What do these ratings mean?

For those of you who have read some of my reviews, you may already know that i am not a big racing fan. but burnout revenge's crazy mix of causing havok and bolting for a finish line made me forget that i was playing a racing game.

its great remodeled graphics make the game even more appealing to the masses. who can resist the clean look of of a shining new car smash and trash itself untill there is almost no paint left. its a beautiful thing. the differant lands that youll be traveling look stunning even at 200MPH.

as far as the gameplay goes, its just about the same thing as its younger sibling, but with a few little twists. unfortunetly there are a few preoblems with these tweaks(such as traffic checking.....ive been in a car accident before and let me tell you, slaming into something moving 35MPH slower then you is enough to total an explorer). but of course some things open more opertunities to plaster someone to a wall.

online play is a great way to test your skills. going head to head with other people can be very diffecult if you dont know what your doing.  unfortunetly there is a small problem all EA games have: they are very anal about connectivity. that means no firewall. and of course that is a little annoying.

overall i think this game is great just like the third one (there is an insult in there with that compliment: JUST LIKE THE THIRD ONE). this game can be played for quite a while even if an experienced gamer is playing it.
