Dan LeRoy from AllMusic found the album "overlong and musically malnourished" with its track listing and overuse of lazy sampling but gave credit to Romeo's charm on songs like "True Love" and "2-Way", concluding that he should follow in the footsteps of Will Smith and go into acting instead.[1] Jon Caramanica, writing for Rolling Stone, said that Game Time "doesn't have much to recommend it, but if nothing else, Romeo has got his target demo on lock."[3] Robert Ford of Entertainment Weekly felt throughout the album that "an overabundance of samples and fluff, not to mention unskilled flow, proves Romeo is still lil’ league."[2]
