The company made several questionable marketing decisions during its waning years (such as [[DueToTheDead being willing to foot the bill for a funeral as long as advertising is on the headstone]] and the infamous decision to [[HotterAndSexier include nudity]] in what became ''BMX XXX''; this, coupled with continuing to use his name even after he asked not to be associated with the game, angered Dave Mirra enough that he sued Acclaim for damages). The company eventually filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in September 2004, effectively shutting it down for good. Ironically, when Acclaim went under it had finished making an exceptionally good licensed game based on ''VideoGame/TheRedStar'', which was eventually picked up for publication by XS Games[[labelnote:note]]a division of Zenimax Media, parent company of Creator/BethesdaSoftworks[[/labelnote]] and released in 2007.

The name "Acclaim" is dubious among gamers, due in part to the perception of the quality of its licensed output (which, in contrast to its arcade ports, generally ranges from [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames mediocre to poor]]), most of which it published under its LJNToys, Ltd. label (in the same way {{Konami}} did with "Ultra Games," due to Nintendo's strict licensing policies during the NES era). It should be noted that Acclaim/LJN developed very few of its games. Most of the games they published were actually commissioned to external developers such as {{Rare}}, Beam Software, Pack-in Studios, and even {{Atlus}} (yes, the same people that did ''MegamiTensei'', also developed the ''Film/TheKarateKid'' game). Even then, Acclaim still bears some responsibility just for the sole fact that they published their bad games.
