GameSpot's Justin Calvert praised the game's fast action and its online play. 1UP.com's David Ellis commented that the physics engine improved the gameplay, and made punches feel more realistic. GameSpy's Will Tuttle noted the game's "stunning visuals", and praised the online gameplay.

Criticisms were mostly focused towards the single player aspects of the game.
