The game received primarily negative reviews across all platforms, with many reviewers arguing the plot was incomprehensible unless one was familiar with the film and/or novel. Other common criticisms included graphical glitches, poor gameplay, and level design, bugs, and a general sense that the game was rushed to release before it was ready. It sold well.
