    I admit it was entertaining the first few battles. Then it got dull. It was the same thing over again, the story mode was horrible, most of the gotcha bots were useless, and the camera and controls are horrible. I'm sorry, stay away. This game's best area is multiplayer, and I can name 30 GC games off the top of my head that have better multiplayer.

    Gotcha Force has all the requisite cute and vibrant stylings of another Japanese phenomenon, but it's let down by a pallid game dynamic. [Jan 2004, p.99]
  2. Has to be the most underrated, overlooked game of the year. Ever since Power Stone died with the Dreamcast, there hasn't really been an entertaining 3D four-person melee fighting game. Gotcha Force takes the Power Stone-type genre to the next level.
  3. Fans of "Power Stone" or "Smash Brothers" should especially be interested in the frantic battle action Gotcha Force has to offer.
