  1. Well, it's not all that wild and/or wacky. In all actuality, it's kinda mundane and uninteresting.
  2. A tough but unrewarding arcade-action game that's fun to look at and worth checking out..for about 10 minutes. [Nov 2004, p.144]
  3. 45
    Quirk enthusiasts will be disappointed, mainstream gamers will only find more to support their suspicions about those "weird" games, and Capcom is in danger of believing that small, strange games like this won't do well.
  4. Where "Gregory" and "Joe" were as often inventive and ingenious as they were incomparable to anything else on the shelves, Under The Skin's clever thinking dried up before it even made it off the blackboard.
  5. 40
    Unlike the sublime, budget-friendly "Katamari Damacy," this game sells for full price. It may be worth a rental, but Under the Skin proves that being simple, weird, and quirky just isn’t good enough on its own.
  6. Unfortunately, the erratic camera is annoying and the game too quickly becomes repetitive.
  7. Better suited as a free online Flash game than something sold at retail. It fails to live up to its odd premise and relies too heavily on being offbeat, ultimately turning into more of a cute diversion than a full-fledged game.
  8. 26
    It’s a sad waste of programming, and I still shower twice daily in the hopes that the stench of the game will come off. It’s ultimately like a fungal infection on DVD – foul-smelling, painful, and a relief to dispose.

They should have more levels adapted from popular movies though and more funny and authentic levels. Please manufacture and market more games like this! Maybe a sequel under the skin 2!.
