    The angles are fabulous -- never staying in one place too long while framing the action with cinematic flair. [Nov 2003, p.91]
  2. The license alone saves the effort from mediocrity.
  3. TMNT doesn't wear its nostalgic aspects particularly well, and the remaining components simply don't make for a very entertaining experience.
  4. Decent, but it comes up short of ideal in just about every conceivable area.

    Colorful graphics and sharp control make the game fun to watch and play, but the old-school punch-and-kick action gets monotonous. [Dec 2003, p.146]

    It is not that the game doesn't have its fun moments, because it can be that, it is just that they are very short-lived and don't really go any further than the first level. Disappointing.
  7. 40
    While the basic gameplay engine is solid enough, TMNT forgets that less is sometimes more, and does a fine job of boring the player as a result.

    This game really makes me remember the good old days when TMNT were king. An instant classic.

    Listen Kiddes, I was a fan of TMNT back in the early 90's and we would of died to have a game this good.

    Complete disappointment. I was obsessed with Turtles in time on SNES. But this game is simply......crap. Really sad.
