Author of the Eleusinian Miseries.
My super rigorous scoring rubric:
1 star = terminally buggy or otherwise really not worth playing.
2 stars = some real strengths but some flaws too.
3 stars = an enjoyable game that's well worth playing.
4 stars = a great game that might just be lacking a bit of ambition or pizzazz to get it over the top.
5 stars = an amazing achievement that I'll remember for a long time to come.
