Reception[change | change source]

IGN rated the game a 7 out of 10 and said ""The game's only downfall is that it's just too short. The game can be completed in just a couple of hours. However, the two-player split-screen combat mode more than makes up for the one-player mode's lack of length.""[3] The game was successful and sold over 1.08 million copies in the United States alone.[4]
