  1. Fans of the series will no doubt be disappointed with the lousy gameplay and short and shallow presentation.
  2. Celebrity Deathmatch's biggest problem isn't its timing, but, rather, it's the absolutely horrid gameplay and complete lack of any worthwhile features.
  3. Save your money by just throwing beer cans at the television. [Feb 2004, p.77]
  4. Interesting for about 10 minutes. [Feb 2004, p.85]
  5. 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]
  6. The worst fighting game (and pretty much the worst game) I have ever insulted my hard drive with. [PC Zone]

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