T What do these ratings mean?

Well, let me be quite honest. This is by far, the best game I've ever played on computer.  It seems like a worthless game at first, but in sandbox mode, it's fun, and I can't stop playing it.

The first tagline says, Run the Studio. Running the Studio is great. Build anything from hot dog venders, to colossal space ship sets. The size does not matter. Also, once you hire the stars, they begin to run around and do crazy things, like get drunk, and get into such scandals as drug, alcohol, or even sex scandals. However, the movement is horrible! It takes forever just to drag something your camera view around. It's gets friggin' hopeless...

The second tagline says Shoot the Movies. Shooting Movies is all this game is about. Shoot anything from a gorey death, or a high-speed car jump across a canyon. If you like makin' hot rod movies, this is the game for you. However, the scenes seem like they need explaining, because it just doesn't seem like they run together very well, and the motion the stars make is just repetitive. Overall, this "Movie making" deal, is awesome, but it could use a little more work.

The final tagline reads Make the Stars. Making Stars is hard in the regular campaign. In the regular story, you start with $150,000, but it costs at least double that to actually make all the sets you need to make your first movie. I'm serious. In the campaign mode, you start with the Stage School, and the Job hiring office. That's it!! The sandbox mode is much better. You can choose how many stars you want, how much money you want to start out with (anything from $10,000 to $100,000,000). Overall the sandbox mode is the best part.

All in all, this games pretty awesome. It's fun, and it certainly let's your imagination run wild with ideas. It's like Hollywood is downloaded directly into you CD drive!!
