Chad Grischow of IGN said "Regardless of whether you have followed the tale from the start or this is your first taste of Madina Lake, World War III proves to be a satisfying conclusion to the tale and stands up well on its own as simply a great rock album." Kerrang! rated the album 4 Ks out of 5 and stated that "There is much to like about World War III, both in terms of its energy and its exuberant and determined quality."
