A guide to the 5-star rating system used for the Runker’s reviews:

***** (5 stars) – Outstanding – Can’t think of a way (within reason) this could be better.

**** (4 stars) – Above Average – Well done, but some thing(s) not quite right.
*** (3 stars) – Average – Competent execution, but not inspiring

** (2 stars) – Fair – Inconsistent execution

* (1 star) – Poor – Good idea, badly executed, or poor idea with some technical merit.
0 (no stars) – Awful – No redeeming qualities (this one only gets occasional use).
Half-points are to be avoided whenever possible.
