    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 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 The controls look terrible, special moves are utterly useless, and I like the commentary but I think it's been outdated since where the series left off.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. Expand

  1. It's neither run nor funny - you're better off spending $20 on something else. [Jan 2004, p.125]
  2. It reeks of "shovel-ware," a game that was stripped of both function and price then sent to retailers in the hopes of turning a quick buck. The gameplay is shallow and often needlessly frustrating, with few attacks really being entertaining, but most lacking any sort of humorous overtone.

    What’s the maximum amount of fun that can be had by battling over the top celebrities represented as clay model figures doing something similar to wrestling but not quite wrestling? Not a lot.
