Why are some reviews out of 5 stars but others out of 4?

I did a search on this topic but can’t find the thread so if there is one please direct me to it.  Why do some reviews have a possible 4 star rating but others a 5?  How do you decide on what is better or higher ranked review wise?  Just curious.

They’re all supposed to be on a scale to 5 stars.

Do you have any examples of reviews with a possible 4 star rating???

If you go to the link: http://www.adventuregamers.com/topreviewed

Then go to the 4th page (the first three pages have 5 possible stars) but then they start with 4 possible stars on the 4th page.  Also some of the Walking Dead episodes have out of 4 stars but others are out of 5.

They’re all rated out of 5 stars. The list you refer to shows only the actual score. If a game got 4 stars, that’s all that appears. If a game got 4.5, it needs to show a fifth star just to show the extra half.

Ok…makes sense.  Thanks for the reply.
