What do these ratings mean?

Gears of War is one of the best video games I've ever played.  The first time I played it was with my brother, who just got his xbox360 at the time.  It was the first game he ever got and boy was it awesome.  My favorite(and most hilarious) part is when you screw up the active reload and your character randomly yells a cuss word like **** or dammit because you screwed it up.  My other favorite thing to do is shoot the enemies knees so they buckle, and then walk up and press x.  That's fun, because it shows a cinematic and your person(Dom or Marcus) will step on the enemies head.  The bad thing about the game is everything you do to the a.i. it can do to you.  If you chainsaw someone, the a.i. can chainsaw you.  If you can rush their cover by jumping over it, or if you run around their cover, you may find yourself being rushed yourself!  This makes it more challenging, because, frankly, this game on Casual isn't that hard.  Granted, some parts take more time than others(especially on co-op) but I only just got it and I beat it in pretty much one night(non-stop).  Also, get the Halo2 soundtrack(vol.1) and play the song Blow Me Away right before the last boss battle.  Right as your person says "Let's Do This", the hard rock guitar riffs will start.  That song also works with pretty much every single big battle in that game.  Turn it on next time you play!
