There's a reason Itchy & Scratchy cartoons rarely occupy more than 30 seconds of any Simpsons episode: stretch the concept to the full half hour, and the ratings would plummet. It's the same for videogames. While Itchy and Scratchy appeared in a hilarious cameo on the Super NES cartridge Bart's Nightmare, here they duke it out in an interminable, multistage whackfest.
GamePro (US)
The control is the worst part. In a game of jumping and hitting, the lack of jumping attacks and the inaccurate weapons make you itch for a different game.
Game Players
Gameplay suffers from extensive repetition and poor control and, despite the large number of weapons included in the game, there are too few opportunities to pick them up. For true Simpsons fans, the Itchy and Scratchy level in Bart's Nightmare is still the best place to look for this duo.

Dem Willen von Matt Groening hätte das unselige Spieldesign dieses Loser-Produkts sicher nicht entsprochen. Die Programmierer der “bits Corporation“ haben es blendend verstanden, in wenigen Monaten ein lustloses 08/15-Spielchen mit müder Grafik, dusseliger Musikbegleitung und wenig intelligenten Gegnern hinzurotzen. Scratchy rennt andauernd völlig unmotiviert in den erhobenen Hammer, der dann öfters gar nicht trifft, weil die Kollisionsabfrage einfach zu schlecht ist. Im Sprung kann nicht geschossen werden; um Geschossen auszuweichen, könnt Ihr Euch zudem noch nicht mal ducken. Tip: Umschalten oder zur Abwechslung (ltchy und Scratchy-) Comics lesen.
The Video Game Critic
Itchy and Scratchy should have been a hilarious beat-em-up, but after just a few minutes it feels like a pointless waste of time.
