“It holds up surprisingly well and is a blast to watch. The character design is mind-blowing, the animation is great, and the fact that the episodes need to be watched chronologically make it more satisfying.”
-David Harley, Bloody Disgusting
“Within the first ten minutes you know who all the major players are, their motivations, and we’re in, we immediately know the plot of the episode, and it gets going. And, at the behest of series creator Gary Goddard, near-flawless CGI narration bookends each episode.”
– Dawn Hunt , DVD Verdict
“”The cancellation of the original SKELETON WARRIORS action figure line was one of the biggest tragedies in the toy world”.
