Game Vortex writes: "Astro Boy: Omega Factor is one of the Game Boy Advance's best games. It's fast-paced, challenging, endlessly replayable, and above all, a total blast to play. Astro Boy: The Video Game tries to be Omega Factor, but it doesn't measure up to the standard. That's not saying much; Omega Factor is a tremendously great action/arcade game that set the bar out of reach for most other games in the genre. Unfortunately, Astro Boy: The Video Game isn't much more than another film cash-in. Nearly everything in this game is stale, uninteresting and forgettable."
