What do these ratings mean?

I only played  the first few levels, but unfortunetly Darksiders never really became more than a grand God of War ripoff. Many will say it takes a lot from Zelda, but I never felt it. With poor level design, button mashy combat, crate-pushing puzzles and a bland story, there was nothing that screamed Zelda at me. There was a little Panzer Dragoon there too, but even that couldn't technically or even visually live up to a seven year-old game. A decent rental to be sure, that is if you can find all of this to be worth your time.
