What do these ratings mean?

I'll spare the details & give out my opinions since I haven't completely finished the game, reasons why is simple, this game's a keeper, it was a birthday present & i literally got more than what I bargained for, and I'll play it and keep it as long as I goddamn want to. The Story & Setting is just plain brilliant, but just as the main review says the one discomfort i found was the fact you'll need to go detective mode because even though the environment and action is beautiful in it's detail it's hard to expect what you'll run into on the next corner considering your good play-pal The Joker laid enough boobie-traps , not many have much knowledge of the details of Arkham Asylum and what horrors it contains inside, if you don't know this place than you're literally exploring it, as some maps cannot be accessed for the time being so you're going through unknown grounds, and that literally adds to the suspense as further as you progress into this purgatory, even the doctors and staff of the asylum have a negative vibe, it's even a keeper for another great reason, they put so much goddamn effort to this, even down to the voices, by far the best batman in my opinion is Kevin Conroy, his voice for Batman is how Keith David's voice is for Spawn, they're just meant to be, so are many of the cast and crew who've worked on the classic WB cartoons. I can tell this is literally a commitment from the experienced crew that made a known classic series to those that know & love batman for who is he what he and is world is known for, and for me, playing as The Dark Knight, Altair has no idea who he be up against, Batman's just one brutal and scary entity, there's a reason he doesn't kill, I don't even want to have Batman make his way with me. because of it's graphic nature and intense dark & gothic atmosphere this is literally meant for a mature audience, it even involves strategy that even a kid will have too much time and screw ups to go over and a huge bodycount, which is more of a reason why I love this game, also thanks to the exclusive content, I can have the bat cave as a default room in PS Home.
