What do these ratings mean?

I've been playing NFS for over 10 years, and I think this is the best edition yet...the cockpit cam is great, and the physics are amazing. This is my first NFS on a next-gen system, and I'm blown away by the realism. Some of the crashes are a bit too unrealistic, but that's part of the fun - as far as the controls, they really feel real. Overall, I'd say this is the perfect mix I look for between arcade-style fun and simulation-style realism.

Also nice to see a good soundtrack, I was thrilled that they used Rootbeer's "Under Control" – that's definitely an awesome under-the-radar jam.
