Five stars is not a terribly generous choice to chose from. With two decades of interactive fiction under my belt I decided to give -
* for a "game" that's a waste of time - not entertaining, not interactive
** for a bad game
*** for a game that doesn't qualify as "bad" but neither qualifies as "good"
**** for a good game
***** for a game that qualifies for an IF canon, that I'd recommend to IF n00bs, that should be on Wikipedia
I like good stories, good puzzles and good parsers. To be more precise: Puzzles that blend into the story and that are not hampered by a subprime parser. Think Anchorhead. Anchorhead's parser could be improved, but otherwise it was fine.
