Hulk Hogan's Main Event received "generally unfavorable reviews" according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[1] Dan Ryckert of Game Informer commented that "Kinect has a hard time recognizing many required motions, and it's nowhere near fun even when it's working perfectly."[2] Dave Rudden of Official Xbox Magazine said that "the career mode is a bore, the cartoony visual style is ugly, and the voice implementation is super-sloppy."[4] In 2013, GamesRadar+ ranked it as the 40th worst game ever made. The staff criticized its poor Kinect implementation and the dated use of Hulk Hogan.[7]
