Critic Reviews for Deadly Games: Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

Deadly Games is aimed at fans of loud, violent and broadly acted Saturday morning animation. Everyone else, duck.

If you take the world of video games seriously, "Deadly Games" will probably have a certain appeal for you. If you don't, then this series will not only seem silly but far too violent and noisy, one tiresome, unbelievable explosion after another.

What makes this show a kick is the villains.

August 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It's frothy, silly and violent - but it does have some appeal as a mindless romp through fantasy.

August 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The result is a flimsy but cheerful fantasy. It may prove diverting for youngsters, but adults will find it long-winded and rinky-dink.

August 16, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Despite the vidgame premise, there are only isolated bells and whistles, which are certainly overshadowed by the strong action and stunt sequences.
