Alpha and Omega: Dino Digs was panned by fans of the franchise, and became the second worst reviewed film in the franchise, just after The Great Wolf Games. Many criticisms were on the film's script and concept, being called as "insane" and "nonsensical". The animation was also criticized, with many fans stating it looked "incomplete" and "sloppy". Others who have a knowledge in dinosaurs called it "cringeworthy", because of its inaccurate and scaly meat-eaters. Tyrannosaurus rex was known to have feathers, and so was Velociraptor. The hands of the dinosaurs also point towards their stomachs, which is a common error. These inaccuracies are such seen in the more popular Jurassic Park franchise. The dinosaurs also use the incorrect tripod theropod posture occasionally, something that dropped out of modern media in the 1990s.
Despite the film's harsh fan reactions, it did received some positive reviews from a select few people, mostly focused on some of the humor and the backgrounds.
