Help System (Simplicity)
0. No help system
1. Some help, but you want to scratch your eyes out.

4. Help system is text based, but fairly helpful.
5. Visual help as you go with the option to turn it off when you are ready.

Controls (Interface)
0. Controls are completely confusing
1. Controls are extremely complex and too many to map on a normal keyboard.

3. The menu system is usable. I hardly noticed any inconsistencies.
4. The menu system is fairly good. I had no real issues finding what I wanted.
5. The menu system is pristine! The team that put this together should be rewarded!

Grinding vs Emersion (How emersed will I be to keep the grinding off my mind)
0. The grind is so long, that I can not possibly play it.
1. The grind is long, and the emersion is boring.
2. The grind is not too bad, but you still want to shoot yourself after playing.
3. The grind is fair, but the emersion is less then exciting.
4. The grind is not an issue, I am excited to see where the game takes me.
5. What grind?

0. Yes
