The Fight received "generally unfavorable reviews" according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[4] Joystiq said, "Take this mess of iffy hit detection and blocking, tack on perfunctory online multiplayer and a half-realized match gambling system, and you have a game ... sort of."[14] IGN said the game was "a mess that is not only frustrating to play – it is also tiring and boring."[13] In Japan, Famitsu gave it a better score of two sevens, one six, and one eight for a total of 28 out of 40.[7]
