** The realistic-looking baseballers and the cartoony-looking Nicktoons don't really mesh together.

* [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch Complaining About Games You Don't Play]]: Many people have unfairly judged the game after watching the trailer.


* FanDumb / UnpleasableFanbase: Hoo boy. Since most of the shows represented in this game have their own FanDumb and [[UnpleasableFanbase Unpleasable Fanbases]], this was to be expected...
** "X is not in, so that makes the game not worthwhile" and "X is the only reason this game is worth getting" are common complaints.
*** Related to the above is the common complaint of the absense of {{Doug}}, despite the fact that he is now owned by {{Disney}}.
