Scoring

Stars

Following the closure of GameTrailers, Easy Allies decided to move away from the 100-point system used for scoring reviews at GT. Instead, Easy Allies Reviews were ranked on a 5-star based system which ultimately put them into one of five categories.

Masterful

Excellent

Decent

Inferior

Terrible

These scores were translated into a percentage when published in review aggregators such as Metacritic and GameRankings. This generated 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

In February 2018, they switched from the 5-star system to a numerical review scale ranging from 1 to 10 with 0.5 intervals. This system is similar to most other review editors, with the change being made to better accommodate review aggregator sites and have the score more closely match the review.
