What do these ratings mean?

This game has received to much hype its astounding. But I can't help but shake the feeling that it is missing something big. Like there is something that everyone chooses to overlook and grade high anyway. because of this, I will be telling everyone what I didn't like about the game to maybe sort it out for myself.
    Now, i could just quikcky list what i didn't like, but that would be complaining about the game is. its better to give a reason so I'll start with weapons. there plenty of weapons to choose, from the shotgun to an m16 you can really pick your favorites. but there is something that continuously bothered me. i could focus my aim very well, where as there was no aim button. no this is something that i prefer, its not to say that i hate it and want it changed, i just like being able to focus and pop off a few rounds in a guys head so he'll go down quicker. it is still quite possible in this game (to make head shots without focus aiming) but it makes it more twichy and that's something I don't like.the next thing is that unless you have an internet connection, this games game play will be signifigantly reduced. I've played it all and i can tell you hen playing co-op on a single screen, it loses its charm pretty fast. there is also the lack of Being the zombies unless your online. To me, this is a big issue. sure the game is meant for online play but at the same time at least try to throw some more work in the single player as well. not teveryone has internet and to leave them out downright sucks.
    But back to where it really excels. the atmosphere, the multi player, and the replayability. the atmosphere in this game is incredible. with music being erie and the graphics being dark, it really makes you feel like your fighting for your life in a life or death situation. and when you bring friends along, you usually end up losing somewhere between 4-8 hours of your life without even realizing it. you must keep an eye on each other for fear of them being trapped by one of the other zombies! you can really go at it here with your friends and watch the zombies fall. and right there, there's another good thing. being able to play as zombies amongst the horde really adds some fun to it, especially if the people using the horde know what they are doing. using hunters, smokers, boomers, tanks, and witches, you have plenty of power in your attacks. and with such a strong multiplayer, it has such a high replay-ability that it earns a better grade then i was going to give it. you could play for hours upon hours with friends like i did and still talk about doing it again the next day!
    Well, i hope you found this informative and I hope to see you playing online. no if you'll excuse me..... i have some "zombie apocolypse" things to get to.
