Masterful

Excellent

Terrible

Ever since they started, Easy Allies Reviews were ranked on a 5-star based system which ultimately put them into one of five categories.

These scores were translated into a percentage when published in review aggregators such as Metacritic and GameRankings. This generated many controversies, as they were not representative of what the Allies' actual opinions were on a given game. However, on March, 2017, the Easy Allies ranked #1 in OpenCritic's Most Trusted Publications of 2016, which was based on user votes throughout the year.

Numerical

On February, 2018, they changed the star system into a numerical scale ranging from 1 to 10 in 0.5 intervals, similar to most other review editors, in order to accommodate better with the aforementioned aggregator sites.
