    The result will please gamers that are fans of the show or those searching for a simple fighting game, though fans looking for the next incarnation of "WWF No Mercy" will have to keep waiting.
  2. While UM doesn't have the depth to go head-to-head with classic Aki titles from the days of Nintendo 64, it has done a great job of capturing the ludicrous fun of the show, with cel-shaded graphics and faithful character designs.

    Every bit as silly and fun as the Ultimate Muscle cartoon series. [July 2003, p.145]
  4. There is very little depth, and although the multiplayer mode holds promise as a fun pick-up-and-play diversion at parties, there are better wrestling games, and better fighting games to be had. [Import]

    It's totally spastic, and not in a good "Marvel vs. Capcom" way, but rather in a button-mashing, uncontrollably random sort of way. [Aug 2003, p.76]

However it This is one of the best wrestling games I have ever played. Now I am not a fan of the series so I was a little shaky buying it. However it was great. It has relatively easy controls for younger people it has an interesting array of characters and the stories, despite being short are great. Also there are plenty of modes to keep it from ever becoming boring. There are also a couple of secret characters and toys to unlock. Full Review »
