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
Terrible on almost every level
Way below average
Full of Meh
Needs a lot of work
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"
