Crap is too good of a word for this game
Ok now it's crap
Incredibly horrible game
A little less incredibly horrible
Terrible on every level

Could have been better
Pretty damn good
So damn great you'd steal from your mom for it
As close to perfect as possible being that there's no perfect game but this game is so much more than just "great"
