What do these ratings mean?

I'm just going to say it, Reach is f***ing Amazing
rn
rnThe graphics are improved, by a long shot, even from ODST. Your armor has paint scratches, dents and grey patches, so Bungie did well on the details.
rnThe game play is amazing, like the other Halos. And the Multiplay is simple and still works well.
rn
rnThe things I don't like however, is one of the new weapons. The Focus Rifle, the replacement for the Beam Rifle, is terrible. Its accurate, but its like the retarded bastard son of the Sentinel beam and the Beam Rifle. Its weak, overheats fast, and the only upside its its accurate and depletes shields
rn
rnAnd as the main review said, I was disappointed that the expensive-as-hell armor doesn't do much, and the Elites(My preferred Species) have no Armory to upgrades. You also can't use them out side of Invasion, Elite Slayer, or custom games/the Forge, unlike Halo 3, where they were available in most game types, if not all.
rn
rnAs for Firefight, dispite being a feature only introduced in ODST, is bigger and better, like everything else. Other modes aside from Classic Firefight(The one in ODST) there are 4 others, my favorite being "Gruntpocalpyse" which is Firefight with only grunts. They also managed to make it not be easy, dispite being only Grunts.
rn
rnForge is also Amazing, but the controls are a little different even with the Halo 3(Recon) controls. For instance, while flying in the forge mode ball, you can't move down while holding a object.
rn
rnAnd, I don't care for some changes with vehicles such as the removal of the Hornet, and replacing it with the Falcon, and the graphical changes of the Scorpian Tank and the removal of the Spectre from Halo 2, and then bringing it back smaller and weaker in Reach with the Revenant(Same color and general design, and with a plasma mortar)

All in all, the game is absolutely amazing other then a few small details. Nothing major is wrong, only my personal pet peeves with the game.
