What do these ratings mean?

I'm not a big fan of horror games, in fact i played doom 3 and only finished about 3 levels before giving up, and i haven't even bothered with F.E.A.R. I've never even played a Resident Evil game up til now.

And although i've never played one before, i was willing to give this game a go considering i heard it's the only game thats worth playing ever since Metal Gear Solid 3 came out, seriously PS2 and XBOX have slowed down way too much since the end of 2004.

I wasn't at all surprised at the way it turned out, the graphics were awsome, the gameplay was worth sitting down for for at least 3 days, and the spanish yet un-civilised zombie like freaks were really scary. Although i found it really weird how a merchant would appear out of nowhere in some of the weirdest possible places. And what's he risking his life for, going to that place just to make a few bucks which he probly won't even get to spend since he'll die before he gets anywhere where he can spend it.

There were only two things wrong with the game in my opinion, (besides the whole merchant thing, i don't care about that) one was how the game starts off scary but turns into a normal action/adventure game after about half an hour of playing. This happens because the only thing scary about the game is the looks and sounds of the Spanish guys which doesn't take long to get used to. The other thing was how you run out of ammo towards the end of the game, i'm up to chapter 5-4 (which is really close to the end of the game) and i have run out of ammo for all my guns, exept for those occasional times when i pick up two or three shotgun shells (not helpful at all), i have a lot of magnum ammo, and thats not helpful either since i dont have a magnum.

But none the less, i like a good challenge (btw, if you're looking for a REAL challenge, try MGS 2 on the hardest difficulty), i know i spent most of this review complaining about the game but they're only some really small issues that a lot of people won't have to deal with. I am really looking forward to playing Resident Evil 5 just like millions of other people.
