T What do these ratings mean?

Ok so I just got the game thinking "this is gonna be awesome, a brand new type of Sim game." (I love Sim games by the way.) I thought it was going to be primarily based on making movies, and I thought making cool movies would be a lot easier. I was saddly mistaken. The game basically starts off(campaign mode of course) in the 1920's, dawn of the film age. I started thinking WTF! I really hated the whole black and white crap. I can't imagine how long it must take to advance in time long enough to make really cool movies. You would have to play for hours...or atleast play ALOT. Another thing, the game in my opinion COMPLETELY fails to deliver well enough in movie customization. It's so annoying trying to find the right scene that will make a movie actually look like the scenes connect somehow. Lastly, the game is annoyingly focused on making your stars happy. Which half the time you have no flippin clue of how to do that. I try everything just to make them happy and nothing seems to work. So what your left with is a game that had potential but lost somewhere down the road of production. The game is fun sometimes but half the time your left with a feeling of wanting something better. I really hope that by the time I get to a more recent time in movie history in the game it'll be more fun.
