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.

Pirates and Ninjas and Aliens, Oh My!, by John Cater   October 3, 2020
"Shambolic, horribly implemented. If the storyline wasn't on rails you'd never get beyond the first room. Plus, the story didn't grab me."

Draculaland, by Robin Johnson   October 3, 2020
"Robin Johnson has a lot of quirky ideas, and within the severe limitations of the format of his game (see below) the writing is amusing,..." - See the full review
