  1. In some ways, this version of TMNT 2 is better than its console brother. The game play is straightforward, fun, and action packed, all without the trials of camera issues and other problems that the console version endures.
  2. Some of you may be in for a shock when you dive into TMNT2: Battle Nexus and discover that it's just as much a puzzle game as it is a Turtles-inspired beat-'em-up.
  3. A good title for a younger sibling or cousin, a bad one for a platform fanatic.

    While the incorporation of stealth may not be the strongest feature in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, it's probably the only change worth noting. Although there are other modes for you to try, they're really not worth the time. [Dec 2004, p.134]
  5. Battle Nexus is not the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles best effort but if you're looking for a slightly better version of the game I suggest you forget the console versions and pick this one up instead.
  6. Nintendo Power
    Stealth, gymnastics and puzzle-solving play a role in the fast-paced fun. [Dec 2004, p.154]
  7. Be warned this game is for true "Turtle" believers, younger children, and maybe the die-hard 2D fanatic. If you do not fall into one or more of these categories, I'd advise you to look elsewhere for your on-the-go action fix.

    That the game outperforms its 3D siblings seems to have happened almost by default: the other games are so poor that this mediocre product seems sterling by comparison. Taken on its own merits, though, it's just not particularly good.
  9. Play Magazine
    We're treated to slow-paced gameplay hindered by arbitrary rules - having to start every stage without your weapon, and being forced to sneak around the level to find it, is a huge contrivance. [Nov 2004, p.90]
