The game received "generally unfavorable reviews" on both platforms according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[7][8] Justin Cheng of Nintendo Power criticized the short length of the levels throughout the six environments, the enemy creatures and a lack of variety amongst similar weapons, calling it "a lackluster 3-D light-gun shooter."[5] Game Informer senior editor Jeff Cork felt the different levels played identically with nondescript targets, showed a lack of "branching paths or variations in the gameplay", and called out the 3D elements for being "a mixed blessing – the game is so offensively ugly that I didn’t want it getting any closer to me than necessary." He concluded that, "The dubious benefit of the game’s 3D effects is offset by its one-dimensional gameplay. Rail shooters don’t get much more tedious, lifeless, or ugly than Attack of the Movies 3-D."[1]
