  1. A fun action game that improves on flaws of the previous turtle games. This is definitely worth a weekend rental or purchase for turtle fans!
  2. This is a fun little romp that captures the feeling of the old school arcade game, while adding some features that keep the game from feeling too dated.
  3. Mutant Nightmare is simply a fun game. It doesn't bring anything revolutionary to the table, but it is very entertaining.
  4. 65
    Levels are often quite redundant and boring after just a few minutes, players can feel as if they've already seen and done everything.
  5. The only thing that would really make it worthwhile to me is playing through far enough to unlock Turtles in Time and then playing that. It's sad when a game made ten years ago can out-perform one made today.
  6. 55
    It's a vapid action game without the refined control and visual flair required of a game with no soul.
  7. It does offer the upgrade system which redeems it, but overall the game is kind of boring.
  8. To its credit, Mutant Nightmare is a touch better than the last game, "Battle Nexus," in that it doesn't force-feed you a gaggle of terribly clunky platforming sequences to try to keep things interesting. But beyond that meager distinction, this still isn't a very enjoyable game.
  9. 50
    As nightmares go, this one ranks right up there with the one about entering the schoolyard pantsless, and perhaps even on fire. The turtles deserve better, and its unfortunate this game extends their bad luck streak.
  10. Even the classic "TMNT: Turtles in Time" bonus arcade game doesn't run as smoothly as it should. [Jan 2006, p.114]

    Not quite what i wanted, to start with it didn't felt like the first Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles from 2003, that by normal saying, it was hell of a fun game. There wasn't any motivation to beat the game, too uninspired. Full Review »
