The game had mediocre reception. GameSpot said "This 2D fighting game is a real blast from the past, but its big cast of fairly interesting characters and its online play can make it worthwhile for NeoGeo fans." IGN said "It's got lots of moves, a deep fighting system, and the online play is a big plus, but it really isn't that enjoyable in the end." Gamespy summarised it as "A competent port of an iffy game in a good series", while EGM said "this classic weapons-based fighting series has lost much of its soul. While the original cast moves as fluidly as ever, the newer faces are the epitome of mediocre design and animation". The Official Xbox Magazine said it was "an obsolete relic". Metacritic rated the Xbox version of the game 58% based on 29 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".
