Although the game boasted original soundtrack music by Brian May (former guitarist of Queen), only a short intro from The Dark appeared in the final release, while the actual in-game score was done by Mirage. While May did in fact record a full soundtrack to the game, his record company EMI requested numerous delays, which consequently prompted Mirage to proceed without the music rather than having to reschedule the release date.

While Rise of the Robots received many accolades for its state-of-the-art graphic design, it was almost universally panned by video game critics who found it to be incredibly frustrating. Many were unimpressed by the game's extremely obtuse controls. In addition, each android had a very small set of standard actions and were therefore largely dull to play.
