Synthetic Error is a rambling exercise in overt opining, a showcase of cheap invective and blinkered criticism. If that sounds like the sort of thing you would enjoy, stay tuned for writing on Movies, Games, Music, and the occasional wandering essay. Mostly though I’m just trying to get down deep and figure out what makes everything tick.
In my opinion, review scores are a form of polemic. Especially the ones that give 3 significant figures on their subjective opinion. However, I respect that a few digits helps you frame and quickly digest the information in a review. Therefore I include scores at a low resolution, out of 4.
4/4 – Amazing. A defining experience not to be missed.
3/4 – Great and/or spectacular. Well done, though some quibbles exist.
2/4 – Mediocre or merely good enough. May have parts that are annoying, irrational, or poorly made which detract from the whole
1/4 – Trash. Likely guilt of the the worst sin of all; it is boring and dull.
0/4 – Is anything truly irredeemable? Probably reserved for works where there are serious technical problems.
