Hulk Hogan's Main Event has been panned by critics. Dan Ryckert of Game Informer gave the game a score of 1 out of 10, commenting 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 gave the game a 2 out of 10, saying that "the career mode is a bore, the cartoony visual style is ugly, and the voice implementation is super-sloppy."[4] GamesRadar ranked it as the 40th worst game ever made. The staff criticized its poor Kinect implementation and the dated use of Hulk Hogan.[5] Despite this, the game still did poorly and is known to be one of the worst games released with the Kinect.
