What do these ratings mean?

I guess that I was expecting a little more out of this game, what with all the hype surrounding it. But a strategy game with all the strategy game stripped out of it so it is console friendly just isn't doing it for me. I love the concept, but I need a little bit more depth before I can consider this a good game. Is it fun? Sure. Is it a great game? not yet.

UPDATE: Played the full game at a friends today, and my opinion has not really changed. The game is pretty short, and the simplistic controls still make it really hard for me to get into. I am also feeling like this game is not  going to have a lot of "come back and play" power to it.
