What do these ratings mean?

Kojima seemed to fail at one thing in this game and that would be the actual amount of time you spend playing the game, and I dont mean watching videos which seems to be more time consuming that the amount of time you actually play the game. The game is kickass beginning to end. The moves list especially CQC is vastly improved. The story was alittle all over the place but it does sum up the whole MGS experience very nicely. I am currently playing online which I dont see a use for the Konami ID thing besides the fact that when you purchase something through the game it doesn't go to Playstations pocket but rather straight to Konami themselves, the online for this game is awesome actually got me to switch to it from COD4: Modern Combat but that is neither here nor there. The graphics are amazing and playing on 1080p just upped the experience even more in terms of visuals. The Drebin system is kinda cheesy as it only brings easy restocking of ammo and makes use of inventory items pretty much non restricted since it is so easy to replenish. Boss battles are far too easy compared to the other games. I had no challenge whatsoever in defeating any of the bosses, which was my second and last factor is giving this game a B+ I can see why some people give it and A and whatnot but I think that they could've put alittle more effort into making the game more challenging and advancing the AI on bosses. All in all a must buy for Playstation 3 and  you shouldn't be disappointed by any means but there are a few things that could be improved but from all the BS that was going around on this game in terms of Kojima vs PS3 it turned out very well.
