  1. Each turtle has his own attacks and skills, plus his own unique set of stages, and it's all tied together with great looks and sounds that make TMNT feel like a really polished SNES game - not a bad thing at all from where I sit. [Nov 2003, p.100]
  2. 80
    Though the Turtles may have aged almost 20 years, their look is as sharp and clean as when they first jumped out of the sewers. From the crazy animated ninjitsu moves to the colorful levels, the Turtles never looked so good on a small screen.
  3. The boss battles and platforming challenges vary just enough, and the minigames (such as the side-scrolling shooter level and the "Excitebike"-inspired motorcycle race) are great. [Dec 2003, p.104]
  4. If there is one major complaint it's that the game is too short. It can be completed in an afternoon and there's virtually no replay value at all.
  5. The graphics are surprisingly good and showcase exactly what the Gameboy Advance is capable of.
  6. 60
    The gameplay is quite good, with each turtle possessing his own style of gameplay, but the overall redundancy and ease that the game offers up is simply inexcusable.
  7. But with all the complaints, the game is a hoot while it lasts, though it’s over before you really have a chance to get into it.
