    What I found most disappointing was the loss of the claymation feel and the sense of personality of each celebrity--in other words, the elements that make the TV show so memorable.
  2. Fans of the series will no doubt be disappointed with the lousy gameplay and short and shallow presentation.
  3. Celebrity Deathmatch's biggest problem isn't its timing, but, rather, it's the absolutely horrid gameplay and complete lack of any worthwhile features.
  4. Interesting for about 10 minutes. [Feb 2004, p.85]
  5. Save your money by just throwing beer cans at the television. [Feb 2004, p.77]
  6. Worst of all, this is a fighting game in which the fighting is neither exciting nor funny. The controls are a wreck, whether you're playing using a keyboard or a gamepad. [Jan 2004, p.119]
  7. The worst fighting game (and pretty much the worst game) I have ever insulted my hard drive with. [PC Zone]

    Well , i think this game is for age 5-10 because you can finish this game in 1hour and you don't get that clay feeling. Another thing is that if you create-a-celebrity there are only 2 fight set to choose from....really bad.... Expand

    For year 2004 this game sucks... Even old Mortal Combat 3 is a LOT better than this one.
