About Micro Review Scores

Now that we've had a few micro reviews, it's probably about time we discussed what all these numbers mean.  Unlike many other review outlets, here at nerds-feather.com we emphatically reject grade inflation. 10s are given out infrequently, and are reserved for cultural products of extraordinary value, personal resonance with our reviewers and a clear timelessness.  9s will be more common, but still don't expect too many of them.  Anything from 6 on up is worth a look; anything below 5 is suspect.  Here's a more detailed breakdown:

10: mind-blowing/life-changing
9: very high quality/standout in its category
8: well worth your time and attention
7: a mostly enjoyable experience
6: still enjoyable, but the flaws are hard to ignore
5: equal parts good and bad
4: problematic, but has redeeming qualities
3: very little good I can say about this
2: just bad
1: really really bad
0: prosecutable as crime against humanity
