In the issue 114 from Arcadia, it was featured at ninth in its Top Ten Video Games list. Critical reception to the game was positive due to its large number of playable characters, although mixed opinions were given to its aging graphics. Despite lacking a plot, the large interaction between characters has been praised for adding depth to the game.
