  1. It's not as much fun as the TV show, but there is some fun to be had in this title.
  2. Xiaolin Showdown has its problems, but it's generally a solid beat-'em-up.
  3. There's a surprising amount of depth to the combat, which only makes the sluggish movement and decision to use an isometric view more maddening. [Mar 2007, p.81]
  4. Harmless button-mashing fun with a fair amount of content. [Sept 2007, p.85]
  5. If your kids are looking for a game based on a familiar television show, I'd recommend Avatar: The Last Airbender on any of its available platforms. There are bigger, better, and far more entertaining games out there than this.
  6. The result is hinky control as you try to fight wave after wave of monotonous enemies and navigate past lasers and pits. [Feb. 2007, p.95]

    Maybe with an original story for the game, fans of the show could overlook the mediocre at best gameplay and just button mash their way through it.
