AMF Bowling 2004 received mediocre to poor reviews from critics. GameRankings and Metacritic both gave it a score of 48% and 48 out of 100 respectively. Hilary Goldstein, writing for IGN, called it "a budget title with no frills, weak animations, terrible character models, and a lack of visual pop." Russ Garbutt of Xbox Nation magazine said that the game's physics and sound effects are realistic, but complained about "the pseudo-honky-tonk music, which makes players feel as if they're in the middle of a hillbilly bar or, alternately, the eighth circle of hell" and called the visuals "yawn inspiring".
