FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

I have to disagree pretty strongly with some of the complaints here.  The AI is pretty dumb, but I don't think it's nearly as bad as this is suggesting.  55 speed linemen will not catch 95 speed receivers unless you are dicking around.  If you are getting beat by a 78 rated quarterback either their recievers are better than your defensive backs or you are running the wrong defense.  Overall the game is way better than '08.  At least we don't have to listen to the retarded radio broadcast for play by play any more (not that Cris Collinsworth is all that great).
