What do these ratings mean?

Well I only played a little of this game because I neither own the game, nor own an XBOX 360. I just play it whenever  I go to my friend's house. All that can be said about Quake 4 is that if you like gore, you'll be in love with this game. That's a nickname I made for myself, Gorey Corey. Yeah my name's Corey. Get used to it. And there is a frickin' "e" after the "r" and before the "y". Now can you people remember that. Because if anyone im's me, emails me, or writes down my name and spells it C-O-R-Y I will frickin' kill you. Either that or I'll kick you to Stroggos and let those alien dudes that you got to fight through every breathing second in Quake 4 do the job. I'm not crazy, maybe the dude that did the F review is. I don't know.

Now back to the game. Quake 4 has some major faults in it. 1)You can't melee attack. 2)You can't use grenades, you just get a frickin' grenade launcher. 3)All of the above. The fact that you can't throw a grenade is tiresome because it would probably help, and when you run out of ammo, all you got is a stupid little pistol with unlimited ammo, but when faced against powerful enemies, you're dead. The control scheme is just too low. You can either quick select guns with the D-PAD or you can cycle them by using RB and LB. The developers should've just kept it at switching weapons with the D-PAD and letting RB throw grenades, and LB melee attacking.

And then theres the gorey graphics so that kicks up the score.

In basic you're a marine and you're being sent to the home planet of the Strogg. You start out with the stupid pistol and then you eventually get an Assualt Rifle. I must say that the Assualt Rifle is the weapon you will use most in the game. It's the only weapon that has a flashlight, of which comes in handy as much of the environment is poorly lit, and apart from it's automatic output when using it's scope it makes a good sniper rifle as it slows down the shots to only shooting one shot at a time. Could still use grenades though. After that you go through some more hallways. And then you do even more.

And then after a portion of the game you get to the plot twist. The rebuilt Strogg leader beats you up and takes you to a sort of assembly line. You see the Strogg are simplay corpses infused with machinery to stay alive. So they take the remains of the humans they killed and turn them into Strogg soldiers. Well the same happens to you. It's EXTREMELY gruesome to watch the process as what the game does is instead of making the whole thing  a cutscene it actually treats it as gameplay. So you watch from your helpless marine's eyes as saws and other things like that cut off your legs and put robotic ones on in their place, drill holes into your chest(see I told you it gets gorey), and then.... well I don't think I should go on. You can probably find the whole thing on youTube.

Well anyway instead of making you part of the Strogg military and letting you fight against the humans a couple of your marine bodies break you out before you are programmed to be a Strogg soldier. So your agility and physical abilties are increased and you look like a corpse, but you retain your state of mind. What a shame that would have been cool to be able to switch sides.

Technically, it's not worth playing if you are faint of heart, if you get scared from playing Halo then you definitly shouldn't play this game. But still I wonder, what happened to Quake 3?
