The game received "unfavorable" reviews according to video game review aggregator Metacritic.[17][18] The graphics, gameplay, story, menu systems, and level design were all criticized.

Writing for The Guardian, Nicky Woolf gave the Xbox version a negative review, criticizing the level design, likening it to "[What she's expect from] a four-year-old with only three different crayon colours.". Woolf also criticized the combat, calling the frequent quicktime finishers "Annoying".[16] Reviewing the PS3 version for Game Informer, Ben Reeves criticized the game, calling the menus "Labyrinthine" and equating the character model's expressions to that of "Dead fish". Reeves ended the review by calling it a "Frustrating action game with little depth".[6] Writing for Eurogamer, Dan Whitehead called the combat "Relentless" and said that "Even at its best, Clash of the Titans barely succeeds on its own terms."[5] Writing for IGN, Anthony Gallegos called the graphics "Ugly as sin" and questioned whether or not the game should have been released at retail price.[11]
