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." 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."GamesRadar ranked it as the 40th worst game ever made. The staff criticized its poor Kinect implementation and the dated use of Hulk Hogan. Despite this, the game still did poorly and is known to be one of the worst games released with the Kinect.
