    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]

    Since each Turtle has his own fighting style, it doesn't ever get old. [Nov 2003, p.72]

    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]

    It's a fun and fresh play. [Dec 2003, p.151]

    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.

    A mixed bag. The innovative level design and variety keep things interesting, but it's over far too quickly.

    This game has so much potential, but it falls short in a few areas. Total gametime is short, and there's no climactic end boss battle, This game has so much potential, but it falls short in a few areas. Total gametime is short, and there's no climactic end boss battle, not even on the higher difficulty levels. The gameplay is great, the minigames are a refreshing break from the usual side-scrolling fights, the individual character moves are great, cutscenes and storyline is decent, music is good. If only more prevalent bad guys from the cartoon had been weaved into the story, and the gameplay experience lenghtened, then this game would have deserved an 8 or 9. Full Review »
