GameSpot’s Multiverse of Madness review rated the film an 8/10.

“Despite the unevenness of presentation, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a fresh and fun take on the MCU and, hopefully, a hopeful indication of things to come,” said reviewer Mason Downy. “While Phase 4 certainly hasn’t been shy about taking risks and playing around with styles and genres thus far, Multiverse of Madness represents Marvel’s most extreme departure from the mold in some key ways (while, unfortunately, it’s deeply indebted to the formula in others.) It feels exciting to think of the MCU becoming less prized with its toys and allowing more directors to start pulling at the seams.”
