Galerians: Ash received mostly poor or average reviews.

Critics agreed that graphics were "technically impressive with some fantastic looking areas", with "rock-solid sixty frames per second, even during boss battles". Although critics noted the repetitive environments, "everything had a very similar look and setup to it regardless of the room or area".

The sound to Galerians: Ash was mostly made up of industrial noises and clanging sounds. IGN stated that "the game music is pretty sparse, but what's there is decent". But IGN also noted that "the voice acting is missing real human emotion".

The major complaints focused on the gameplay. IGN noted that "this combat system makes no logical sense", while others critics did not like the charging system and lack of dodging. Critics also disliked "mixture of puzzles with battle" which create an artificially difficult game. Critics also noted that "many puzzle solutions being a little too vague and items being hard to find which leads to more running around and backtracking than action or progress". Several complaints were also aimed at camera issues, "there are just too many occasions where its spin causes confusion, especially when locked onto enemies".

Famous quotes containing the words reception and/or critical:

    To the United States the Third World often takes the form of a black woman who has been made pregnant in a moment of passion and who shows up one day in the reception room on the forty-ninth floor threatening to make a scene. The lawyers pay the woman off; sometimes uniformed guards accompany her to the elevators.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)

    I know that I will always be expected to have extra insight into black texts—especially texts by black women. A working-class Jewish woman from Brooklyn could become an expert on Shakespeare or Baudelaire, my students seemed to believe, if she mastered the language, the texts, and the critical literature. But they would not grant that a middle-class white man could ever be a trusted authority on Toni Morrison.
    Claire Oberon Garcia, African American scholar and educator. Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B2 (July 27, 1994)
