  1. I love the show as does the little Bearer, but the characters are just not enough to overcome the repetitive, flawed gameplay.

    Only the most feeble of gamers or the very young will get any challenge out of this game. It should have been a mini game.
  3. The collision detection in this game is also downright horrible. You will punch an enemy for 10 minutes before you land a single punch.
  4. Not the worst thing we've ever played for the GBA, since unlike "Mortal Kombat Advance", it actually works. But still, the idea was terrible and the presentation doesn't help.

    Re-creates the show's fun art style but offers little in the way of engaging gameplay. [Feb 2004, p.154]
  6. A game so utterly devoid of challenge that actually calling it a game almost seems too generous. There's just nothing here beyond a monotonous, pedestrian affair, and it can be completed in a couple of hours with only the slightest of efforts.
  7. Just a very, very bad game. The included battery save feature is about the only good thing about it, since it means that you can shut the game off without fear that you'll have to retread the same boring levels next time you pick it up.
  8. A lame-ass game. Mucha Lucha: Mascaritas of the Lost Code is a horrible piece of work that should have never been released.

    Eight-bit "Double Dragon" was more fun and more complex than this ostensibly 32-bit outing. What are they doing with all those bits, anyway? [Dec 2003, p.104]
  10. 20
    The action is so awful that it's only swallowable in extremely short bursts, and having that save RAM means that players can turn this sucker off without remorse.
  11. Even the most die-hard fans of the series will quickly become disappointed and bored to tears soon thereafter. Very little effort was put into the game’s design or implementation, so you shouldn't put any effort into buying it.
  12. Pocket Games

    I'd be embarrassed to gift it to a drooling infant - Lucha is irresponsibly bad. [Spring 2004, p.44]
  13. I absolutely, without a doubt, hate this game. It’s incredibly easy, can be beaten with no problem in less than three hours, and is above all else, not fun.

    Oh, what a crappy game it is! Not fun at all and way (WAY) too easy. Mierda from the beginning to the end. I did not expect much, for the TV Oh, what a crappy game it is! Not fun at all and way (WAY) too easy. Mierda from the beginning to the end. I did not expect much, for the TV series is a pointless waste of ink, but crap like this makes you think they WANTED to make the lousiest game ever. And by the way; LEARN SOME SPANISH AT ALL! I have heard better spanish in Taco Bell restaurants. A bloody waste of plastic and circuit cards (and money, if you are REALLY unlucky). Oh, and it have a battery. That makes it not just garbage, but TOXIC garbage. One of the lamest games for one of the greatest game systems. Triste, muy triste, os digo Hasta Pronto. Full Review »

    The show sucks and so does the game.
