  1. If you were stranded on a desert island and could have either a container of Silly Putty or a PlayStation 2, a monitor and Celebrity Deathmatch, you'd be better off choosing the putty.
  2. The game does have its perks, and those would all belong to the graphics, which are very well done and match the TV's character design.

    Is MTV making a death wish by putting a fantastic clay animated series into a video game? That's what happens when it comes to bad video gamesIs MTV making a death wish by putting a fantastic clay animated series into a video game? That's what happens when it comes to bad video games based on a TV-adapted series of the same name. With all do respect, I love Celebrity Deathmatch. It's more like an homage to violent video games like Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat, and Dead or Alive. But the video game of Celebrity Deathmatch is quite possibly a boneheaded mistake. The graphics, the music, and the celebrities are kinda good, but they should've picked all of the celebrities from seasons 1-4. The controls look terrible, special moves are utterly useless, and I like the commentary but I think it's been outdated since where the series left off. This is one of the worst video games of the decade and sometimes Referee Mills Lane always says the same line over again "Let's Get It On." Well, for that point, not in this ring or this pile of junk. Full Review »

    Without doubt, one of the worst games I have ever played. I completed it fully in 33 minutes and the replay value was completely nil. And Without doubt, one of the worst games I have ever played.

    This game blew worse ass then I do after eatting 2 bowls of chili, 5 bean burritos, 2 loaves of garlic bread, and 600 rotten eggs. I would This game blew worse ass then I do after eatting 2 bowls of chili, 5 bean burritos, 2 loaves of garlic bread, and 600 rotten eggs. I would actually have to say that I believe I am most likely 40% dumber now after playing it. Don't touch it...put your wallet back in your pocket and take your girlfriend or perhaps blow-up doll if you are like that...out to eat and dance. Full Review »
