to create a truly unique and atmosheric film every time.
The best way to think of it is not "I must make a film around these animations" but rather "I'll think of a film how I want it, and see how I can use these tools to make it look good".
You really get the chance to be infinitely creative with this game, and soon you will be spending all day at work considering your next big blockbuster!
