If you haven't noticed the review rating system already, you probably haven't been reading the articles.
The ratings system works roughly as follows, ranging from 1/2 gauntlet to 5 gauntlets:
- One Half / One Gauntlet: Bad beyond imagining; without any talent, aptitude or merit.
- One And A Half / Two Gauntlets: Of mediocre quality; possessing some passing ability or merit without aspiring to new or interesting ideas.
- Two And A Half / Three Gauntlets: Of moderate ability; average to passable; possessing some invention or new ideas that seperate it from completely mediocre material, though standing below "good."
- Three And A Half / Four Gauntlets: Of good or high quality; featuring talent and excellent vision.
- Four And A Half / Five Gauntlets: Excellent; amazingly enjoyable or near-perfect (if not perfect) in execution.
Some day we might change the rating system to something more interesting.
